  • Redbeard Round-up: Bike Love Edition

    Velo Joy on bike baths.

    Our friends at Recycle-A-Bicycle are throwing a fundraiser for the Kids Ride Club, which runs regular rides for kids in New York City. Watch Wadjda, a film about a precocious 10-year-old in Saudi Arabia who is determined to ride a bike despite her family's protests. March 1, 4-7:30pm, Made in NY Film Center @ 30 John St. in DUMBO. Reception with Middle Eastern food follows the screening.

    Pivotte, which bills itself as the first line of stylish performance wear for women, launched their Kickstarter. With 26 days to go, they've already raised over half their goal! I love the Desk-to-Date dress -- I could pair it with a red Velocio long-sleeve jersey for Fridays at the shop.

    In the world of racing: the Ladies' Tour of Qatar happened the other week! I'm just starting to get pulled into bike racing and I really enjoyed this blog post by racer Chloe Hosking. She talks about how the absence of wind complicated the race.

    The Track World Championships are happening in Paris next week, February 18-22; Missy Erickson is riding with Team USA!

  • Review: Gore Face Warmer

    Wilson Gore Face Mask (4)

    Model: Wilson G. 

    The best thing about the Gore Bike Wear Universal Face Warmer is that it does what it says it will do. It protects my face and ears during my chilly commute to work. I'm miserable every time I venture into the sharp, cold air without it.  

    Why does it work?  What makes the Gore Face Warmer so special? It's made of polyester, one of mankind's greatest inventions. As anyone from the '70s can attest, that stuff gets hot. Gore's Windstopper technology is an added bonus. They laminate the polyester to keep the wind from cutting through to your skin. Also, you don't have to worry about things getting too stuffy. See those little holes on the left side of the product? 

    Those allow you to breath freely while you're huffing, puffing, and cycling down the street.  One thing to keep in mind is your nose size.  My nose is on the small side, so if I don't velcro the straps on the back just right, I'll experience some slippage.  Another thing to keep in mind is that this mask makes you seem far more intimidating than you really are. No one can see your gorgeous smile under all that breathable, heat-concealing, black fabric.
