Airborne Goblin 29er Preview

First Taste of a New Bicycle

…can’t wait to get my butt on the bike to taste my new bike! Today’s the Day As I walk into the 2011 Sea Otter Classic I have a few things on my mind, and a few things to take care of but I am ultimately excited to be testing out what I’ll be riding the rest of 2011. Between the Airborne Goblin 29″ and the Airborne Delta CX my butt will mostly be rotating between some variation of these two bikes. Look for an initial pre…

Motivational Monday with Rebecca Rusch

…igh school girls race team in my home town (Wheel Girls), and the first event of the year, SRAM Ladies Lounge at Sea Otter! I will also hopefully be showing the 2010 Race Across the Sky Leadville 100 film in various locations as IMBA fundraisers. I love racing and have no intention of stopping anytime soon, but I also love to share my experience with other riders and help people find out how great riding a bike is! These extra projects are all ju…

Things I am Thankful For

Currently I am on vacation with my family in Bozeman, Montana (if you live around here let me know and we can get coffee.) The post are limited, and the thinking of bicycles is rare. I’m doing my best to spend time with my family, meet new family and freeze my rear off in the snow. Christmas is a great time to look back and be thankful for what you have and what you were able to achieve in the past year. I’m not a very religious pers…

2011 Airborne Goblin 29er Full Review

With over 300 miles on the Airborne Goblin that I’m riding for the season the bike has been tested.  I’ve ridden the bike to the limits and pushed it, then pushed it a bit more.  Now it is time for a good and fair review for all of you holding your breath wondering if you should purchase one!  During the 300 miles the Goblin has seen a little bit of everything, from commuting, local single track and a 24 hour race on its shoulders….

Motivational Monday Katie Holden

Motivational Monday with Katie Holden

I met Katie last year at Sea Otter. A kick ass, down to earth, downhill chick. She talked about mountain technique, safety and was a smiling face that many women need to see when relating to “GNAR-CORE” riders. Super approachable and always wanting to help other women get stronger! What’s your name and location? My name is Katie Holden and I live in Scotts Valley, CA (near Santa Cruz) What type of cycling do you enjoy? I was born an…

Airborne Bicycles: A Partnership

…Essentially Flight Crew members are a small group of brand ambassadors.   You get to ride a bike, for free, goto Sea Otter (to work the booth), for free, and encourage cycling.   When I heard this news I was ecstatic.  I already had my eye on on an Airborne Goblin for the 2011 season, and if I could become part of the team? Great! “A” Stands For :  Arleigh Awesome Airborne That was my tag line for my entry to the Flight crew.  Apparen…

2014 Breck Epic: Pennsylvania Gulch

…ew granny gear. After aide 1, I found myself with another rider from Texas. He was really chatty from being from sea level and we stayed together until aide 2. On the fast, loose descent down Sallie Barber I heard a few Yee-HAWs behind me as he seemed to enjoy the relief from climbing. It was quite entertaining to ride with him. I’m always impressed with the sea level riders who come to Breck to race. The last 5 miles were the most pleasant…

Nintendo Wii & Cycling, Together

It seems that the Nintendo Wii has a new game and accessory out, a stationary bike. The Cyberbike comes from European publisher Bigben Interactive, who generally deal more in video game accessories than they do full0-fledged titles, and when you get right down to it, the Cyberbike contains a lot more accessory than it does game. The game that comes packed-in places you in the role of an eco-citizen, using your head and legs to clean up the pl…

Find Me at Interbike

Shortly, I’ll be headed to the airport for the hop down to Las Vegas for a few days at Interbike 2013. I’ll be there this afternoon through Thursday night, and most of the time found in the Pearl Izumi Custom booth (1525 I think!) Unique for me this year is that I’ll be there working a booth. For the first time ever I’m not on official media business, though I do have a media pass and will be walking around Thursday after…
