Motivational Monday with Mac in Chicago

…” Which was a nice little moment of affirmation. Tell us what you ride I have one right now. It’s a Trek 3900 mountain bike, matte black. Her name is Bernedine, and I’ve been riding her for…eight years now. She was the first bike I ever bought entirely with my own money. She rides smooth, but she’s tough and can take the obstacle-course like Chicago streets. A lot of people don’t understand why I don’t wa…

Why Should We Buy Local When It Isn’t Equal?

…ocal bike shops. While I have the softest place in my heart saved for local bike shops with out the name “Trek” or “Giant” in their name, I also have a higher level of standards for these shops.

2014 Breck Epic

Breck Epic: Keystone Aqueduct
