As we glide into the lazy and hazy days of an expectedly overheated SoCal summer, we’re taking a look back over our shoulder before we speed into the second half of 2016. For this issue, #133 of BICYCLIST, we bring you a 32-page dispatch on the 2016 Belgian Waffle Ride. We are very excited for the opportunity to share with you the stories from this event and hope you find the writing and photography as inspirational as we did. With less than a year until the 2017 edition of BWR, training starts now!
While we’re looking back, in the last issue of BICYCLIST, we brought you a collection of five steel bikes suitable for varying types of work commutes. This issue, we submit a sixth, a bike that stands out in terms of value, utility, and longevity, the Brooklyn Roebling. Backed by a lifetime warranty on the frame, front and rear rack and fender mounts and a touring-friendly triple-front Shimano drivetrain, the bike’s design acknowledges the challenges of a daily commute or loaded tour and is realistic about the needs of the average cyclist.
What adventures will you find this summer? Let us know!
See you on the route,
