Posted by on Oct 11, 2016 in Gravel Grind, Reasons to Ride | No Comments

Saturday’s True to Brew to Brew to True ride is now officially plotted and pre-ridden, and will be an absolute blast…for the rider looking for a little adventure.  Why adventure?  Because in addition to riding beautifully paved roads, we’ll be riding on some unimproved roads, some dirt trails, some gravel paths, and a sprinkling of […]

True to Brew: Black Hog and OEC

Posted by on Oct 5, 2016 in News | No Comments

If you’ll recall, the last True to Brew group ride, “The Coast,” was on the hottest day of the year, of the poorest air quality, of maximum humidity, and ended at an air condition-less brewery, or as we’d call it, a complete success. Just look how sweaty we were: The next installment, to be held […]

Detour de Connecticut: A Day in the Saddle

Posted by on Sep 7, 2016 in Gravel Grind, Group Ride Recap, News | 5 Comments

The Detour de Connecticut was a bit of a mystery as far as I could tell.  From all I had heard, the ride itself was similar in design to the famed D2R2, in that it was mostly off road, close to 120 miles in length, offered rolling hills, views, farmland, and required bikes with a […]

I have more than twelve years of experience working with Seven Cycles, who just summarized why they are, in my opinion, the best custom builder in the world namely, because they listen, then proceed as a team, working side by side with the rider and the bike shop to ensure the very best bike gets fabricated.  […]

Monday Night Ramble

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in News | No Comments

I had heard stories, or rather legends, from rides past.  Torrential downpours.  Flat tires.  Riders flying over their bars.  Flat tires.  The lone rider of the apocalypse who showed up on a Zagster rental bikes and promptly scorched the course.  Flat tires.  Single track through moonlit fields of thigh high hay with nothing more than […]

Posted by on Jul 27, 2016 in News | No Comments

On our fifth and final day of riding, we started with an epic descent on our way to Matera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We walked down until we were near the cave dwellings, which were now touristy restaurants, and indulged.    

Puglia, Italy in Pictures, Day 4

Posted by on Jul 25, 2016 in News | No Comments

Day four brought us to our first real climb of the trip into the Pollino mountains.  We’d cover 4,500′ of climbing in a little less than 25 miles.  Plus it was hot, and we got a late start, adding to the heat.  The scenery however, was enough to ease the pain, and the water was […]

Puglia, Italy in Pictures, Day 3

We worked our way through the maze of Trullis to the viewpoint atop the city. But they’d serve espresso to anyone. Day four photos will be posted soon, thanks for looking.
