Veterans Day Bicycles

Expecting a war bicycle on Veterans Day? Of course and this photo is from the 25th Infantry Bicycle Corps.

Read their story on the Army History Journal and remember, CX was invented during War time too

In the late 1890s, the bicycle craze was sweeping [Europe and North America, not just within the civilian population, but also within military circles. Many countries in Europe had established the bicycle as a means to move formations of troops onto the battlefield economically and swiftly. American military observers at maneuvers across Europe reported back to their superiors in Washington on the success of the military bicycle.

25th Infantry Bicycle Corps story was also a PBS special and now on YouTube

Katusha in Showers Pass

Katusha in Showers Pass jackets

An issue about how heavy rain weighs on our minds drops on iTunes and the web today with these articles from me, Patrick Brady, Zanne Blair, Kyle Ranson, and Matt Haughey.

The story by Kyle I first heard at Interbike during a Showers Pass media meeting and asked them to share it in our magazine. It’s the free cover story and about a small Portland company supplying a Tour de France team.

One otherwise average February day in Portland, Oregon, Showers Pass got a call from Team Katusha’s promoters. The spring classics were just around the corner, and the racers were in desperate need of some decent rain jackets.
