The spring thaw finally getting going and the best time of year to ride just about here! By the sound of it, some may still be stuck with Old Man Winter for a bit longer, but at least freedom is on the horizon! So. Dang. Excited.

Forget planning trips or other things, let’s at least get out and ride in what is wonderful weather. The shear joy of blasting down the trails or feeling the wind go by on a perfect section of road, it’s hard to beat (especially if fresh pavement got put down over the off season, oh the joy...

A New Year Already?

Taking on Interbike - The Event

by Daniel Wijdenes October 13, 2018 2 min read

The show turned out to be a great opportunity to meet with brands that have incredible stories, reconnect with people we hadn't seen in a while and generally have a blast.

Every year in late September, it's time for Interbike which is, for now, still the most important bicycle trade show and demo in the USA.

Journey to the Ironman... Long Course

Journey to the Ironman... Long Course

by Kati Larice August 22, 2018 2 min read

Suddenly, it was as if my muscles finally understood what my brain wanted them to do. I went from uncoordinated flapping of arms to these rhythmic, timed movements. Pull, finish, lift, plunge, pull, finish lift plunge, breathe. It wasn’t perfect, but it was amazing. And just as I felt everything click, Danny saw it.
