Two of our Favourite athletes in the Mountain Biking World!!

When I started working with my college buddy, JD, who started Cyclelogical…I was not terribly familiar with the “Mountain Biking World.”  Sure, I had gone out occasionally with him and others on some “not so threatening” trails in Cali, AZ and UT but just to “have fun” (i.e. get a few bruises and scrapes) not a whole lot beyond that.  Then as I traveled to events like the Kamikaze Bike Games up at Mammoth Mountain my eyes started to open to what you MTB athletes go through and I was extremely impressed!

Then JD encouraged me to look up an MTB athlete, Syd Schulz, @sydschulzathlete and I have been “hooked” on her and Macky ever since.  In fact this morning, while drinking my coffee with coconut oil to get warmed back up after my 6am ride…I read her latest blog: https://www.sydschulz.com/mountain-biking/six-ways-to-peel-a-banana-or-a-rock-garden

She just has a great, unconquerable attitude with a the ability to just “tell it like it is” with no apology.  She has “pure moxie” as my uncle used to say. Beyond her blog and FB and Instagram, I find myself occasionally checking out Syd & Macky’s YouTube channel and absolutely LOVE this video they posted about a month ago…in which they go through their “Top 10” crashes of their 2017 season (my personal favs #7 “I made it past the part I was worried about” and #5 “Macky vs the log 😉 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoUCi2Qji00

Add to all this that they are “van life” people like myself, who enjoy traveling around, and even sport our Cyclelogical clothes at times when they are off their bikes…(https://www.instagram.com/p/BZJwCpinVcB/?taken-by=sydgschulz) (https://www.instagram.com/p/BYhXlGvnRtP/?taken-by=sydgschulz)

 

How could you not love them?!?!?  I encourage you to take sometime and check them out (you know in those “down times” at work when you need a to break up the monotony;) Cheers! -BS

When Movie Monsters Ride Bikes

We believe at Cyclelogical that there are few things better than the thrill and fun of being out on your bike!  This last week in Ojai, where we live, though was SOOOO HOTTT that our staff had to get their outdoor time in first thing in the morning or melt in the afternoon 100+ degree weather.

Those are the afternoons when other activities such as catching a movie indoors is best;) Some of our FAVOURITE movies are the ones with iconic monsters, such as, Godzilla, King Kong and Bigfoot.  We imagine and laugh about scenes of Godzilla speeding through Tokyo on his way to give Mothra the “smack down” or King Kong commuting via bike with the beautiful Faye Wray in tandem towards the Empire State Building.  And when we do that…we come up with some new Tshirt designs to share with you all.  Yeah…yeah…I guess in a way that turns up our “geek quotient” but HEY…when Movie Monsters join the world of cycling it’s definitely makes things more fun!!! -bs

Bike Love

We were at a dinner party this weekend and heard a funny little story about how our friend wrote home to his parents to tell them he had met a girl.

 

“Dear Mom and Dad,

I met a girl, she has a nice bike!” 

 

33 years later and they are still together and both advid cyclists.
