Pinkbike comes to Aptos and discovers a whole new world out there… Welcome Jordan!

Speaking of Aptos, we were riding there the day before Christmas Eve, coming down the road in Forest of Nisene Marks, when who should pass us driving up but Cam McCaul & the boyz, pickup full of bikes ‘n lads. It’s kinda cool when you can see the stars from Crankworx and DVDs cruise by like any other day in the woods. Hope they did some maintenance on the trails, someone took out the jumps and the lips are all ragged on one of our favorites anyway.

Seattle’s Cascade Bicycle Club, along with Silverdale Cyclery, will host a bicycle advocacy workshop for Kitsap cyclists beginning 9:30 a.m. Saturday Jan. 9 at the shop, 9242 Silverdale Way NW in Silverdale on the peninsula. RSVP at cyclery@silverdalecyclery.com or 360 692-5508.

And Cascade’s Transportation Advocacy Day will be Jan. 28 in Olympia. RSVP to Chris Rule.

Mobiky

Mobiky the folder king

Folders are big among the younger gen. I can’t pretend to understand why exactly, especially since I the ancient have a folding Mobiky, but it’s definitely true. The only other Mobiky user I know lives near me in Palo Alto (a complete and statistically anomalistic coincidence; there just aren’t many Mobiky riders out there) and he’s like 25. He loves the things. He says if I want to sell mine, which is actually my wife’s, he already has a buyer. Or two or three.
