Little Pony Crashes Professional Cycling Race

A pro-cycling competition last Thursday was joined by an unwelcome competitor, a little cute pony. The little pony ran into the road and started galloping alongside the riders on the Tour de Pologne, which is held annually in Poland.

The video from Gazprom–RusVelo cycling team’s Facebook page captures the show pony joining the sixth leg of the Tour de Poland, jockeying for position with other cyclist as they swerved to stay stable.

The animal was in the running for around a minute, before one of the riders guided it off to a side-street.

Robstep X1 Electric Bike Folding Scooter Ebike, Portable, Lightweight, Quick Charge Battery, Bluetooth Speakers $499.99

The AK1 high speed electric mobility scooter is really high-tech it would really impress your friends and co-workers. It's great for traveling small distances, if you don't like to walk. It is very stylish with futuristic design. The surprising feature of this scooter is it automatically folds by itself. There's a button to automatically fold the scooter, the makers said that the idea was inspired by the movie Transformers, in which cars effortlessly change shapes.

The scooter weighs 22kg and since it can be folded to half its size, it is easy to carry with you and can fit in your car trunk with a lot of space to spare. It is powered by a 350W electric motor that can give you a maximum speed of 30Km/h not bad for a scooter that size. It is also equipped with gears that allow you to choose your riding style that matches the terrain and your riding skills.

The AK1 scooter has 12 inch tires with front shock absorber that's useful to have a pleasurable ride on any road condition. It also has a large leather seat for comfort. It is also equipped with front and rear double disc brakes to give your the breaking power you need to keep your safe.

According to the manufacturer it has a strong body frame and can carry two (2) passengers easily and safely. It also comes with a remote control to lock and unlock the scooter for theft deterrent. If it's on lock mode and someone touches the scooter an alarm will go off and it will lock the motor automatically. The battery cannot be removed once the scooter is locked that makes it virtually theft-proof.

It is also equipped with a luminous LCD dashboard to give the rider information like speed, range, battery life and others. There's also a USB charging port below the dashboard. It has Bluetooth capability. The headlights is really bright so you won't have problems traveling at night. The rear lights is also bright giving the rider the visibility it needs for traveling safely at night.

The scooter can travel a distance of about 45KM on a fully charged battery. The battery can be easily removed, for an easy and safe charging. It has the space for two (2) batteries if you want to double the range that it can travel.

It's small, mobile, fold-able scooter what can you ask for? My only worry is how sturdy it is specially the seat since it doesn't have a post to support the weight of the rider.

Lead acid batteries are not bad, they just don’t have the same performance features of a lithium ion battery pack. Some e-bikes and kits offer the ability to upgrade to a lithium ion pack.  You could start out with a lead acid battery pack and later upgrade to a lithium ion pack if you find that you would like a lighter battery with a longer life span.

World Naked Bike Ride In Kent

WNBRs, naked bike ride, nude bike ride

World Naked Bike Ride UK will held two rides in Kent this summer in Folkestone and Canterbury. The World Naked Bike Ride is yearly ride held throughout the world to give awareness to improve the safety and road condition for cyclists, and criticize the world's reliance on fossil fuels.

The naked ride in Folkestone will be held on July 1, 2017, while the date for the Canterbury ride is May 27, 2017. This will be the 6th naked ride in Canterbury while fourth in Folkestone.

Organisers for the Canterbury ride said: "Sadly, too many cyclists are injured or killed in road traffic collisions across the UK every day. Kent, and the Canterbury area are, regrettably, included in this grim statistic.

"The most common excuse given by motorists who have just killed a cyclist is "I didn't see them". Strangely, the WNBRs across the world have proved that naked cyclists ARE seen and not ignored."

"Nudity is permitted as part of the demonstration to emphasize the vulnerability of the human body when faced with the everyday dangers of cycling on the UK roads.

"Nudity is not compulsory - all WNBRs ask participants to ride "as bare as you dare" and many use body paint to decorate themselves or to paint appropriate slogans on their body."

Buzzfeed and HuffingtonPost Food and lifestyle blogger Jane Seo finished second-place in the Fort Lauderdale A1A Half Marathon last weekend with a time of 1 hour 21 minutes. She hit 6:15-per-mile pace. She was seen parading around the finish line grinning and gripping with her medal.

Unfortunately, for her a part-time marathon watchdog blogger Derek Murphy was on her and busted her for cheating, she cut 1.5 miles off her course while securing her 1:21:46 finish. Not only did she cut the course, she covered her tracks on a bike later that afternoon to throw off her GPS tracker.

