WOW! What a week here at Ride Bikes Radio! Let’s start off with some updates from the Strava club where 68 of you clocked over 2400 miles this week! Nicely done! Also, be sure to check out the conversations happening over there, inluding the latest one about chain maintenance. Brian lays down some good rules to follow for us about this too and I have a few tips (links below) for kit and snacks.
But, the big reason we are talking today is because Brian rode a double century! That’s more than 200 miles (or 322km) and he did that in a single day! He gave us a recap of his experience that I think you guys are going to enjoy listening too. And you know we are going to be talking more about this in upcoming shows for those of you that are looking to get into riding some larger miles!
Finally, check out album art! That’s Ray’s rig, with his ride leaned on it. Check out the post on Facebook for more details and be amazed that he can still manage 70 miles in a week!
New show, post 4th of July here in the states and we get right to it with tips on getting your poutine fix in the US. Then, Brian catches us up on his bike drama of late and his ongoing preparations for the upcoming Seattle to Portland ride. A quick update to the Strava Club, where you guys and gals are throwing down huge miles. HUGE!!! Keep it going gang!
Brian gives us a quick update on the Tour and I ask about riding in a group and share a story from last weekend. A short show this week, but still a lot of show in there for you guys.
We are back, finally, with a new show for you fine ladies and gentlemen. It’s been pretty hectic over here, hence the delay.
Starting off with a look at the Strava club, which is a very strong group! To make the top 10, you need to be riding over 115 miles per week! HOLY CATS!!! Plus, Brian tells us about his upcoming crazy rides. He is going to ride the STP in 1 day (!!!) and the RSVP. If you are planning on riding either of these, be sure to let us know, Brian will need someone to share the crazy with!
An update on where you guys are coming from to listen to the show and I’m proud to say, now that we have completed our first lap around the sun, we are, officially, world famous! Thank you! We finish with Brian giving us some tips on changing a tire because I really suck at it, getting schooled by dudes on recumbant bikes and a beer update.
We will be back on schedule. Again, thank you for your patience!
Let’s talk about riding bikes gang! But first, the weather where Seattle just finished seeing 3 whole days of sun shine. 3 DAYS GUYS!!! Moving on to Arizona storm watch and sadness for those of you that are flooded or snowed in. This week, we ride for you! Besides that, we talk about the news stories listed below, Brian’s latest podium finish and his new hate for Chevy S-10 pickups.
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!
Ride Bikes Radio #22: Guaranteed or Your Money Back
Apologies for the lack of a show last week, but I am pretty sure we have totally made up for that this week! Some talk about the Strava Club, some news items and Brian talks me out of buying a bike from Bikes Direct.
Big show this week gang! Brian updates us on his racing and lets us know how to get started racing. I attended a huge beer event and have realized it’s time to upgrade one of my bikes, plus a few stories.
Plus a few more listener shout-outs. If you have left a review for us on iTunes recently, THANK YOU! And to those of you that aren’t able to, no worries. It is the thought that counts. We really appreciate it!
This week’s show art brought to you by our man Steve in Chicago, to continue the winter theme. Don’t forget, if you want your ride featured, ‘@’ reply us on Twitter or Instagram (@ridebikesradio at both) or upload it to our Facebook page. It’s not a competition, anyone that sends over an image will get featured at some point!
