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."

Summit 2 Sea: The Expedition

BY JESSE SHIMROCK
@ VOL 4 ON AUG 27, 2015

"On this southern side [of the mountain ridge] it drops down about 7000ft (2,133m) almost dead vertical into the abyss."

In "Summit 2 Sea: The Expedition" from PechaKucha Accident Vol. 4Jesse Shimrock shares his harrowing month long experience of being on the first expedition to summit North America's highest mountain, Alaska's Denali at 20,320ft (6,914m) and then descend all the way to sea level ending on a rafting expedition from river to ocean. His adventures in the wilderness inspire us to push our limitations and serve a testament of the audacity and fortitude of the human condition.
