course, the only relevant news in the cycling world is that the Tour de
France has begun. All the more newsworthy because Lance is back for
another try. Websites like FoxSports and ESPN are covering the tour, as
well as some other “official” and more cycling related sites. A quick
search on google or bing will provide an overwhelming detour... but one
site you should definitely check out is http://www.livestrong.com/lance-armstrong/
to get the straight “dope” from the horses mouth.
Gang no more...
is a small core of folks in Prescott committed to the bicycle as a
social and recreational tool. Most of them were here when the “Chain
Gang” evolved to the more inclusive and friendly Prescott Cycling Club.
Now they have instigated a further evolution by incorporating the club.
The benefits of incorporating make it easier to host events like the
“Loop Challenge”, and it will better indemnify club officers. Also
evolving is their website http://www.prescottcycling.org
- new information includes a July ride schedule. It only costs $15.00
to join PCC ($20 for a family), which is an absolute bargain at today’s
prices. Don't forget to sign up for their listserve. Congratulations to
the officers of the Prescott Cycling Club for making this big step to
help support recreational cycling opportunities in Prescott.
Names are going back to their roots
guys dreaming of their youth
Fuji has been building bikes since 1899. Specialized was born in 1974.
bikes were born in Marin County by the likes of Gary Fisher and Joe
Breeze. It has been several years since Joe Breeze decided to shift his
focus to bikes as useful transportation, and not just recreational
toys. Today Breezer bikes are recognized as some of the lightest and
best handling fully equipped transportation bikes made. Of course Gary
Fisher was not just sitting on a couch waiting for inspiration to
develop the mountain bike... he was out doing something else... riding
road bikes! Now he too is going back to his roots: Check out the
Gary Fisher “Presidio” a lightweight steel framed cross type bike
designed to conquer the real world. ( http://www.fisherbikes.com )
