Style Check: Club Ride Deer Abby Jersey

Club Ride made their name with casual but functional pieces that buck tradition. You don’t have to resemble a stuffed sausage on the trail, and the world is better for it. For 2015 they’ve expanded their line with additional looks that have a cut and silhouette more along the lines of traditional riding garb, but […]

Style Check: DHaRCO Riding Kit

I’m always on the lookout for hip new brands, so when I heard about DHaRCO out of Austrailia, I had to reach out to get more info on their line. I first discovered the brand when they appeared in my Instagram feed worn by a mountain biker in Australia. (she is also featured on their website) […]

Review: Club Ride Freedom Short

Style Check: Shredly Louise MTB Knickers

I discovered Shredly earlier this year (click here for my previous post) and am continuously impressed by how comfortable, durable and flattering these shorts are. (It’s true, you don’t have to look like a tomboy, or worse, a small guy when riding your bike!) In a market that doesn’t appear to listen to women, Shredly has […]

Ditching the Hydration Pack: What’s Your Every Ride Carry?

Hydration packs work extremely well for storing water and supplies needed for epic adventures, but for rides of shorter duration they are often overkill. Last year I returned to my roots and installed a bottle cage on my bike and left my pack at home. Rediscovering the freedom of riding sans pack has really enriched my regular riding experience. […]

Style Check: Shredly MTB Kit

It’s hard finding trail riding gear that flatters the female form, and I’m always on the lookout for new brands that “get it.” Over the Christmas holiday, Jason and I met up with Sue and Bill from Ashland Mountain Adventures for a fun weekend of riding in San Luis Obispo. Sue was wearing a really […]

Old Meets New in Classic styles — Kitsbow & Giro New Road @Sea Otter 2013

While some of the offerings from these manufacturers won’t appeal to everyone, those that appreciate attention to detail and classic lines (with the income to participate) are sure to pause and take notice. Merino wool has seen a resurgence in performance cycling wear for its moisture wicking qualities as well as comfort, and unlike many synthetics […]
