Neil Browne - Brand Journalist Browne Eye Blog - Cycling from Neil Browne's perspective 2014-07-31T17:18:53Z http://www.neilbrowne.com/feed/atom/ Neil Browne <![CDATA[Pausing to remember a cyclist]]> http://www.neilbrowne.com/?p=11295 2014-02-05T03:07:58Z 2014-02-05T03:07:58Z This subject is one that everyone hates to hear and write about – the senseless death of cyclist. Struck down in the early morning while out for a ride, Joseph Robinson leaves a void that will never be replaced. I never knew Joseph, but when you hear of something like this you reflect on what […]

Neil Browne <![CDATA[The More Things Change The More They Stay The Same]]> http://www.neilbrowne.com/?p=11288 2014-01-30T03:45:39Z 2014-01-30T03:45:39Z I’ve been enjoying the “Cycling in the South Bay” blog since my return to Southern California. 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 […]

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 […]

However, like that bathroom you had to unlock with a key that’s tethered to a pipe wrench to prevent it from being stolen(?) you sometimes have to do the unthinkable. Some of […]

Neil Browne <![CDATA[Lifestyle Change – Bike Racer to Bike Commuter]]> http://www.neilbrowne.com/?p=11265 2014-01-10T20:57:39Z 2014-01-09T05:19:05Z For some of you this is old news, but late last month I took a position at Felt as their Brand Journalist. What that means is in addition to copywriting I’ll lend my voice to social media which includes blogging, internal documents, and random assignments that always pop up (I did the voiceover for the […]

Neil Browne <![CDATA[Top cycling list for 2013 and Lance Armstrong too!]]> http://www.neilbrowne.com/?p=11261 2013-12-31T01:00:38Z 2013-12-31T01:30:08Z It’s that time of year when everyone makes a “best of 2013” list. 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 […]

Neil Browne <![CDATA[ThinFolio Wallet Review]]> http://www.neilbrowne.com/?p=11242 2013-10-31T16:50:02Z 2013-10-31T16:49:33Z   A man’s wallet is like a purse. 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 […]

As you might have noticed in comparison to rider’s transfers, which is a game of musical chairs due to one and two year contracts, bike sponsors don’t change too much – at least for 2014 they don’t.
