Reflecting back on the Colorado Bike Summit and I'm back to the question, "Does my city fit me?" My answer is now a strong yes, but I have to go out and make it for myself. My goal moving forward is to help others find...

One of my best experiences in the bicycling industry was working for QBP. The company is pushing barriers and moving things forward. They have taken another large step forward to creating a better bike industry by offering summer internships at their headquarters, for women.  Read through the press release for full details, or skip to the link at the bottom to apply!
As mentioned earlier, my plan for this year is to divide up goals in to "sprint" size bites. This could be 2-4 weeks at a time, and if you know anything about behavior change, it typically takes about 30 days for something to really take hold. My top goals in January are focused on 1. resetting my diet, 2. testing and optimizing a family budget, 3. creating space and time to dedicate towards my athletic goals. Here's how I plan on creating a good foundation for these goals in January:

Moots took their proven cyclocross platform a bit further to meet up with the growing gravel and bikepacking category. Enter the Moots Routt and Routt 45....

New Year's Eve is a day most people are setting resolutions or goals for the next year, but I took this morning to reflect on 2015. ...

Goals are part of my internal make-up. The shiny threads woven into my unique fabric that keep me happiest in life....

Tomorrow will be my first ride on the trainer in a year. Some people may groan when they read this thinking that riding indoors is boring or worthless but these indoor rides are critical for my sanity and fitness during the winter. I don't mind riding when it's frigid cold out, but in Denver we get a lot of freeze/thaw/freeze which leaves a lot of black ice. Black ice and over confident drivers shouldn't be put together, but they often are on the streets of Denver. Additionally, riding the trainer gives you very dedicated training time to knock out intervals and pile on the watts. You don't need to find the perfect road, or be frustrated with stop lights and you can get your work out done quickly during kids naps! There are many trainers on the market these days, and in an effort to add clarity to the confusion I put together a quick guide to the essential pieces that you need to know when buying a trainer.
