Gnarmads in Philadelphia

08 October 2013, 22.01 | Posted in Bicycles, skateboard | No comments »

Introducing the Gnarmads. Hi, we are Bogdan and Matt Kruz, and with your help, we will cycle westward this September. We’ve been friends for over a decade, and have been shaped by the skateboard and cycling community here in NYC. We feel it is our turn to give back, and through events at local skate and bike shops we can connect with today’s youth, encourage children to get out and be active, promote helping and giving back while connecting all of the skate and cycling communities along the way, nationwide.
-Raise $2000 for Stoked Organization, which provides mentoring programs that promote personal development, academic achievement, and healthy living to under-served youth through action sports culture.
-Inspire kids to get active, be creative and participate in their local community; not to just receive but to also give back.
-Showcase local skateboard talent coast-to-coast, creating video episodes and connecting skate communities.
-Demonstrate that it is possible to be active and eco-friendly, in an age where technology seems to prevail above all else.
The Gnarmads will pedal across the country with multi-faceted aims in mind. Not only do they wish to raise funds for charities that are aligned with their personal beliefs, they also wish to spread their love of skate culture with everyone they meet. They’ll journey from city to city, stopping at prominent skate shops and skateparks to connect with the local community, and create a constant stream of photo, video and written content as they progress, sharing their experiences each step of the way.
Bogdan and Matt Kruz have actively participated in community and after-school programs, most recently with CREATE Skateboard Foundation; allowing under-priveledged children the ability to learn to skateboard. Gnarmads have instructed large groups and individual skateboard lessons over the years.
Since returning from their recent 1200-mile cycling adventure from New York to Florida, the Gnarmads have organized two photo/art exhibitions and a skateboard contest for inner-city youth at Coleman Park Skatepark in NYC. In addition, the Gnarmads have conducted a multi-borough clothing drive that generated over 300 items for the Salvation Army and over 160 brand new items for children in the Harold Hunter Foundation.

100 Mile Bicycle Ride in Honor of 9.11

14 September 2011, 06.45 | Posted in Bicycles | 2 comments »

This past Sunday marked the 10th Anniversary of The 9.11 Attack on New York City’s World Trade Towers. Everybody has their way of remembering and honoring this great loss many New Yorkers suffered. Myself and 35 friends gathered for the 2nd Annual 100 Mile Bicycle Ride. We met up in the LES and then had a sorta plan mapped out all over Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx and Manhattan ( Sorry Staten Island ). Riding in and out of traffic with such a powerful and enthusiastic crew was exhilarating. We hit up some of the best sites and tastes New York has to offer. I would like to congratulate all who participated in the ride and hope to see you on the bike path and city streets soon. And a big thanks to Raleigh Cycles for the support!
I managed to take 322 photos, mostly while cycling but here are 40 or so of my favorite pics…click read more and Enjoy!

The Outlier Slim Dungarees

29 June 2011, 20.14 | Posted in Bicycles, fashion | No comments »

Seriously, “Best Pants Ever.” I have clocked miles on the bike, skateboarding and widin’ out in these classic pants. The look and feel is like no other pants I have worn. Lightweight, gusseted crotch, curved waistband and reverse back yoke ensure you can move freely through any situation. These pants are truly universal. You can rock them all day in the NYC’s hot traffic and then slip right into some socialista spot looking sharp. This amazing technology is brought to you by Outlier out of Brooklyn, New York. Killing it right here in the ultimate testing ground for fashion and function and they are executing it in both departments. Thank you for being so dope! Be sure to check out Outlier’s full line and awesome website. For more looks read more.

New Amsterdam Bike Show Reminder

29 April 2011, 22.33 | Posted in Bicycles | No comments »

Screen shot 2011-04-29 at 3.48.53 PM
Hey guys, just wanted to shoot out a quick reminder about the New Amsterdam Bike Show, coming up tomorrow! Chris Speyer, VP of Raleigh America and President of the BSPA will be speaking at 3pm as a part of the Bikelandia series, where he will discuss our upcoming launch of a new Raleigh brain-child website called MyCyclingEvent. This is a new cause-ride initiative for us, where users can upload content on charity rides around the country, or find rides that Raleigh is already participating in, along with other nutritional tips, expert advice, community forums, etc. If you make it to anything, I’d love to have you at this!
Other things to be around for – beer will start flowing at 1pm, coffee and food will be served all day, and Raleigh be giving away a bike every two hours, starting at noon. If you miss out on those, you’ll have plenty of other chances to get free product, check out new bikes from upcoming lines, and meet with other passionate bikers who want to see cycling integrated into our culture as much as cars. Also, there is about to be a raging after party at the Chrome store…don’t miss out.

Raleigh has made a quick light weight commuter cycle that is fashionable and functional while looking sharp and sleek. Handles amazing in the rain and sleet. Over the Borough bridges and thru the city traffic. It’s classic looks are getting compliments from all bike lovers young and old. When I was a kid my folks had matching Raleigh’s that looked just like this one…”Classic!”
