Pedal the Chill Away

Living in Florida offers a year-round training ground. While northerly friends of ours might be relegated to indoor trainers during these winter months we get to enjoy afternoon rides in temperatures that range from 50-80 degrees. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Some things to keep in mind as we pedal our way through […]

Compression Socks – Why Wear Them?

Increased vascularity in the legs of cyclists is both a blessing and a hidden curse. Genetics plays a role in how the vascularity presents itself later in life through varicose and / or spider veins. The weakening of the walls of the vessels causes leakage and sometimes pooling of blood in the legs. This […]

2018 Goals

 

Here I sit, over a week into the New Year and I have yet to put into writing what my cycling goals are. Not that I haven’t been giving it thought – a whole lot of thought – but more than likely that I have been a bit afraid to commit to some lofty […]

Are You Up for the Maiden Voyage Tour?

They have come onto the cycling scene out of nowhere. In early October I spoke with the owner and it was just an idea, just a plan. A cycling friend of mine, Phil Diehl, bought a commercial bus and was going to outfit it for cyclists – for custom tours. He told me how […]

The other week a friend of mine and I were out zipping though the hills when she noticed an odd sound from her back wheel as we propelled ourselves up Buckhill.  We stopped so that she could look at it and a resident came toward us, asking if we needed any help.  She assured him […]

Stop It Already

There are many people in this world who like to argue to hear themselves. Then there are others who would just assume turn and run when it appears conflict is about to begin. And there are those who will stand up somewhere in the middle. This is my attempt to stand up and voice […]

You Kneed to Know This

We have all been told of the many benefits of cycling: cardiovascular health, lower blood pressure, stress relief (as long as you keep the bike upright), fat loss, coordination and improved balance among others. Many of us come from a running background where the jarring of the joints simply got to be too much for our […]

Aero or No-no?

As a kid, one of my favorite magazines was Highlights. For those readers who are under the age of 30, this may be foreign to you. However, for you who were born in the late 60’s or 70’s, you know exactly what I mean. As soon as I got a new copy, I would […]
