Our News on this web site has a different slant on Bicycling than is commonly found on the internet, much of which is race oriented or news of new products.   We have included links to some of those sites at the right.

OUR news covers items that affect everyday cycling in subtle or unusual ways, as well as editorials on the GOOD news about cycling.
