Seattle Weekend Cyclocross Events

Busy cyclocross weekend coming up in Seattle – The Seattle Cyclocross Series #1 is on Sunday the 30th in Snohomish (directions) and promises to be a great event.

If you’re looking to do a bit of brush up before the race you can get some tips from Jonathan Page and Frank McCormack on Friday (28th) and Saturday (29th). Herriott Sports Performance and Cascade Bicycle Studio will be hosting the Jonathan Page Cyclocross Weekend, including two 3 hour workshops on Saturday and a evening presentation and auction on Friday. Page is America’s premiere cross racer and the best American in history in this discipline. Great chance to see a master at work!

Hed Jet 60 C2

Just in time for the Industry Cup Criterium tonight and the Hugga Hookup, Hed Cycling, sent us their latest wheels and we’re breaking the news here. The deal with these wheels is that they’ve got a 23MM wide aluminum rim and what that does is change the profile of the tire: wider is better. And, you’ve got to ride it to believe it, but they roll like tubies. Not only that, but the wider rim makes for one stiff, strong, and bombproof wheelset.

Cycling in Vegas

This year, with Andrew, Mark, and Mike covering their angles at Interbike, I’m spending time cycling and blogging Vegas. The Nevada RTC has just completed a 14-mile bike expressway from Vegas to Red Rock Canyon.

A few years ago, Pam and I rode to Red Rock right from our hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Off the strip, Vegas has these massive bus lanes that we rode in and miles of bike lanes, signed routes, and shared-use trails. It’s surprising, yes, but Vegas is a bike-friendly town.

Last night, I rode the Strip – not something I’d want to do more than say once, but it was an impromptu, rock-the-bike, longtail parade. Also, all that smut you get in Vegas, the girls-in-your-room cards are delivered by couriers on bikes.

What Stays in Vegas on bikes

Joined a small bike parade tonight, down and around the Strip with Rock the Bike rocking the bike on the ectoplasmic Soul Cycle Chopper.
