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…

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…

Learnin’ Videos

Not long ago I found out about a campaign Metro was doing in L.A. to educate motorists about how to tolerate, anticipate, and not crush cyclists. I’m all about such education, and think that public knowledge of how existing infrastructure works must come before changes to that infrastructure and new rules (bike lanes, etc.). I…

NOLA Women on Bikes

Our good friend Katie Hunter-Lowrey (hopefully soon to be guest-blogger!) sent over some info on a new cycling group in New Orleans, NOLA Women on Bikes and their inaugural ride. We’re pretty pumped on the amount of cycling related events and groups forming in New Orleans right now. Let the good times roll. The info: \\ Wednesday…

The results are in and here’s how you fared. The number next to your name is the time you handed  Skip your manifest at 12 Mile Limit. So now you can get busy running your mouth about how fast you are, or denying you were ever there, depending on your time. Once again, big ups…
