Along The Road Like Bridesmaids At A Farmer’s Wedding

Farm-Bike-Before

They came at me along the road like bridesmaids at a farmer’s wedding. Equally spaced to the horizon by winter madness. The club run exploded, their kit admitted that they were still 30km from home. I drove on in the opposite direction, the gaps became less regular and the rider’s arms straighter. Some feckin mullet showing off and destroying a club run with bravado and new wheels; … [Read more...]

I Am Electric. This Is Why I Ride.

7660865794_680bbbe0fa_z (500x317)

Written by: Myles McCory My front tyre scribes the perfect arc around the final bend on the descent. Sweeping the inside edge of the white line paints my racing line. My fore fingers sit alert teasing the levers but applying no pressure. To scrub off velocity on this stunning road would be a sin. Out of the corner and on, flat now, the bike sling shots into the far gutter -I drop it down to … [Read more...]

Go For The REAL Stuff

foodgracehearth (550x405)

Written by: Lea Crosetti, RD, CSSD As a sports dietitian and endurance athlete, I am always looking for new food variations to eat out on the course. Whether it be an attempt to “go more natural”, avoid the GI issues with sugary sports nutrition products, or simply get more variety and tasty foods my body is craving while cycling, it’s the quest to find a nourishing, tolerable and tasty … [Read more...]

Product Review: KUAT NV Bicycle Rack

KUAT NV Rack in tilted position

I am blown away. Blown away at the look, ease, strength, security, and most recently the customer service of Kuat, the company that manufactures the NV bike rack. The Kuat (koo-at) NV bike rack is packed with some of the greatest features that I didn't know I needed in a bike rack until I recently started using this hitch mounted bike rack. Aside from the WOW factor of a bike rack that happens … [Read more...]

Life Is Better Pedaled

angrydriver1

He sounded like an ambulance of anger, the way he yelled out the window at us. All red faced and scary and wrong. “GET off the phuckinn rRr….” was all I got before his rage was lost in diesel smoke and speed. On any 100km spin I will meet a ‘him’ at least once. Some mental loon, who feels the need to wind down his window and bark displeasure at my cycling. I will meet his brother … [Read more...]

Blog Post: Up, Open, Then Down

How slow I was moving was a surprise to the sheep who momentarily stopped chewing and just glared as I inched past. The stillness of the day whispered around my ears now the wind no longer rushed by. The gradient meant desperately punched pedaling, drawing harsh vertical lines instead of light circles with my cranks. It’s not that the climb was particularly steep, but the few big … [Read more...]

Pack Fodder Bicycle Blog: Cloud Chasing

Back Camera

It was the best of days, it was the worst of days. Sitting with most of my gear on, waiting for the second pot of coffee to empty and the rain to stop. Three times I made it to the front door, worn cleats snapping on the tiles. Three times, I returned to the kitchen defeated by the rain. With each minute that passed -a kilometre was knocked off my planned spin. When the kettle was clicked … [Read more...]
