November 2012

In efforts to not write a post about disappointment in retailers around Black Friday, Cyber Monday and all things THANKSgiving I am sitting in Starbucks on the side of I-77 to pounds keys and focus on something I can control. 2013 race planning.
For the 2013 season I'm really focusing on a handful of endurance mountain bike races and then a slew of cross country mountain bike series (SERC, Southern Classic and the Georgia State MTB.) Then in the fall of course will be cyclocross domination (it will be domination and not just participation!) Looking at my schedule and thinking of bikes for work/demo and brand representation I had a lot to chose from. My rock steady go to bike for the past year has been the Salsa Spearfish. Made to crush endurance with 29er wheels, 100mm front, 80mm rear and a very stable handling platform. As a rep I have many brands to represent and having ridden a Spearfish non-stop for the past year most of my stores have seen that bike, or at least listened to stories of how killer the bike is.

Since childhood I've had a journal in which I would lay out frustrations, draw desires and jot down quotes that inspired or motivated me to be a better person. Since high school I have found my outlet in typing on a keyboard. In 2009 I moved much of my efforts of typing to the outlet you see here, Bike Shop Girl, in order to "empower women within bicycling". Three and a half years later I still find the time to push and promote but my message has started to change. With that I need to mirror my efforts and outlet to who I've become.
My words are becoming to mimic a broken record. Lacking or should I say SLACKING off my beautiful training plan. Lots of time in the car, only a handful of bike rides between the Boone Cyclocross race 2 weeks prior and that was also a joke. Does it sound like I'm setting you up for a big let down of a result? Because I'm not. Just piling on the excuses to get you ready for a result I completely pulled out my rear.
When I heard a company was making a waterproof backpack designed not only for bike commuting by for WOMEN I jumped at the chance to review the product. Velo Transit is a based out of Seattle, WA where they design, build, test and ship their bags out of. The first time I learned of the company was this past spring, they are making waves as their designs are very function built and have some pretty unique ideas built into their bags.
Why didn't I schedule a trip to NYC like I had hoped for this week? Please join Chrome and Horitoshi1 to celebrate the launch of the Chrome Tokyo Series bags. The event is tonight from 7 - 11 pm at our Chrome HUB store in NYC.

There is this somewhat weekly series called Motivational Monday that I post Q&A from women that submitted their answers on this handly form. Basic, who are you and why do you ride questions. Below are the current questions, but I want your feedback. What do you...
