What Did We Learn This Month?
Recaps of Bicycling, More and Allure
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
How are you today? Me? I am fighting off some kind of a bug but I just had to get out my recaps for all of you because I care THAT MUCH!
So let’s get to getting’ shall we?
Bicycling: March 2012
- “Reader’s Choice” Huzzah! All of us Bicycling fans out there weighed on the best in rides, food, bike gear plus why the readers ride in the first place (79% do it to stay healthy, yay!) plus their best “biking” advice. If you are a cyclist—you will love this issue.
- “Mass Appeal” Bicycling lists the best multiday rides you can take this year. Get your calendar ready!
- “Mini-Mart Madness” This has been my quandary many a time before—I am out on a longer than expected ride and then suddenly I am starving. So what on earth to eat when there are only convenience stores around? Check out page 28 to see for yourself. (I agree with Bicycling by the way.)
- "Hot Spots" If you are sick of the cold and looking for fun, sunny vacation ideas—check it out here. (Lafayette, Louisiana? Hmmm.)
- “Fixes at Your Fingertips” The best apps to help simplify your biking life.
- “Saddle to Table” A photo-filled essay about riding the Quebec Flavor Trail that made me want to head north and eat pastries.
- “The Perfect Ride” Expert advice for women on what gear to get out there on a bike already.

More: February 2012
- Michelle Obama: More interviewed the First Lady about her early struggles with self-doubt and her desire to help girls everywhere gain confidence.
- “”How to Look Fab on the Weekends” If you are in a “yoga pants” rut like I am –this fashion guide will help both of us look presentable (and not sloppy!) on the weekends. (Though I do love my yoga pants so….)
- “Who Owns Your DNA Anyway?” Incredible story from legal advocate Lori Andrews who is fighting women’s health all the US Supreme Court and trying to keep potential drug costs low. (She found out the high price of being sick in the country after getting a bill for $3340 for a breast cancer test that could have cost as low as $300—holy crap!).
- “Find Your Best Hair Cut” More offers ideas on what your mane should look like during your 30s, 50s, 50 and 60s.
- “Against All Odds” Five incredible women are featured here to discuss how they overcame serious illnesses and regained their spirit in spite of tremendous odds. Inspiring stuff here.

Allure: February 2012
- Zooey Deschanel: Every time I think that Zooey Deschanel is just a little too twee—I remember her work in Elf and The Good Girl and like her all over again.
