Dear mtbchick, I am a beginner rider wanting to buy a mountain bike. I’m researching bikes, and I don’t know if I should buy a women’s bike or a men’s bike. Please help! -Confused Dear Confused: You are not alone in your state of wonder when it comes to whether or not you should buy a women’s specific bike. It depends.

We’ve partnered with Elisabeth Lilja, a yogi who helps everyday people integrate a yoga practice into their lives. In our first installation, Elisabeth shows us 3 poses for post ride (or post run, post exercise, post workday)... [Read the full story]

16 April 2012 No. This is not correct. This is not the way the story goes. The ending is too soon. Chapters are missing. The story, which began about 3 months ago, was one of courage, valor, and strength. One of a woman who had overcome, not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, the ravages of breast cancer. Someone who renewed my hope in humanity. Someone who had a spectacular sense of humor. Someone who knew how to love, how to give, how to receive and how to live. Someone whose qualities I wish I could call my own. Her name was Milly. Milagros. A miracle. I met Milly for the first time... [Read the full story]
