Trail Ramblings: Coming Up: Bike Safety 101.

Here is a teaser, a sort of horror version of a bike safety psa from 1963. Public sensibilities were different, but most of the safety rules are the same. View it at https://vimeo.com/133564723 (slightly better quality?), or on YouTube as One got fat. Only one of the nine riders makes it to their destination in this 15 minute film, due to disregarding traffic and safety rules. What are the most dangerous or annoying habits you’ve […]

Trail Ramblings: It’s Bike To Work Week!

There was never a finer day to bike to work than today, so I hope you got to do it. I know some people have difficulties with family transportation schedules, etc. but I hope you are able to bike to work this week. I’m always amazed by the number of people who say they can’t ride to work because they would arrive looking sweaty and their workplace has no showers. There are ways around this. […]

Trail Ramblings: Sharing The Trails.

Today I had a conversation with another would-be cyclist, who unlike last week’s rider, has a bike but lacks the confidence to take off and start riding. Growing up in the country, she didn’t take to riding gravel roads as a child (unlike yours truly), so she never rode enough to get good at it. Apparently she didn’t ride as a college student (the proving ground of many future commuters), so she remains frozen at […]

Trail Ramblings: Bringing Up New Riders

Recently I met a soon-to-be new rider who was very excited about having a bike built up that she is expecting to ride for commuting and group rides. I think she is representative of the new riders coming up that sense the energy currently being created around cycling in Lincoln. Whether we realize it or not, all of us who ride provide the examples, and the blueprint for new riders. When we started out, we […]

Trail Ramblings: The Cycling Calendar Is Already Busy.

As the days get longer, the races and rides are already piling up. The Nacho rides begin May 7, though the trail and temperatures are fine now. People are even bike packing to area lakes already. Last week was mountain bike racing and gravel grinding. Before that was road racing and a new event called Trash Time Trials, which sounds pretty great. It’s part of the RRR (Randy’s Ritual Ride) Gravel Series. It’s too late […]
