Cycling Tips

If you are a contant reader you will know my love of Strava. It keeps me motivated, up to date with my friends rides across the world and technology makes my world go around. When I visit new places (which is weekly) I'm always trying to...

Prep was solid into this race. Hitting about 90% of my training for the two weeks leading into the event. Could I have been at 100%? I'm sure, but I'm not a pro and I do have a life to live.
From mid-September to March I am living in knee warmers. My tan lines will prove this as it is pretty far into the summer before the lines around my mid calves start disappearing. Here is my ode to knee warmers...

Back in 2004 I picked up mountain biking seriously. A friend and I would go 3-4 times a week, crushing the souls of boys on our pink (matching) single speeds. We rocked, we rolled and that year I grew more as a cyclist than any...

An on going series from Laura Colbert from Loose Nuts in Atlanta, GA. Click to read more from Laura. Mountain bikes vs. real world In my previous post, I wrote rather sentimentally about my love of mountain biking as a way to check out from real life, if only for...

As with any sport it can be very daunting and overwhelming when you walk into a completely foreign arena. Questions, fears, hesitance, embarrassment, and so many emotions are rushing through you that by the time you even get on a bike you are stressed out. Here is...
