  1. @versio A gravel race called the Almanzo 100. Very well organized and thought out and a very hard route. There were a lot of people suffering in 90 degree temps and 25+ mph winds yesterday. Wouldn’t have had it any other way. »

  2. Got it. Lots of catching up around here. I was in the woods for a week and then traveled to and rode in a race this weekend. Its good to be back. Seems like peeps got their panties unwadded. Glad I missed that. »

  3. @versio Huh? »

It is my great pleasure to bring @Dan_R’s article to the Velominati. Frank has recently written about cycling as an addiction. It’s a “good” addiction but it is more than that. We worry about our Strava numbers, debate sock height, but forget that the simple act of cycling with others can offer more than just an endorphin bu...

  1. Riding can do so much more than fitness. And the brotherhood you all share is tremendous. Great piece. Thanks for everything. »

The Ride. It is the cathedral of our sport, where we worship at the altar of the Man with the Hammer. It is the end to our means. Indeed, The Bike may be the central tool to our sport, but to turn the pedals is to experience the sensation of freedom, of flight. It is all for The Ride.The world is overflowing with small, twisty roads that capture ou...

  1. The vid with his mom is great also for Och. How cool is it that he was there for Davis and now Taylor. I’m really happy for that dude. Awesome career and not bad for a blue collar guy from Wisconsin. »

  2. @The Fish Listen up peeps-the leader has chosen. »

  3. @brett which (after seeing how you operate with the fairer sex on the KT) makes your reasoning and your actions contradictory. I’da pegged you for a Tour of Poland man myself. »

  1. The first dozen or so posts in here take me back. Thanks for revisiting this article. »

With the Cogals slowly starting to take shape and the days getting longer, @936adl did a good job in the timing, organization, and the promotion of his Cogal. Buckle in for the fruits of his labor as from all accounts, this was a fantastic ride and great time; I’m only sad I couldn’t be there myself. Fair warning: He’s already ta...

  1. Most excellent and perhaps the most successful cogal to date. Very descriptive writing – it put me there. Thanks all. »

We are the Keepers of the Cog. In so being, we also maintain the sacred text wherein lie the simple truths of cycling etiquette known as The Rules.

  1. @tessar Your mom sounds rad. Heirloom bikes with Record 10S? »

The Rules are about cultivating a passion for riding our bikes to gain the maximum enjoyment possible. This requires humility, for one thing, and devotion, for another. It requires a balance between focusing on progress and enjoying the journey. It demands a reverence for our history paired with a hunger for evolution. The Rules teach us balance, t...

  1. On the Keepers Tour RVV ride we rode past a dude at least as fat as Lampre Man wearing an Astana kit pissing on the side of the road. That was weird. »

  1. @paolo @paolo Give that man another! And let him wear The V-Kit post of the week jersey. »

  1. Flemish Enema? And yeah-who knew RdV was such an asshole? »

  1. @Jarvis Excellent comment. »

As Keepers Tour crossed from dream to reality and routes over the cobblestones of Northern Europe were sketched out, with it came the familiar tingling in my fingertips and uneasy sensation at the base of my spine as my mind starts its irrevocable journey towards categorizing as mandatory an unnecessary indulgence. I was going to need a wheelse...

  1. Ive been singing that out on training rides lately. We’re gonna have to do a round for sure.@Rigid »

The Bike. It is the central tool in pursuit of our craft. A Velominatus meticulously maintains their bicycles and adorns them with the essential, yet minimal, accoutrement. The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

  1. If only the Keepers Tour, spring classics, and this were 6 weeks later. I could make an extended stay of it over summer break. Sounds like a great time Sheila. »
