The 2013 Feel My Legs, I’m A Racer ride is officially in the books and the dudes from Boyz on the Hoodz put together this video recap of all the brutality. This looks like such a fun and crushing ride. Don’t sleep on it next year.
Matt Ruscigno, the organizer of the event, has a recap on his site as well.
Informal fast laps around town with friends are generally a good time. Wolfpack Hustle STL does a few on the mostly empty night time streets.
Y’all should know that this Friday is Bike To Work Day. In case you don’t know, film production company, Imagery with Impact, has created this promotional video contrasting the experience of a bike commuter against a car commuter starting their days. Admittedly, this is a romanticized piece. The cyclist has perfect weather, gets no flats, doesn’t get swerved or yelled at, and basically has an idyllic commute into work. With that said, this DOES happen, and even with all the normal frustrations that can pop up on a commute into work, the accomplishment always outshines the doldrum of car commuting. If you’ve been commuting for years, keep at it. If you’re new to the whole idea, watch this video and join a ride in your area to get a taste of what it’s all about.
We’ve featured Josh Estey’s videos before, and now we share his latest. Fixed Gear California follows an ill-advised tour along the coast on a two-speed fixed/free build. No maps, an overly ambitious goal and a blown out hub cut the trip short, but the video sure is nice.
Sure to go viral like the rest of his videos, this webseries from RedBull follows Danny Macaskill as he faces down and overcomes injury in order to prepare for his biggest project yet, that will involve Macaskill creating his own indoor playground for an upcoming video. It’s great to see a video that gets away from just stunts and instead shows some of the struggles of elite athletes and the lengths they must go to keep their body and mind at peak performance.
