1. is the story of three man, one dream and 80 years of cycling in Iceland…

    "Rough stuff begins where the tarmac ends"

    "Long before bikes got fat tires, full suspension and carbon fiber frames, the urge to push the pedals off road found its way into the hearts of riders. One group, the UK-based Rough Stuff Fellowship has united such riders for decades, since a time when crossing rugged terrain was truly for the dedicated adventurer. "Horace and the Rough Stuff Fellowship" tells the story of Horace Dall, an astronomer who—80 years ago—single-handedly crossed Iceland's moonlike central desert in his suit and tie, solo, with just a napkin-sized map and the stars as his guide. The film tells Dall's story as well as the like-minded adventurers who came after him, only to find it had (sort of) been done before. The film, with its stunning high-definition shots of the landscape, examines the eternal questions: Why do we go off road? Why leave the comforts of home? Are there any new adventures to be had? The answers of course (if there are any) lie in the hearts of individuals. And if you keep looking, you're already there." COOLHUNTING.COM

  2. Tony and I are proud to share Breadwinner Cycle's latest video, a tribute to my first-ever Oregon Outback ride. I rode 360 miles in 28 hours, 4 minutes, which meant not sleeping, seeing some amazingly rugged parts of Oregon and getting to know the Breadwinner B-Road. Riding the B-Road, I was the first rider to finish the Outback.

    Tony and I based the B-Road design on decades of riding gravel roads. Spending my youth training and riding on the rural roads of Iowa lead me to win the Trans Iowa gravel road race twice. We like to think the first ever Oregon Outback victory is proof that we know how to make a great gravel racer. The B-Road is a versatile, durable and fast adventure bike built with disc brakes, room for 40mm tires, fenders and light rack capability. While I prefer it for gravel roads, the B-Road works just as well as a fast commuter, light touring rig or a winter training bike. --Ira Ryan

  4. UPDATE:

    On July 13, 2014, Rob English crashed while racing at the front the Tour of Aufderheide. He suffered multiple broken bones and other serious injuries and is still in the hospital. His doctors have said that his road to recovery is going to be long. Many know Rob as a top level competitor or as an A-list custom frame builder who has taken top honors in the North American Handmade Bicycle Show—or that he is an all-around great guy. There has been an outpouring of support and desire to reach out and help. As a self-employed frame builder, it will likely be some time before Rob can wield a torch at English Cycles as he recovers. The local cycling community and community at large has come together to help lessen the financial impact of this so that he can concentrate on recuperation and rehabilitation. Please help in any way you can, here.giveforward.com/fundraiser/1b45/rob-english-s-medical-and-recovery-costs?utm_source=facebook

    In the last 15 years bike building has become more and more automated. We are proud to be able to partner with and feature a bike builder at the top of his game that is keeping true craftsmanship alive. This video was created during a trip to Oregon to meet and ride with Rob English as we brought a new custom bike into the world! More info on the project can be found at englishcycles.com and at mystoller.com.
