Light and Shadow on a Friday Morning

The dark and frigid mornings of winter in NYC are sadly not far off, but until they arrive the THW squad is taking advantage of the last bit of fall weather, be it on River Road or a Friday morning cruise through Central Park as captured by the team’s own Matthew Vandivort.

New Feature: Bikepacking NYC

New York City is easy to love and easier to hate, especially for New York City based cyclists. We are blessed with a plethora of local racing opportunities that may be unmatched anywhere in the country, but also cursed with too much traffic and far too many miles on the usual routes. At some point it becomes vital to escape the concrete jungle, be it a day trip to the back roads and reservoirs North of the city or an afternoon spent on the mountain bike trails just across the Hudson River in New Jersey.

Weekend Roll: Another Perfect Day on the Bike?

In hindsight I may have a tendency to declare too many rides a "perfect day on the bike." I almost certainly used that term somewhere in recapping our riding in Italy. And I'll almost certainly use it when describing our journey through France. And it has without a doubt come into play during more local explorations. But therein lies the beauty of the bike - it's ability to provide solace from the real world, it's ability to foster friendships formed over miles in the saddle and of course it's ability to allow you to consume inordinate quantities of food with teammates.

Sand, Singletrack, Sunshine: Bubblecross 2016

With the second half of the 2016 cyclocross season well underway a bit of fatigue is starting to set in - not just from the racing but also the Friday night drives that inevitably seem to last until midnight, only to be followed by painfully early alarms for the two following mornings and of course a return to the weekday grind immediately thereafter. Thus after several weeks bouncing between UCI races in Connecticut, Baltimore and Glouchester it has been exceedingly pleasant spending recent weeks closer to home at Marty Cross and HPCX (or skipping the races and taking in a bike of biking + hiking + camping). This recent local oriented theme carried through to this weekend with Bubblecross in Milford, New Jersey, a race best known for it's long beach section.
