Rooted Vermont: Return to Gravel 2019 @rootedvermont @1lauraspencer @iamtedking

"The overall vibe of the ride and the event was hard to put into words. It somehow felt both welcoming and exclusive at the same time, was super challenging but also incredibly relaxed, and had the professionalism of a big event but somehow felt like I just stumbled upon a great group ride. I don't think you can plan any of those things, but is a direct result of the promoters, friends, and participants." Matt B, Tampa, FL Filmed by Ansel Dickey // Vermont Social

Salsa Cycles Presents: Iglaak @salsacycles #fat-bike #packraft

Salsa Cycles Presents: Iglaak from Salsa Cycles on Vimeo.

Alaska’s Seward Peninsula lies just below the Arctic Circle. The protuberant peninsula is the millennia old home to the Inupiat Eskimo, situated in the northwest of Alaska - a land that stirs the adventurer’s spirit and kindles the insatiable. Visions of paleo-Arctic ancestors, sweeping tundra, rugged mountains, winding rivers, compacted beaches, intact ecosystems, and a land before contemporary time excite the Iglaak – the traveler, stranger, and visitor.
This short film is a snapshot of a fat-bike and packraft tour through the Imuruk Basin, the villages of Mary's Igloo, Brevig Mission, Teller, and Nome.

California Golde #bikemovie @Kodak @BedrockSandals @SwiftIndustries @TheRadavist

REI Presents: Engaging The Curve @REI

Graham and Shannon have been dating for 5 years and currently live together in Bend, OR. They’ve each had professional athletic careers in two very different sports: Ultimate Frisbee and Alpine Climbing. This is the story of how they share their respective sports with each other, and how the idea of learning to mountain bike was inspired by their community and environment. Together they will step back into the mindset of beginners as they learn to mountain bike. With crashes and frustrations alongside the joy of progression, they whoop and swear their way through this comedic and painful learning curve. With some (but probably not enough) experience under their belts, they head for the remote hills of Eastern OR to test out their new skills. Inspired by friends’ stories of mountain bike packing in wild parts of the world, they explore the wilderness in their backyard while seeking out engaging terrain to shred. As they wrap up their journey, they reflect on the experiences of learning to bike and how it helped them build a stronger relationship with each other and their environment.

Oh Deer! Cyclists and deer collide

Mt. Lemmon, AZ around mile marker 17. The end result is a shattered bicycle, some road rash, and a broken foot. You can see my back wheel in the video, we were both very lucky it wasn’t worse. @theracingapparel @mellowvelobikes
