The Bakery: Don’t Be a Dick, Talk to the Bun Guy.

01.17.2013 //

I’ve chatted with strangers on climbs and met lifelong friends at the dirt jumps…. I can’t see much excuse to ignore fellow riders. Simple trail etiquette, like yelling out “there are three more”, “on your left”, or “have a good ride” is all that’s needed to connect with people, and more importantly, to not be a dick.

The Bakery: I’ve Found Religion

The Bakery: For the Love of Independent Bike Shops

12.13.2012 //

My local bike shop is the kind of place where everyone knows your name, or some variation of it. They hassle you and high-five you. They give you hugs and lectures about not taking better care of your ride. They are family.

Butcher Paper: Back in the Saddle

11.06.2012 //

I’ve been off the bike more times than I want to remember and for more reasons than I care to admit. Winters, hurricanes, a couple of douchebag discs
in my back and a general propensity for laziness have all taken their toll on my riding. Throw in the occasional injury and pregnancy, and I’ve been benched enough times to know that getting back on the bike is never quick. Or easy. Or painless.
