A View to a Thrill

Posted by on Oct 19, 2015 in News, Reasons to Ride | 5 Comments

The first cyclocross bike I ever saw lacked so much grace, that I think I wrote off the sport right then and there.  This particular bike had linear pull brakes, travel adapters, an boxy fork, and a filthy pair of knobbies.  At the time, cross was new to me, and made little sense.  Who wants […]

Better than Expected

I thought I knew what peak season looked like. I thought I knew how pretty the White Mountains were. But then I rode up and over the Kancamagus Highway last weekend, and learned my lesson.  The colors and the views, right there in front of me, were too grand to accept as real life. This […]

Seasonal RLS

Posted by on Oct 1, 2015 in News, Reasons to Ride | No Comments

I may have developed an acute seasonal case of RLS.  Why?  So.  Many.  Reasons. #1  Autumn arrived in the middle of the night.  I woke, for the first time under the blanket, to a noticeable chill and the prominent sound of dry leaves rustling in the wind.  The air was crisp, which wasn’t the case […]

New Haven Grand Prix

New Haven’s first ever Grand Prix Criterium took place down town last night, and I am still feeling the excitement the morning after.  What a fun night.  People were lining Chapel Street, mingling, cheering, and eating at the tables the restaurants had put out next to the course.  Even though the announcers joked about how […]

A Trip To Luxe

Have you seen Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?  If so, think back to when Willie introduces the few remaining ticket holders to the Wonka Vision room.  If you’ll recall, he takes a giant Wonka Bar and zaps it with his proprietary camera, which sends it to a tv on the other side of the […]

The Ride of a Lifetime

Posted by on Sep 4, 2015 in Memories, News | No Comments

The last time I bought a road bike, my preferred riding discipline, was in the summer of 2005.  I was a year out of grad school and still feeling pretty green as a customer service representative at Seven Cycles.  Though I was always a cyclist, grad school put a damper on my riding, as I […]

Mystic

Posted by on May 31, 2015 in Group Ride Recap, News | No Comments

Hoop rolling and maple candy are the first things that come to mind whenever I think of Mystic, Connecticut.  These memories were formed during an elementary school field trip to the seaport many years ago where I learned that the early settlers played simple games while gorging themselves on maple candy by the gentle flicker […]

East Rock Dreams

Like a single loop of ribbon candy, my favorite hundred feet of road peaks out from the woods as fast as it turns back into the shadows, but that’s not why I like it.  For only a moment, this switchback offers a riding experience reminiscent of the French Alps or the Dolomites.  The road is […]
