Oregon Manifest

This blows me away!!  What creativity.  This is one of the primary reasons I got into cycling.  Ride, drink, create, repeat.  I love it, would love to attend next year.

Ride or Die

So tonight is the inaugural Bandito South Side ride and we have already had 2 near deaths, several calls to the police and one crash that destroyed a brand new light… With that said…. It’s been an AWESOME night!!!

Niner YAWYD

Niner created the best stem top cap in the world!! YAWYD (you are what you drink) caps let the world know what your favorite beer is the day, week, month, etc. I have one on my Surly and always will on whatever bike I’m riding. Unfortunately Niner rarely has them in stock due to high demand. Blevins Bicycle Co. has 2 in stock that I know of. Grab’em up!!

Bandito South Side Ride

It’s time to do this!!! Starting tonight, and every Thursday from here on out, I am participating in a night ride starting at Blevins Bicycle Company. It’s put on by Matt Blevins and will be a fun 5-10 mile ride ending at Bandito for food and drink!! Bandito South Side has free live music every night and Tess, the owner, is always welcoming with a glass of your favorite beer when you hit the bar. The mentality Blevins Bicycle Co. brings to the table is fun, safe, and welcoming. All bike shops and level of riders are always welcome.
