For those of us who are die-hard conventional bicycle aficionados, this thing looks ridiculous. But, you can't…Continue

Our first two months have been a success - the excitement about the Retreat is spreading and the interest in the riding in Montana is expanding everyday! We have been hosting cyclists passing through the Whitefish Area - all the way from Sweden and the Netherlands to as close as Kalispell. The diversity of riding in the Whitefish area ranges from cross country to downhill to free ride to epic wilderness single track to family trail terrains. The Flathead Valley has it all!…Continue

Just a little digest of emerging technology in the bicycle arena.
A collapsible bike helmet. It's been found by marketing research that “38% of helmet users have issues with storage and carrying of a helmet and 23% of people blame the inconvenience of a regular helmet for not wearing one.”

Get out in the road.
It's there for you too cyclist! You pay taxes to be able to freely transport yourself from A to B. There's no law against riding a bike in the road, and for good reason. However riding on the sidewalk is a seldom enforced legal violation in many places.
I saw a man who was hit by a right-on-red motorist yesterday afternoon in Springfield, VA. If you've ever tried to ride in Springfield, the place is a bike nightmare. With the "Mixing Bowl"…Continue

I just felt like a bike ride yesterday. It was beautiful weather and I was trying to figure out new routes into the city.
Took my track bike to a bridge and shot a picture of Thomas Jefferson's Memorial.
It might sound crazy, but sometimes I like to imagine myself as John Henry, racing against a steam-powered machine. And I'd like to think that if I had to commute into DC during rush hour, my bike is certainly comparable to a car in travel…Continue

This past weekend I got the pleasure of spending some time cycling in Georgia.
Georgia has beautiful scenery, along with humidity and bugs.
A small price to pay for this sort of riding.
The Silver Comet Trail is excellent. And…Continue

I relished the weather yesterday. There were dark clouds, but I never saw any rain. Yet I was out until 9 p.m. This aimless wandering ended up being about 21 miles.
I stopped next to a log to sit, read, drink tea, eat two eggs(a complete protein) and rest a little.…Continue

People who I've ridden with from time to time know that I sometimes create the ride as I go along. Getting lost is a lot of fun. You discover new places and see new people at a very comprehensible pace.
I meant to go to the store to get milk, cereal, and raisins.
Oops. I got a little…Continue

Have you seen these things!? I feel like I'm about to be living in an age only paralleled by The Jetson's series.
I would say it's on that level of technology anyways. Don't worry, we'll get the spaceships to fly around in anytime now.
But you can't argue with something so brutally efficient. This thing hardly ever needs maintenance, has amazing…Continue

I'd like to apologize about the lack of new content on the website. It's pretty time consuming to update things here. And of course I'd rather be out riding, like you.
Although the website is my passion, I've got other obligations as well.
That's where you come in.
Remember all those bike websites you've been to, where all you can do is comment on things? Lame right?
Well not here. Anyone who joins can add their own stuff. Almost anything…Continue

I just really need to rant about how much the world doesn't want me to succeed at this, how little I know about bikes, and how it affects my measly amount of motivation for physical activity, mostly because I think it's funny. It isn't Louis C.K. funny, but laughing at misfortune and inadequacy is still the overall point. Attempt 1 at physical activity after about 9 months of none at all went like this:
1:15pm AMPED for a warm day, I pull out my bike.
1:30-2:00 I whine for a…Continue
Pardon if my French is poor. I mean to say "Tour of Suburban Lakes."
Anyways, I had to get out and explore today. And also, it was time to buy more light bulbs: excellent excuse to go on a ride.
Don't worry, those aren't miles. It's a little over 31.5 miles in total length.…

Sixty acres of land has been given the "go ahead" by city staff.
This was possible with the San Jose Parks Foundation, Guadalupe River Park Conservancy, the San Jose Police Department, and San Jose city councilman Sam Liccardo, who represents the downtown district.
Since it's a "cyclocross arena" that means it's devoted, as in YEAR ROUND.
Just saying. Proposed layout:…
