To Be Determined Journal

To Be Determined is a journal of cycling, adventure and photography, curated by a NYC-based cycling team known as TBD Racing or Team TBD. From criteriums to cyclocross to bikepacking and gravel it is all part of the TBD Journal.

Work In Progress: Grant's Tomb Criterium 2018 Video

One of the best elements of the New York City cycling scene is the friendships that are borne of the camaraderie of brutally cold March races that start at the crack of dawn, summer weeknights at Floyd Bennett Field and all of the adventures in between. The unfortunate flip side of that coin is the insane cost of living and other quality of life concerns (including those brutal winter mornings) that can drive New Yorkers to the suburbs or much further afield, putting great physical distance between those very same friendships. Indeed every single year TBD seems to lose a racer or two to greener pastures (Colorado is quite popular as of late). 

In the next few weeks Greg Addo will be the latest TBD racer to relocate. While injuries and fatherhood may have reduced his time in the races in the past season or two, he still managed to leave a big mark on the team with some incredible video projects including NBX 2015 and Grant's Tomb 2016. With his looming departure he has one last gift for the squad: video from this year's edition of the CRCA Grant's Tomb Criterium, shot in coordination with Cullen and Daghan. Stay tuned to the Journal for the finished product in the next week or two:
