Pull out the inhaler, because you are going to need help to keep up. This week we take a look at bike lanes, inhalers, the Grey Wolf, domestic pro bike racing (it exists), and what is the deal with amateur bike racers?
The twelfth episode of the Slow Ride podcast barely mentions professional bike racing, and focuses on everything that is awesome about folding bikes, sidewalk surfing and the stain that is local sandbaggery.
Let’s be honest. We have all done stupid things on bicycles. Lot’s of times you don’t want anyone to know, but all too often you are surrounded by your closest friends who will never let you forget. In other news, Spencer won the Giro Fantasy contest.
As summer heats up and the world of bikes is brighter than ever. The Super Rookie is back delivering packages and Spencer is off to Mexico City to race at the Messenger World Championships. The Little Guy is an actual messenger and he’s not impressed.
The Giro Fantasy League is heating up, Little Guy raced with 1300 people at a free gravel road race and Tim loves it when other people make embarrassing mistakes, but all of that pails in comparison to when the worst car company for cyclists is named.
The best and the worst in the week of cycling are covered with extra attention paid to Spencer’s propensity to be the worst person around and Tim’s mancrush on disgraced amateur cyclists. We then have a meta-conversation about Merckx.
Catch up on the best and worst in cycling for the last week of April 2014. In this week’s episode we decide to not use the term Gravel Grinder, discuss Ricardo Ricco’s favorite things and decide our favorite moments on a bike.
A little known French race called Tro-Bro Leon, the Little 500 and a fun commute to work all top the list for the best things in cycling, but can they be outdone by the worst things in cycling including the season long hiatus of Rouleur Derby!
