Ponderosa Cyclery Pronghorn Shirts $25/$28
The Pronghorn is the fastest land mammal on North America. Yes, faster than your favorite ‘cross racer, or ultra athlete. Their butts drive us nuts too, with a big fluffy heart-shaped rump. Celebrating the speed demons of the basins and ranges, Ponderosa made these shirts, featuring NEBRASKA on the back with a Pronghorn skull on the front. Available in short and long sleeves and shipping now from Ponderosa.
Ritchey is proud to continue its support of factory rider Ben Frederick and his campaign for traumatic brain injury relief and mental health awareness.
What started as a washout on a simple training ride quickly developed into a life-changing brain injury that changed Ben’s trajectory in his professional cyclocross circuit. In the aftermath of his recovery, Ben knew his athletic endeavors had to be about more than placings and standings. From that, The Small Monsters Project was born.
Now in its second year, The Small Monsters project is not only a megaphone for TBI and mental health awareness but a fundraising apparatus with all proceeds going to LoveYourBrian, a foundation dedicated to helping those suffering from TBI on their road to recovery.
As with last year, The Small Monsters Project is selling raffle entries offering prizes from Ben’s sponsors, including a 50th Anniversary Swiss Cross frameset from Ritchey, a cycling kit from Ornot, a wheelset of choice from Zipp, an original painting from Chris McNally and more.
Entries are $25 each and are unlimited to the number of entries per individual. 100% of funds earned will go to LoveYourBrain. Each entry will receive a thank you stick card from Ben to commemorate their donation.
The raffle closes January 10th, with winners picked then.

There’s no doubting that as we get older, the physical boundaries that dictate our lives get bigger, broader and opportunities open up. The world, so to speak, is our oyster.
The Dirt Dashes are self-supported gravel and bikepacking events in Britain. Enter here for 2023: https://www.entrycentral.com/dirtdash Find out more here: http://dirtdash.cc/ Filmed & directed by Markus Stitz. Supported by Surly Bikes UK.
The Eden Ridge Roundabout is an overnight bikecamping route that starts and ends in Powers—a small, rural town nestled in the Southern Oregon Coast Range. This “gateway to the Siskiyous” provides a half-paved, half-gravel route with 68 miles and 6400 feet of elevation gain. Powers brings riders into a beautiful, isolated valley surrounded by lush green hills on the South Fork of the Coquille River.
Dallas Mignano joined Michael Roderick, Al House, and Gary Rayor on the first official group ride for this newly developed route in late November of 2022. There was frost in the valleys as we crossed over creeks, so we chilled in more ways than one. Over time, we’re hoping to further develop and share even more bikepacking routes in the Oregon Coast Range. Subscribe and stay tuned!
