    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!

  • A Sunday in Hell: Paris-Roubaix

    If you're still pattering about your apartment, wondering if you should go outside...DON'T WATCH THIS. Go ride your bike, there's some daylight left. And watch this later.

    The Paris-Roubaix is coming up on April 12th.


  • Track World Cup in Cali, Colombia

    The UCI Track Cycling World Cup is happening this weekend in Cali, Colombia!

    Racing starts tonight. We are rooting for Missy Erickson of Team USA Cycling. Erickson is the current U.S. Sprint & Keirin Elite National Champion and a 5-time National Champion.

    Track cycling is so much fun to watch! We feel the suspense and thrill of it comes across even in video. In particular, check out the team sprints.

    Check out this clip from one of Erickson's training sessions:

    Unfortunately, live coverage of the races doesn't start till Sunday (4-7pm) on the UCI channel on YouTube, but you can follow on Instagram & Twitter: @TrackWCupCali.

  • "I Am Marianne Vos"

    Loved this interview with Marianne Vos in BICYCLING magazine.
    "B: Do you like to train with music? 
    MV: I don't like it too much. You're not really into the normal sound of riding your bike and the birds and the trees and the wind. You should listen to that sometimes, too. 
    I sing in the bunch. I can imagine that's pretty annoying. The other riders don't like it. I pass other riders or a teammate, and it's like, It can only be you. Always singing on the climb. Please do it on the descent, and not on the climb."
