Mountains, Bikes, and Menswear: the UM Weekend Rundown

Ollie Burruss September 30, 2013

The UM crew scattered with the winds this weekend, enjoying what's left of New England's fleeting Indian summer.

Emily was at the American Field pop-up show in Boston, a fine collection of independent brands showcasing their made-in-America products.  She got to hang out with some fun folks, meet new and loyal customers (always a highlight), and browse the various goods on display.  What do you think of her Greenwich Vintage Co. duck camo pants?

Back on the home front Oliver took to the hills, climbing Mount Mansfield on Saturday and scouting the Worcester Mountains on Sunday in preparation for an upcoming hunt.  He posted some shots from both days on Instagram if you're curious.

The rest of us made the most of our weekends, too.  Nicole caught a Tyler the Creator show on the Boston waterfront.  Carmen, last we heard, was headed to New York City for some cocktails, music, and serious shopping.  And I found some new single-track on my mountain bike and watched the Grand Prix of Gloucester cyclocross races  - look for an update later this week on why you might want to start watching cyclocross.

Before signing off, here's a snapshot from one of Oliver's college roommates, who raced the Vermont 50 mountain bike and running race in Pittsfield, VT on Sunday.  Ursa Major provided 1,200 face wipes for the event's participants (thanks Andrew @pressforward for organizing this on our behalf).  I bet they came in handy in the dusty aftermath of a hilly 50-mile race.

'Til the next time... be sure to get out there and live major this fall!
