Why yes, I am wearing my bicycle pants to the office…and hiking…and camping…A review of Bluff Works adventure-ready pants

You know those guys who go a year without breaking a sweat? You’ve seen them walking, bellies a swingin’, from one boring meeting to the next in some sprawling city where people get lost in thoughts about whether there is more to life than this.

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.

My three favorite topics to bring [...]

I like SPD clipless pedals, but I’ve always hated the look of the majority of the SPD-compatible shoes and the fact that most of the shoes aren’t really made for walking. Instead they just ENABLE you dismount and walk around without the pedal cleats clacking against the floor; setting up a racket like you’re auditioning for [...]

Breeze vs. Bloomers: Review of the Bikie Girl BGB Trio

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 [...]
