I have always struggled to achieve excellence. One thing that cycling has taught me is that if you can achieve something without a struggle it’s not going to be satisfying - Greg LeMond

Is the Sky Falling in Pro Cycling?

As a stubborn and perhaps foolish fan of pro cycling, I’m not ready to throw my bike off a mountainside and take up a daffy habit for weirdos, like running. No: I believe my beautiful but forever-tormented sport simply needs to reboot with better branding—and a new, transparent slogan.

Pro cycling: It’s always *!@#!%!! something!

You know, convert cycling’s chronic weakness into an asset…its sinister cloud into a silver lining…its albatross into a beguiling, Spandexed swan, eating a scone at a table inside your local coffee shop, loudly talking about functional threshold power and wind tunnels with a bunch of other Spandexed swans.

 Is the Sky Falling in Pro Cycling?

As a stubborn and perhaps foolish fan of pro cycling, I’m not ready to throw my bike off a mountainside and take up a daffy habit for weirdos, like running. No: I believe my beautiful but forever-tormented sport simply needs to reboot with better branding—and a new, transparent slogan.

Cycling Inquisition

I was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia, but now live in the United States. It's for this reason that I often, but not exclusively, write about Colombia within the context of cycling. My admittedly second-rate writing represents my attempt to help document a nation's history within the sport. The blog's tone is decidedly schizophrenic, with one post focusing on Colombia's cycling history, and the next being about Johan Museeuw's hair implants. If you're willing to put up with that lack of focus, you may enjoy the blog.

Fat Cyclist

The Gutless Cyclist

This project is about the adventures of a guy who loves to bicycle.

Twisted Spoke

It is almost embarrassing to admit how much I love the sport. I can get passionate about every facet–the history and traditions, the famous riders and personalities, from Anquetil to Hinault to Merckx to Armstrong. I love the equipment, the wheels, the gear ratios, the sound of the cranks turning, the adrenaline on a fast descent, the hard climb, driving the pedals. I like lycra, micro-fiber, cool, absurdly over-priced sunglasses, I like the classic steel frames, the carbon art forms, the ti goodies that never stop coming. I love the sounds of cycling, the landmarks of the great races. Paris-Roubaix, Le Ronde, the Vuelta d’Espana, Giro and the Tour. Vive le tout. Sestriere, Alpe d’Huez, Tormalet, the Arenberg Forest and Carrefour l’Arbre, the moonscape of Mont Ventoux.
