The 2017 Portland N.O.I.S.E. Ride

The 2017 Portland N.O.I.S.E. Ride went off this weekend and it was seriously a wet one! The N.O.I.S.E. Ride stands for The N.orth O.regon I.nternational S.ingle speed and has been going on for over 12 years. Cycling is supposed to be fun and the Portland N.O.I.S.E. Ride takes you back to the days of popping wheelies down alley ways and crashing on muddy baseball fields. Smiles for miles! 

Everyone met at Fresh Pot on Mississippi. While some rides sipped coffee others got the party started. It's never too early for a beer on a rainy weekend in Portland. 

Last years winner Scott Wanhala of Poler CX led the charge.

Back alleys and bridges to the first stop of the day. 


It's never too early...

Bike-Buzkashi is a staple at the Portland N.O.I.S.E. Ride.

"The game of Buzkashi seems to have originated in Afghanistan where it is still the country’s national sport.

Legend has it that the game was first invented centuries ago when Afghan tribes would gallop up on horseback to steal a rival tribe’s goats from their flock. Both defensive and offensive strategies were used which developed into a formalized game whose rules are to this day a bit mysterious."

The Last Battle at Barlow Ever...

I was totally planning on racing the last Battle at Barlow but I crashed really fucking hard on my mountain bike. The dirt in the PNWis going off and I am lucky to have walked away without serious injury. So instead of racing, I got to drink beers and hang out with friends. Well, I took some photos as well! Enjoy!

P.S. If you find a photo of yourself here please steal it and use it for whatever you'd like. =)

Team Coastal at Trophy Cup Race 1

Cyclocross is officially going off in Portland and the first Trophy Cup race of the year is a wrap. 


We started a team this year! Friends, cool kits, bikes, racing and beer. It doesn't get any better!  

Clint and crew put together a fantastic race. Trophy Cup has seemed to become a new classic in the Portland race scene symbolically lighting the torch for the beginning of the cyclocross season. The course is long and flowy with plenty of challenges per lap. The crowd of people by the barriers and trees creates an immensely fun energy that racers and spectators look for all season long.

A big thank you for everybody who came out last night for first week of Trophy Cup. We had a few hiccups with registration and I want to extend an apology for that. We held the races as long as we could but I think a couple of folks may have missed their race. If that happened to you, get in touch. Your race is covered next week and I’ll buy you a tamale. I promise, the tamales are really good.
