Farewell Handlebar Roll $130
New from Santa Fe-based Farewell is the Handlebar Roll, a minimal bikepacking bag for your flat or riser bars, yet this bag can fit between wide drops, but you’d probably want to pack it before you install it.

The bag is seam-sealed and uses extra TUFF XPAC fabric for XTREME weatherproofing. Opens on either side for easier access. Features 2 webbing straps to stow tent poles and whatnot. Those same straps can be used to secure an accessory bag yet to be released. Comes with 4 foam spacers to accommodate tricky setups, help with cable management and ensure an extra secure attachment.

FIRE AND ICE : María Ögn Guðmundsdóttir
The latest film in the series capturing the exploits of the Café du Cycliste Gravel Team takes us to Iceland and The Rift. The focus of the film is María Ögn Guðmundsdóttir, an Icelandic bike racing legend who has worked tirelessly to encourage other women to enjoy two-wheeled adventures, whilst also winning 20 Icelandic national championships across multiple racing disciplines.
Up The Coast
Richard Evans and his friends made a short film about riding up the east coast in the UK. This 200km ride was filled with sun, sand, rain, boats, and nuclear power stations…
L39I0N of Los Angeles – America’s first black-owned pro cycling team – is more than just a team; it’s a family. Metaphorically, and literally. In Tandem follows three sets of siblings as they train, dream, and navigate the imbalances that continue to characterize the sport.
Stuff we see on the ‘net that causes pause…
