SWAMPLOCROSS!

CX is now. There is no more #crossiscoming, there is no more #therewillbemud. Cross is here and mud is being. On Sunday, October 12, Semi-Tough and Yeah You Ride officially launched New Orleans cyclocross with an unofficial swamp-jammin’, beer-chuggin’, bike-racin’, family friendly gnar-fest. The course was comprised largely of the City Park Singletrack, and was…

Play Streets – Nola’s First Easy Streets Event

Many moons ago, New Orleans was a city with a great public transit infrastructure. Neighborhoods were compartmentalized and self-sustaining, requiring fewer long trips for goods and services.

Nola to Angola: A Ride to The Farm

On Friday morning, October 18, our friend Katie (KDHL), recent alleycat winner and leader of Loose Bloomers Cycling Club, will be among 40 cyclists embarking on a three-day, 170 mile ride to Angola Prison.

The Way Things Are – A DSGP Update

You may have noticed we’ve been pretty quiet over here for the past week or so. Never at a shortage for words, there is clearly an explanation afoot.

Going For Goldsprints – Guest Gallery by Christine Moser!

We kicked off 2 Broke 4 The Worlds with Goldsprints, everyone’s favorite way to cramp up and burn out legs before a big race. For the unacquainted, Goldsprints are stationary bike races. Two fixed gear bikes on roller stands, hooked up to a computer that tells the world who cranked out the faster time for…
