Edmonton cycling

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Perfect weekend to close the 2012 season in Edmonton!
Is there a better time to ride a bike than at the end of September? Especially with the weather we’ve been having lately. It’s perhaps the best time to get out and just ride for the pure pleasure of it. Read on!

Travel California

By Zdenko Kahlina

Round trip from San Diego to Palm Springs
Several years ago I was spending a week in San Diego on a business trip. During this trip I reserved one weekend to explore southern California and pay visit to Palm Springs and all the places in between. As usual, I didn’t choose the fastest way; instead I drove thru the national forest and some big mountains with twisty roads.

French Alps – Summer 2011

By Zdenko Kahlina

My ride up the Alpe d’Huez climb the day before Tour arrived.
Alpe d’Huez (in French Alps) is the most famous climb of the most famous cycling race in the world “Tour de France”. With its 14.4 km long road up the mountain and its 21 hairpin bends, at an average gradient of 8.45% it is not an easy task to conquer on the bicycle. But we did it… just as thousands of other cyclists did on the same day. The day before the big Tour has arrived!

Grand Fondo

From: BiciVeneto.it

These days cycling Fondos are getting more popular than ever!
Needless to say, don’t even think of entering a gran fondo if you lack the proper training and fitness (at least 2000 km/1200 miles), if you hate climbs, are afraid of technical descents with hairpin curves, or are uncomfortable riding in a crowd.
