Red Kite Prayer by Padraig, Red Kite Prayer - 1h ago
This week Selene takes on coaching and the difference in interacting with an actual human coach vs. an AI one like with VeloPro, which Patrick just reviewed this week. It turns out, Selene does better with a real human. Patrick finally caught up with Dirty Kanza’s Chief Gravel Officer, Jim...

For the last few months I’ve been using a new coach. This was a big step for me. Since I stopped road racing 15 or so years ago, I’ve been virtually discipline-proof. Left to my own devices, I’ll do long days, short days, easy days, hard days, ones on the...

It’s a question of what grounds you. We all need that in our lives, right, a reset? I think one of the things that drew Padraig and me together was that we are both introverts. We recharge ourselves during time alone, often on the bike. That means we might shy...

Red Kite Prayer by Padraig, Red Kite Prayer - 1w ago
It’s summer in Pennsylvania! This week we tackle a Paceline-style PSA in the form of CPR training. Selene has quite the story. Riding eMTBs on singletrack is an activity that can elicit some strong opinions. Patrick takes on the use of these bikes on singletrack in the various kinds of...

My guest this week is someone that you likely haven’t heard of before. His name is Ryan Johnson, but his resume is arguably one of the most interesting I’ve come across in the bike industry. For anyone who wants to know how the bike industry works, Johnson is someone who...

Over the last four years I’ve been watching one of my favorite apparel manufacturers guide itself to a resurgence. Back in the 1990s, Pearl was the it cycling apparel manufacturer to buy if you weren’t going with custom team kit. They were the first apparel manufacturer I encountered that started selecting...

Red Kite Prayer by Padraig - 1w ago
I am a person of multiple worlds. I hail from the South, a land as distinct as a foreign country. I chased adulthood in academia, but found it turning pedals. I discovered a home in New England, embraced a career in California. Added together like the sales for the first...
