London to Paris

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 =\

Any­ways, ‘Lon­don to Paris’.

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.

Custom Bicycles in NYC

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.
