Youth Bike Summit

An event I regret missing happened last Valentines Day and it was the Youth Bike Summit


This annual summit aims to transform local communities and strengthen the national movement by empowering youth bicycle leaders. Youth from across the country will meet at Bike Works and nearby neighborhood locations for 3 days to share ideas and learn together.

In the last five years the Youth Bike Summit has grown to be a national event drawing people from 26 states and 4 countries last year! 484 youth, adults, educators, bikers, crafters, makers and enthusiasts attended last year with 125 additional participants watching online.

Good stuff and I hope to attend next year. The organizers uploaded the keynotes to YouTube and they’re shared above.

Eroica CA


Was just talking this weekend about a new ride to do, something unique and different…then today, got the PR that Eroica CA registration is open.

Eroica CA will be held from April 10-12, 2015 in Paso Robles, California. Registration is limited to 1000 riders and a cost of $150 per-entrant. There are three course distances: 123, 65 and 41-miles.

Owned and organized by the founders of Italy’s famous L’Eroica vintage bike ride, participants may only use a bicycle that was built before 1987, with many riders using two-wheelers built prior to World War II.

Part of the proceeds benefiting local non-profit, Hospice of SLO County.

The ride will take place on Sunday, April 12 and the weekend will include a Classic Bicycle Concours in central Paso Robles and will also feature a vintage market, including classic bicycles, parts and other merchandise.



Couples on Valentines Day



Issue 21 Seasons

Issue 21

The cover: it’s like you want to be wrapped in it, make a comforter with the pattern.

Issue 21 Seasons is available now on iTunes and the Web with articles about fat bikes, gravel, racing, roadies, and relationships.

And lines from our contributors like these:

…fat bikes are machines that emit joy, both for the rider and everyone that encounters them

I like the intersection of road bikes, unpaved roads and wildly varied terrain

As middle-aged men took to Twitter expressing their rage they did so without looking at the fact that every team invited to the 2015 Tour of California is better on a competitive level than Airgas-Safeway.

Annual subscriptions are $16 or an individual issue for $4. Your money directly supports the authors, photographers, and editors who contribute to Bike Hugger.
