July 2009

As the month of July is coming to an end, we have had to say good by to the Tour de France, and look towards summer ending, schools starting and some amazing bike rides.  Personally, I will be doing my first real triathlon in August.  What will you be doing?  Here are a few good ideas to start with.
In 2009 Bontrager released their first ever cycling shoe line.  After teaming up with Esoles in order to get thousands of foot scans.  The result was a well fit shoe, with replaceable arch support and a bargain compared to other shoes. The line was very in depth with women, men and triathlon shoes.  (Personally, I have two pairs and I love them!) For 2010 they are going even deeper with the line and adding more color.  The women are staying pretty subtle but the mens line have a lot of orange through out. [gallery]

Family Fun Group Ride You've been riding for a while and are getting bored or anxious to get out riding with some people.  Riding with a group or with a couple friends is a very unique feeling and once you get the hang of it can make you a stronger rider.  Below I have put together some key things to remember when group riding and then some helpful hints.  I can't harp enough to remember safety and to ask a lot of questions.
Safety is a big thing for me.  Helmets, lights and brakes on those fixed gear bikes are all important things.  Any customer that comes through the shop getting into cycling or buying a new bike the two must accessories are a well fit helmet and a rear blinky light.  So that I don't sounds like I'm pushing things at them I explain the basics, you have one head (duh) and a good light will give drivers a good warning that you are up the road. Today I'll be talking about Knog's colorful line of blinky lights.

Cycling clothing can be very daunting, especially when you see how tight the shorts and jerseys fit.  The shorts feel like they have a built in diaper and may cause "sausage rolls" due to them squeezing a bit too tight.   Here's some input on shorts,...
