Viktor Kapitonov’s gold medal ride on a Cinelli bike!
Sporting legends… Who was yours when you were 12? When I got seriously hooked on cycling in 1978, one of the first cycling books I read was by one such legend, Viktor Kapitonov. At the time, he was the only Soviet rider ever to win an Olympic road race. The book was called “It’s worth living for” (Ради этого стоит жить). Almost 35 years later, looking at the title, I think I understand what he meant.

Family life

By: Zdenko Kahlina

Our daughter moved to Ontario, so we are Empty Nesters now!
We are living in an empty nest: Wasn’t this the goal in our life? When children are young, we teach them to tie their own shoes, fix their own sandwiches, swim, ride bicycle, and eventually how to drive and do their own laundry. Parents spend time teaching their children in hopes they will be independent, productive young adults.

Biking’s a breeze for the ladies who love to cycle.
Three times more men than women cycle for fun, according to statistics. Suzanne Savill meets the women hoping to change that in the West Country. Cycling through the Cheddar Gorge is an impressive accomplishment by anyone’s standards.

Mexico’s hippie haven of Zipolite
Laid-back beach, lost in time, in carefree hippie haven of Zipolite, Mexico. Vera and I were there on a day trip, while vacationing in the near by Huatulco area. With the rented car we drove around to visit several places among them Puerto Angel and Zipolite – both small fisherman villages in Oaxaca province of Mexico.
