Across the country small pockets of youth in middle and high schools are creating their own cycling team. LUNA Sport recently donated $2,000 to the NorCal High School Cycling League at the annual Cyclefest Fundraiser. This money will go towards sending eight girls to the NorCal high school mountain bike series during their 2011 season. The NorCal League continues to grow fast as more and more high school students discover this challenging and rewarding sport. Many more girls are starting to race as well, and LUNA Sport wants to help these young women get to all the races in the series, potentially fulfilling their dreams and changing their lives.

Physically, the recovery from my accident has been pretty straight forward. My mom and lady friend (wife in lesbian terms) took care of me in every way possible for the 48 hours immediately following the accident. My legs, left hip and lower back all...

Fritz over at Cyclelicio.us posted some great photos from the Pedal Savvy Fashion Show on November 6th, 2010. It's good to see cycling fashionable elsewhere in the country and the whole "bike fashion show" idea taking off over the past couple years. The biggest...

Before my El Mariachi was even an idea, my friend Shelley was looking for a 29er. We went through all the various options and her needs. As I'm still biased to many of Salsa's products, and the Mamasita was a big hit, we...

I'm not really ready to post too many details, it is easier to tell you to read my Twitter feed for details. Trying to mentally wrap my head around it. Full story.. Read my Twitter feed @bikeshopgirlcom...

The below quote is pulled from the Ottawa Citizen that by chance found its way to my inbox this morning. It is very fitting as only last night while riding home from work the reminder of personal safety was rudely reminded to my senses. A car, not thinking, took a right hand in front of me only after passing me 3 minutes before. Fortunately I ride my bicycle the same as a motorcycle... as if I was invisible. While the car drove past me and slowed down I was also slowing ready to react.  Would most riders react this way? Unfortunately I don't believe so. The driver was in the wrong, and if I had been hit or hit the car the law was on my side. I can't afford that, nor do I want to put myself at the jeopardy of a 1,000+lb automobile. My helmet can only save so much of my body!  Read on for the article from the Ottawa Citizen.
