Recaps of Bicycling, MORE, Muscle & Fitness Hers and Prevention
Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!
How are you all doing today? Me? I am just fine thankyouverymuch. The magazine are piling up around my apartment and I need to just get more of these posts up already so today I bring four of my favorite reads of the past few weeks. Hope you enjoy them!
Bicycling: April 2013
- “Bicycling 2013 Buyers Guide” What the hell am I doing working on a Blog post when I should be drooling over the pictures of the bikes featured here instead? (I want everything featured and I wish this damn winter weather would go away so I can actually do some cycling.)
- “Go the Distance” A page of “must have” gadgets and cool essentials to take on your next long ride.
