Jamis Wins Again

For the 5th year in a row Jamis has once again won Bicycling Magizne's Editors' Choice.
Quoted from the Bicycling Magizne review
"With a nearly complete Shimano Ultegra drive train and full carbon for, the Ventura Elite was lauded for delivering true recession-busting-value...The Ventura Elite was praised for its lively ride and predictable handling; it's less decidedly race-focused than Cannondale's Six Carbon 5 and offers better spec's than Trek's refined 2.3. The Ventura elite sprints to the win with the best possible attributes for the price."

Commute to work on I-4?

Have you ever said "I'd commute to work by bike if I had a better/safer/easier route"?

Well, save your excuses, this guy has trumped you. We passed this cyclist riding his bike on I-4 when we were on our way to Tampa last week! The saying holds true: a bicycle really will take you anywhere you want to go!

Bicycle Maintenance Clinic May 27

Has your tire ever looked like this? Makes for a very long walk home!?

MS Bike Tour May 16-17!

This weekend is the MS Bike Tour, where we will ride 150 miles from Bok Tower to Sea World... and back!

Dano and I have been participating in this event for many years. The MS Society does an excellent job coordinating the ride, marking the trail, and feeding us! But more importantly, we are riding to raise money to find a cure for MS. Our Aunt Cathy has MS, and 200 people are diagnosed with MS each week. Until we find a cure, we will keep riding. And once we find a cure... we will still keep riding... for all of those who cannot.
