Late last summer, a group of cyclists got together in Northern California with Giro to try out their New Road cycling line. While there, I was told to not worry about shooting photos but I still did. Some of which made it to their ad campaign, others made it into my hoard drive where they sat for months.
With the New Road line out now, I can post these and what better time than a Friday afternoon. I’m back in Cali on Monday and I can’t wait, especially after looking through these photos again.
Tools of the trade:
Fuji Neopan 400 / Fuji 400 ProH
Yesterday I was in bed, with food poisoning all day (funny how I didn’t get sick at all in China) and so I didn’t get to post any weekend stokedness. It’s not too late. Get out and seek this.
Yes, these roads are as beautiful as they look here. Except, I heard one of the teams died at the hands of a hungry pack of drop bears? Check out more at Rapha.
The newest issue of Steel Magazine will be available mid-March and I like what I see.
Things to look for in Steel 05: Death Spray Custom, English Two wheel specialist custom artist, french artist «Lucky Left Hand» Steven Burke, American filmmaker Lucas Brunelle, photographs of london rider Greg Falski, an exploration in the world of vintage cycling, analysis of the design and the commuter wear, the «the Way I Roll» videos by Peter Sutherland, or the mountain rides of the French RocknRollin team members, not to mention the fashion series by Jean-Pacôme Dedieu, Ronan Mérot, Pierre Dal Corso and Fred Margueron, as well as still life of François Jorez, Louis David Najar and Pierre Mahieu.

While the Fixed Mag cover is a beautiful sealed road, this road epitomizes unsealed beauty. Andy posted this around the beginning of the New Year and I was holding off to post it so I didn’t jinx my trip back to Melbourne. I’ll be staring down this frontage road once again and I can’t wait. This truly is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and having ridden it already, maybe it’ll be easier? Who knows. Andy and Dan are already threatening to “break me again“…

Sorry for the lack of updates this weekend. Tracko’s been in town and all we’ve been doing is riding and partying. Hey, it was the weekend, right? He heads back to Cali tomorrow and regular posting will commence.
In the meanwhile, I hope you had a great weekend.
Over the past year, I’ve had the absolutely amazing experience of riding extensively in California but this last trip might have been my favorite. We rode on the 1, the 128 and in Geyserville. From the Redwoods, to the coast and dry, arid hills, the scenery kept me shooting my 35mm point and shoot, mid pedal stroke. Check it out below!
