Canyon's new rule-bending gravel bike, for a local mixed surface event. For the full ride report check back for the Hunt Of The North BadVenture Article.
Since the ride wasn’t a race, and because the Grail is a really weird-looking bike with a double handlebar, the Hunt of the North seemed like a great time to dork around on the Grail - even if it was the weirdest thing in the world to ride, it wouldn’t matter.
To launch the promo, we met up with man who puts the Jo- in JoJé, co-founder John Abate. Since this collaboration is all about contemplation, we chose the Swami’s Self-Realization Fellowship Gardens as the spot to reflect on the gustatory experience.
The sun was shining, the sky was bright blue, and the coffee was fresh off the pourover. We talked roasting science, bar production, and going back to coffee first principles. After shooting some photos cliffside, and then being asked to step away from the cliff by security, we found a table in the shade to get down to the business of tasting.
