Motivational Monday with Julie Paisant

…way I trained for races after that and it really paid off. Tell us all about your bikes I am currently riding a Ridley X-Fire for Cyclocross.

Your Spring Cleaning List

Do you ever have those days that you walk into your bike room or storage area to feel over whelmed? You simply want to ride your bike, but over the winter you have neglected your bike.

I walk into my garage, which is filled with bikes mind you, and realize I have a ton to do. Multiple bikes need w…
