Ceviche de Shred Santenello's Snack

Fresh fish is a great component of the shred diet. Packed with protein, plenty of omegas and B vitamins, fish provides alert energy in spades for performance on the bike.

But fish can be a pain and is often difficult cook—and ruining it pretty much makes you an asshole. A fish gave up its life for you, the fishmonger skillfully filleted it, only for you, the cook, to ruin it at the last moment.

 John Scurlock holds a cherry wood propeller made by his friend Ted Hendrickson. "I saw it one day in his shop and thought it was a work of art, he sold it to me for $300 and it's been hanging on my living room wall ever since," John says.

There are some 15,000 rivets in John Scurlock’s bright yellow RV-6 experimental airplane.

He might not know this number off the top of his head, but he certainly knows the significance of it, seeing as he installed every single one himself. Homebuilt planes are a bit of a novelty in the already niche world of aviation, most likely because the process is not easy—nor quick.

From Church Pews to Crimpers Hood River's Asbury Church is Born Again as a Bouldering Gym

Anyone who rolls into Hood River, Oregon with a kiteboard, bike, kayak, or pair of skis can attest that when Mother Nature set out to craft the Columbia River Gorge, she was feeling extra creative.
