What I have always loved about Mountain Biking is the immersion into the woods; the sense of solitude that comes in the wilderness that is lost entirely in the convenience and hustle of the cities I’ve always lived in. What I always hated about Mountain Biking is that my mountain bike never feels enough like my road bike.I was but a budding...

  1. And why are people crying out for Ryder, he’s not even riding the Vuelta. Movistar also have a very strong team and this Vuelta could be a watershed in Quintana’s career. VSP PICKS: 1. Contador 2. Purito 3. Froomedog 4. Anton 5. Valverde »

  1. I can certainly live without that creaking noise of Shimano SPDs but the cost of Speedplay pedals was a big impediment in the switch. I hope to cut down on my food intake and save some money from my measly graduate school stipend for these babies. »

  1. I’ve always looked at undershirt with some suspicion, doubting it’s benefit. May be it’s time for me to pick one and enjoy a comfortable ride in the sticky weather »

  1. All the ladies did send their worst photos for Olympics. I will re-quote San Tonio “I mean the DMV can take a better photo for crying out loud.” Emma Pooley mentioned that team GB is united and will be going for Lizzie. But then Bronzini is super cunnin… »

  1. I just love writing Lulu’s name in full. I think Cav will take the sprint by a mile, Sagan is too busy mopping up criterium money, that maverick. VSP PICKS: 1. Cavendish 2. Sagan 3. EBH 4. Gerrans 5. Luis Leon Sanchez »

  1. This post justifies my decision to quit job and enroll for a PhD. One positive thing which has already happened is that I took up cycling during my first year. Thanks for the post Frank, it will help us attack that hill with more determination. »

  1. Hope Stage 16 doesn’t let us down in terms of GC drama. I think Cadel will keep his powder dry for the next day but and Nibbles will only be able to attack on the descent. On a killer stage such as this, Rolland and Pinot won’t be allowed to go in the br… »

  1. those are some sweet goodies on offer. I hope to see Cuddles in the lead at the end of Stage 11 but it won’t be enough stop Wiggins from winning the GC. VSP PICKS: 1. Froome 2. Cuddles 3. JVDB 4. Wiggins 5. Nibali »

  1. Tour de Suisse is pretty tough one to call given the quality of the field. Almost all the GC contenders are polishing their guns at Dauphine and what we have here are “outsiders.” I will be lucky if end up getting any VSP points from this race. VSP PICKS… »

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...
