In our first VIQ (Very Important Question) we asked you, our audience, which foot you place forward when descending. We assumed most riders would indicate they put their left foot forward. We got an amazing 516 responses, so a pretty solid sample. As it happens Fatty, Hottie and Patrick all ride with their left foot forward.

This week’s VIQ: You’re a half hour from home, getting ready for a ride and realize you have forgotten your helmet. What do you do?
Go back for your helmet
Forget the whole thing and skip the ride
Buy a new helmet
Interbike is looming. Of our three hosts only the nerdiest among them is headed to the show for its last visit to Las Vegas. It’s his 26th Interbike and he says the show is shrinking, in part due to a broken business model.
In the not-too-distant future will be Fatty’s annual 100 Miles of Nowhere. This year the event will benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation to benefit people with Parkinson’s Disease. We hope you’ll join us with your own crazy and inspiring ideas for your 100 Miles of Nowhere.
Hottie waxes poetic about a blender. Yeah, we know. Here’s his recipe for his Green Smoothie:
one handful broccoli
one chopped carrot
two handfuls spinach
three glugs almond milk
one frozen banana or half an avocado
two tbsp chia/flax seed or almond butter
one squirt of agave or honey
tsp matcha green tea powder
pinch of salt
one cup of ice
blend until smooth but still thick
