A 6-Week Cycling Training Plan for Speed, Strength, and Endurance

Millions of people own bicycles, and just about everyone who has one knows how to pedal it around the block. But surprisingly few people take full advantage of all that riding has to offer. For those who haven’t yet tapped into cycling’s benefits, the list is long: It burns calories at a steady clip, helps reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease, improves your memory and brain power, and makes for deeper and more recharging sleep. It’s gentle on the joints—and maybe most important of all, riding is fun…

Surprising Ways An Electric Bike Affects The Environment

An electric bicycle could be your one-way ticket to eco-friendly glory. In a time of rapid technological change and economic globalization, individual choices impact the environment more than ever. Fortunately, public concern for the state of the planet has led to greater interest in two key areas: renewable energy and green transportation, such as commuting by electric bicycle.

The rise of the electric bike has many urban commuters thinking about ditching their carbon-intensive cars for cleaner transportation. Are electric bikes actually better for the environment? Are there any hidden catches, like the carbon footprint of their manufacturing process?

The Electra: A bike designed for the rest of us

It’s springtime. You’re starting to see them everywhere: the girl on the Electra pink Hawaii, the dude wheeling down the Crystal Pier on his Tiger Shark beach cruiser, the aging hipster-prof pulling up to the Pannikin coffeehouse on his retro-modern Italian Ticino.

It’s a revolution in casual wheels led by Benno Baenziger, 47, Electra Bicycle’s co-founder.

Headquartered in Vista, Electra is now one of the largest bike companies in California, selling more than 100,000 bikes a year. Baenziger is the inventor of the Townie, a bike, he likes to say, that is “for the rest of us, not just for Lance’s friends,” meaning racer Lance Armstrong, of course…
