Dear <<First Name>>,

The 2019 National Bike Summit Registration is OPEN and we want to see you there! The 20th Annual Summit will be March 9-12, 2019, in Arlington, VA and Washington, D.C.
 

This year's theme is SHIFT: Accelerating the Movement to Build a Bicycle Friendly America for Everyone. The 20th anniversary of the first National Bike Summit will be a pivot point much like the very first Summit. This is our opportunity to both take advantage of what we’ve accomplished and create what we need to move forward to build a Bicycle Friendly America for Everyone.

We listened to your feedback on past summits and have created a more inclusive 2019 Summit experience for you. By hosting this year's Summit in Arlington, VA, we are able to lower registration costs, expanding access to those who were unable to afford it in the past.

Interested in the Summit and want more information?  Learn more about the Summit, see the schedule of events, register, and book a room!

We hope to see you at the 2019 National Bike Summit! 

Best regards,
Bill

Should This Be UCI Legal? | GCN Tech Show Ep. 42 by GCN Tech on YouTube


Welcome to the GCN Tech show - this week we have exotic new Time Trial/triathlon bikes, your upgrades, the bike vault and our main talking point; should the UCI bike rules be relaxed so we can ride bikes similar to what we see in Ironman races. Subscribe: https://ift.tt/2DmZmbL The GCN Shop: http://gcntech.co/bn GCN Tech Uploader: https://ift.tt/2OExYJ6 The IronMan world championships in Kona has become a popular place to launch new TT bikes and this year saw the exciting reveal of the new Specialized SHIV TT. A bike that has had a huge overhaul from the existing model. The new Shiv is disc brake only and has a very unusual fork design. The dual crown design is said to improve stability and aerodynamics in crosswinds and the wide fork blades extend straight up from the axle. Less radical is the Canyon Speedmax of Patrick Lange, who actually won the event. His Canyon Speedmax is the same basic frame as used by Movistar and Katusha riders, but has UCI illegal boxes and a hydration system fitted which reduce drag and make the bike more aerodynamic. He also has a custom cockpit. There is also a new wheel out from Enve, who specialises in aero products have released the one wheel missing from their stable, a disc wheel. The SES disc took nearly 5 years to develop and we have seen Dimension Data riders using unbadged versions of these this season. It’s going to be available in disc or rim brake versions. Do you think the UCI laws around TT bikes should be relaxed?

rochester mn mtb blog Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
