Friday Video: Cycle Oregon – The Rapha way

0 Comments 26 November 2010

Somehow we feel that today you have more time to check out the traditional Friday video. So grab another coffee and if you feel peer pressure: Pretend you are cleaning your (unplugged) keyboard or just reserve a meeting room for yourself for the coming 20 minutes.

As a mountain biker I prefer the forest and off-road environments, so most of the time I end up watching helmet cam runs like the one we posted last week or listen to the poetry of the Atherton family. Or then it’s bike-mastering skills à la MacAskill – I have to admit: I watched it 3 times in a row.

The only ones who get me out of the woods and on to the road are the boys (and in this case also girls) from the Rapha Continental Club. This time they participated in the 457 mile Cycle Oregon event. At least in some kind of way. The true spirit of biking adventures including outdoor camping, wine tastings and … rodeo. Yet another Rapha quality video and an additional diary and photo blog helping you to forget the snowy landscapes outside.

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
