Hello Wheelers,

5 Links for Idle Hands July Edition

A busy summer of riding has meant some slacking in the ‘regular updates to five links’ department. Have no fear! I am back with a July edition just in time for the Tour de France.

1.  I had to include this link, although it is not strictly cycling related. I’ve been a huge fan of sports journalism for as long as I can remember, and I was alerted to this fascinating piece about the endemic doping in the Russian Track and Field program.

Five Links for Idle Hands May Edition

May’s Five Links for Idle Hands

1. The ecstasy and the agony. We begin this May edition of five links with a twofer. First, the brilliant Backstage Pass episode covering the most recent Paris Roubaix; second, the equally brilliant Backstage Pass episode taking us through L-B-L. In both victory and first loser, these episodes give the viewer a taste of the emotional rollercoaster that is a Spring Classic, and an appreciation for the team nature of the sport.

Windsor Park Criterium

Sunday, May 1st

Come out and join us for race #1 of our four-part series.
