Over the weekend when I was riding Fisher Farms my handlebar kept popping and my rea…

This morning I attended my first cyclocross race of the year, and notably the first one in over a year and a half.

Prep Work and Bicycle Builds Never build a bi…

…from a sharp off-camber turnto the main level of the course. Lots of sharp turns that got progressively rutted as the day went on, and some pine needle sections that you had to pay close attention to in order to not spin.

What has been your best moment on the bike so far this year? Riding with women who ar…

…without pain. A doctor’s appointment booked, and later an MRI. The end result of this minor crash was a miss-tracking patella and a small tear on the cartilage behind my patella.
