Riding in the Woods is Fun


Hurl is right and I saw this photo on Instagram, just as I was writing a post about Issue 35 Into the Woods, that dropped on Friday. Of all the words I’ve been writing about adventure, gravel, and roadies riding offroad on dirt

It’s really fun

are the most concise. We try to limit car sightings to one a hour, at max and sometimes don’t see them for hours. That’s what riding in the woods is about: no cars+fun. In the issue, I share stories about the Boone and Diverge, 1x11 road is reviewed too. The issue costs $3.99 or $14.00 annually. It’s available on iTunes and the Web.

One Day In April - Trailer


“One Day in April” is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the triumphs and failures of four collegiate cyclist teams competing to win the Little 500. The film is a bittersweet portrait of life in the midwest and the drama from training through race day.

And I don’t think we’ve seen any full-length media about the Little 500 since Breaking Away in 1979.

At a time when collegiate athletics is navigating an increasingly uncomfortable intersection of profit and competition, the Little 500 remains an example of pure sport in America’s heartland. Through the stories of the individuals who make up the Little 500 community, “One Day in April” is a testament to the virtue that sports build community and forge kinships rarely savored otherwise.

The expansive narrative of friendship, failure, and redemption plays out across a cast of characters that includes experienced veterans, accident-prone rookies, and alumni coaches who treat the Little 500 like it’s the Indianapolis 500. In a once-a-year event like this, there is no tomorrow.

They still race the Little 500.

N1NO 18th World Cup win

An adorable thing about the Aussies, is all their crazy sayings—now imagine one of those outback colloquialisms being said with a thick Swiss accent. That’s why I laughed so hard this morning when I read, “We are not here to fuck spiders.” In American parlance, that means, “Not here to fuck around, or “Here to get shit done.” And that’s exactly what Nino Schurter did in Cairns last weekend with his 18th World Cup Win. See the replay on Redbull and a quote from the best bike-biz PR I’ve read this year, maybe ever.

It’s quite a ways to travel for a 90 minute mountain bike race. With the change in time zones and climate, plus shipping all the equipment, this is a logistically difficult and expensive journey. This is why you better get something out of it. And this is exactly what SCOTT-Odlo MTB Racing did. Or how the Aussies would say: we are not here to fuck spiders!

That deserves a hashtag: #notfuckingspiders

The winning bike powered by the World Champion and the brand new 12 speed SRAM Eagle drivetrain.
