Here are the photos I took when I wasn’t riding during the Red Bull Ride + Style in San Francisco. You can find more on my Flickr. I also just want to take this time to give a huge thanks to Red Bull and Aaron for putting on this event. It was awesome, and I had so much fun! I especially want to say thanks to Emma for being so supportive of me and my riding. You are the absolute best, and I seriously appreciate everything you’ve done for me!

This past weekend’s Red Bull Ride + Style was even more awesome than it was promised to be. The closed course crit races were intense, and the freestyle course saw a lot of bangers. Here are a few pictures Keith took during the event. You can find more here. [Read more →]

This Saturday, March 26th brings the fourth annual Red Hook Criterium, and I couldn’t be more excited to finally see it! The race takes place in the mainly-deserted, post-industrial neighborhood (read: horribly neglected streets) of Red Hook, Brooklyn, and unlike most [alleycat] races in the city, it begins at 11:00PM. A little bit about the Crit, from their website:
Track bikes are mandatory and the field consists of elite level roadies, bike messengers, and urban cyclists. The race distance is 20 laps around a .75 mile circuit which features several hairpin turns, a technical chicane, a cobblestone stretch, and a sprint finish.
According to the Red Hook Crit Twitter, they’ve expanded the registration to include 85 riders so far, with 7 open spots for registration still available. Cyclists from all over the world are slated to compete, and the prize list is impressive to say the very least. Fingers crossed for a few female competitors!
Cinelli’s blog featured an in-depth interview with David Trimble (founder and organizer of the race) back in February. If you’re at all curious about the event–or can’t make it on Saturday–I’d suggest popping over there for a quick read. In my own (admittedly limited) race experience, it looks like an extremely unique event, and I can’t wait to watch.
There’s also a group ride down to Red Hook prior to the race, being organized by Mike Spriggs of Gage+DeSoto (who also happen to be exclusively carrying this sweet Red Hook Crit t-shirt). For more details on the group ride, check out Gage+DeSoto’s entry here.
I’ll be there cheering along and taking tons of photos, if you come out and spot me on the Lurker, feel free to say hello!

March has been off to a brilliant start, with a bike birthday party and time trial in the same weekend!
Awesome cycle girls Becky and Louise hosted a fun bike-love celebration for their March birthdays. Despite the rainy weather, a heap of people participated in an adventurous ride to Kakaako waterfront park for a firedance by Louise (with a couple of first-time fire dancers trying their stuff out as well) and then a ride to Cycle Manoa for a pinata smashing and dance party!

There was a even a pool set up in the bike warehouse
Thanks for the super amazing party for 2 awesommmeee cycle girls!
Part 2 of the weekend was the time trial.. a bit more serious (well, sort of……)
The time trial was held at Mokuleia on the North-Western shore of Oahu with a 12.4 mile route. The organizers created a special fixed-gear category, which inspired a rambunctious crew of riders to participate.
A summary of the “seriousness” of the time trial
1. Ted Shred Stops
2. Time trial on riser bars + a whip skid
3. Eilif completing the entire 12 mile time trial by wheelie, shirtless and in terrific spirits
4. The helmet aero-fications by speedo swim cap
5. The helmet aero-fications by dinosaur shower cap
6. New rider Sabrina’s completion of the time trial as the only female participant, complete with riser bars, a hello kitty backpack and a backwards helmet that none of us caught!
All the participants with the head organizer that created the fixed gear category, David Lum
And congrats to the fixed-gear winners!
All in all, an awesome bike weekend in Hawaii!

Every February Toronto cyclists gather at the frozen Dufferin Grove Ice Rink for our annual Icycle Race. Pros spend weeks drilling tiny little screws into their tires to grip on the frozen slippery surface.
There are categories for men, women, and “rubber” (no studs).
a very supportive (cold) crowd packs the boxes as well as gathers around the edges of the rink.
you usually put more screws on the left side of your tire for cornering like this:
Celeste on her unicycle won the rubber race. it’s always so entertaining with non-stop wipe outs!
