Adventures through Bicycling

BY JAMES NORD
@ VOL 1 ON AUG 14, 2014

Brothers, James and Dylan Nord grew up together going on adventures, riding their bikes, building forts, and playing pretend. A few decades later they were still riding bikes, racing them now, but had lost the adventure and childish fun of their youth that they couldn't forget.

They decided to create something that would allow them to step outside of their modern adult lives and experience the unabashed freedom and thrill they knew growing up, but had lost as adults. And so Deux North was born as a way to say, "I'm still young."
