Dorcy Front and Rear Bicycle Lights – A Review

  Dorcy Hawkeye Bicycle Lighting Somewhere out there exists market research that identifies the primary purchasers and users of bicycle lighting. I couldn’t find that research after a five minute Google search but I’m too stressed out to look for it. As a graduate student in my final semester of school, I know how to [...]

It Even Has a Zipper-Tuck! Green Guru’s Clutch Saddle Bag

Former top pro mountain bike racer Dara Marks Marino now coaches cyclists and triathletes through TheMindfulAthlete.net. Most of her commuting these days is with a trail-a-bike.

In the 12 months that I’ve lived in piping hot Phoenix, the best rule of thumb I’ve learned for beating the very high summer time heat is to wear dresses and skirts. Nothing combats temperatures over 100 like the flutter of a skirt and a breeze running its fingers across my legs when I’m pedaling [...]

Beating the Heat (Instead of Myself) with a Dynamo Headlight

For people working regular business hours, it’s usually in the Fall and Winter when they need reliable bike headlights. The sun sets earlier, and daylight saving time kicks in in other parts of the world. In Tucson, I found myself commuting home after sunset even though it was the middle of the summer. Some days, around [...]
