Adventures through Bicycling

PRESENTED ON AUG 14, 2014
IN BROOKLYN @ VOL 1

Brothers, James and Dylan Nord grew up together going on adventures, riding their bikes, building forts, and playing pretend. A few decades later they were still riding bikes, racing them now, but had lost the adventure and childish fun of their youth that they couldn't forget.

They decided to create something that would allow them to step outside of their modern adult lives and experience the unabashed freedom and thrill they knew growing up, but had lost as adults. And so Deux North was born as a way to say, "I'm still young."

Adventures through Cycling

“You can’t plan an adventure, but you can live in a way that allows for adventure.
Embrace the unknown, be ready to take a big risk, and when everything goes wrong remember there was a reason you started it — that’s your adventure.”
Brothers James Nord and Dylan Nord grew up going on adventures, riding bikes, building forts, and playing pretend. A few decades later they were still riding bikes, racing them now, but had lost that sense of adventure and child-like delight of their youth.
In “Adventures in Cycling” from PKN Brooklyn Vol. 1 we see their solution — deux north — was to get together with a bunch of friends, go on adventures again, embrace the unknown, and film it the whole way.
