BikeTrails is a ride diary by STOPNOWHERE, but instead of just being a traditional log, it’s also a way to engage with a larger BikeTrails community online, challenging each other in a Strava-like way, but with a more analog approach.

Idaho to Oregon: The Final Days

IDAHO TO OREGON : THE FINAL DAYS from Kate Dougherty on Vimeo.

Ben Towill and friends rode from Colorado to Oregon, documenting the trip along the way. I’m digging the 70s surf movie feel of their videos, this final piece being the last leg of the trip, concentrating more on the details of riding rather than the journey itself. Towill explains the reason behind this ride along parts of the TransAmerican Bike Trail,

I am riding for a New York charity called Just Food, an organization working to make NYC a healthier place to live and eat, and will be working with them on their Youth Community Chefs program.These inspiring young people are participating in urban farming and gardening initiatives and then sharing their knowledge of and passion for good food with their neighbors.

FLUX by Torch Update


Disclosure: I pre-ordered one of these FLUX packs through their initial Kickstarter campaign and have been anticipating it’s release for almost 1 year and a half now. Torch recently let backers know that after the release of the T1 helmet, the FLUX pack is almost ready to follow, but first they are pushing forward with a stretch campaign to grow their line of products. The pack will still be available to initial backers first, but you can also get a first production release through helping fund this stretch campaign as well. I’m really looking forward to putting this bag through it’s paces and reporting back with a review.
