Bike Snob NYC 05. September, 16:39 Uhr

We're five days into September, the Bike Forecast is operational once again, my Outside column never stopped, and here I am typing hand-curated content into this here online wordhole.Having said all that, the first person to point out that #crossiscoming gets a shot right to whatever their particular genitalway is:(Some douchebag taking a shot to whatever particular genitalway he has.)Speaking...

Firstly, I'd like to thank the New York Cycling Club for inviting me to speak at their monthly membership meeting last night:Which took place at a pub in Times Square:Not only did I meet a lot of great people, but I also got two (2) beers out of it--plus an entire plate of food!Hey, when you're a bike blogger you've got to learn how to live hand to mouth, and I'm not above ranting for my...

Okay, so come Tuesday I'll finally be firing up this whole bike-blogging media machine again, at which point the whole rickety contraption will start sputtering to life in a cloud of putrid black smoke.  In the meantime, however, here's my latest column for Outside, which is all about why short rides are awesome:Yes, in case you didn't know, long rides are totally déclassé should be consigned...

There I was, all ready to curate an ample serving of the day's mediocrity, when I got a call from the Apple factory informing me that my littlest kiddie is sick:(Not my kid.  When my kid's sick he gets really pissed off and goes for your nuts.)That meant I had to go pick him up, because a sick kid can't properly assemble the new iPhone X and it's a real drain on productivity.Worst part is they...

At some point in the not-too-distant future I suspect Outside will be publishing my latest bloviation, and once they do that you can be sure I'll be back here to rub it in your face.In the meantime, I return to you from a morning road ride in which I was, for the first time in my life, the victim of Fred Rage: No, there wasn't any actual physical "violence," as you see above, nor did he throw...

Bike Snob NYC 07. September, 18:21 Uhr

Sorry if I've been less than punctual, but it's been a hectic week what with getting the kids back to school.  (I've got seventeen (17) children in eighteen (18) different schools, so you can only imagine how complicated that is.)  Also, after ten (10) years of bicycle blogging I recently decided I've transcended punctuality and can do whatever whenever, so I take it back and am not sorry at...

Further to yesterday's post, in which I mentioned the Freds who went out for hurricane repeats:A commenter commented thusly:Bob said...The bunny hopping Fred in Ukraine kit is apparently Lucas Brunelle.September 12, 2017 at 6:47 AM"Ha ha," I thought, until I looked into it, and guess what?Come ride with us on Sunday on the beach for the tailwind of your life #miamisucksdontcome #rushracingteam...

Great news!  Or, if you're not a fan of pro cycling, news!  Yes, after a lengthy sponsor hunt that included a crowdfunding campaign, Cannondale-Drapac have finally found a new co-sponsor:Edward Hult, CEO North America at EF Education First commented: “We are honoured to begin working alongside Slipstream Sports, Cannondale, Drapac, and all of the wonderful partners at Slipstream Sports to keep...

So say the Giro d'Italia organizers, who will run three stages in Israel in 2018:The Giro d’Italia cycling race will begin in Israel next year, marking the first time any leg of the sport’s three Grand Tours will take place outside of Europe.Organisers said on Thursday that details of the exact route of the three stages to be held in Israel will be announced next week, with Italian and Israeli...

***Two things: 1) Read the Bike Forecast; B) Register for the NYC Century; 3) That's it, I said only two things, remember?***Remember back in the hindquarters of the Dachshund of Time:When athletes knew how to dress?Pugilists wore tights and sashes and didn't skimp on the hair cream:Swimmers wore stripey "prison chic" unitards:And cyclists dressed like Waldo from "Where's Waldo?"Well you'll be...

Bike Snob NYC 18. September, 16:21 Uhr

Cycling: it's the closest you can get to the sensation of flight without leaving the ground.  (Not counting the inhalation of spray-on deodorant through a bath towel, of course.)  Whether you're riding to work, riding to the store, or just riding for no reason at all, you feel like you're miles above the ground, and once you're seduced by the kinetics of riding a bike you need it to feed your...

Further to Monday's post, here's a fun one:I like @EmotionalHangs but was blown away by De Rosa arguing that he has the right to do violence to cyclists. https://t.co/V5JobGbixS— Aaron Naparstek (@Naparstek) September 18, 2017As we all know, every time a motorist parks a car they're doing something monumentally important.  Indeed, it's a monumental engineering feat as significant as the Moon...

Bike Snob NYC 15. September, 18:37 Uhr

It's Friday, and as usual my latest Outside column is gestating inside whatever magic machine they have that puts it onto the Internet.  Rest assured that as soon as it's rendered I will duly flog it here.  So watch this space:(When I snap my fingers you will wake up thinking you are Mario Cipollini.)In the meantime, I'd like to apologize for my extremely poor performance on this morning's...

