Bike Set Up - A Female Perspective
Bike Set Up - A Female Perspective
Despite what you might guess, my bike set up is not significantly different from the guys'. In fact, I'd say that my set up is a function of weight, height, and riding style (all which don't really have anything to do with gender).
Review: Maui Road Riding
Review: Maui Road Riding
For the cycling People of the North (i.e. Canadians), finding a reliable and enjoyable winter riding destination is a must. As a professional who's been skipping out on winter for the last 5-6 years, I've tried out my fair share of locations. SoCal, NorCal, South Carolina, Victoria (BC), Tucson, and most recently, Maui. For those whose interest is piqued by that last destination, here is a review of the road riding available on the island: the routes, what you'll need to know and bring, logistic positives and negatives, and suggestions for making a riding vacation/training camp work.
HOW TO LOVE FALL RIDING
HOW TO LOVE FALL RIDING
Fall is my favourite time to ride. Crisp air, hero dirt, gorgeous colours, and the freedom to ride for endless hours without the thought of racing… what more could you want? Apparently, though, some people aren’t as into fall riding as me.
Racer’s Amnesia
Racer’s Amnesia
With the scrunched up nose, squinted eyes, and universally recognized “icky” mouth formation, it looks like I might be about to puke (or at least spit out whatever Lespy is trying to feed me). Alas, my friends, this is simply what we call a Suffer Face.
Giving 100%
Giving 100%
A few years ago, I went through a season where I gave up whenever things got hard. When faced with a challenge in life or on the bike, I recoiled while the thoughts of “I can’t do this” or “this is too hard” took over my brain. There are a lot of reasons why this was happening – low self-esteem and confidence, results-based focus, and joyless participation are some of the main factors.
World Cup Aftermath
You’ve all seen the “before” photos from a World Cup – the nicely laid out kit, bottles, gels, and number plate that give you an idea of what goes in a World Cup racer’s race day bag. You’ve also all read the “race recaps” – the posts that go into great detail about how a race went down. So, I decided to give you something a little bit different to read: a story of World Cup Aftermath.
Making the Transition
Making the Transition
Making the jump from Junior to U23, or U23 to Elite is tough. In each case, the fields are bigger, faster, and more unrelenting.
The Big Unveiling: "Take a Moment" With Haley
The Big Unveiling: "Take a Moment" With Haley
Over the past few months, I have been working on creating a colouring book. Borne out of my mindfulness practice, this book combines some of my favourite (and simplest) activities for de-stressing and relaxation.
PB and Maple Ride Bars
PB and Maple Ride Bars
Maybe I’m picky, but store-bought bars do not sit well with me. No matter how natural their ingredients, I always feel icky after 4 hours worth of bars on the bike.
