Four-wheeled Friends.

Prestige Skate Shop. They ride bikes and peddle skateboards. Their team is full of young rippers and local nice guy/world traveler Colin Clark makes killer videos of them. Get yer peep on. -P77

The weather is here, wish you were nice.

It was 39 degrees in Boise today, about 35 degrees warmer than it was early last week. Or as C43 likes to say "balmy".

Is that a banana soul in your pocket or... ?

This record was made in the late '60s and has a Caldwell address on it. 
Long lost WBC brethren?

WBC on the WWW

Stevil dropped this on his blog on Monday. New Fad 1999.
That same day he let us glimpse into the future of Cyclocross:

Bike Yard Sale Today.

Local Pro and good guy Remi McManus is having a 'Bike Yard Sale' today at 2814 James St. There will be years of equipment and gear for sale from Remi's extensive racing career. I wonder if he's selling a certain stars and stripes jersey. We'll have to go and find out. Sale starts at 10.

HTATBL is dead. Long live AHTBM!

Those of you who have followed the Swobo blog, How To Avoid The Bummer Life, may have been wondering why there has been no new activity since the fourth of August. Well let me tell you what's up. The blogs curator, the venerable Stevil Kinevil was laid off due to the hard times that we all find ourselves in these days. But hey, there are no hard feelings and swobo remains awesome and deserving of your support.
The good news is that Stevil has launched a new blog to keep himself busy and keep us all entertained. The new blog is entitled All Hail the Black Market and, as we sit here on the cusp of greatness, I urge you to check it out.

On The Map of 'Cycling Chic'.

Velopirate and local alleycat phenom Jason Bauer has put Boise in the spotlight of international cycling. That is if cyclists from around the globe are privy to the Rapha Continental project.
Rapha Performance Roadwear has this team of US cyclists that have been riding some of this countries most epic road rides all summer long. Jason's "Big Loop" caught the attention of these dudes and they showed. It so happens it was the last stop on their summer tour. 150 miles. 12,000 feet of climbing. 9 hours on the bike.
Take a look at the Rapha Continental Road Journal for the story. Make sure you also check out the 'Short Films from the Road' section for some real inspiration.

Stolen!

Maria, friend to the WBC, had her bicycle stolen this week.
Please be on the lookout. It's blue. It's a Schwinn. She misses it.
Contact her here with any info: minboise@gmail.com

Awesome Beyond Words...

This clip was sent to me from Jonny Hamachi of Consequences Dictate. Make sure you watch the whole thing as I'm sure you will never again see a pair of saddle sniffing priests doing what they do. Priceless.

Let's Go, Five One Oh.

I stole this from the Bummer Life fair and square. I have a special place in my heart for Oakland. I used to live right around the corner from Stevil(of HTATBL) and his store front in North Oakland, actually. Yep, I lived in a bright pink house......in Oakland.
