Eroica California Registration Now Open

by editors on November 25, 2017

On the weekend of April 14-15, 2018 cyclists, vintage bike enthusiasts, and fans of classic, steel bikes will roll in to Paso Robles, California for the 2018 Eroica California. Don’t know what it is? It’s a retro cycling festival that goes a little like this:

Eroica participants are required to ride “historical bikes” or bikes preferably built in 1987 or earlier, but to take the vintage theme even further, many riders choose to wear authentic, vintage garb including wool jerseys, retro cycling goggles and lace-up shoes. Festivities on both days, including the Tuscan dinner, are open to the public and spectators are invited to watch the ride and welcome the riders at the finish line.

There are rides, shows, presentations, talks, discussions, and more. You know, those classic bike fetishist always know how to throw a crazy party, so this year should be fun. For the official details, please follow the jump or click here for the Eroica California website.

Nixon Puts A Santa Cruz On Your Wrist

by editors on October 5, 2017

Fans of The Syndicate can get a little Santa Cruz love on their wrist with a new limited edition collection of watches from Santa Cruz Skateboards and Nixon watches.

Nixon’s classic Time Teller is reimagined through the Santa Cruz lens, culminating in designs that are true to each brand. The iconic graphics featured within the collection include: the ‘Screaming Hand,’ the Rob Roskopp Arm, Jason Jessee Lady of Guadalupe and the Santa Cruz logo.

Sure, Santa Cruz bicycles are no longer owned by the people who own the skateboard company, but the logo will still look great with your new V10. (Sidenote: is Mr. Roskopp wearing his watch as we type? Anyone know?)

Best Young Riders, Worst TOC Jerseys

by editors on April 27, 2017

TAG Heuer rolled out their jerseys for the Amgen Tour of California’s best young riders and they have to be the ugliest jerseys we’ve ever seen for a world tour event. Designed by “art provocateur Alec Monopoly” the jerseys feature a chaotic spattering of spray can squirts and TAG logos that looks like, well high viz scribbling. Here’s how TAG explains it:

Though cycling and art are seemingly dissimilar, these pursuits have universal appeal as movement and creation are both fundamental instincts, regardless of country, background or age. TAG Heuer specializes in uniting divergent worlds, creating disruptive moments that highlight the avant-garde nature of the brand.

We can say one thing: it’s no real surprise that the jersey’s designer wears a mask. For the official word from the Tour of California, please follow the jump.

Patagonia’s CEO Speaks For The Trees

by editors on April 26, 2017

In a presidency that becomes more absurd with each day, the Trump administration is now moving to review all of the United State’s National Monuments and Patagonia’s CEO Rose Marcario doesn’t like it one bit. She says:

Our National Monuments were established after extensive public input because they provide unique and irreplaceable cultural, ecological, economic and recreational value worth protecting for our children and our grandchildren. As stewards of America’s federal public lands, the Trump administration has an obligation to protect these most special wild places. Unfortunately, it seems clear they intend to do the opposite.

In a statement released today (Wednesday, April 26, 2017) Marcario urges everyone who loves America’s public lands to contact their members of Congress and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to “express outrage at the Trump administration’s efforts to roll back National Monument protections.” For the official statement from Marcario, please follow the jump.
