Rapha Women’s 100 In Numbers
WOMENS_100_STATS

I am very stoked on the Women’s 100 event that Rapha organized. Here’s the break-down on this successful event:

Sunday 7th July was a big day in road cycling: the Tour was in the Pyrenees where Team Sky’s Christopher Froome was defending the yellow jersey for the first time. Simultaneously, thousands of women cyclists were riding their own ‘big loop’, participating in something called the Women’s 100. Rapha’s idea was to encourage as many female riders as possible to go out and bag 100 kilometres on the same day as the Etape du Tour, where a merry band of women cyclists, some new to the sport and some experienced, would ride the 130km from Annecy to Mt. Semnoz.

It was a roaring success and a great day for riders worldwide. We’d like to congratulate all the people involved, particularly those who had never achieved that distance before and the people who organized the rides, chapeau. And our message now is a simple one: keep on riding.

Sally Carson’s Fixpert Comics: Issue 01 – The Skids
TheSkids

Everyone’s NYC tale is worth sharing in my opinion and some take the extra effort to illustrate their journey. Take Sally Carson for example. The debut issue of The Skids is Sally’s auto-biographical tale about her days as a New York City bicycle messenger in the days after 9/11.

Check it out here.

Nice find Tracko!

Bruce Doscher Cycling Posters

With the Tour right around the corner, the cycling posters come out of the woodwork. I’ve seen a lot of work over the years but Bruce Doscher’s are very unique. See his work from last year’s Tour at his portfolio site.
