Tour de France

Our take on the the Tour brought to you fresh by the original Clip-n-Seal.

Taylor Phinney’s Win

Everybody loves a comeback, right? Not sure if Taylor Phinney is calling it a comeback, but he just won a stage of the US Pro Challenge.

See this video produced by Lululemon about Taylor’s recovery and his perspective on adversity with his father.

His way of thinking sure worked today and I reviewed Lulu’s kit on Medium, and in the latest issue of our magazine.

Issue 27: The Tour

Issue 27

The Tour de France is the grandest of all bike races, including a rich history with racing innovations that have changed how we ride. Issue 27 shares our take on the most famous bike race across France and dropped yesterday on iTunes and the Web.

While editing the issue, with an admittedly negative view of the Tour, I found and cited Harakirimushi’s manga in my editor’s letter. Because Froomey petting a lion reminded me to not take it and the sport so seriously. I mean even a big-headed, skin-and bones alpha roadie with an eating disorder looks adorable in whimsical drawings.


The free cover story discusses Froome’s miraculous performances and reminded us of the US Postal Service squad and it felt like we watched another sequel in a bad movie franchise.

Available on iTunes and the Web, the 27th issue of the magazine costs $4 an issue or $16 per year. Ad-free and published monthly, your money directly supports the authors, photographers, and editors who contribute to Bike Hugger.

Tour Recap

The Tour de France uploaded their 3-week recap edit yesterday and just watched it while working on Issue 27 of our magazine and before MTB in Colorado this weekend at Winter Park Resort and the Trestle Bike Park.

Trestle offers a lift and 58 trails sections. Having just rode in Park City and Deer Valley, interested in comparing the two. I’ve heard Trestle has amazing trails.

Tour de France: On the Podium

Best possible close to this Tour…Sagan machine gunning the crowd while Froome disapproves. As Jason Dul said, “Froome, in this vid, reminds me of Lee Trevino’s disapproval in Happy Gilmore.”

Our Tour de France Take

Our enthusiasm for the Tour this year ended at Stage 10 and Nathan Wright wrote about why in the Medium Bicycles Collection. His essay will appear in Issue 27 next month with more of our take on the tour. Did keep curating select tweets and watched the dramatic finale…
