Today I want to talk about bike trainers... as in make your bike a stationary bike for riding when you can't or don't want to get outside to ride. I have always looked at bike trainers over purchasing a stationary bike and yes I broke down and bought one.

Ok Christmas is over, New Years is here and it's time to forgot about presents, turkey, gravy and goodwill. It's time to get out and burn off some of the calories and what better way to do it than going for a mountain bike ride? For many riders a new way to get out is on a “Fat Bike”.

There is nothing better than a great batch of hearty Lentil soup after a great day out on your mountain bike riding the trails.  You’re starving, and all you want to do is just sit down and chill while you fill the void you have successfully established in your middle area.  This is a great hearty soup that will fill it and give you a sense of satisfaction that you fueled yourself with what the body needs.

Over 70% of Americans are deficient in magnesium. As a cyclist, you should always be concerned with ensuring you’re not in that 70%.  Magnesium deficiency is actually one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in athletes.

Romance is in the air once again and the show must go on.

 

Valentine's day doesn't have to be a chore, and nor does it have to be a dull box of candy.

 

Valentine's day is about romance and bonding.

To romance you must connect but to connect you must understand and support the one you love.

Yoga In Meditation What a great ride, but now you get off your bike and you’re feeling a bit tight and worn.

Glass with water being poured into itThe single most important item a cyclist can pack is water.  You don’t need to be a hard core cyclist to make water the number one item to pack.  Water makes up 70-75% of our tissues, and dehydration will leave you feeling lethargic and susceptible to joint injury; so if nothing else, make sure you have enough water for your excursion.  You’ll enjoy your ride more if you’re hydrated, and you’ll feel stronger on your ride....

So you have told yourself that you are going to start cycling, but you just can't seem to get motivated to pull yourself off that couch, and get out there.

Well, there just may be help for you yet.  You just need to create a new habit....

Veggies on a cutting BoardWe are not talking about carb loading here or fueling for that grueling 20 mile cycling ride.

What I want to talk about is that snack you pack on that recreational ride you take with your family or a group of friends.

EdamameI’m not good with following recipes. I usually just throw stuff in that seems to be a good compliment and taste as I go.

My version of an Edamame Dip is a bit of guesswork in the quantity so adjust as you need to but I think you will love it.

It should be a relatively smooth and thick consistency like a hummus.  It has a very fresh flavor and is divine with rice crackers if you want to toss them in too.
