Cycling Video Round Up – some clothes, something scary, something muddy, some bikepacking and licking a rabbit

Falling over in mud, falling down a cliff, how to be Epic in photos and pulling a rabbit out of a hat

This weeks video round up features the usual crazy jumble of cycling related visual trinkets, but oddly no embarrassing video evidence of painful looking crashes (sliding down a hill on your bum doesn’t count), that’s probably a first.


The Rapha Why

Love ‘em or hate ‘em Rapha have changed the cycle clothing industry and a large part of cycling itself. Here Rapha founder Simon Mottram explains the ideas behind the birth of the brand and the whys and wherefores of the business.


LaClassica Road To Davos - Living the journey 

The Rapha effect can be seen in this video by Italian clothing brand La Classica as they pedal to the Swiss ski-town of Davos. And stare into the distance a bit, all Epic like, in the rain.

HandBike vs FixedGear : the Dangerous Challenge

You’ve spent countless nights awake staring at the ceiling haven’t you, wondering which is faster - a hand-bike or a fixed-wheel bike? Finally the folks at Dafne Fixed have decided to put an end to that age-old question with some hill-bombing.



An old film but we’d not seen it before and it’s nice to watch a bit of animation. Coming from the hand of Sander Joon at the Estonian Academy of Arts this is the story of a track race and some cigarettes, and a hat, and a rabbit…


We hope this sees you fired up for the weekend, whether that's slithering in the mud, riding up a hill in some merino clothing or looking at rabbits in a different way.

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.
