Be right back. Until then … Nashbar will knock 20% off your orders through today. Just spend $50. You’ll get shipping too. Jenson USA launched their July 4th sale a bit early. Shop it here. And read this: Gravel, All-Road, Bikepacker, Adventure Bike….marketing terms for a somewhat nebulous and ill-defined target demographic into which bicycle brands have desperately been hurling new product development. Golly, I do like bike design but I […]

Posted in: Cycling News, Rides & Trails, Riding Life     |    1 Tweet

Clever headline, right? The World Naked Bike Ride is back in the Windy City. Temps should be in the 70s, so shrinkage shouldn’t be too much of a problem and the only headlights you’ll see may be actual headlines. Get it? Sigh. From Chicagoist: As in past years, the Chicago Police Department will not be ticketing riders for nudity, according to a department spokeswoman. Several bike cops will follow the […]

Well … I’m addicted to Strava Stories. The latest is title “The South” and is worth a read: We came to the town of Guardiaregia a day early with the idea of taking a closer look at the Giro’s southernmost mountaintop finish at Campitello Matese. We had no idea what to expect except for one thing: each time we’ve come south for the Giro, we’ve been blown away by what […]

[This article originally appeared on December 8, 2014.] This is the kickoff of a new Trail & Tarmac feature, the T&T Q&A, our window into the lives of pro riders. The closest many of us will get to being a pro rider is riding the same gear the pros rode, probably a year or so after it made its debut, maybe scooped up on sale.
