Ride Bikes Radio 25: Our Other Favorite 4 Letter Word

We just dropped a Strava Beacon on your COTA Texas Apple Watch thanks to my Wahooagan Runkeeper app for that.

King of the Southwest, aka Don ‘don’t call me’ Burnside, and I, the man with the same inverted initials, busted out edition 25 of the Zen-like Ride Bikes Radio. We get hot and heavy about Strava’s lack of Beaconess on the Series 2 Apple Watch, Bike Flights and how they made my life easy for my trip to Austin. I had a chance to make some circles with our man George Hsu and of course we broach the subject of our other favorite four letter word, Beer. Do not miss this quarter century edition of RBR, you will cry your eyes out if you do.

Coming up, the Month of May is National Bike Month with the 19th being National Bike to work day. Who will be participating in that? Comments are open, let us know!

Don’t forget, if you want your photo featured as the album art for a show, it’s super simple! Either upload it to our Facebook page or do an ‘@’ reply to use at Twitter or Instagram and we will make that happen!

Listener shout-outs, schedule updates and other things about bicycles like we like to do! Add in some Strava shaming (we are just as guilty!) and a few other updates before talking about some stories.

Part 2 for the new cyclists among us, we remind you that you always need a helmet when you ride and investing in some kind of padded shorts are all you really need to get started. If you have a preferred style of kit, sound off in the comments to help the newbies out!

Ride Bikes Radio 18: Look Better Naked

Ride Bikes Radio 18: Look Better Naked

Hello 2017! Brian and I are back with some news, some shout-outs and some tips for the resolutioners that are maybe thinking about picking up cycling as their new get fit routine. Let’s get to the links!

If you are looking to get into riding bikes for exercise, Brian and I have a couple of suggestions to get you started.

Both of these have 8 speeds, a comfortable, upright, riding position and the flexibility to go from exercise to running errands or commuting. If you are looking for a starter bike, we think these are great! Next time, we will be discussing basic equipment and clothing needs (aka kit), so stay tuned!

This week’s show image courtesy of Brian, showing off his Surly Big Dummy! You can be featured here as well, just @ reply to Ride Bikes Radio on Twitter or Instagram, or upload an image to our Facebook page, and there is a really good chance you will be featured!
