Local builder and bud Chris Wright is making his way down the Great Divide trail on his loaded Salsa Fargo starting at the top in Banff, Alberta with a friend. He recently started uploading pictures of his journey so far and jealous doesn’t quite express how I feel looking at these views from the saddle. What does one pack on such an epic journey? Check out his gear list for yourself. Good luck with your journey Chris, looks like you’re having the time of your life.

Photographer and videographer Peter Sutherland followed six cyclists from different disciplines of cycling and personal backgrounds to produce short but moving documentaries on each one. Each subject has their own relationship with cycling and it’s inspiring to see how they’ve worked it into their lives as well as how it’s shaped some of their lives entirely. Can’t recommend watching these enough, check them here.
My buddy Dave out in Oakland builds bikes for folks out in the bay area. The style of most of his builds are generally all-rounders and tourers but each one is specifically built up to the customers input and needs in a bike. Check out the rest here.
