A Wash of a Weekend

Going in to the weekend I had great plans for riding every day, enjoying time with my lovely and hitting up roller-coasters at Carowinds. Can I tell you that I did not do almost any of those things? While the closest I got to riding was overhauling the Airborne Goblin Saturday morning, and cleaning out my car from all the water bottles I have been collecting for the past two weeks. Yes, that is the closest I came to riding. It stunk. More to com…

Burley D'Lite Child Trailer

Review: Burley D’Lite Child Trailer

Earlier in the summer Burley sent out a D’Lite Child Trailer for review purposes. Walking into the review I knew from my experience in the past with Burley, their trailers and the quality they take around design and development – I would be pleased with the results…

Tech Tuesday: How to Adjust a Threadless Headset

Make sure to visit the sponsors of this posts.. Problem Solvers! One concern that so many women (and guys) have with owning a bike is the basics of fixing it, or how to do basic road side repairs. I do recommend that as an avid cyclist even with some mechanical skills that you should become best buds with your local mechanic (beer or ice cream works well.)

Race Day Rituals

Pre-Race Preparation, Rituals and Stupidity

Mud and Cowbells put together a great Powerpoint deck of pre-race rituals…
