Thats what I think of my new hat direct from Belgium and my good bud, Harm Job. I must be the first in the US to have a pro hat from the new Radio Shack, Nissan, Trek (that’s a lot of sponsors) Racing Team.
Join the Veloist Cycling Club today and you’ll be riding on some of the best cycling roads in Lake County and Southern Wisconsin this summer. With seasoned cyclists leading the way we have rides on Saturday and Sunday to fit a range of cycling experiences. Check out our Membership page and tour around the site and see if the Veloist Cycling Club is right for you.
If you have any questions just leave them here and we’ll get right back to you with an answer. And make sure you share this page on your FB and Twitter pages.
A few years ago my good riding pals, Robbie Moss and Stu Holt, convinced me to try riding with a mirror on my glasses. Before that I had always gone the way of the club roadie and just turned around or guessed where the traffic was. Never again.
I have to tell you, this little $15 dollar mirror has saved me on many occasions and I never ride without it. Go geek and be safer.
I can see exactly where the cars are, I can push them out or brace myself if need be as they pass. I feel like I have more control of the road, and control equals safe riding.
You would never get into your car with out the three rear view mirrors you have, plus a camera in many cars. Treat yourself to the best fifteen dollar present you can ever get.
A safer ride on the road!
This is the one I use pictured above. Deerfield Cyclery has them, along with bar mirrors, lights and all the good stuff to help keep you safe out there.
Ride safe. Mike
Starting tomorrow at 9:15am many of the Veloist Cycling Club members will be riding indoors at the Lindenhurst Health and Fitness Club in Gurnee. The spinning class will be geared toward building a strong aerobic base, perfect for winter training. Wear your HR monitor and you SPD shoes, this is in a spinning studio at the club and taught by certified Johnny G instructors.
If you’re not a member of the club you can still ride with a Guest membership for $10. Get there early to fill out the form at the front desk.
Any connection to getting legs like Chris Hoy from this training program is false but shouldn’t stop you from trying.
