Review: Road Holland The Delft Long Sleeve Jersey

…ly mesh was warm enough with a wind vest on a 50′ day. Personally, I would classify this as a long sleeve light weight “spring” jersey. It also wears well with a pair of jeans. I’m wearing a size large in the pictures which fits great in torso and arm length. The body is a bit baggy but I find that to be the problem with any women’s shirt when I need the torso/arm length for a long sleeve shirt since I am so tall. Ov…

North Meck CX #2 Race Report

…ing at 6pm. The way it works is the course wraps around 4 different baseball and softball fields, utilizing the lights of the fields to light up the area outside of the fence. Up and down the hills, between the fields, some run ups, some barriers and always good fun but never on the ball fields! I lined up this week with the boys. There were no girls to play with. Very sad since I know several women that would rack the season but they never show…

Commuting Basics: If You Arrive on Time, You’re Late

…uch. Wear wicking clothing and have spares. I wear a running t-shirt in the wicking material, or an Ice Breaker light weight wool t-shirt. Unless it’s under 70 I come prepared with a different shirt. The same goes for the bottom, except I bring extra unders! Working in a bike shop I’ll wear the same pair of jeans 3 or so days straight, leaving them at the shop but bringing in clean underwear every day with me. Action Wipes. It’s…

Banjo Brothers Frame Bag

Review: Banjo Brothers Frame Bag

Above is a great example of what I normally carried in the frame bag. A random piece of fruit or a small, light-weight, rain jacket are missing from the photo. Roughly a month ago I did a quick preview of the Banjo Brothers Frame Bag, which you can read over here. The bag has around 700 commuting miles and a couple accidental tumbles while gravel grinding. Banjo Brothers Frame Bag $32.99-34.99 Size on test: Medium Size and type of bike tested on…

Motivational Monday with Mary

My Surly Long Haul Trucker and Rivendell Quickbeam are perfect for bike commuting and grocery shopping.

I also own a Bike Friday TIkit, which is a fast-fold bike designed for commuting and…
