        Submitted by 303cycling on February 28th, 2016

        As I’m writing this, the event ended just a few hours ago and I’m still reeling in excitement that I was able to witness a world record being set at the US Olympic Training Center Velodrome in Colorado Springs! On January 22nd, 2016, Bridie O’Donnell rode 46.882km in Adelaide, Australia to set what was the record. On February 27, 2016, Evelyn Stevens set out to smash that. Read more

                  • Garage Overhaul: How to best store bikes & gear

                    Submitted by 303cycling on February 19th, 2016

                    This past fall we moved our family of seven – two driving, skiing, debris-trailing teenagers; three large 80-pound, kibbel-eating-and-forever-pooping dogs; “never-throw-anything-away” fix-it-handyman husband; and me – multisport enthusiast with n+1 bikes, seeking order and an indoor parking spot.

But I knew I couldn’t do it alone.

                      And You May Ask Yourself, How Did I Get Here?
                      By Scott Downes

                      The first time I remember being on a bike was in the driveway of the house where I grew up, on a winding street off a county road a few miles outside of that Indiana town. A simple, silver-colored Huffy with red grips, I wobbled at first, uneasy with the balance and pedal action. There were stops and starts and spills, for sure. Soon enough though, it was another appendage that brought seemingly endless freedom… Read more
