db Sucks at Mail

Big show for you this week! Ride with GPS vs. Strava vs. Apple watch vs. a ton of nerd stuff (at the end) vs. Booze vs. Cannabis vs. Covid vs. Motivation. I mentioned it's a big show, right? If you haven't listened to RBR 63, now would be a good time to get caught up. Y'all might know that I have a blog, but did you know I also post recipes? Heck, I even posted about craft NA beer recently. Comments are open if you want to chime in or ask a question!

Faster than OJ Through an Airport

Ride Bikes Radio is back! Since it has been a minute, we catch up. Then, straight into Brian's plans for the next 12+ months of riding to celebrate the anniversary of his birth in 2024. Let's just say he has a lot of miles and feet of elevation planned, and we get to join him on his journey getting ready. Speaking of, here is a copy of his Retul report. Comments are open and we are looking for feedback on pretty much everything! You can also email that feedback in to feedback at rbr and we'll get it. We talked about the emergency SOS feature on iPhone getting used in Maui, OJ jumping things in an airport and the absolutely gorgeous Specialized S-Works Tarmac sl8. Finally, the latest show under the White Roof is The Hollywood Car Show featuring Fireball Tim. It's a really great show and we think there are a few of you that might dig it!

Welcome Back to Ride Bikes Radio

Sure, I know I said I was going to be keeping this going, back in 2021. Clearly that failed, so let's try again! This episode will be the first of 2 for July. Brian will be making a triumphant return very soon and we have a lot of cool stuff planned over the course of the next year. This is just a shorty with a fleet update and giving me a new show to put on the new host and show off on the new website. Comments are open. You know the rest! For those of you that are looking for a new podcast to listen to, I would like to recommend The Hollywood Car Show!

Ride Bikes Radio 59: #RideEveryDay

A quick and short show for you guys this week. It's not that we haven't recorded anything, because we have. There is a zoom video on the Stupid Facebook page and, well, another thing in the bin. You see, the last show we recorded was completely scrambled by the process I used to use to make the show. So, no Brian this time, instead you get me talking about #RideEveryDay for May, an update on the Gravity and, like we like to do, a trip through the Strava Club. I owe you a few links: My chain ring SE Speedster Tires Pedals BikesDirect Gravity 29er SS Did you smash all of your records in May? Post that to instagram and tag @RideBikesRadio so we can spread the awesome! Thanks for bugging us for a show! We noticed, we also notice when you share! That helps more than you know. If you don't think we are worthy, by all means, let us know by emailing feedback at ride bikes radio dot com.

Ride Bikes Radio 55: Sometimes I take Awkward Selfies

A little bit about me, a little bit more about me, and I really hate changing tires/tubes. If you are following along in the RBR Chat, you'll see that I have already corrected this, but boy was it frustrating! The other frustration is actually switching to clipless. I come clean as to why I haven't and Brian schools me on getting set up. Bike and Beer news we think you will like: Oskar Blues supports Can'd Aid Ducati Electric Bike? Denver snow plows hit the bike lanes The coolest helmet ever! Boulder Beer scaling back Scotch - A Golden Dream Skipping beer for Scotch (see above) and making a pass through the Strava Club.

Ride Bikes Radio 51: In Therapy Forever

Finally able to get Brian back! Besides catching up and discussing goals and riding bikes, like we like to do, we also make a pass through the Strava Club. Besides that stuff, a little talk about riding with strangers, Wahoo cycling computers vs. using the phone. You can click this link for Wahoo refurbed!

Ride Bikes Radio 50: Let's Try this Again

How about we take a few minutes to talk about bikes? First up, we have Strava breaking with with ReLive, or ReLive breaking up with Strava? Read these and let us know what you think: From ReLive From Strava Besides that, I am suffering from N+1 so bad right now it is not even funny. Go ahead and check out the latest bike that I covet and will probably have in my stable before the end of the year. I know it's not from an LBS, but it fits in my budget and in what I am trying to do with it. What else do you recommend that does not cost $1K or more? Comments are open! Go nuts! Finally, a pass thru the Strava Club and a little beer talk. Play along with the home game via the Untappd app. Your patience is appreciated. I know you guys like this show. Hell, I like this show. Life gets in the way sometimes and everyone just runs out of time. That said, like I said, I really like this show and will be trying my damnedest to keep up making 2 new shows a month. Who's with me?!?!

Fred Called Us Out

Fred Called Us out Catching up! I understand it's been a while, but weather in Arizona has sucked and I bought a freaking house! Apologies for the delay, but I do promise we will be getting back to it! Links: The most ridiculous comments opposing bike lanes Don't Confront MotoristsSnooty Peloton Images A quick pass through the Strava Club and beer as you expect, plus a minor detour into a bottle of wine; a 1979 Opus One. It was amazing and I acquired it upon the passing of my grandparents. You can read more about that on my blog. And do not forget about White Roof Radio. If you like a good car show, I think this one is pretty amazing. If you like MINI Coopers, you get a double bonus because it's all we really talk about it. And, that show makes this one happen, so thanks to them! I have made some changes to the site. Nothing earth shattering, but when you see it, it's not just you. Comments are open BTW!

Review: Specialized 2018 Diverge e5 Sport

A few minutes of me talking about the new bike and how awesome it is! You can read more about it at specialized.com. The way it handles, the way it feels, how comfortable it is. Oh, and did I mention it's FAST!?!?! And it's loud, but I'm coming to terms with it. Stick around for Episode 46 when Brian and I take a deeper look at this bike and I'm able to ask questions. Plus beer!

Starting off talking about really fast bikes on the Salt, Brian getting to ride bikes in a super rad location, you guys killing it (again) in the Stava Club and finishing with beer!

Read the story over at Cycling Weekly and be sure to check out Project Speed on Facebook for videos, more information about the bike and more information about the run. You can also check out their website at http://theprojectspeed.com/. Congrats to Denise and her team for slaughtering the old record!

Ride Bikes Radio 43: 150 Percent

Excuse the extra background noise. Brian's normal mic was still in a box. Oh, yea, we get Brian this week, fresh from his move to North Bend, Washington. He catches us up on the move, what he gets to ride and him doing some paying forward. Plus, you guys killin' it in the Strava Club! Hoping to get Danyelle back on soon for a full update on her triathon experience. Spoiler alert: She didn't drown! And we talk a little bit about beer, like we like to do.
