I haven’t traveled from London to Paris straight, but did oversleep and miss a tour coach along with my roommate this past March (too much exploring/partying I guess, and lack of sleep). We hopped on the Eurostar bullet train to try and catch the rest of the Contiki group at the London Pub, but were 10-minutes late and had to catch the next one =\
AllOrNothingproductions.com present ‘London to Paris’, directed by Grace Ladoja, documents 10 riders from all over the world making the track bike journey from London to Paris to meet Lance Armstrong as the Tour De France 2009 comes to a close.

Had the opportunity to cross the Golden Gate Bridge last weekend with the homie Mike. It got somewhat windy that day up there, but not too bad. Anyways, a must to do if you ever have the chance.
I had this growing interest lately of getting myself a bike. It’s been a minute since I’ve had one to be honest. I remember having fun w/ my generic-BMX back in the P.I. with my bowl-cut. I remember going through the streets with our generic-BMX crew and hoping over speed bumps; making ramps; and eating it hard on the pavement filled with small rocks and pebbles. We were fortunate we didn’t crack our skulls as we got mad air most of the time, only to be brought back down to Earth by the Law of Physics.
Anyways, check this video out by Rocketboom correspondent Ella Morton when she interviews Josh Hadar about his hand sculpted custom bicycles.
PS. For owners who are bike officianados, road or mountain bike? In terms of riding versatility for street, hills, dirt, etc. (I’m guessing mountain?)
