Seattle is setting a standard for many things, not the least of  which is protecting Seattle’s younger citizens via valuable knowledge. Seattle now […]

I Got Lost in the Woods of Santa Cruz

As far as birthdays go, I believe this last weekend was by far the most therapeutic (mentally that is). My experience was one which made me realize why we get into such a thing as mountain biking in the first place. It wasn’t just a fun ride, the abundance of natural beauty in the Santa […]

This is My Mountain Bike

As a new contributor to Bikocity, I will be focusing on a return to the simpler days of mountain biking. Lately mountain bikes have become as expensive as motorcycles.

You Can Get Your Bike Blessed

But riding a bike in a busy city, like San Francisco or Manhattan, is a harrowing experience. Potholes lay waiting to grab your front tire and flip you over. Taxis speed by, more concerned […]

Interbike 2014 Highlights

As always, Interbike was a whirlwind of awesome bikes, gear, and people. This year we also attended Outdoor Demo, their 2-day pre-show test ride event. Outdoor Demo needs to go on the road, to make it possible for customers to demo as many bikes as Interbike attendees were able to. It was really too many […]

Amsterdam Rocks It So Hard (VIDEOS)

Amsterdam is perhaps the best large city in the world for bicycling and bicyclists. It probably is, but Copenhagen is also always in the running. Furthermore, there are better bicycling cities than Amsterdam in the Netherlands, but they are smaller, so I’m not sure if they are in the same class. Anywho, if you haven’t […]
