The time has come. The riders are here and they’re ready to go. There’s been so much anticipation for the Crit this year and we can really tell how far this event has come from its initial roots. There certainly is a bit of tension in the air as riders must first qualify to be [...]

Timbuk2 in NYC

Brooklyn Bridge

We’ve landed in New York, dropped of our bags and hit the road as we prepare for the start of the Red Hook Crit. Today we met with Neil Bezdek who lent us his steed to ride around the Big Apple. We headed to Brooklyn across the Brooklyn Bridge to meet with David Trimble, the [...]

“Roadways Are the New Runways”

Remember this? The NYT’s latest take on cycle chic is still a reach for normal humans but it’s something to aspire too. The article features real women on bikes, even if they’re all conveniently fabulous. Apparently “roadways are the new runways” and cyclists are simply “pedestrian on wheels.” I’m way too practical for the bicycle [...]
