Seth Davidson’s latest post “When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again” struck a cord. Sure, I haven’t returned from the war like HIM and all it took was for me to return was a Southwest flight, a shuttle to my […]

Mountain Bike Lunch Ride Redux http://www.neilbrowne.com/2014/01/mountain-bike-lunch-ride-redux/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=mountain-bike-lunch-ride-redux http://www.neilbrowne.com/2014/01/mountain-bike-lunch-ride-redux/#comments Wed, 22 Jan 2014 05:24:47 +0000 http://www.neilbrowne.com/?p=11281 Lunch rides are the backbone of all cycling companies. Some are “world famous” and almost all bike companies include their lunch ride in the company employee benefit package next to the bullet points about health insurance benefits and your 401k eligibility. However, because I ride back and forth to the office I opt out of […]

These lists, now called “listicles” for those in the know, are of various lengths and cover a broad range of topics. However for my purpose and audience I thought I’d stay focused on cycling. Some cycling media outlets beat me to the […]

We jam a lot of crap in there and quite frankly, we don’t know why. Gas receipt from two weeks ago – yeah I got that. A one-year old Cinnabon receipt from the Boulder airport that I saved because I was going to write off that goopy, […]

Hitting bookstores now is “Wheelman” written by Reed Albergotti and Vanessa O’Connell. Hitting the big screen this November is the documentary by Alex Gibney, “The Armstrong Lie.” If that’s not enough an unnamed movie is currently being […]

The day before the crash that caused him to drop out of the […]
