Do it. Do it. Do IT.
The weekend. It doesn’t mean much to some folks, while others set their clocks by it. This little short is a reminder to me that getting out is necessary. Even in the big city- an overnight trip can rejuvenate and reconnect you with the things that are important. So this weekend, or next Tuesday, get out there. Explore. Pedal. Sleep under the stars. And don’t forget to breathe.
An interesting process with what looks like a lot of quality control. I suppose there is a reason my Campagnolo chains outlast anything else I’ve ridden.
Bill Nye rides the solar system in 2.5 miles and gets super heated about Pluto. Start at 3:45 for the short version. I’m going to bring this up with him next time I see him at Green Lake. Also THIS.
Albert Hofmann and his LSD…
Santa Cruz brought out a new video for The Jackal- their dirt jump bike. It stars Logan Peat, Josh Bryceland and a beautiful 1949 GM 4101 Union Pacific Streamliner- as well as some great CA shot locations. I want to make it down to Santa Cruz to see the Casey family and ride some of the prettiest coast (in my opinion) of California.
Remember Massan? He’s still riding a track bike and getting rad in the streets. Chrome is doing a live web release of a new film he’s in showcasing the Barrage Cargo. Filmed in Portland. Check it out.
Chrome Industries announces the live screening of its first short film this Friday, December 13th at noon west coast time. Chrome will temporarily take over its website for the screening from 12:00 to 12:30 pm. The Chrome Crew worked with Portland natives Kamp Grizzly to document Massan Fluker taking his track bike and Chrome’s new Barrage Rolltop to the hills and bridges of Portland. The final 3 minute short includes some of the best riding Portland has to offer including an epic decent of Burnside at +40 mph. Set your phone alarms for noon this Friday to catch the live screening. Spread the word.
A touching video getting at what often is the root of the problem between motorists and cyclists, a break down in communication and a lack of understanding. What would your letter say?
Pretty ridiculous and toally fun to watch, Road Bike Party 2 with Martyn Ashton and some special guests. I’d recommend keeping your volume on mute however as the backing music is horrendous. I’m sure you’ve seen it, but if you missed it: Road Bike Party the original.
