The Van Isle Badass 200

Kate leading Mical through the fog. - Eiry Bartlett's photo
A couple of our close friends took on a rugged two-day tour spearheaded by Eiry Bartlett this July. 

While sun, heat & blue skies have graced Vancouver Island for most of the summer, these intrepid ladies managed to land on a damp weekend for their 200km trip. 

As (non)participants in the online bike blogger world, we at Stuckylife HQ are psyched to see Eiry's excellent photos and reportage featured on Prolly Is Not Probably The Radavist.

Cyclopacking the Sooke Hills - p/b Brodie Bike's Meat Hornland

Our good friend and co-consiprator Matt "Meat" Hornland seems to have rattled some screws loose. 

Historically a fixie-kid turned roadie, Matt has backed off the mental bolts after a few seasons of high-level cyclocross racing and some time ripping hardtails on the north shore. This evolution in dirt has him gearing up for the Oregon Outback. 
3 days, 584km, self supported, and offroad. 

In an effort to fine-tune packing, gear and trail riding techniques, Meat, an employee for Brodie Bikes collaborated with Clay Webb, Stuckylifer and outdoor adventure extraordinaire. 

FUNeral Cycling - Kit Pre-Order

Our hill-bombing, whiskey-swilling, fenderless & fearless Vancouver road bike brethren are finally releasing their kit. 

All black, like the windows on an Escalade, or the inside of a nocturnal Norwegian church, this cycling kit is a perfect pairing for the iconoclast Stuckylife set.
