Gather round friends, we’re back with episode 18 of BICYCLIST.fm. This week we’re joined by Justin Macias, a regular contributor to BICYCLIST, the mastermind behind cyclistthings.com and a general bicycle wiz.
This weekend events include Old Caz, Roger Millikan Memorial Ride, and Quick n Dirty Winter Warmup. We will be attending the Winter Warmup in San Diego, so come say hi and pick up a copy of the newest issue!
This episode is brought to you by Swiftwick Socks, one of our favorite brand of cycling socks. Victor loves his orange Swiftwick socks so much, he hasn’t taken them off in months. Someone tell Victor to wash his socks!
Victor talks about this issue’s cover story – his 150 mile journey down the coast on the Pedego Stretch, and his most, and least, favorite moments. Justin talks about his articles in issue #129, starting with his route profile of the Santa Ana River Trail. We discuss our first time riding the SART and the section where you can smell fresh cookies (or doughnuts if you’re Tim). We finish up the episode with a discussion inspired by Justin’s article “Year Round Safety Checks”, and why you should do weekly maintenance checks on your bike.
