Aussies @alisonmccormack and @_leeturner escape the winter with a little ride up Alpe d'Huez.
Come for the bike race, stay for the party. For almost two decades the original “All Mountain World Championships” has challenged cyclists to climb 3,500 feet to the saddle of the Sierra Buttes before ripping down a 4,000 foot descent into the race’s namesake town. The combination of a grueling climb and white knuckled descent has made it a popular proving for riders with fitness and fearlessness. But while the competition is what brings folks around, the community is what makes the weekend special. The entire weekend is a fundraiser for the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, the local non-profit that builds and maintains the trails in the area.

@AustinHorse crossed New York City's Williamsburg Bridge a total of 264 times, amassing an elevation gain equivalent to the height of Mount Everest. Kudos!
The stunt will raise awareness for cycling as an alternative means of transportation after the L line train closes in 2019 for eighteen months of repair.

It takes 264 crossings of the Williamsburg Bridge to reach an elevation gain equal to climbing Mount Everest. @austinhorse has been at it since Sunday morning and he's almost there! Send him some kudos or if you're in NYC, maybe bring him a snack.

Tomorrow, Sunday August 6th, @AustinHorse is going to ride his bike across the Williamsburg Bridge. 264 times. Until he reaches an elevation gain equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest, from the height of the bridge alone.
He's doing it because one of the main subway lines from Brooklyn to Manhattan is going to be shut down for repairs. And that means a lot of commuters will be searching for an alternate mode of transportation and Austin wants to show them why bike commuting is the best option. After all, most people will only have to cross the bridge twice a day.

Yesterday some of our friends took San Francisco's new bike share up one of our local climbs. You could say things got a little heated.
Thanks @ornotbike for being there to capture the action. at Hawk Hill

Kudos to @LinseyCorbin for taking home the win at #IMCanada this weekend.
This year’s Tour used the mountains sparingly, but when it did they were unforgettable.
Richie Porte’s ride on La Planche des Belles Fillesunderlined the fact that he was a true contender for the Yellow Jersey, and it would only make his catastrophic wreck on the descent of the Mont du Chat a few days later all the more painful.
The Tour de France gives and it takes away. It births legends forged in the flames of chaos. And it ends seasons and snuffs out careers in the blink of an eye it takes for a crash to unfold. On Stage 3, Cannondale-Drapac’s @natebrown0707, rode into the polka dot jersey for two days during his first ever Tour. And a legend was born.
