Ritchey Road Logic 2.0

A few of you might have already seen me zipping about at rides and races on my first ever new bike build. I love it. This steel framed Road Logic rides like a dream. The perfect amount of flex but still responsive enough when it needs to be. The build is not quite complete as…

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…

CX In the Swamp

We’ll be out there again this Thursday at 6pm. Our ‘cross guru won’t be out with us, but we’ll run things in a similar format as last time: practice some technical aspects, ride the course a few times at easy pace and then a four lap race for bragging rights. Bring: Bike suitable for offroad…

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…

Race Recap: Independence Day Classic

The thunder woke me around 7. Rain pelted the windows. No light came from around the curtains. In the bathroom, water dripped from a crack in the ceiling into the sink, a metronome counting out no particular time. “Shit.” I thought, “What a lovely day for bicycle racing.” My phone lit the room like a slow…

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…

Feliciana Road Race Recap

They say you never forget your first time. I’m inclined to agree. My first USAC sanctioned road race was so full of firsts that it will probably be burned into my memory for a good while. Last Sunday, I went up to the rolling hills of St. Francisville to compete in the Felicana Road Race,…

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…
