The Kona Ironman world championship consists of a 2.4-mile swim in a calm bay in downtown Kona; a 112-mile bike race through the barren black fields, climbing up the lush mountain road with green grass to the small town of Hawaii; then back down, through the lava fields to the Kona Surf Hotel outside of Kona

The Annual Pilgrimage – Interbike 2017 Preview

Lord Windsor Roasters in Downtown Long Beach is Cyclist Approved
The wide open bar and absence of Wi-fi in Lord Windsor’s Roasters supports a social atmosphere in which talking to a neighbor or getting lost in each sip of your delicious beverage is completely justified.
From Bike Rides to Grape Vines, The Cycling-Wine Connection
We sat down with the co-owners of Peloton Cellars, Bill and Trish Kesselring, to talk about their role in the Central Coast Classique bike ride, and how their cycling and viticulture worlds have collided. Central Coast Classique cyclists can look forward to these wines and more on their tour of the Central Coast, where the lifestyle and fellowship of cycling and viticulture aren’t nearly the odd couple they seem.
Racing Trains: The Iron Horse Bicycle Classic & Quarter Horse Bicycle Race

The Catalina Coastal Climber
On this route, you’ll be challenged with paved and dirt climbs but breathtaking views that are worth the pain. The only cars you’ll encounter will be golf carts and the trails are generally pretty sparse with people; you will definitely see some wildlife, with a good chance of buffalo sightings. At the top of the coastal climbs, you’ll hear the barking of sea lions swimming in the oceans below.
