  1. 6 Folding Bikes you can take with you Wherever you Go

    So you want to ride a bike everywhere but there are just times when clunking around even the lightest bike just isn't going to work out. What do you do? Walk? You didn't get into cycling so you could be a pedestrian and you sure as hell didn't get into it to drive somewhere (Kidding. Love you car. Please don't break down.). You got into cycling so you could travel and see the world from a different perspective. At least that's how it started. Now it's an obsession you can't let go of...
  2. Cycling 101: Posture

    As the ride leader for a bike tour outfit that travels all over the country, I\'ve had the opportunity to observe just about every riding style there is. And while our focus is more on enjoying the scenery than winning Strava segments, we recognize that poor form on the bike can ruin a relaxed ride as much as it can hurt your chances in a race. Knee pain, a stiff neck and an aching lower back make for a rough day in the saddle whether you\'re pushing the pace or poking along. To help reduce...
  3. Going to the Sun in Montana

    You know you\'re on a real bike adventure when you find yourself face to face with a rather large and overly protective mother mountain goat. And if you do find yourself in that situation, I would recommend slowly backing away. You don\'t really have a feel for how big these animals are and how intimidating they can be until you\'re a couple of feet from making contact. That\'s when the mind starts wondering if those slow deliberate strides in your direction are suddenly going to turn into a...
  4. Machu Picchu Tours

    Machu Picchu is the best combination of nature and architecture. Anybody that will try to talk about Peru will say Machu Picchu is symbol of Peru. So, in any picture relating Peru or South America there will came out a photo of Machu Picchu, but why is that happen? It is simple; Machu Picchu is the most important discovery from the past century, is the most important archaeological center in the Entire Americas and it its the most important legacy of our ancestors the Incas to the humanity....

  7. maya trailer review

    Company Website - [URL="http://www.mayacycles.com"]www.mayacycles.com[/URL] Manufacturer - maya The trailer comes with an original hitch for attaching the trailer to the bike. This hitch is much more complicated and frustrating that it has to be. It has several washers, spacers and nuts that fit on a quick release skewer that's excessively long and cumbersome. When you ride the bike without the trailer, these spacers create an annoying cling and jingle with road vibration. The last of these spacers has a nut with a welded lock...

  14. Van Moof 6.7 Review

    In 2009, I saw a company photograph of a Van Moof and was instantly awestruck. The photo was shot in an urban street with industrial walls surrounding it; the simplicity of the lines, aluminum frame, clever use of the beat leather and overall vintage style made it pop right out at you. It looked like a piece of art that you could ride. A bike with class. However, looks can only draw you in so far, so my goal became to ride one and see if that engineered style and class conveyed into a great...
