Morton and Howes have “Pure Fun!”

Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes remind us of what riding mountain bikes is all about — “Pure Fun.”

If you know anything about Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes, you know that they are generally down for a good time. The EF Education-NIPPO teammate’s achievements in cycling are prestigious — Howes recently winning the 144 mile gravel beast, 2021 SBT GRVL, and Morton coming fresh off a self-supported Tour de France deemed ‘The Alt Tour.’ Yet, these boisterous accomplishments exist in stark contrast to their chill attitudes and placid demeanors.

But make no mistake; one must keep a high level of drive and ambition for years on end to accomplish what they have. And if you were to ask what has fueled them to continue to spin their cranks, you’ll be met with but one answer: “Pure Fun!”

This past fall, we handed Lachlan Morton and Alex Howes a few Cannondale Scalpel HT’s and documented a blip in their daily lives of riding, racing, swinging, sliding, and having a pint in the mountains of Colorado. Lachlan and Howes have a natural dynamic between each other, one that is equal parts inviting and disarming. Documenting their adventures and absorbing their passion for cycling and the mountains was contagious. It really makes things easier when you set out to capture the love for bikes, when your subjects are the embodiment of the emotion.

We hope you enjoy watching Lachy and Howes have a darn good time — we’d bet the house on you sporting an unconscious grin in doing so. Whether you are sporting plate numbers and chasing down tape, or riding single track with your friends, these two legends will remind you of why you got into riding bikes in the first place — for the PURE FUN of it!

Pure fun!
