Easton Overland gravel team rolling this slick Allied Alfa Allroad bike – Ahead of last weekend’s Land Run 100, Easton launched Overland – a crew of riders taking on North American gravel racing, all-road training & mixed-surface adventures. And they did it aboard these new Allied Alfa Allroad bikes.

And of course, content creators as they are…

…the team but together a five minute zen video so you can relax while they build up the new kit.

Where to Ride

  • Ride the Boob Ride, Apr 13 in CA: Not Your Mama’s Kind Of Charity – The Boob Ride is back for its 10th year of raising funds for low-income breast cancer patients in their last mile of treatment. This grassroots non-profit is a bit different & slightly more irreverent than most charities, their fun event challenging social norms with its tongue-in-cheek nature. Not only is it an all-volunteer organization, but 100% of rider registration fees go directly to cancer patients who need support to get to treatment, pay bills, have food delivered, and clean their houses. Don’t be a boob, sign up today for rides in either Orange County or San Diego, CA April 13! TheBoobRide.org

  • Ride through the night, London to Manchester for Ambitious about Autism – The UK national charity for children and young people with autism is working hard to give them the future that they deserve. One way they do that is through their cycling challenge event: London to Manchester, their biggest annual fundraiser. Starting in London on Aug 31 their riders head out, riding through the night to reach Adlington Hall on the outskirts of Manchester on Sept 1. This year’s ride takes in a new route, which will see the cyclists crossing the Peaks District as the sun rises. Sign up, raise some funds, and enjoy the ride. AmbitiousAboutAutism.org.uk

  • Trust Message linkage fork coming to a shop near you via QBP – Trust Performance’s multi-link front suspension fork, the Message is getting broader reach thanks to a distribution partnership with Quality Bicycle Products.

  • Support Port Jervis Trails, Win a Fatback! – We actually didn’t realize if when we told you to find next weekend’s Snowball’s Chance ride. But if you are already registering for that event to raise money for the Port Jervis, NY trails, you can also drop another twenty bones and throw into the raffle for a chance to win a Fatback Bikes Rhino FLT frameset or Big Su Alaska edition wheelset. There look to be other smaller prizes on the docket too, and you don’t need to be there to win. Just buy your tickets before Mar 30 via Bikereg.com.
  • Get a deal on some Oakleys – OK, that’s a tiny bit of a misleading headline as it looks like the shades aren’t getting cleared out. But if you need some fresh off-the-bike kit? Oakley’s casual clothing and bags are up to 70% off in their end of season sale.
