Watch Music for Free!

So glad this video is out!

“Music For Free” is a musical celebration of wild people and places on the Great Divide from Canada to Mexico. After half a decade of musical tours powered by a bicycle, musician and poet Ben Weaver will ride 2700 self-supported miles from Banff Canada to the US Mexico border carrying his banjo and guitar giving free concerts to the communities along the way. Following the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route on its 20th anniversary year the objective of this journey, aptly titled Music for Free, was to celebrate the people who have supported this iconic route and its riders while dissecting the question “What is wildness?”.

Edited, Directed and Filmed by Keenan DesPlanques
(This film was filmed completely from the power of Keenan’s legs, he rode the entire length of the route with Ben)

Producer and musician: Ben Weaver

Bell Goes Smart Video with Their Super 2R with 360fly


Bell Goes Smart Video with Their Super 2R with 360fly

Helmets provide a lot of real estate for technology but with all the action camera mounts, you end up with a lot of “bobble” weight. This week Bell Helmets announced a new 360-degree video integrated “smart” helmet, utilizing 360Fly. This helmet allows a 360º, 4K video capture and with the 360Fly app, you can edit and share before you even leave the trails. All this within Bell’s Super 2R design, which I would argue is one of the best on the market today.

Details at this time are limited and availability is estimated for fall. Pricing has not been set, so stay tuned. My only question: does it or will it come in black?
