SORT BY Relevancy
A group of Seattle Randonneurs decided to create an unofficial challenge to honor the memory of one of their own, Don Boothby, who passed away before he got a chance to complete a 300k ride every month of the year, Hence the Boothby Challenge was created.
4 riders completed it in 2014
Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. Participation in randonneuring events is part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie and perseverance are the hallmarks of randonneuring.
Sometimes in our fast paced world it’s difficult to imagine our communities of the past. Historian Rui Santos detailed an average trip by horse and carriage from Boston to Plymouth in the 1830s lasting some 10 hours. Fifty years later a new form of transportation would take center stage: the bicycle.
And it was during that time period between 1880 and 1900 that the intersection of race, athleticism and cycling came to mean new forms of freedom and expression.
Lorenz Finison’s remarkable new book, Boston’s Cycling Craze paints the landscape of how a host of visionaries took to the streets and byways … all for the glory of the bicycle. Black, White, Asian and Biracial…they are all in the book and all chronicled in detail during these pioneer years of cycling.
Come explore with us as we turn back the clocks to the golden age of bicycles during and era worth noting in the annuls of American history.
Ally Stacher is a professional cyclist with Specialized-Lululemon. She's a support rider who does everything she possibly can do to help her team succeed. Stacher
inherited a love of homemade juicing from her aunt, who bought her a Jack LaLanne juicer during her sophomore year of college. “I was instantly hooked,” she says. “My roommate and I started juicing like crazy.”
It’s a habit that Stacher continues today—even while on the road. “I was traveling with a little Omega juicer,” she says. “It was perfect—it fit into my backpack so I never had to put it in my checked bag. Then the travel got to it and it died on me. It was an incredibly sad day. I now travel with a Breville juicer my teammate bought me for my birthday. It’s pretty easy to lug around. I will say, though, when you go through security with a juicer in your backpack it tends to set off the alarm.”
Stacher claims to be a frugal juicer—“I don’t do too many add-ins…the occasional wheat grass, but that’s about it.”—but admits to being crazy for beets. And for good reason: Research show that drinking beetroot juice can boost a cyclist’s endurance. In one study, volunteers were able to ride about a minute and a half longer compared to when they drank a placebo. Ninety-two seconds may not seem like a lot, but in the world of professional cycling, it’s more than enough to separate the winners from the losers.

Jonathan L. Dade left the Navy after six years of service with back pains and post-traumatic stress (PTS).
“Finding my place in society was an uphill battle. I struggled with depression, anxiety and “fitting in”, until a friend introduced me to Ride2Recovery, and I have been cycling ever since, instead of doctor visits or medication.”

Ultracycling legend Lon Haldeman joins us to talk about his recent PAC Tour in Ghana as well as the upcoming Elite PAC Tour.
The fastest transcontinental bike tour ever! PAC Tour's first Elite Tour was in 1995 and has been going strong ever since!
Daily miles range from 140 to 196 miles per day. Riders completing 100% of the tour will qualify for the Race Across AMerica.This extremem cross country bike tour intended for the most serious riders who are looking for a very challenging ride across America. All riders must routinely ride 200 miles in 10-12 hours in training. An Elite Team Division is being offered for two riders to share participating by individually riding 80-120 miles each day.
This Elite Tour begins in San Diego, California with moderate daily distances the first three days while crossing the desert. We hope all riders will be able to gradually work themselves into shape before they begin the longer days for the remainder of the tour. The route will use a combination of good cycling roads we have ridden for many years.
This is not an easy cross-country route following the boring flat lands of the Southern states. We will intentionally climb many steep mountain grades in Arizona and New Mexico. In the eastern states we will ride many hilly days including the notorious Talimena Parkway which includes many 15% grades.
This cross country bicycle tour is only for the best riders. Do not come on this tour if you are looking for an easy ride across the country. Even the fastest riders will be tested to their limits on most days.
Discus fish are a very sensitive species so, we must take extra precaution with stablization of their aquarium water parameters. To properly stabilize a discus aquarium a complete cycling of your aquarium is a must. William T, The Discus man will teach the nitrogen cycle for the discus aquarium on this episode of Aquatics Euphoria sponsored by the Euphoric network here on Blog Talk Radio. Co-Host James Jones The Crayfish King will be live with me, William T for this episode. Call in live at 1-347-677-1837 to share, ask questions or to even heckle us!
