Robin Williams: Appreciated

Robin

RIP

The last time everyone I knew was unmoored by a death it was Adam “MCA” Yauch.

Now Robin Williams.

Bike Hugger Magazine contributor Patrick Brady writes about him as an enthusiastic cyclist.

As a cyclist, his jokes about our proclivities, about the Tour de France, about the bike itself gave us permission to see ourselves through other eyes, to laugh at ourselves. What a gift.

And it seems wherever Robin traveled he stopped at a shop, including the one in Seattle where Mark V works.

EXO on Bikes


Back from vacation and finishing up Issue 15 that drops tomorrow, here’s a moment of zen – a video interlude with K-Pop boy band EXO riding bikes around on stage.

The fans go nuts.

In the Mountains: Chipseal

Hhg

Rode three flavors, grades actually, of Chipseal near La Pine Oregon, and Mt. Bachelor. The aggregate and tar was blended as crunchy, crunchier, and crunchiest. Even with a Ti bike, 290 TPI tires, and a carbon fork, the crunchiest sections made my hands and feet go numb.

Considering roads were originally made for cyclists, Chipseal is such a mixed blessing.

Roads are not merely paved or unpaved, smooth or rough, they are complex characters revealing their true natures when the rubber meets the road – Kent’s bike blog.

In the mountains, on Forest Service roads, you can ride for hundred of miles, and many of them will rattle your bones. The uneven, rough surface drains the momentum out of your legs.

Issue 15 drops next month and the theme is the mountains. We’ll have more stories about our rides, including this one on road, and dirt.

Sunriver

Hjj

A 3 hour ride turned into 4 when I got lost in the labyrinth of paths at Sunriver resort. On vacation, riding to and from Mt. Bachelor with stories to follow and another issue of our magazine next month.

RockShox: Prove Can’t Wrong


With the mountain-biking season now in full swing and Crankworx Whistler upon us, RockShox wanted to do something to celebrate those who progress the sport forward. Every year, we see things people once thought “can’t be done” get done. This short film called “Prove Can’t Wrong” is a salute all those who push boundaries to prove that “can’t” is a matter of opinion. We can’t wait to see what “can’ts” get proven wrong this year.

My can’t was a roadie returning to mountain biking…
