The Outer Line: A Roadmap to Repair Professional Cycling

The Outer Line: A Roadmap to Repair Professional Cycling is an ambitious and intensive 4-point plan to heal cycling’s image, make the sport economically viable and establish effective long term governance prepared by two Colorado business analysts turned cycling advocates.

PEZ Roadside On Alpe d’Huez!

Roadside Report: Alpe d'Huez is a mythical mountain, a grand beast that conjures up images of battles past with its 21 hairpin bends and its leg sapping slopes. I've been roadside on the Alpe during the Tour de France on a few occasions including the famous mountain time trial in 2004 but I'd never seen the mountain roadside in the Dauphiné. That had to change!

WINNER IS: TWO WEEKS RIDING IN ITALY!

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – I’m pleased to congratulate Glen Copus of Spokane WA as the winner of the biggest and coolest prize we’ve ever offered here on PEZ – two Weeks Riding In Italy!

Philly 2013: Photog’s View!

Photo Special: The Philadelphia International Cycling Championship was reborn as the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic this year and although the course has changed somewhat the action and the atmosphere on the Manayunk wall hasn't changed a bit.

Cinelli: The Art and Design of the Bicycle

One does not really expect a book about one of the most storied names in Italian cycling, famous for quill stems and cork handlebar tape, to begin with a discussion featuring a British fashion designer but when that designer is bike-mad Paul Smith and he is chatting with Antonio Colombo of the famous tubing dynasty you know that the way ahead will be eccentric, to say the least. “Cinelli” is an impressive and expensive book but just be prepared for a wild ride.

The Negroni Report 2012

I drank a lot of negronis this year – and what better way to relive the hilights than looking back through an ice filled glass of the capricious cocktail to some of the best moments - a satisfying mix of exotic locales, good friends, and even new tastes. May I present to you, some of my Top Negronis in 2012.

PEZ Goes Racing In France!

Racing in France. These three words bring forward childhood dreams or perhaps adulthood ones to any cycling fan, including the PEZ team! Nothing screams a cycling adventure quite like racing through the French mountains and our very own man in France, Chris Selden lived a racing experience there recently. Here's his story.
