The last Campus Wheelworks Tuesday Night Ride of the year was a blast! Now, it is on to cyclocross season and Thursday Night Cross practices. The season finale was the B2A ride with John Dunn, and he led a great ride to the Central Terminal and South Park. He really ha...

Cycling shoes don’t last forever, especially when you ride and sweat lots. Over time, they just collect sweat, road spray, and dirt and need to be replaced. I got a solid two seasons out of my Giro road shoes, and I headed to the shop to see if they had anything that w...

Last week, I was so stoked after doing that crit that I decided that I wanted to race again this weekend. So, I decided that a mountain bike race would fit the bill just fine, even though I have never done one, and I am pretty much a complete hack on the mountain bike....

Faire l'elastique- (French) "doing the elastic."

There was a large field, and I was predicted to finish second last. I wondered who that poor guy was that was ranked lower.
