Weekend Riding Recap

It is always a motivating feeling to sit down on a Sunday evening and feel “fulfilled” from the weekend. Your legs are tired, maybe your tan lines are a bit stronger, and you are ready to start the 5 day recovery process that is the work week. That’s what the 5 days between the weekends are right, recovery? This weekend was one of non-stop going for Kim (my better half) and the kids.   A huge year end lacrosse party at the lak…

New Goals, New Bikes, New Rides

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA I’m really excited to follow Arleigh’s New Years post from yesterday. I too have spent the past couple of weeks reflecting on the past year and what I would like to see in the coming year.  In 2012, my household became a one car family so I spent a lot of time on my Civia Lindon commuting to and from work.  That’s been a super positive change.  I feel stronger, m…

Race Report: Lion’s Roar NC Cyclocross #2

While I have raced several cross races this year, they all have been prep work (fun) for the grand event of the North Carolina Cyclocross series. This series kicked off this past weekend, I didn’t make the Saturday race so Sunday was the official kick off to the next 3 months of cyclocross racing! In order to give you a full scope of the race let’s begin at 5:15am when I woke up. Why? Because I had to leave by 6:15am for the 2.5-3 ho…

As a resident of the Charlotte North Carolina region I can tell you that cyclocross has been slow to pick up in the area. It seems this season is going to change all of this.

What is your name and location? Sue Rawley What type of cycling do you enjoy? All types! What is your first cycling memory?
