We can’t help but be biased towards completely human powered bicycles at Terry, but we look on the growth of ebikes as a great thing – it brings the benefits of cycling and bicycles into new realms, and to new populations, meaning more healthful, less polluting transportation in more places. And, this > Sagan vs. […]

Perfect For a Fall Cycling Gear Test – A Day of Cool Weather Riding with a Trio of Terry Cycling Tops.

If you ride in urban areas you already know about the number one threat to cyclists on city streets – dooring: the all too common collision when a driver opens their door without looking, into the path of a cyclist. The Dutch Reach is a simple solution that has proven very effective in places where it is used. As cyclists we can start using the Dutch Reach immediately, and teach it to all the drivers we know.
Here at Terry headquarters in Vermont we are bracing for the cold, cold weather to come, knowing that in a few short weeks only the very hardiest among us will still be cycling outdoors. That’s where indoor cycling comes in – perfect for staying in shape during the off-season, enjoying the physical and mental benefits of cycling without having to deal with winter roads and freezing temps.
Naturally, we have plenty of Terry pieces among our favorite indoor cycling clothes. If you are looking to add spinning or indoor cycling to your own workout program, here are some great tips and recommendations to help you get started.
Ready to add a pop of color to your drawer full of black lycra? Just in time to merge with the colors of Autumn, the Psychlo tight has arrived. With a burst of color on the lower legs, this tight is sure to stand out against brilliant fall foliage.
More important, recent research shows that the most effective place for bright and reflective fabrics for cyclists is on the lower legs and feet. The pattern of motion on moving parts of the body grabs motorists’ attention far more effectively than static or bike mounted brights or reflectors.
Not many extreme performance records are held by women, but as of Sept 16, 2018, the unofficial title of world’s fastest cyclist belongs to a woman – 45 year old mom of three, Denise Mueller-Koronek. She went for a bike ride in Utah, and topped out around the take-off speed of a Boeing 747 – setting the Paced Bicycle Land Speed Record at 183.9 mph.
It was no ordinary ride, as you might imagine, and Mueller-Koronek joined a very exclusive club with this feat. Since “Mile-a-Minute Murphy” set the bar at 60 mph in 1899, riding behind a locomotive, only 11 people have set new marks for the record. That hints at the difficulties involved: not only the physical effort required, but the organization and infrastructure needed to prepare and stage an attempt.
