Friday Link Love: Long Ride Edition

Happy Friday, everyone. We’ve made it through another week. Go team. It’s been quite a while since I did a Friday Link Love post, but this week I’m bringing it back. Without further ado, here are some of the good things I’ve been reading of late. Tour Divide While I […]

Cupcake Ramblin’ with Sol and BicycleSPACE

BicycleSPACE, one of D.C.’s local bike shops, has done an excellent job of building community through their group rides. Felkerino and I have attended a few of their evening social rides in the past and, while they were literally not my speed in terms of the pace with which they […]

Freedom!: Ultrarunnergirl on #BikeDC Speaks

Kirstin, aka Ultrarunnergirl, is one of the many great people I’ve met through #FridayCoffeeClub (which you should think about attending, if you do not already). As her blog suggests, Kirstin is an ultrarunner as well as a cyclist, and is one of few people I know who also run commutes […]

Don’t Overthink It: #BikeDC Speaks to Joan O.

Colorado High Country 1200K Photos

Hard for me to believe that the Colorado High Country 1200K is now in the books. Felkerino and I spent the last six months working toward this event, and suddenly it’s back to business as usual. No 1200K on the horizon, just the regular routine. To keep the post-event blues […]

And We Made It: High Country 1200k

Friends, Felkerino and I officially finished the High Country 1200K yesterday in just under 83 hours. To give you a brief summary (full report and pics later), we had an incredibly good ride. Our bodies held up well, weather was pleasant, and we spent lots of miles chatting and pedaling […]

And We’re Off: High Country 1200K

Felkerino (@dailyrandonneur) and I (@gypsybug) will post updates of our adventure via Twitter, using the hash tag #hc1200. Fellow DC Randonneur Bill (@bicyclic) is riding, too, […]

Cupcake Commuting: (Hot as) Hello Cupcake Edition

This past week, Felkerino and I ventured out with his daughter to do some cupcake commuting. Destination: Hello Cupcake on Capitol Hill. Sheesh, was it hot. Temperatures hovered around 100 degrees and bright sun abounded. Curious to see how cupcakes would fare in the Hello Cupcake to-go box, we each […]

#BikeDC Speaks to Lisa S.: Growing Up as a Cyclist

What better way to send us into the 4th of July holiday than with another edition of BikeDC Speaks? This week features Lisa S., who I know through randonneuring and Friday Coffee Club, our weekly bike commuter gathering at Swings. Lisa also writes an engaging blog, Rambling Rider, about her […]
