Wheel Talk + Skratch Labs Contest

09/25/2014

The last post I wrote was about Skratch Labs Matcha+Lemons. I became a big fan, such a big fan that I want to share it with those of you who are constantly on your bike and exploring your surroundings.

Beginning in October there will be two ways to win some Skratch Labs.

A Weekend With Skratch Labs Matcha+Lemons

09/08/2014

If you’ve ever ridden with me you know that I like to start my rides with a cappuccino. During the week it’s usually matcha that keeps me going at work, though. Matcha tends to give me a longer lasting energy rather than the jolt of coffee that leaves me hunting another cup when I crash.  When I heard Skratch Labs was releasing a product with matcha I knew I wanted to give it a try, and thanks to a quick order by Cykel I had some to sample.

Weekend Trip/California Drought

08/25/2014

Over the weekend I went to Gilroy to visit the family, do some riding, get my head on straight again, and to see how the drought has had an effect on the area. Living in San Francisco it’s often times hard to remember that we are in a drought because everything is so green around us and there is no mandatory conservation. Gilroy, however, has very little to no water and have had mandatory water conservation, with a $500 a day fine, in act since August 1st. Gilroy is also a major farming community so it’s interesting to see all this dry land and then ride by moist fertile farmland with sprinklers shooting out water without a care in the world.

Back to the Roots

08/04/2014

In 2010, a group of friends in Gilroy started Wheel Talk. We believed in riding bikes in dirt, having fun, and drinking beers. Lately, I’ve been getting back to those roots and it feels great; there is no chasing strava PR’s or KOMs, no intervals, just bikes and fun.

Rapha Rising: Defeated

07/28/2014

The Rapha Rising challenge on Strava is something I have had fun doing every year but this year, much like many of the Tour de France hopefuls, it was not in the books for me.

Day 1 started off with me bonking hard. Getting married and then going on vacation didn’t do too much for my fitness, but I somewhat expected this and wasn’t that worried.

Day 2 was dedicated to recovering from the bonk. Climbing BoFax and Seven Sisters had done more to my vacation legs than I thought.

Jaguar + Team Sky

07/21/2014

The riders doing the TT on saturday during the Tour de France won’t be the only fast things on the course. Jaguar built a special F-Type for Team Sky that they will be using during the stage. It features a carbon fiber bike rack that can carry two TT bikes, and a separate electric supply in the trunk powering the radios, amplifiers, microphones, horns and televisions. Of course it has also has a custom painted exterior and interior to match the Team Sky branding. I’m not sure the car will help them get a win that day, but it is cool to see sponsors doing something out of the norm for their teams.

Wheel Talk 4 Year Anniversary

06/17/2014

I can’t believe Wheel Talk is 4 years old. It seems like only yesterday we were just some street rats rolling around Gilroy, riding dirt, and getting in trouble.  If you’re curious, check out the video that started it all. Four years later and we are still around winning trick comps and sponsoring a road cycling team. We couldn’t have done it without the support of our family, friends, and all you who visit the site and like our stuff on social media. Thank you!  Read More
