Shop Visit: Brixton Cycles

After being in chic London for a week, it was a huge breath of fresh air to arrive in Brixton and visit Brixton Cycles. The town is dirty, charmingly run down, chock full of rastas, and has one hell of a skatepark.  While most of London is tight suits with pointy shoes, and tight dresses with heels; the staff of Brixton was all dirty Carhartts.  Instantly I felt right at home, any one of these workers from the co-op would look indigenous to the Westbank. 

The shop is right outside of said skatepark, a 1970's concrete affair, that is by far the coolest skatepark I have ever seen or gotten to ride. Well, sort of gotten to ride, as I took a few laps around the snow covered park on a Surly Krampus. Just enough to crash and go sliding down a wet bowl and bash up my shins



Just look at this place, if you go to London you've got to stop by

I don't know what this means

We went to a local bar and Operation Ivy was playing as we stepped in. Like I said, it felt a lot like home



These last photos are from the remainder of our night in London as we were staggering around trying to find food at 11pm.

Huge thanks to the folks at Brixton for letting us poke around, and showing us incredible hospitality.

The Brixton Pound is a local currency designed to keep business and trade within Brixton and allow people to support local and independent business.
(I’m totally unaffiliated by the way. I just thinks its a great idea).

Jeff’s Western Odyssey

I headed out to Colorado a week ahead of NACCC's to meet up with my good friend Josh Culbertson of Avery County Cycles to do some camping and mountain biking in the Fruita and Moab area. Obviously the love of track, cross, and road bikes runs deep, but I was brought up a mountain biker in the backwoods of Northern Wisconsin. It was my first love, and the opportunity to trod the holy ground of the mtb mecca that is Moab was way too alluring to pass up.
