Bike Fest!

April is a great month for bikes in Tucson and Arizona!  Notably, Bike Fest runs through the month of April in Tucson and includes tons of great events to get you out and about by bicycle.

Bike Fest events include not one, but two, Cyclovia events, whereby the city streets get closed to cars and are opened up to pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders, you name it!  They are a great way to experience your community in a new way, while enjoying a nice walk or ride.  The first one is this Sunday, April 7.

If you commute by bike, you can also participate in the 2-Mile Commuter Challenge by entering all your trips by bike throughout the month.  Save money, get in shape, have fun, impress your co-workers, and be eligible for great prizes!

But that’s not all, there are many other events during Bike Fest, so check them all out here.  It looks like a great month for riding bikes here in Arizona.  See you on the roads!

New Beginnings

Women’s Bike Talk was previously the official website of the Missing Link Coaching Systems/ Specialized Women’s Cycling team.  However, since that team has officially come to an end, we are now moving forward with new beginnings for Women’s Bike Talk.

While we will no longer be a team website, we will have some exciting new developments for women’s cycling that we will bring to you in the next few months.  Please be patient with us as we make some changes, because these exciting developments will take some time to come to fruition.  Nonetheless, you can rest assured that Women’s Bike Talk will continue to be a great resource for women’s cycling.  We will keep you posted as we move forward!  Meanwhile, thanks for reading and stay tuned!

Thanks from the crew at Women’s Bike Talk!

And Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

Cycling is such a great sport!

If you think about it, cycling offers something for everyone – you can ride when you’re young and you can ride when you’re old.  There’s BMX, touring, road riding/racing and within that there’s road races, criteriums, time trials, track. Then there’s mountain biking that has cross country, downhill, short track.  I’m leaving a lot of variations out, but the point I want to make is that it’s so great to be part of a sport that accommodates different strengths, interests, ages, and stages of life.

I guess it’s on my mind because at this point in my life I’m only able to manage doing criteriums. It’s not that I’ll never do another stage race, it’s just that’s all I have the time and energy for at this point in my life.  (Ok, let me be completely honest here, it’s mostly the energy part that’s lacking.  My child is supercharged and I’m not.) :)  I don’t even really fret about it any more because the really cool thing is that I can still race AND I’m getting to share my favorite sport with my son.
