Velominatus: GottaRideToday

Order: Level 4 Velominatus

I am a 50+ bicycle obssessed Univ Prof and father of an athletic 15 yr old rider. Both of us race a little (the kid is more competitive than his dad) and ride metric centuries. We have a few bikes in the garage (MTBs, RBs, SSs, vintage heirlooms) and I might be close to flirting with the S-1 equation but so far I remain happily married.

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...

Evelyn Stevens was working on Wall Street four years ago and is now the best American women cyclist. How is that possible? Her parents must be enjoying dinner with pulses of 40 bpm and sky high VO2 maxes. Are they both professional marathon runners? Is that how they met? Maybe they have never attempted aerobic sports. If Evelyn has siblings and the...

When deciding which Rules each of us were to curate, no-one really had much idea what exactly was in there; ask...

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...
