    • RIDING TO WORK: BIKE COMMUTING ISN’T PRETTY, BUT IT SURE IS EFFECTIVE!

      Submitted by 303cycling on August 10th, 2018

            • Look out for Lookout Speed Bumps!

              Submitted by 303cycling on September 6th, 2017

                    Submitted by 303cycling on September 9th, 2014

                    I’ve had three major realizations over my very short time as a “bike racer”.

                    I’m not very motivated by “winning”. I like to race for fun (this came as no surprise).
                    There aren’t enough women out there who race (for fun or otherwise).