Not to be THAT GUY, but Jason Gay of the Wall Street Journal, who not only officially revealed my identity to an indifferent world back in 2010 but also had me on his podcast not too long ago was totally THAT GUY yesterday:not to be THAT GUY but if you're gonna wear a smart jacket and take calls, wear a helmet. helmet truthers dont @ me. https://t.co/MBTIjFgLLN— Jason Gay (@jasongay) March 16,...

I have good news and bad news.The bad news is that if you're a fan of this blog I have to work on a project today, so there won't be a post today:Although this is technically a post, so instead let's just say there won't be a comprehensive update today:Okay, so what's the good news?  Well, if you're not a fan of this blog, then the good news is that there won't be a post today: See that?  Every...

Well, the snowstorm yesterday wasn't quite what they anticipated, but it did give the DOT an opportunity to show off its bike lane-clearing prowess:Cmsr Trottenberg tries out one of our new bobcats with broom attachment - perfect for clearing the #ManhattanBridge #bikenyc path! #stella pic.twitter.com/EQVJMMbR8r— NYC DOT (@NYC_DOT) March 14, 2017 Yes, the city continues to add bike lanes:Now...

Hello!I've been away so long I can hardley remmmember how to tipe or speal.  Nevertheless I'm going to attempt to hold it together for long enough to tell you that my new Outside column is up and available FOR FREE (!) on the World Wide Worldwideweb:Not only is it a particularly good one*, but it's also based on actual firsthand experience:So there you go.Okay, that's enough outta me, now back...

Not sure if you've heard, but apparently there are these things called "fat bikes" in quotes:PORTLAND, Me. — Gone are the days when cyclists had to put their bikes away for the winter. These days, hard-core riders are staying outdoors year round thanks to “fat bikes” that allow them to conquer winter's worst instead of staying indoors on a stationary bike.Yes, according to the Associated Press...

They say you haven't truly made it until you're featured in a Manhattan window display:They also say you're officially a cultural icon if that display rotates:Done, and done.Anyway, after standing in the snow and crying tears of joy for 20 minutes I made straight for the nearest bicycle:And as I wiped off the saddle with the sleeve of my custom-tailored Inspector Gadget jacket I decided that...

I realize that yesterday I said I wasn't going to cover pro cycling, but I'll make an exception for component failure porn of this caliber any day:Wheel failure for Gianni Moscon of @TeamSky at #tirrenoadriatico pic.twitter.com/5GuaYyd4ss— Trevor Ward (@willwrite4cake) March 8, 2017Supposedly the collapse came after an encounter with a pothole, and Shimano is going to get to the bottom of it:In...

Let's delve into the mail bag, shall we?First of all, further to yesterday's post:ubercurmudgeon said...Vaccines are not like helmets. Vaccines are like the cycle safety training you get at school (or used to, depending on where you live.) It is training for your immune system to be able to cope with diseases, just like training kids to cope with motorists or adverse conditions. And if nearly...

Bike Snob NYC 07. März, 15:22 Uhr

I suppose the moment I realized I'd given up on life was when I found myself watching Dutch bicycle rush hour porn: The above clip--a particularly perverse example of the genre in which throngs of cyclists somehow manage to coexist with both pedestrians and each-other despite a flagrant lack of both traffic controls and helmets--holds particular significance for me.  See, when I visited...

The 1970s: (I like how at the end she just drops the bike like, "Fuck this.")Besides voluminous hair and wobbly rides over covered bridges, this decade also gave us the musical stylings of Kiss, and while it may have taken over 40 years now you can finally own the Kiss-branded crabon time trial bike and matching wheelset of your dreams:(Via BikePortland)The carbon-fiber KISS road bike allows...

Bike Snob NYC 15. August, 17:46 Uhr

Remember how yesterday when I announced my end-of-summer break I said I'd let you know if another media outlet published some of my genius?Well another media outlet has published some of my genius:I must say I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.When the hell is this city gonna make me the Bike Czar already?!?Also, while I'm here, in today's Bike Forecast I mentioned this story:But what I...

Bike Snob NYC 14. August, 18:28 Uhr

I am an extremely humble individual.At the same time, it would be disingenuous of me to pretend that I'm not the world's greatest living cycling writer.Yeah, relax there, Sammy, I said living writer.And yes, I do consider Mark Twain a cycling writer, since he wrote probably the most entertaining essay ever written on the subject before the safety bicycle was even invented.Alas, if only he'd had...

Bike Snob NYC 03. März, 19:46 Uhr

Well yesterday's mixed-terrain ramble was so rewarding (for me) that today I decided to treat myself to another one:Because I deserve it:It's chilling to think that in many households during that era the only thing preventing murder-suicide was a bar of soap.Anyway, in keeping with my current ethos I once again rode a cheap bike while wearing street clothes, only this time instead of the Surly...
