Coffee Outside Adventure Ride

A few months back Carl started up a early Sunday morning coffee ride here in Kansas City. After a few weeks of rain we finally got out again for the fifth (my second) ride of the spring. This time we headed out to the abandoned reservoir in Kansas City’s northeast side. Coffee was a bust. But the ride was great and much needed for all of us.

If you are in the Kansas City area and would like to join our group ride check here for more info. We ride at a leisurely roll and have fun, drink coffee, and take photos. Or if you happen to be in the West 39th district, or at Mud Pie around 9am on Sundays, join us.

Marc picked up a first gen Leader Kagero a few months back. I finally got around to shooting a few photos of it. This thing is slick. Oh… and check out that Factory 5  chainring.

Marc Did Not Die

Marc Did Not Die 22

While exploring an abandoned reservoir, we jokingly told Marc it would be awesome if he did a track stand on top of the tower. This tower is roughly 30 feet of the ground and the platform is maybe 8′ x 8′. Sounds a little scary? Well, Marc stepped back, looked up and the rest is history. Thanks for not dying Marc!

More photos from that moment HERE!

Kind of. I’ve been taking a much needed break from the blog, but I haven’t stopped riding, shooting, or exploring. There will be more to come in the future. Stay Tuned…

Longer Days & Longer Rides…Finally!

Now that the weather is starting to warm up (and stay warm), and we have longer light, there will definitely be longer days in the saddle. I spent most of last weekend in the Westbottoms district of Kansas City. This is a popular area for photographers and urban explorers alike. Even with everyone fighting to get that one shot, there are still plenty of places to escape and explore. I thought I took more photos while I was out, but I must have been soaking it all in (sometimes that’s better).

Slowly Heading in a New Direction

I posted towards the end of the 2015 that the blog will be taking on a new direction in 2016. The transition will be slow (maybe a late winter to late spring launch), but the base is already there. I want to ensure everything I want(ed) this blog to be will/can happen. This is the first post towards that “New Direction.” I have been spending more and more time behind the lens lately. Mostly exploring my city at night, and interestingly enough, following the same paths/place I ride throughout the seasons. I do want to point out, that I WILL NOT be leaving the cycling life behind. If it wasn’t for cycling, the “new direction” would never have happened. I view it more as an evolution or creative growth.

Over the next coming months expect to see more of this “new direction” (It will be more explained as I figure out how to put it all into words) and a continued love for cycling.
