Living the life... with Velo Love

@farzani's activity:

Ok, so you guys and gals don’t miss a trick, but sometimes we do. In fact, we kind of specialize in it. @Bianchi Denti just texted me to point out, as others have done on site, that we have almost missed the next stop on the VVomen’s VSP calendar, the Ronde Van Drenthe. On International Women’s Day, of all things.All I can tell yo...

Cycling is hard; I’m not leaking any trade secrets with that statement, but it feels good to say it anyway. No Cyclist avoids suffering, but of those who venture into our world, there are some who seek to limit it while others choose to embrace it. Then we have a handful of characters who consider playing Whack-a-Mole with the Man with the Ha...

  1. @Deakus  excuse me, but whining or “whingeing” as you say is not how it comes across!  her statement just gives the truth of what she has endured duing her dedicataion as a clean and focused athlete. If you have ever put your heart and soul into something… »

  2. thank you for writing and posting this. Being a woman cyclist and a former racer, I am to aware of the great athletes like Nicole who work their asses off with very little acknowledgment to the rest of the world! The hours, pain and love for the sport are… »

Truth be told, how many of us can resist a photo of ourselves Looking Fantastic on the bike? How many of us can resist the temptation of taking our eyes off the road and stealing a glimpse of ourselves in a shop window as we pass by? Not me, but then again a strong case could be made for my being a narcissist and I freely admit that I love looking...

  2. girls just wanna have fun. You know the pain will stop when you finally see Eddy on the Stockeau! »

December 6th is possibly the biggest holiday of the year for the Dutch. We put out our shoe, we write gedichten, we play pranks on each other, and we exchange gifts. As luck would have it, the good old Sint made a stop by the Velominati Headquarters in Seattle and left me an absurdly large bottle of dry lube; the the point where I felt like I need...

  1. @Ron YES I love my Craft headband!  het is koud hier in Belgie! »

  2. look what the Sint left me today in Belgium!!!! »

Here stands a man. A quiet man. A hard working man. A Belgian man. A man from a life of grit, cold, and rain.Here stands a man who has chosen a life of hard work and sacrifice; a hard life even within the context of Cycling. A man who spends long hours in the wind and in the rain, in the service of his team. A man who despite those long hours in...

  1. I was at that PR and saw Vansummern head into the Velodrome! Wow one of our local Limburg boys did it!  His GF/now wife was a champion swimmer at one point… »

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I’d need a thousand just to describe the carefully disheveled cap placement. I’d need another grand just to describe the positioning of the cranks or front skewer or downtube shifters. I’d be another mille mot in the hole to discuss the fit of the jersey or the white socks and b...

  1. I believe it is a combo of off center hat, sideburns and of course: SPONGE! »

  2. @Buck Rogers  i just happen to find this pic on the internet and had to save it! Cross racing is in full swing and in my neighborhood we have a few difficult wk races! I have 2 women friends who race pro so I try to go support when I can. It s such a grea… »

  3. @Buck Rogers  yep it’s cross time here in Belgium and even Farzani is riding singletrack in “het bos met de crossfiets” »

Clouds hang heavy in the sky, plump with a rain which contemplates the opportunity to hurl itself towards the Earth below. I get the sense that we wait for each other, the Rain and I; the rain relishes the opportunity to soak my clothes and skin, seeking to corrode my resolve while I cherish the opportunity to prove to myself that it will not be s...

  1. ok this is not sexy like the girl with the paint on mud, but here in Belgium this is what a Flandrian in training looks like after a road ride ion November »

  3. Tis the season here in the holy land. Wet dirty grity rides on farm roads. We now opt for singletrack in the woods on the Cross bike. If I could post a picture of my Flanders bike tans I would! »

During the birth of The Rules, just like the Big Bang, there was a flurry of new activity, too much expanding and not enough contracting; certainly not enough thinking. It’s hard to keep the throttle back when divining the Word of Merckx in real time. The interweb tubes whistled with new Rules shuttling back and forth, beers consumed, genius...

  1. @frank  hey when back when Farzani raced, she had a skinsuit. Good thing my computer does not allow photos to up load :) »

  4. well Boyz, I found no wheels today to “introduce” myself to as their were few Flandrien to be seen in this part of Belgium riding in the cold.. I did however get a some extra “Flandrien in training” points as I was deluged by a downpour with a good 30 km … »

  5. @Oli  understandable….I think the big difference is that we live HERE in a cycling culture. bikes have a definite rile here for transportation, recreation and SPORT! people recgognize this and know the “rules of the road”. If you are riding along the c… »

  6. @Oli  suggest you dont move to Belgium or you will be very frustrated… »
