DO IT ALL The North Face™ developed a partnership with PrimaLoft® to offer a new synthetic alternative to down. ThermoBall™ is a revolution in insulation technology. Unlike traditional, continuous-filament synthetic insulations, the small round PrimaLoft® synthetic fiber clusters closely to mimic down clusters; trapping heat within small air pockets to retain warmth. Independent CLO testing has shown that ThermoBall™ technology can offer the low weight, loft, warmth, and compressibility of down with the wetweather insulating performance of synthetics.

Travelling to Ride and Explore Scott Murison I think inside everyone is the little kid who loves to explore the forest just beyond their backyard. As we grow older this kid gets buried under responsibility, priorities and insecurity. I have been very fortunate in my life to have an inner kid that seems to be able to swim against the tide of ageing/maturing. These days I am privileged to help others seek out adventure and explore. For the last ten years it has been on a bicycle, the decade before that it was in a kayak and 20 years ago it was on foot and hand while climbing. I think what keeps my drive going is the site of that inner explorer bursting out of adults as they point their bikes down a road they have never seen. The unearthing of the inner Columbus (seem a newsworthy name these days and can be substituted with Viking if you wish) usually looks like this. Adult who has spent the last 30 years being a very good adult decides they want to try this cycling thing and heard about mixing cycling, exotic roads, good food and drink. They convince a friend or spouse that it might be a good idea. We end up chatting on the phone, in person or on line. The conversation usually involves dispelling fears about it being too hard, too extreme or too something. Somewhere during the conversation their face usually starts to brighten and erupts into a large grin as their adult brain decides that this may not be as daft an idea as they originally thought.
My apologies if you have had a partner, workplace friend, cycling friend or family member have this occur because at least for a short while the inner squirrel is released. The inner squirrel is the part of your brain that now rushes around in no particular order festering over packing lists, logistics, dog care, kid care, parent care, tires, sun glasses, chamois cream, back to sunglasses and maps, globes and lighter haircuts. The excitement is palpable and for those not caught in the vortex this state can be mildly overwhelming. Apologies from Wild Rock Travel for this temporary condition. The first morning of most trips involves a lot of nervous laughter from some, quiet concerned faces on others and the odd person who just looks plain scared. Exploring for many at this age is new again. Quickly people pedal off in their group (roughly slow/short, medium and fast/long). The look on their faces ease and relax. Their faculties are no longer straining under the load of spreadsheets,
schedules and responsibilities. Life is reduced to safely piloting your bike to the next meal and from that meal home again. In between is a feast for the senses of sound (water, birds and some silence), touch (wind on your face and the feedback from your bike), smells (plants blooming, agriculture and food) and the sensation of physical work. Today for once there are no lunches to pack, no laundry to do, no beds to make, no groceries to buy and no commute. The biggest decision you are forced to make is what to have with dinnerâ€Ś red wine, white wine, beer, sparkling water or still water? Stripping away these adult concerns the inner explorer comes out. I canâ€™t count the number of times people have mentioned they would have never thought themselves able to ride X far, or to climb Y, or ride with such and such. With the weight of normal adult life temporarily shed the inner explorer comes out in us all. This metamorphosis is one the most rewarding parts of my job.

Reinventing Capilene® Polyester Baselayer NEW Capilene What’s the same? Well, Patagonia still offers the great quality moisture wicking, breathable, and quick drying capilene baselayer that will take you from the emotional depths of winter camping to the soaring heights of climbing mountains! Still Blue Sign approved, still made from recycled content, still has Polygiene permanent odor control, still fantastic. So… What’s new? The first thing you will notice is the packaging – instead of the classic Patagonia “sushi roll,” each piece comes in a 100% post-consumer recycled cardboard box. This is actually more environmentally friendly than the plastic it used to be shipped in! Amazing! Also, Patagonia is categorizing things a little bit differently this year, and dropping the old designations of Cap1 to Cap4. Instead, they have 3 ranges, called Lightweight, Midweight, and Thermal weight.
g a Classic Lightweight: 100% recycled content, this weight is the lightest and fastest drying baselayer with the best wicking capabilities. The slick outer fabric and subtle grid pattern make it easy to layer and super comfortable next to skin. Ideal for high output activities in warm environments. 35 UPF. Midweight: this weight is a fusion of the old Cap2 and Cap3 which has created the most versatile baselayer yet! This is the weight that does it all; wear it in warm or cold weather, alone or with layers, this weight makes life easy. Polartec Power Grid fabric gives it the uber comfort factor and allows for outstanding breathability. Thermal weight: this weight is made for winter and is the warmest baselayer in the range. Surprisingly toasty with minimal bulk, this weight is still easy to layer. It is, by far, the coziest of them all with Polartec Power Grid fleeciness, which also makes it unrivalled in breathability. There you have it! The great Patagonia Capilene reworked and made even better. No matter what style of choose, you can be sure that you will be comfortable on your next adventure.
