"I was very curious. What's around that corner? It was a very big world, and I was, 'I gotta hurry to see the whole thing'."

-Mads Mikkelsen to Rolling Stone

Dear Friends,

I am headed to Sandbridge, VA for a little beach time with the family. I am NOT bringing a bike. Th...

Campus Wheelworks Wednesday Night Race Series at Sprague Brook Park is in full swing, with only one week left. I signed up to race the seventh week in the series to get in one more awesome ride before vacation and a week off the bike.

“I don’t always wear gloves, but when I do I prefer Handup Gloves.”

I wear gloves on the bike for three reasons: when it’s cold, when I need grip, and when I think I might crash. So if you see me on the road bike on a warm day with gloves, be careful.

It’s about quality not quantity 

I am really loving the time I have spent on the bike lately, and I know exactly why. It’s the little things that matter. A clean bike. A lubed chain. A good riding group. A nice piece of gear or kit. A new place to explore. It is about q...

Friend or fang?

The beauty of a bike

Is that adventures lie

Around the far corner

And up the block ahead.
