The dash down Peyresourde. The run up Ventoux. There are plenty of Chris Froome highlights to choose from, but which one tops them all? We take a stab at picking the top Froomey moment and a couple may surprise you. We also pick our non-Froome moments from TDF ’16. And the Paceline puts in its proposal for a fifth jersey. We have some ideas on what that competition should be and a color for that jersey.
The Paceline gets back on what of its regular topics: advocacy. Padraig expands on his post on supporting not just one, but a number of groups doing work so we can ride. The idea is to spread the wealth.
IMBA has responded to the bill introduced in Congress that would open up the Wilderness Act and allow local land managers to decide if mountain bikes should bed allowe on trails.
We have a follow up to a city council’s dilemma about what kind of signage to post in their community. There was a vote and we have the results. The City of Palos Verdes Estates has taken a major step forward but there is more to be resolved.
Gear stuff: another electronic group set has been spied at the Tour. But FSA is still giving us the silent treatment on how it all works. And Padraig has a review of the station wagon of bikes. You will be surprised as to how much fun it can be to ride.
