JUSTIN WILLIAMSBIKE RACER, CNCPT P. 30“Every day won't feel like winning. Remember to understand that the days you lack motivation and still get it done—those are the days that set you apart from second place.”ALVIN ESCAJEDABIKE RACER, CNCPT P. 30“When you’re out riding, sprint to every speed limit sign you see. It’s a good way to throw in a couple of hard efforts with a visible ‘finish line’ and can help you dial in how far out you can start your sprint. It’s usually more fun with friends.”BOBBY LEATEST EDITOR, WHAT WE’RE RIDING P. 12“For hot days, freeze your bottles the night before so you can enjoy cold drinks during your ride. That does wonders for controlling core body temperature.”CESAR ALVAREZPHOTOGRAPHER COVER“When you’re photographing bike racers, use the environment. Look…

1 / Machines For Freedom Fruits kit $178 jersey, $296 for jersey + vest I’m a sucker for subtly feminine prints and uncommon colors, and this kit has both.2 / Oakley EVZero Stride Prizm Trail $173 The only tinted sunglasses I’ve ever really liked on the trail.3 / Trigger Point Grid foam roller $35 Leaning over my handlebar for hours at a time is great for my fitness—but not for my already-tight hamstrings and lower back. Lolling around on my living room floor with a firm foam roller helps it feel better.4 / Honey Stinger Cracker-n-Nut-Butter Snack Bars $20 for 10-pack These. In almond butter + dark chocolate. SO GOOD.5 / Lifeproof Fre case $90 I’m rough on my phone. I drop it down stairs, ride with it in the rain,…

1 / SRM Powermeter and PC8 $1,900 and up Maybe I’m old-fashioned for sticking with this power-tracking system with no mapping functions, but my appreciation for only-what-you-need functionality is strong—and for pure, pro-level training and data capture, no other product is as reliable.2 / Thule Crossover Carry-On Bag $300 It’s big enough to carry everything you need on race day but small enough to stuff into an overhead bin. The bag opens in half for easy access, so you’ll never dig through a dark cavern in search of those gloves you’re sure you packed but can’t find. With optional straps, you can throw it on your back too.3 / Cannondale Scalpel-Si Team $9,000 It’s light and maneuverable, ripping fast, and with wheel decals to match the paint it’s very easy…

the selection

1I WAS GONE FOR just about a year this time, overseeing big brands like Men’s Health and Women’s Health. It was fun. I missed bikes. I wasn’t exactly going to die or anything without so much bikeness in my life, but I wasn’t really living, either. There’s a lot more to the story, and I’ll get it all out there as we go on. For now what matters is that I returned to BICYCLING—for the third time in my career—when Rodale got bought by Hearst and, after I bonded over bikes with Mosaic-owning Troy Young, who’s now the president of Hearst Magazines, he asked if I wanted to get back to where I was supposed to be. I did.I knew I was where I belonged, but after a year away…

do e-bikes diminish the value of hard-won fitness?

E-BIKES ARE HERE TO STAY. Not everyone is happy about that. I used to be one of them.Why? Because of a nagging, if irrational, concern that e-bikes somehow diminish the currency of my fitness and hard work as a trainer, coach, and athlete.I mean, do you know how long it takes to improve your power just 20 or 30 watts? A full year. Sure, I’ve seen a few total newbies gain 100 watts over 12 months of serious training. But that’s rare. According to Hunter Allen of TrainingPeaks, who tracks this stuff for a living, if you’re already pretty fit, you have to work super hard for at least 8 weeks to gain another 15 to 30 watts—about the amount needed to power an oven light. And even then, you…

shockingly good e-bikes

The zippy motor on the $6,800 Specialized Turbo Levo FSR Comp 6Fattie takes the sting out of climbing, and the plus-size tires float across anything in your way.With options to add accessories such as kids’ seating, this $3,999 Tern GSD cargo bike could replace a family car.The $3,200 Benno e-Joy looks like vintage Italian scooter and is just as fun to zip around town on.