Seo has now been disqualified for cutting the course, after being busted. You can find a long post on detailing her lies. She later posted a four-paragraph apology to her 34,400 Instagram followers.

“I made a HORRIBLE choice .. what an idiot I was!” she wrote in a post that's since been taken down. “I am extremely ashamed … I am so sorry everyone.”
Jane Seo huffingtonpost, Jane Seo Buzzfeed, Jane Seo cheater
Derek Murphy even showed photos taken right after the race, in which Seo watch displayed a covered distance of 11.65 miles, the course was a full two miles longer. When he checked her mile splits, he found that she ran the first 10 kilometers at a pace of 7:09 per mile; her speed increased on the back half, lowering her minute-mile pace to 5:25 on the back 11 kilometers.

Murphy then discovered that she had manually entered her splits on Strava (a website for runners looking to track their runs via GPS and post their maps and times) directly after the race. Seo went back and made another entry the same afternoon, this one linked to GPS, showing that she had run the entire course. However, upon reviewing her pace and heart rate, Murphy saw that her cadence better matched that of a bike rider than a runner.

How To Buy A Used Bike?

 used bikes, second hand bikes

If you're short on cash and wanted to buy a great bike then the only option is to buy used bikes. Unfortunately, in the second hand market there are a lot of bikes that needs fixing so instead of saving money you'll end up shelling out more. Check out the video above as ex-Professional cyclist Simon Richardson discuss what to look out for when buying a second hand bike.

He also said to have a check list of the following components:

Frame & Forks - this is the most valuable part of the bike. It should not be bent, cracked, or dented. It should not be rusted, look for bubbling in the paint it a sign of corrosion. If it's a carbon bike watch out for those cracks.

Headset - check if it has a loose headset by squeezing the breaks then rock the bike backwards and forwards, if you hear a knocking noise then it may have a loose headset. It's easy to fix and cheap to replace but it's a sign that the owner didn't maintain it very well.

Wheels - make sure that it runs straight by spinning it. Check spoke tensions, they should be tight. Check out the rim breaking surface, it should be flat if it's concave then it may suggest that it is already worn out. This could be really expensive to replace.  

Wheel Bearings - grab the tires the move the wheel from side to side if there are any play and knocking it may suggest that the wheel bearings are worn out.

Tyres - inspect the tires, watch out for cuts and holes.

Driverain - check out for worn out chains, chainrings, and cassette.    

Derailleurs - check by changing gears also check for the gear cables.

Cranks - move side to side, if there's a play then it may be worn out.

Brakes - squeeze the calipers it should move easily and should spring back easily.

Top 3 Lightweight Disc Brakes

There are a lot of debate regarding lightweight disc brakes. Do you really need them are they essential or just a waste of money and time.

Well, either way lightweight disc brakes are becoming more and more popular. Bicycle companies are starting to release re-designed bikes that is specifically built to accommodate the additional braking power.

Speed is useless if you don't have control, which is why the faster you go the better your brakes need to be. And the best way to stop a speeding bike smoothly is with hydraulic disc brakes. So let's look at the top 3 Lightweight Disc Brakes currently on the market.

Shimano SLX M675, bike brakes

Shimano SLX M675 - offers top quality performance at a mid-range price. The levers are broad, deeply crooked and get extra grip dimples and it has a big reach adjuster dial on the knuckle.

It has the "Ice Technology" that significantly reduces heat build-up in the brake system . It has an updated lever/piston pivot with ServoWave mechanism to connect to the master cylinder, which means better pad clearance for quieter, cleaner running, as well as increased power at the contact point. The 2-finger tool-free reach/free-stroke adjustable lever blade give better ergonomics and increased power.

Formula R1 Disc Brake, bike brakes

Formula R1 Disc Brake - it is one of the lightest serial disc brake on the market today. Custom tuning can bring down the stock weight of 298 grams by further 16 grams. Despite being lightweight it can give more than enough power and performance for an All Mountain or Enduro use. The forged master cylinder body and caliper provide increased modulation, braking power and durability, while the R1’s patented caliper piston system increases fluid capacity in the caliper providing stability and fade resistance even on long descents.

 SRAM Guide RSC S4, bike brakes

SRAM Guide RSC S4 - this is a very expensive piece of equipment but latest updates make them unbeatable for outstandingly consistent braking. It gives you power, consistency, and modulation. The S4 caliper has a fuss-free bleed port and a redesigned fluid path within the caliper to aid oil flow and banish bubbles too. The weight is just average.
