DREAM GEAR: CYCLING IN MALLORCA.
Gear that “made the ride” while on the bike vacation of a lifetime. The epic sights were without question the best part of the ride – but coming in at a close second? My shorts.

ON A ROLL…ER.
Trying out rollers for winter training. We all know that nothing can beat the real deal – tailwinds, long climbs, and the wind in our hair – but to get the most out of the riding season we have to put in a bit of winter training. Once you decide that riding during the off […]

LET’S GET COMFORTABLE.
My Journey to Saddle Comfort. I can vividly remember my very first rides in 1999. I had signed up to train and ride 100 miles in Lake Tahoe, and my saddle pain seemed insurmountable. Finally, I looked at my coach and said, “I can’t do this, the pain is too intense.” He looked back at me […]

Bikes for Women: Looks can be deceiving
When I first started building bicycles for women some 25 years ago, it took only a quick glance at a man and a woman of the same height to see that her legs were longer than his. Her shorter torso was clearly the reason why she felt “stretched out” on a bike and had to […]
Where Have All the Women’s Bikes Gone?
Based on a quick review of bike manufacturers’ websites, women’s bikes don’t seem to have gone anywhere, but a little probing shows the industry might to be in retrograde mode. Having made so much progress in the last 25 years, it would be a shame to lose sight of the goal: bountiful offerings for all […]
