An Introduction to the 2013 Swobo Fillmore

A guest post by Laura of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA I love a good mountain bike ride, but if I can’t make it out of the city, there are few things better than cruising around town on a beautiful, warm day with a great bike underneath you.  Atlanta had it’s first glimpse of spring this past weekend.  It was sunny, almost 70 degrees,…

Frostbike–A bicycle non-professional at a bicycle industry trade show

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA So, I know my byline up there says that I represent Loose Nuts Cycles when I write.  The truth is that I am by no means a bicycle industry professional.  I ride my bike to work and around town, love a mountain bike ride, help out at the local velodrome and am…

Mountain bike night rides

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA. I am planning to do some mountain bike racing this spring and thus have been trying to get some extra miles on my mountain bike.  Living in the middle of Atlanta makes this difficult, especially during the week.  Luckily I’ve discovered a local Tuesday night no-drop trail ride.  I’ve ridden this ride…

St. Valentine rode a bicycle

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA. Hey love birds!  It’s Valentines Day and while I’m not a big fan of this day, I am a fan of going on dates on other days of the year.  I also like giving/receiving romantic gestures on days that are not explicitly prescribed for that purpose.  So, in the spirit of St….

Louisville 2013: Imperfect but awesome

A guest post from Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA There are a lot of Cyclocross World Championship race reports floating around the internet by now.  I think that other people have done an excellent job covering the technical details of Saturday’s races–who won, by how much, and what were they riding.  (If you didn’t watch it live on cxmagazine.com or haven’t…

Trail Review: Coldwater Mountain, Anniston, AL

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA Since Monday was a federal holiday, it was one of the rare days when both my partner, Chris, and I have the same day off of work.  After a week’s worth of rain in Atlanta, we needed some outside play time, so no idea seemed better than a day on our mountain bikes.  Chris…

Race Report: Atlanta AlleyCross

A guest blog from Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA. Saturday was a beautiful day in Atlanta, one of those occasional Southern winter days when it feels like spring–the opposite of what cyclocross weather should be.  Other parts of the country have muddy, sloppy, cold cyclocross races.  In Georgia, the weather always seems to provide us with boring, but beautiful race days….

Night Ride Fail

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA. Arleigh mentioned in her New Year’s Day post that she wanted to focus on keeping people riding when the weather is crappy.  I don’t know what your definition of crappy is but mine involves cold temperatures and darkness.  It’s hard to be excited about being on a bicycle when it’s dark and…
