The third annual Garage Race happened recently in Prague, with this video documenting the party and racing of the evening. Nice shooting and riding, looks like some classic sketchball fun.
National Bike Month is here yet again and the good advocates at People for Bikes have released this PSA with a twist. Instead of taking the usual bike vs. car approach, they’ve decided to appeal to the better sides of both of us, asking to “roll together”. After all, neither of us are leaving the roads, so we should probably find common ground as soon as possible. Sign their Roll Together promise here that asks us all to:
- Look out for my fellow travelers — on bikes, in cars, and on foot.
- Keep my cool with other riders and drivers.
- Recognize that there are real people behind the steering wheel and the handlebars.
Follow along with their #Rolltogether hashtag as well.
I can’t imagine going this fast on such a tight track, but am certainly glad that others are willing to do it for my enjoyment. The folks bailing over the edge in this MET Fixed Adrenalin Tournament are fun to watch, if perhaps not the most comfortable to experience. See more at www.met-helmets.com
Full Disclaimer : Legs & Lungs is a project of mine that is meant to act as a motivational force for “the culture of superhumans”, namely runners and cyclists. The entire stock of L&L apparel has recently been diverted to a benefit event so nothing is for sale at this point, but the videos, Facebook page and Instagram feed are still alive and kicking.
This latest video is an interview with ex-Haste The Day singer, Jimmy Ryan, touching on many facets of his life and character, but namely addressing his foray into the world of cycling both as a new passion and a way to drop weight and turn his health around for the better. It’s not for those of short attention span, but I believe it’s worth it.
The Statement bike rack varies little in function from most wall mounted bike racks on the market today, but the style and manufacturing offer something a little out of the ordinary. Instead of a piece of wood or plastic protruding from the wall when not in use, the Statement rack folds up flat to mimic a piece of modern art. The manufacturing is accomplished through sourcing USA wood, which is bended, sanded and laminated by hand in the Statement workshop.
Keeping to the simplicity of the piece itself, the incentives for funding are a Thank You, a branded beanie, and the rack itself. No more, no less. With 17 days to go they are just over halfway to the ultimate funding goal.
