UK Bike Shop Chain Evans Cycles to Cut 300+ Jobs
@conoat: BTW the hunger issue is present in the UK as well and it deteriorated in the recent decade. It may be surprising it happens in first world countries, but hard to argue with the facts. https://foodfoundation.org.uk/new-food-foundation-data-sept-2020/ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunger_in_the_United_Kingdom

@conoat: "no one goes hungry or dies unnecessarily in either of our countries." This is not true. Over 10% of American households are food insecure. The percentage is higher for households with children, so yes, milions of American children suffer from hunger. In most cases this is because people can't afford food. Why? There are many reasons, but this is capitalism - people try to buy everything the cheapest possible, including labour of other people. With unregulated minimal wages, Amazon and the likes pay the least they can, and being monopolists, they dictate how the market looks like. So even if people work hard, they can't sustain themselves and their families. Then other citizens and government (from tax money) have to help - food banks, or sorts of relief systems - so citizens pay because large companies are not regulated and can't be made to pay themselves for the work they benefit from. Effectively, government ends up subsidising the large companies by keeping their employees alive. https://www.ers.usda.gov/topics/food-nutrition-assistance/food-security-in-the-us/key-statistics-graphics.aspx https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hunger_in_the_United_States

Video: What Bikes Are The North Shore Locals Riding? - Daily Driver Bike Checks
I have to admit I very rarely watch videos and rarely open articles with titles starting with "video". I do appreciate and enjoy a well made video, but I find written articles easier to process at my own pace. I can view the whole contents at a glance, start anywhere, skip/skim some passages, concentrate more on others, compare different sections etc. Obviously I refer to methods of conveying information - it would be hard to translate a purely riding video into an article ;)

Round 4 Voting Closed: Pinkbike Photo of the Year Contest
I have similar impressions. But Bell's photo captures so well both the beautiful terrain and the incredible feeling of action - a win for me!

My favourite too. The woods in this photo are so atmospheric - it makes me want to be there, now! Would happily buy a print!

Eliot Jackson Signs With Santa Cruz
@JustAnotherRiderHere: Eliot's case is the opposite of what you insinuate- it shows that you basically need to be almost superhuman if you want to make a career in MTB being black. I don't know many people of his calibre in this sport (actually no one else comes to my mind). - Dude has legit skills as data analyst, which makes him easily employable with a good salary in IT. - is very intelligent and capable of formulating complex insights as opposed to many top riders who can mostly say "Yeah bro I'm stoked" and seem to have no other interests/skills in life apart from bikes - has serious guitar talent - amazing personality - insane skills and style on the bike were mentioned already.

@tbmaddux: you're right - but still they both will be riding/working for SC. E.g. even if Eliot doesn't race WC, he will be there commentating for Red Bull, so I imagine the team will be hanging around in the pits together.

This is so good! Congrats to Eliot and SC. But OMG, with my both favourite riders in one team (Greg!), it's just awesomeness overload. It's gonna be fun!
