Weekly Bike Commuting Update

After last week’s post of finding motivation, I’ve put my legs to the grindstone and found happiness in both days of commuting on Thursday and Friday. With threats of rain (flooding to be exact) each day as I pedaled closer to home I found myself chasing rainbows and finding peace with where I am. Next week I hope to track my food intake better, at least for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Not down to calories, but just to have a better clue…

Colorado Winter Cycling

Staying Motivated During the Polar Vortex and Colorado Winters

I need to confess, I haven’t been riding my bike as you can probably tell from the lack of updates and Strava achievements. In the cold and dark I’ve been turning to running and exploring the trails near my home. While this isn’t ideal for a content on a cycling specific site it is ideal for my happiness. My 2014 goals include no bike races for the first time in many years but instead to explore more and become a more rounded a…

Bike Commuting in Denver: Part III

An on going series of riding and commuting in my new city of Denver Colorado.

Holiday Wish List for Bicyclist: Stocking Stuffers

Ideas for what to put in that stocking of the cyclist you love, or me! Lizard Skins Bar Tape or Ergon Grips Fresh new bar tape from Lizard Skins or Ergon GP2 grips are the easiest way to freshen up a bike.

Race Report: 2013 6 Hours of Warrior Creek

This was the fourth year of testing my metal against the 6 Hours of Warrior Creek. Each year as half of a women’s duo, my partner Melissa has always been the ringer for us and I wanted to be able to pull my half of the race as strong as she could. Originally, this race was supposed to be a tuning race for the Burn 24 in late May. As plans have changed, boxes are being packed and I realized this would be my last race in the southeast it bec…
