Well there comes that time of year where all the bike companies decide to meet in one of the most expensive, sinful, and ridiculously fun cities in America. A little hot place called Las Vegas. A moment in cycling where the old stuff will be showcased and replaced with the new, and beer flows 24 hours a day for all cyclist alike. The industry renowned INTERBIKE in Vegas is home to the unfailing of next years cycling goods. So IF you don't blow it all at the tables, you can get your hands on some fine product for next year. Luckily for me, I don't gamble…so I'm all good.

This year...

You never think you’re going to get hurt until you do. I’ve never taken my health for granted, at least, I don’t think I have.

I’ve always pushed the limit, but in my own way. Being a self employed artist & muralist, I have to be careful because if I get hurt,
no one can do my job for me but me- and my health is my wealth.

But I also don’t want to have fun and experience life to it’s fullest. If I didn’t that would be a waste of my health.

I’ve heard of people blowing their knees out, MCL, ACL, Meniscus… always sounded bad, but I never thought it would...

See the look on my face in the photo of me with my bike? Not happy. Went off a jump wrong, leg came off the bike and hyperextended my knee really bad. So bad I thought I dislocated my knee (although that's hard to do). So bummed.

I partially dislocated my left shoulder in college on my first mountain bike with front suspension. A Haro Escape- hard tail. Fun bike- but that messed me up for a while. Took forever to be able to paddle surfing correctly again.

My doctor doesn't think my meniscus is torn, or my ACL. He thinks my muscles and tendons were really strained- and they...

We make great shorts. That's not self-inflating hype, that's the consensus of thousands of customers who have bought ZOIC shorts over the years, as expressed by all of you who tell us about it in reviews you post online and the stories you share with us at events, and as evidenced by all of you who come back to buy multiple colors of your favorite styles.

Mixed in with all of those reviews and stories are often requests. A common request we hear is "Why don't you sell your shorts without liners? I wear my ZOIC shorts for (choose any combination: hiking, rock climbing, trail running...

Summers are cool here in West Virginia. Temps rarely go into the Eighties and let's face it, its a rain forest! The last two summers, I've been getting people to come up from the city lowlands to take one of my skills clinics or guide them on a ride. Its so nice riding in head high ferns and soaking legs in cold creeks, while getting to ride technical terrain.

Seven lucky ladies attended the Canaan MTB School and honed log hopping skills, off camber roots and rock gardens. It was a beautiful weekend of sunshine and warm temps.

Next up was a Women's Pedalpalloza Skills...

Today I met Gangju Jo from South Korea at 7-11 in Cardiff as I was walking in to get something to drink, since it was like 83 degrees. I noticed his bike first, loaded with riding, camping and travel gear… but not as much as you’d think. It was packed up pretty nice and neat. Then I saw Gangju who was wearing a long sleeve Race Face lycra shirt- and I realized he was on a long ride. Little did I know how far he’d come.

He flew over from South Korea on a 30 day visa to ride his bike from Montreal Canada, all the way down the east coast to Florida. Then from Florida he rode through...

Here at Keystone Colorado for the 3rd stop of the Big Mountain Enduro Series, and also part of the North American Enduro Tour. Its been a fun but rough month of training and racing. I found myself over trained and in a hole for the first two stops of the Big Mountain Enduro Series. Riding with no power and tired. My last couple of races I felt like I was holding on for dear life, never in control. Never good signs for any athlete. So I took 4 days off the bike to recharge the batteries. I later found out after a Chiropractor visit that my back and body are severely out of alignment. So I...

June was a really busy month for me. I started out the month getting back to some racing after a nasty rib injury kept me on the race sidelines. One of my favorite races is the Massanutten HooHa Enduro and XC races in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Its one of those long standing rocky east coast races that added an Enduro to the mix last year. I was stoked to see some young female riders in attendance and even more tickled to fend off the youngsters for another year taking the win both days! The next weekend was another double doing the Cooper's Rock Enduro on Saturday placing first and the...

Cascadia Dirt Cup Rd 1 was this past weekend. I couldn't have been a more different experience than round one of the Oregon Enduro Series the previous week.

Location:
OES #1 was located in wonderful Hood River, OR. You've got breweries breakfast spots, coffee and great bike shops and all of it's located within 15 minutes of the trailhead. Hood River is an epic outdoor adventure destination location! CDC #1 was located in the middle of nowhere southwest, WA. You've got… a correctional facility nearby. Seriously. And if you drive 30 minutes or so you can get all the...
