Exploring the Virtual Roads: Erik’s Journey into Smart Trainers and Zwift

Over the past year I’ve discovered smart trainers and Zwift, the online cycling ‘world’.  I’m probably a little late to the party but better late than never.  For those of you not familiar with smart trainers or e-cycling, a smart trainer is a device that allows you to ride your bike indoors.  These have been […]

Erik’s Reflections on the 2023 Kelly Brush Foundation Ride

The first weekend after Labor Day has become known for the Kelly Brush Foundation(KBF) ride in Middlebury Vermont.  This was my third time taking part, the second time doing the 50-mile ride after doing 100 miles in 2022.  I’m not sure how they do it but in my experience, the weather is always beautiful that […]

Alicia Dana’s Experience Paracycling at the UCI Paracycling Road World Cups in Italy

The start of this handcycle season has been intense. The same day I raced the Boston Marathon (April 17), I rushed to Logan Airport and boarded a flight to Venice, Italy. Ahead were 3 weeks’ worth of UCI Paracycling Road World Cups, and the Paracycling Tour of Flanders, in Italy and Belgium. I worried that an overnight flight after a hard race effort where I got very cold and wet, might push me over the edge into getting sick (at worst) or just not fully recovered and race-ready (at best)

Alicia Dana’s Experience Hand-Cycling in the 2023 Boston Marathon

My handcycle racing season started with a bang on April 17th; the first stop was Boston Marathon. I had only raced Boston once before, the year of the cold, wet rain, and sleet – 2018. It was a miserable experience – although I won the Women’s division, my time was nothing to shout about, and I was just happy I survived it. This year, I was looking forward to better weather (I hoped) and a more enjoyable experience.
