Still on my Bike Expo high from last weekend, I took advantage of the beautiful weather today and joined my first Cascade daily ride! The Cascade Training Series kicked off this weekend and while Saturday’s crowd enjoyed a wet welcome to the cycling season, this morning’s ride was a wonderful way begin training for the 2007 STP.
From beginner to racer, cruiser to carbon, these rides are a great way to steadily increase mileage in preparation for your big summer event. Wonderful people, fantastic ride leaders and incredible riding weather! So hug your bike, hope for sun and join us throughout the series.
Team Bike Hugger is racing at Redlands next week and blogging all about it. They’re introducing themselves now on our team special feature blog, talking about what it takes, and being a newbie.
If you’re at Redlands, they’ll be easy to spot in their Bike Hugger shirts.
Ride for Climate is a US bicycle tour to raise awareness of global warming and encourage action. It starts in Boston on 4/21 with two global warming experts riding across the US, stopping along the way to give presentations on global warming and discuss solutions. The tour will continue onto South America. Maybe they’ll cross paths with Pedal?
Having traveled and toured a few places on bike, I understand how much more you see and will never forget the impact of riding up Thompson Pass and suddenly realizing how big Alaska is and it’s f’ing big!
Project Pedal is a video-podcast/documentary about a small group’s coast-to-coast bicycle trip and the other travelers they cross paths with on the road. The 3rd episode explains the casting call for a June/July ride this summer. Last year, we met the Ditty Bops in a similar adventure. Check these Project Pedal episodes for more:
If you ride with Pedal, let us know how it went.
