tour de palm springs

It’s been snowing for the past few days here in Wisconsin and our trip to Palm Springs, California cannot be here at a better time. It will be our first time exhibiting at the Vendor Expo for the 15th annual Tour de Palm Springs and we are looking forward to being outside in the middle of February without a coat and gloves. If you are planning on doing the ride or live in the area make sure to stop by and say hi. The expo is  free and open to the public!

the tour-back to school

We are all in denial here at Cyclelogical that summer is almost over and even some  kids are going back to school. The new Tour back pack is making the transition from summer to fall a little bit better to take though.

These Americana inspired, made in the USA back packs are great way to greet our autumn friend! With an open concept they can fit books, clothes, shoes and anything else you need for the day.

the heartland of America

Living  here in the Midwest has a nice Americana-vintage feel about it at times. As you pass the barns, corn fields, and beautiful country sunsets you are reminded that this really is the heartland of America. You are awestruck a bit more when the view is seen from a road bike and you take in the sights along with the sounds and smells of the land. But sometimes the Midwest in all its heritage and family living is a bit rigid when it comes to us cyclists.

At the same dinner party mentioned in the previous post we heard a story about just this very thing.

C. (the one with the nice bike) was telling this story of her husband L. (the one who wrote home about her nice bike) L. went for a ride one day in one of our neighboring states, there he was on a stretch of beautiful Midwest country road, biking and enjoying everything the day had to offer. Not a car or person in sight for miles. He eventually heard the faint sound of  a vehicle approaching and knew it had plenty of room to maneuver around him. As the driver got closer, L. realized it was of course a good ole heartland truck! The driver slowed down at Larry’s speed and pulled up right alongside him and began to yell…..

“Hey You, Hey there Mr.  Lance Armstrong, Hey get off the road! Yeah you Lance, You will NEVER win the Tour de France, So get off the road!” Then in classic fashion the truck sped away with what I would assume was validation of his constructive criticism.

We all laughed pretty hard at the story and those of us in the room who have cycled the roads outside of our city had to laugh at the honesty of how difficult it is to ride there without being heckled, honked and or  snickered at.  We may not be training for a big race or even dream of  entering the realm of elite cycling, we just want to enjoy our home and all the beauty it has to offer from the perch of a bike seat. Is that really something to get so upset about?

By the way, even though I have never ridden with L. I have heard he is an animal when it comes to road and mountain biking and he would probably be quite a contender when up against any elite cyclist.
