This week, we follow up on tradegy in Kalamazoo, if you have a few minutes, it’s a great story, really worth the read.
As the title says, this is the n00b show. Sure, we know you guys already know this stuff, but on the off chance you don’t, we offer up tips on getting started with longer rides and how to avoid the dreaded ‘bonking’. Plus, Brian gives us tips on a pre-flight check list for your bike and the kinds of things that you should carry with you in your seat bag. I don’t have one at this time, but that’s on my short list of things to get done. I’ll share my experience here.
Thanks again for all of the feedback and sharing your rides with us! Keep it up!
This weeks featured image is from listener @jenkman61. He tagged us on Instagram. Show us your ride and we might feature it for a future show!

Then on to bike safety, especially after the accident last week. Nobody likes to see stuff like this happening. You want to make sure you are following the rules of road and we have a few suggestions for lights and and a new radar system that Garmin has released.
Starting out with our first episode learning that Brian used to own a bike shop, our favorite apps to track our riding and, of course, beer.

Finally, links to our favorite bike mounts and other things can be found on the links page and check out the side bar to follow Brian and I on Untappd and all of your favorite social media spots!
