Here it is! The first part of the AWOL project and the infamously-epic Transcontinental Race!
“London to Istanbul within two weeks, overcoming more than 3100km, 30.000m of altitude gain and crossing 14 european borders. Unsupported, following a route of their choice, day and night, rain or shine, crossing the whole european continent: We went AWOL with Recep Yesil and Erik Nohlin on the mighty Transcontinental Race.

This is the twelfth layout of the 2013 PiNP Calendar, entitled “The Constant Climb”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
We’ve all read the metaphors eluding to the inherent connection of the bicycle and life’s struggles. You’ll find none of that here. This is the last month of the 2013 PiNP Calendar and I think this photo best represents the goal of the site, without even stating anything. Next year, I’ll be making a rather large change and I hope you’ll stick around for the ride!

Yes, just 20 km from their new digs in San Francisco, Erik and Sofia have found new stomping grounds for the Great Escape. Of course, you know, Erik’s got other things up his sleeve as well….
Jon Bailey is a bit of a legend in Colorado. Hell, I’m sure his legacy resonates at least to Japan at this point. He’s resourceful to say the least, which leads right into the latest from Yonder Journal. How can a Comfort Inn cup hold magical, healing powers? Head on over to Yonder Journal to find out!
I can’t think of anything to write here, aside from “whoa”. Jenny’s photo from her recent 200k Del Puerto Brevet has me jonesin’ for some California roads.
… I spy Dan Chabs in his undies. Oh and some seriously amazing roads!
I’m pretty sure most readers of this site can identify with the mood in this video (shut up SoCal). Winter blues are setting in on everyone, but the Pici Bici guys still go out and ride. As you should too.
At this point, we’ve all come to accept the fact that the Brovet is cursed! Yonder Journal was in Austin for Brovet #04 this past weekend and after all the warm weather we had the past few weeks, mother nature turned on us yet again.
The temperature dropped over 40 degrees in 7 hours and as we set out into the mid-30 degree, rainy, windy weather, all we could do was laugh. Ok, so no one cried, but we were all pretty broken.
Even though we didn’t finish the route I planned, we all completed the altered course. Check out a few Instagram photos from the ride below! Of course, there will be more from Yonder Journal and myself in the future…
The guys from Yonder Journal are in Austin for 48 hours, 30 of which, we’ll be spending riding 300 miles on a route I’ve pulled together. For now, the ride is being called the Enchanted Rock Permanent.
Even though the weather was in the 80′s here all week, tomorrow, it’s supposed to be in the low 30′s, rainy and a 20 mph headwind tomorrow. So, what I’m saying is, it’ll be interesting!
