Bike enthusiasts may know a lot about bikes, be willing to spend a lot of time researching and a lot of money on the perfect assembly of gears, wheels and parts. Some may call San Francisco’s MASH biking enthusiasts, but traveling through California, through 750 miles of rain, sun, sweat, tears, and occasionally, splashes of blood, it seems like “enthusiast” is quite an understatement. Last year, MASH went on the extremely exclusive Tour of California (not to mention one of the toughest bike tours) and documented their journey with photographs, videos, memorabilia and stories worth regaling over and over. Following up on Parra’s exhibition, MASH took over Arkitip and Incase’s Project Space in Southern California and presented a multi-media exhibition which documented their participation in the Tour of California.
The exhibition opened with drinks, good company, and a short race from Echo Park to Project Space (which MASH rider Walter Brush won with a easy peddle– easy as compared to what he had to endure during the Tour of California). Aside from photographs and actual bikes, the opening also premiered a 12-minute long video featuring footage and reflections of the MASH team during their journey. Check out some highlight pictures from the event, and head on to the flickr set for the complete recap! The exhibition will be running through June 6, so if you are in SoCal, remember that looking at something in person is different from seeing it online in pictures.
