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 […]
I’m a light rider. I don’t push the limits as hard as I used to. But I am a test rider, and true to my title, I tend to break stuff.
It was a warm sunny afternoon when I took to Brown Mountain to punch out some intervals on the Cannondale Scalpel. A typical ride would be up Brown Mountain Road and down El Prieto two times.
The last thing I thought I’d do when I moved to Southern California was sit in a car all day trying to get to work and back home. Although I spent a few shorts months commuting from Altadena to Woodland Hills one or two times per week, and again a few short months driving to […]

The “Lee Bird Birthday Ride”, also known as the “4 Peaks Ride”, began in 2004. An excerpt […]
Gourmet dinners are best made at home. They cost a fraction of a 5 star restaurant bill, and it’s fun to prepare good food with loved ones. We’re on a kick here in the mtbchick test kitchen, and together with Alex Boone, we’ve created an amazing duck dish.

I was wandering around on my bike and stopped by Dorothy Wong and Jeff Herring’s (www.socalcross.org) place to see how they fared in the apocalyptic wind storm. Jeff was in Chinatown building the course for the weekend’s UCI cyclocross races, and surprisingly Dorothy was at home, frantic and on fire as usual. Naturally, I was […]
I love the Giro Sica and the Giro Aeon as an ensemble. The matching helmet and shoes have been my go-to for the past year, and I love every minute I’m wearing the two together. They look great, fit great and perform at the highest level. Here are my reviews and photos. Giro Sica Women’s […]

These beauties arrived last week, and here is a first look. We’ll post a review once we’ve had them on the dirt for a month or so. Specialized continues […]
One of the joys of being a cyclist is the amount of food one can eat. And the privilege of consuming a burger is one of pure bliss. As challenging as it may be to convince a vegetarian to partake in meat eating, the resulting happiness is worth the effort.
