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…

Full Review: 2012 Raleigh RX 1.0 Women’s Cyclocross Bike

…t tires I’ve seen on a stock cross bike under $2k. Recommendations After my first real ride I swapped the seat. You should know my love of Fizik Vesta saddles and that is what was put on the seatpost. I didn’t change out anything else, not the handlebars, stem, seatpost or tires. This bike (other than saddle which is personal preference) is out of the box ready to race and be ridden hard. My only other recommendation is to take some…

Nintendo Wii & Cycling, Together

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…
