July 27, 2014: Ladies first on the Paris Champs-Elysées finishing circuit

Froome at the front of the peleton.

As the Tour de France V101 approaches, we’re really looking forward to seeing the pro women’s field on the Champs-Elysées finishing circuit the final Sunday in Paris. It’s a great way for the world’s biggest bike race to mark its entry into a second century of suffering. Many of the biggest stage races for men include at least one day of women’s racing — it’s nice to see the Tour get back in the game.

Twenty of the best teams are invited, bringing almost all the top athletes in the world; it’s sure to be a great show for the entire 13 circuits (90k) of racing. For those fans who are lucky enough to be in Paris that Sunday, the race should kick off around 12:30. If you’re “stuck” at home, at least in the U.S. you’ll still be able to watch it live on Universal Sports Network.

The Ides of March — get out of town!

What better place to escape March unpleasantness than a cycling-mad Caribbean island like Guadeloupe? There’s nothing like a sun-filled cycling vacation on the horizon to keep the workout motivation going for a few more weeks. And in the French West Indies, the good weather is guaranteed. The daily high is always in the low 80s, [...]

Caribbean Cycling: Getting Warmer in Guadeloupe

For cyclists in the less temperate zones of North America, reality is starting to set in. Winter is coming; not much you can do about it. Time to check the winter clothing stock, maybe replace those over-worn booties. Or fill in that glove “gap” with that pair you’ve always needed for the 38-45F temperature range [...]
