Stand Up Comedy: Getting Pulled Over by a Cop While Biking is Lame

Have you ever been pulled over by a cop while riding your bicycle? Comedian Kyle Kinane has and it cost him $160. Frankly, he got lucky. I just paid off my first bicycle related ticket last year and it cost me $200!

Wallride to Faceplant: This is Why We Wear Helmets

On his first training run in Valparaiso, a course marshal darted out in front of Filip Polc, which caused him to scrub some speed as he entered a wall ride and ended with a massive faceplant. Don’t worry, Filip managed to brush himself off and won the actual race later that weekend.

Video: Specialized’s #itsmytour Series Intro

Want an inside look into two of Specialized’s top pro cycling teams? Their #itsmytour series provides just that, showing off the preparation, gear and training that goes into Astana’s and Omega Pharma-Quick Step preparation for the grand tours. From Specialized:

Last year, we started a campaign leading in to the Tour de France called #itsmytour. Not everyone who loves cycling will get an opportunity to race for glory in a grand tour, however, the #itsmytour campaign asked riders of all types to let us know what make them feel like a hero, what makes them feel like they’re cresting the summit of the queen stage in the Alps after a daring solo attack on their rivals. Certainly for some, it could be winning their local downtown crit… but for others, it could be commuting to work or dropping 10 lbs. Whatever the goal, we wanted to show our support for riders of all types leading in to our biggest goal of the year, the Tour de France.

This year we want to continue the momentum of #itsmytour, and to start it off we want to show the behind-the-curtain world that the pros go through as they prepare for their tour (which just so happens to actually be the TDF…). Over the next few months leading up to the race, we will be showing off new episodes of #itsmytour. Hopefully, as more riders watch, it can encourage them to get out the door and accomplish something great for themselves.

Friday Features: Lines on a Map, Fixies on parade, and the most Creative BMX tricks Ever?


We’ll start off the Friday Features on a different note this week. Instead of the latest video game tricks played out in real life by two wheeled dare devils, Mavic brings us a clip of a ride. An incredible ride. One that defines us as cyclists and what we love to do. Go farther, push harder, discover ourselves. Deciding to take on a 230 mile epic across the state of Colorado, Mavic’s Zack Vestal brings us along on his journey. One things for sure, if Zack ever gives up riding and working for Mavic we think he could find a job as a narrator.

Details and more films, next.
