Bicycle Family Tree


Not only would the research for this “Bicycle Family Tree” be quite time consuming, but the designers at Wyatt 9 also illustrated the entire poster…each bicycle. That’s impressive. Kickstarters are purchasing a copy of the final print in various sizes, and greater contributions get a t-shirt, name inscription and a vote for the three absent bikes in the piece. Well done Wyatt 9.

Distance Over Time


A short film about cyclist, James Golding, who attempted to ride the 7 Day Distance Challenge in France after surviving his first bout of cancer, only to be diagnosed again in 2011.

In the film, we learn about the things that drive James forward, how he overcomes the challenges in his life and what goes through his mind as he attempts to cycle over 220 miles per day. The message is clear; with the right mindset and determination a person is capable of incredible things.

London Share The Road PSA


I love this. It’s a Transport For London PSA that addresses road rage by all users (cyclists included), but seems to go beyond faulting poor transport habits and touches something deeper, maybe something more human. In the end it calls for a sense of calm, as if the problems we face on the road are unavoidable and maybe we need a new approach to their management. It’s a little pie-in-the-sky thinking, but a suitable reminder regardless.

Le Tour de What?

Civic Center Crit 2

video

SPF put this video together just about as fast as the races happened. This is a good look at what happens when Wolfpack takes over city hall and the streets that surround it in Downtown Los Angeles. Great video of a great day of races.

Stravasshole


It’s funny because it’s true. What?..any opportunity to take a good natured jab at Strava is ok with me.

Froome Rides the Chunnel


Ok Le Tour, we’ll throw you a bone. Chris Froome of Team Sky becomes the first rider to cycle the entire 50k of the English Chunnel. So yeah, that happened. Now let the rest of us do it.

Cyclist Getting Charged?


So yeah, this is happening. According to the LA Times, after this Orange County cyclist gets bottles thrown at him while riding in the bike lane, and after he submitted the video to the authorities in order to press charges against the offenders, he’s now facing potential charges of “words in public likely to illicit a violent reaction,” because….uhh….that’s a thing. What? I’m at a loss for words here, and if I had them, they might illicit a violent reaction or something. Is this highly unconventional or is this just standard car-centric LA procedure?
