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!
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!

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!
