'Because I Can': Cyclist Kristin Armstrong Wins Third Gold Medal At Age 42

Cyclist Kristin Armstrong has a regular job and a son. And as of today, she also has three Olympic gold medals.

"Why she's come out of retirement and still wants to compete at an elite level despite her age and the several hip surgeries ....... Armstrong said, but she adds that she has only one reply: "Because I can."
"She doesn't have glitzy endorsement deals that make her a household name. ....She was allowed to cut her hours down to 16 hours a week last fall, she said, so her family's health insurance would remain in effect while she trained for the Rio Summer Games. Her son, Lucas, was born in 2010."

"These benefits come in the form of a crash detection alert – which senses if the cyclist has a crash and sends out a text message to a nominated contact with the rider’s location – and theft deterrent, which alerts the owner’s phone if their bike is being tampered with."

17,000 km in 7 months: Shop owner pedals from Bangladesh to New Zealand - The Times of India

Vada pao does not taste the same in Thailand. Mahabharat is Indonesia's favourite TV show. Navi Mumbai has more people than New Zealand. Maggi can save your life. Given all that it has taught him about the world in the last seven months, Rajesh Khandekar's modest bicycle might as well have wings.

Lalka, I was reminded of the story you told me about your dad biking through states.

Science of Cycling: Human Power | Exploratorium

© The bicycle is a tremendously efficient means of transportation. In fact cycling is more efficient than any other method of travel--including walking! The one billion bicycles in the world are a testament to its effectiveness. The engine for this efficient mode of transport is the human body.

"One hundred calories can power a cyclist for three miles, but it would only power a car 280 feet (85 meters)!"

Five-time Philadelphia winner Ina Teutenberg previews Philly Cycling Classic

The sixth round of the UCI Women Road World Cup series has been billed as a new addition to the women's calendar, but those who have followed cycling beyond the last decade know that the Philly Cycling Classic has a long-standing history in the sport.

“Most people who haven’t raced that long won’t know the history of the race,” noted Teutenberg. “It has always been an important race in women’s cycling. It has a good atmosphere in a great city. It’s a really fun race.”

Vidushi Sharma

Vidushi Sharma I would really love to get into biking, but there are a few problems- I have no experience (besides taking my old bike around campus), I don't have a high quality bike, I am not aware of safe cycling practices on the road, and I don't know where to go (I live in Northern NJ). What would you recommend?
