New Orleans Women’s 100K

On July 20th, I was lucky to tag along with the New Orleans chapter of the Rapha Women’s 100K. Steamy mid-summer temps and epic downpours, these women were truly badass! Thanks to Murat Celebi for letting me stand all over his front seat and commandeer his vehicle as the official “media wagon”. Note: I don’t…

NOLA to Angola: 170 Miles Is Not That Far To Ride

Our good friend and cycling pal, KDHL, generously wrote about her experience doing the NOLA to Angola Ride. We think she is really cool for organizing and doing this ride, and extra cool for writing us an article about it and sharing these great photos.  From October 19-21st, 40 riders and support drivers traveled from…

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. Katie has been crucial in getting this off the ground, but isn’t just doing it because she loves to ride. The…

Rapha Women’s 100K

Yeah You Ride wasn’t able to make it the local version of Rapha Women’s 100K, but lucky for us (and you!), our good friend Katie Hunter-Lowrey agreed to guest blog for us. Thanks, Katie!  Enjoy! Thanks to Rob Sudan (@robsudan), @roulernola and @semitoughcycling for the photos.  I had been excited about this event for weeks,…

2 Broke 4 The Worlds – New Orleans Messenger Summit

One time, we were messengers. The pay was bad. After adjusting for on-shift burrito consumption, average net was ~$0 USD. Working with that kind of budget, it’s easy to rule out international travel. So for all the messenger community that can’t scrape together a measly $500,000 to go to Switzerland, pack up your bike and…

Cyclocross Practice

There Will Be Mud… CX is coming, like, for real. As the wet blanket that is NOLA summer is tucked in tightly around us, it’s not just a great escape, but a good idea to start dreaming about your favorite fall cycling activity. Skip Town put together a little skillshare/practice session yesterday at City Park…

Cyclocross Skillshare in City Park

The rumors are true. Cyclocross racing is coming to Louisiana, and we’re getting a leg up on training. Our good friend Skip is working hard to organize CX practice rides on the duathalon course in City Park. They are slated to be EVERY THURSDAY, 6PM AT PAN-AM STADIUM IN CITY PARK. We will start out…

Local Hardmen of the 512: Beat The Clock and Cycleast

Riding new roads is great, but at the end of the day, asphalt makes for a poor companion. A major highlight of our recent trip to Austin was the opportunity to link up with local riders who were not just solid in the saddle but genuinely cool people as well. Beat The Clock is an…

YYR On The Road: Austin, TX

This past weekend, Yeah You Ride went on a desert retreat with good friends from Semi-Tough Cycling Club. We rolled out of New Orleans, a caravan of hatchbacks, four men, five bikes, one chihuahua, all united in a quest for answers, thirsting for knowledge, and also Topo Chico mineral water. Saturday began earlier than any…

Tour de Lac

I saw this photo of Weston McWhorter’s in January and knew I was missing out on something special. So when Townsend Myers invited the Semi-Tough Cycling Club to Tour De Lac part Deux, I knew I had to be there. While the ride around Lake Pontchartain doesn’t offer much in elevation change, the approximately 160 miles through the steamy…

BLAMPING

The weekend before the Spring Brake Yr’sef madness, a few friends and I decided to take advantage of the weather and go BLAMPING (That’s glamourous camping on bikes, folks). Saint Bernard State park is a surprisingly scenic 13 mile ride from the Bywater. Don’t fret about how you’ll pack all your beer and hotdogs down…
