      You Can Ride!

       

      Frequently, I hear from women that come into our shop

       
      “I’m not really a cyclist”
      “I’m not really strong enough to ride in a group”
      “Surely , I’m not as strong as everyone else”
      “I don’t want to hold anyone up”
       

      For this and many other reasons, our staff decided to host the Pedal Chic Summer Training Team.  We want to provide a fun, motivating and encouraging training environment to build your confidence on the bike. 

      Be good to YOU…It’s Not just okay, It’s Imperative

      I know - another one of “those” messages.  Everyone always telling us that as women we need to make ourselves a priority.  But in reality it is difficult.  And I am the world’s worst offender.

      It's not what you lose, It's what you gain

      Posted on

      I love my body. It pushes me up hills and balances me on two wheels as I propel myself from place to place. It is strong, it is tough, and it is pretty damn amazing. I’ve lost weight since starting cycling, but most importantly I have realized how strong I am, and that I am capable of more than I ever thought I could achieve.

      Christmas Memories…

      As I was decorating the tree this year, it always brings floods of memories.  Our tree
      is full of baubles that tell the story of my family and work life.  As a mom, former
      handbag designer, and now bike shop owner, the tree is an expression of my eclectic
      life.

      I saw this today and it struck a cord inside.  Not only because my team has been encouraging me (read: screaming daily)  to get my voice back through the blog, but because it is a truly powerful statement.

      Commuter Method: Rainy Day

      Posted on

      Monday morning's monsoon brought an interesting challenge to my daily commute. Despite riding for transportation almost daily since I moved to Greenville in May, I've only been caught in the rain on two occasions. Looking at the radar for Monday morning, I knew this would a third, and more intense, ride in the rain.

      Posted on

      Fall Weather has officially arrived, although we're trying to pretend that Saturday morning we didn't wake up to 3 inches of snow here in Greenville! Thankfully the highs are back up to the 70s this week, making it the perfect weather to throw on a sweater and leggings, grab a PSL (we had to say it), and hit the town on a bike!
