Taken from Chrome. Their first clip-in shoe, the Kursk Pro. Just the right time for me.

Viva La Merino

Merino is excellent at regulating body temperature, especially when worn against the skin. The wool provides some warmth, without overheating the wearer. It draws moisture (sweat) away from the skin, a phenomenon known as wicking. The fabric is slightly moisture repellent, allowing the user to avoid the feeling of wetness -from Wikipedia.

Enough said, this jersey will be one of my favorites.. and I can’t wait for the next ride to wear my new helmet! Thank you to my lovely wife 🙂

No straps attached

Short morning ride this morning with my new Candy 1 pedal (Crank Brothers) and FN23 shoe (Shimano). It was my very first time with clipless pedals. All this time I’ve been riding only with flat pedals on my mountainbike and toeclips on my fixie. I’ve decided to try clipless system for my fixie because of two main reasons which are simplicity and better control. However it is still too early for me to write a full review and need more rides for myself to get familiar with it. At the same time I’m hoping to get responses from anyone out there who has been riding their clipless fixie. At a glance after a short ride, Candy 1 is a bit hard to engage but easy and smooth to release. And yes, it simply optimized my pedaling as well as skidding.

Currently, sixteen states* in the US have laws requiring motorists to give cyclists at least 3 feet of clearance when passing.  These “3 foot laws” are a good step in making our roads safer for cyclists.  The challenge is educating motorists about the law and reminding them to follow the law.
