After coming so close to being canceled in 2020, the difficulties the riders had preparing and achieving form during lockdowns, then the restrictions and compromises of last year’s Tour, the 2021 edition seems to be celebrating almost a pre-pandemic level of freedom and return to normality. What a relief! It’s shaping up to be a dramatic and compelling race once again. Here’s what to look out for in this year’s TDF…

A helmet can only protect your head, or that of your child, if it’s fitted correctly.
I’m always happy to see people on the bike paths and lanes where I live wear bike helmets, but I’m often surprised how many don’t have them adjusted correctly. Here are the tips you need to know to be absolutely sure your helmet – or your child’s – is able to do its job of protecting you in a crash.
It’s nice to have something you thought all along confirmed by research: A Dutch study found that cyclists live longer than others, and endure fewer health complications as they age.

Whatever length the race, […]
Cycling through a year of pandemic.
We’re here. We’ve still got two wheels. We learned how to find joy and freedom on our bikes during a wild ride called 2020. The year brought us together as a planet in ways that we will never forget. For me the metaphor of climbing a gap applies: an uphill battle, a sweet ride down.

Spring is in the air; you can feel the sun is getting stronger and the days are getting longer. Covid-19 made last year so difficult with the future so uncertain, but one thing is for certain… riding your bike will make you feel better. Get the wind blowing in your face and feel the sun upon your skin. Time to get out of the house and get some fresh air.
The best way to get your mind thinking forward is to start getting your equipment checked, updated if needed, and ready for the roads and trails.

The 2020 Tour de France is under way!
Even the start of this year’s race is an almost unexpected triumph. For a long time it wasn’t certain le Tour would be staged at all in 2020, and the race was still in doubt right up to the start.
The route promises an exciting mix of mass sprint finishes, days made for puncheurs who can climb multiple smaller hills then smash out a strong sprint, and showcases for pure climbers who can leave rivals behind on grueling ascents. The racing is expected to be faster and even more intense than usual, because of the very limited race calendar. In a typical year the teams would already have been battling it out for several months of stage races, one day classics, and the earlier grand tour, the Giro d’Italia. This year, legs are far fresher.
This may be one of the toughest Tour de France routes yet, according to riders who have reconnoitered it. From the spectator’s perspective, this is a Tour where the possibilities for advantages to be won and lost emerge early, and do not let up until the peloton arrives in Paris. It could be anyone’s race, and will be a nail biter to watch.
Summer’s coming on fast, time for cyclists to think about sun protection. Don’t grab the lotion just yet though – there are even better options for cyclists to protect themselves from the sun… I shudder to think of the sunburns I collected over long days of summer cycling, well before the link between UV exposure […]
Cycling is booming again, with a new set of circumstances that make cycling an obvious great answer to urgent problems, and a fun, wholly beneficial thing to do. This time people are pulling neglected bikes out for the first time in years, even decades, and emptying the racks in bike shops, all because of COVID-19. Cycling is a great alternative to crowded public transportation, gives people more space than busy sidewalks, and lets cabin-fevered people escape from isolation to get healthful exercise.
It seems more people are cycling now than ever before. If that’s you, welcome! We’re glad you’re here! Here are some resources to help you find your way as a newcomer to cycling…
