Paris-Roubaix 2014

Published on April 10, 2014 by in News

Fabian Cancellara in the 2014 E3 Harelbeke

The 2014 edition of Paris-Roubaix, arguably one of the most exciting and hardest one day road races in the world, takes place this Sunday. Last year’s race saw a win for Trek Factory Racing’s Fabian Cancellara aboard his Trek Domane. Coming off of an impressive win at the Tour of Flanders last weekend, Cancellara is set for a repeat victory this Sunday. Below are some websites and twitter profiles that we recommend you follow to stay up to date.

Saturday morning trail rides with Judy!

Published on April 6, 2014 by in News
Walt’s Saturday morning trail rides with Judy will resume on April 19, weather permitting.  These are “entry level rides” geared towards folks who want to start riding regularly but would like a little initial support.  We leave Walt’s at 9 am on Saturday mornings, take the road over to Flat Branch Park and go to the MKT from there–our end destination is Hindman’s Junction near McBaine although, depending on the group and ability levels, we sometimes do the road loop in McBaine around to the old Burr Oak tree.  The mileage for the basic route is about 22 miles, but is easily tailored to fit the ability levels of novice riders who need shorter mileage initially.  Helmets are required, and cyclists are encouraged to carry plenty of water.  Judy’s job is to make sure all participants safely to Walt’s or their drop off destination.  Cyclists of all levels are welcome to join us and often do.  If you think you would be interested in joining us, please email Judy at JudyKnudy@aol.com and request to be put on the updated email list–you will then receive a weekly email announcement (or cancellation if she’s out of town and doesn’t have a substitute) and also last minute weather cancellations.  We do not ride if it is raining, if conditions are too wet on the trails, or if the weather is threatening.  Hope you will join us!!!

One of my favorite events that I’ve never attended, the North American Handmade Bicycle Show (NAHBS) is taking place this weekend in Charlotte, NC. The photos and videos that come out of NAHBS are drool worthy visuals of beautiful handmade, custom painted bikes in all shapes and sizes. I highly recommend that you keep an eye on a few key websites to stay up to date as the show progresses. Here’s a couple that I’d bookmark if I were you:
