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!
This week’s show image brought to you by RBR Listener Danyell! If you want to be featured, it’s super simple, just ‘@’ reply us on Twitter or Instagram (we are @ridebikesradio on both) or upload it to the Facebook page. It’s not a competition, everyone that sends us a photo has a chance of having it featured!
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!
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!
Last show for 2016 here gang and we do go long making sure that it counts! A few pretty cool news stories, Brian laments about riding the trainer and we spend some quality time talking about recent beers.
Plus, an update from our most recent doctor visits. Let’s just say that both Brian and I are throwing down some kick ass numbers that show what a difference a few changes make.
Oh yea, for the first time in a few shows, we actually have some beer to talk about!
Thanks to Richard for tagging us on Instagram. That got him featured (again) as this weeks show image. We would love to feature you too and it’s super simple. Just upload an image of your ride to our Facebook page or do an @ reply to us on Instagram or Twitter and you could be next! Remember gang, it’s not a competition, just looking for cool bikes to feature!
Plus Brian got to spend some time with his pals at Specialized in Northern California and I helped with someone’s first 10 mile bike ride!
Thanks to James for this week’s image! You can have a photo of bicycle featured as our show art as well and it’s super simple to do! Just upload it to our Facebook page or give us an ‘@’ reply on Twitter or Instagram to get a shot. Remember gang, it’s not a competition, just looking for cool images to share with everyone!
You guys are pretty awesome! How awesome? Listen in to find out. Cool Strava stuff, rad shares and amazing feedback that you guys are sending in. It’s very awesome! Speaking of listener stuff, this week’s show image brought to you by Mark Lee with his old school El Camino (i.e. cargo bike). Like a mix between a radio flyer and a tricycle. So rad!
Thanks for listening gang! A quick note that Brian is out of town again, so we will not be recording a show this week. He will be returning with some great stuff that I know you guys are going to love!
Finally back after the HQ relocation to record a new Ride Bikes Radio episode for you guys! You can tell we have been missing in action for a while since we do go a bit longer than normal and cover a bit more news than normal, but it’s all great stuff!
Thanks to Richard for this week’s image! Remember gang, we want to see your rides too and it’s easy to show those off. Just tag us on Instagram or Twitter or upload it to our Facebook page. If you have done that already, watch for us to get back on track next week! Oh, and the Bieber hair? Check out the Facebook page!
Lots of video for you guys this week. You really should follow along on the Facebook page. If you did, you would have seen the back-to-school deal that RoadID was having (I got mine!). You also would have seen all of the videos that we talked about.
Also, Dept. of Corrections via listener Bud, with a great beer suggestion! And this week’s show image courtesy Richard Wezensky for sharing photos of his El Camino with us on the Ride Bikes Radio IG. Remember gang, tag us with the @ sign at Twitter or Instagram or upload directly to Facebook. Don’t hashtag (#) us because we won’t see it! And, keep sharing photos of your rides and lock fail photos!
And Brian schools us on seat posts and trouble shooting those crazy noises that are coming from our bikes. Another great show for you guys and gals. Thanks for listening!
