Cycling Tips

Originally, I posed this question over at CommuteByBike.com, with amazing feedback, but want to include all the ladies that may not read a commuting targeted blog. Every so often I’ll be coming to you, the readers, to learn what exactly you want to covered.   Hopefully this...

A base layer is a thin layer of fabric that has one or two job to do as a piece of clothing.  The first and most important is to wick.  Wicking away your sweat or built up moisture helps with your body temperature control and keeps you warmer in the cold weather or colder in the hot weather.

It is a wonderful time of year, some places in the US have received snow already, and others are only now finishing the changing of the leaves.  This is also the time of year you need to decide if you are investing in extra winter...

Here is your chance to let all of us women know what your favorite pieces for winter are. Tell us the brand, why you like them and what you would change. I'll be following it up with winter clothing essentials later this week....

How do I ride during my menstrual cycling?

A tough question, that only seems to be asked by women with very tough skin or no shame. It is something that all women go through, and daily riders can't take the few days off to deal with their monthly "friend."
Our first guest post from another Bike Shop Girl, Sarah Matchett.  Sarah is a USA Cycling coach based out of my shop, Cool Breeze Cyclery in North Carolina.  Sarah recently competed in the UCI World Duathlon Championships, placing 10th overall in women (non-elite.) Sarah Matchett I’m often asked how I keep doing what I do.  5 a.m. mornings, endless miles on the trainer, in the pool.  Worn out running shoes… worn out dog.  Folks think I have some secret knowledge, or extra gear that keeps me uninjured, motivated, strong and healthy.  The truth is, there is no secret gear.  No magic pill, no religious practice, no expensive bike part that will bring you the results you want.  There is simply, moving your body, more than zero, every day.
There is a buzz online about a couple different individual packaged wipes.  The first one we are going to talk about and get into a review is Grease Monkey Wipes.  Designed originally for cyclist these degreaser wipes claim to even clean crayon off the wall.

Men have it easy, across the board it seems, with cycling. Clothing fits them easier, they don't need specially designed bikes normally and most men don't care what rain gear looks like or how it fits on them....

One of the most popular types of bicycles right now is that recreational style.  Either one to ride with the family around your community, take for errands or maybe do a Rail To Trails with your local church group.  Below I have outlined a good amount of the various lifestyle bikes out there, depending on which brand you try the options may vary but I can do my best to help you along the way.
