Video Fridays-4/11/14

Here we go again. Another round of videos to brighten your day like a possible-oh-it-looks-like-a-nice-day-wait-its-rainning. Spanning the world wide web to bring you moving pixels of velo love sensation.

Title: Brillibrilliant / Unicorn Racing Dream

Seen on: Urban Velo
Description: I’m not immersed in professional-esque racing culture, and probably a lot of you aren’t either, but I can appreciate these road teams that bring a more grounded approach to road racing culture and maybe making themselves more accessible to everyday riders like ourselves who equally enjoy a good spin around town. The Unicorn Racing team has coupled with the Hotel AM Brillantengrund to support their racing endeavors and offer something to riders of all stripes in the process.

The Vienna hotel sponsor offers affordable rates for locals and traveling cyclists, supplying pasta nights, group rides, room space for bikes, and insider information for area rides.

Title: Urban Legend Cyclewear
Seen on: Urban Velo
Description: If you want to ride on a bike backwards…helmet-less…drinking alcohol…while also looking stylish, apparently Budapest, Hungary is the place to do it. Poor riding advice aside, the new Adventurers collection by Urban Legend is designed for the urban cyclist who is just as fashion conscious as they are in need of all-weather materials. The summer collection consists of pack away jackets and cape-dresses that also double as pillows when crumpled up.

Check out the full collection: http://urbanlegend.cc

Street Artist hit the Street. Stanridge Cycles x EINE for Red Hook Crit No.7

Title: Chrome and Crosby Press
Seen on: Urban Velo
It’s not that Chrome needs OUR help, but I really enjoy this interview video and the straightforward, no crap style of Chrome president Steve McCallion. There aren’t too many companies that have been around so long, are so successful, and appeal to such a broad audience, yet have retained the spirit of their humble beginnings. Steve seems to embody the Chrome brand as if it’s an extension of his personality. And we all know they don’t make crappy bags either. I have yet to visit a Chrome storefront, but I’ll certainly make the trip should I be close enough. Or, hey Steve, wanna open one in Indianapolis?

Title: Red Hook Crit Art Installation
Seen on: Urban Velo
Artist, Eric Corriel, was asked to create an installation for this year’s Red Hook Crit that just went down in Brooklyn. Last year he projected an animation onto a warehouse wall, but this year wanted to combine the projection with the riders themselves. As Corriel describes his piece,

“I was first asked to participate in the Red Hook Crit in 2012 and for that iteration I projected an animated abstraction of a bicycle race onto a warehouse. For 2013 I removed all elements of abstraction and put my art in direct contact with the race participants and projected onto (them and) the track itself. Instead of the art being about its subject, now it’s an inseparable part of it.”

See all of Corriel’s work here.

Congratulations to Neil Bezdek-Winner of Red Hook Crit.

The Red Hook Criterium is all grown up in it’s 5th year since it’s rather underground beginnings as a birthday party for cyclist David August Trimble. David’s family was one of the early innovators of carbon fiber used in bicycle frames and now he’s pioneered his own cycling classic in a neighborhood he’s also [...]

Title: Hoodride Cycles
Seen on: Urban Velo
I love this little bio of Derrick in Phoenix who was annoyed with the soul-sucking red tape of running a business, so decided to just fix rides out of his backyard in an almost purposefully looking ramshackle garage. He talks about the stresses of doing it for the love, but also the value and reward of “localism”. Good on you Derrick.

Title: One Day in April-Documentary on the little 500-trailer.
Seen on: Urban Velo
The 2013 Little 500
qualifications took place in Bloomington, Indiana yesterday, just before the weather turned stupid and started snowing all over the place. With that in mind (the race, not the weather), this project needs one last push to come to fruition. The documentary, One Day in April, follows four teams as they prepare for this year’s Little 500 race, showing their passion and dedication to extremely amateur racing, the surprisingly hilly and beautiful terrain in Southern Indiana, along with the storied history of this unparalleled race. Many of you probably know the race primarily through the movie Breaking Away or our recent article in Issue 32, but this documentary gives a direct and intimate portrayal of the race’s story up to this point.

There are only 3 days left for the video to reach funding and incentives start with free digital downloads, t-shirts, photos, etc.
