Denver Here I Come

Here’s the short story, between now and middle of June my little family is moving to Denver Colorado. Why Denver, CO?

Road Rides on the Horizon

On this site, for some reason, I don’t talk enough about bike rides. About the act of riding my bike. The bliss, the happiness and the emotions or pain it puts through my body. That’s why we all do this right? It isn’t about the new bike, or the fancy gadgets. It is about the feeling we have inside of us when we ride that…

This is Why I Do What I Do

I don’t plan on waxing a poetic response to what is going on with Lance Armstrong or the doping scandal of the pro cycling folks. My buddy Josh did a good job of that already, read it here. This video, shot locally in Charlotte, at a race put on by my friends and teammates of 36th Street Racing. This is why I love my job…

What Makes a Really Good Bicycle Shop?

I asked the question on Facebook and Twitter: What makes a really good bicycle shop? I’m opening up the comments and want a good sound off. I’m not giving you any ideas or going to steer the conversation, I want candid thoughts. If you work/own a shop please state so. If you are a consumer that doesn’t go to a shop anymore because of not…
