A quick little attempt at debunking some of those cycling rumors I hear floating around. Why shave my legs? Sunglasses + helmet straps? Easy training rides? Can you out train a bad diet?
My first bike was a 20” BMX-style bike, a Schwinn Predator. I rode it with training wheels at first, and it was the bike I learned to ride without training wheels on. I remember learning how to ride in the yard around our house, at a park, or on a neighborhood street.
The Olympics kick off Friday in PyeongChang, and my life has been tied to the Olympics since the beginning, particularly the Winter Games. I was born during the 1984 Winter Olympics held in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia. On the night I was born, Bill Johnson became the first American man to win an Olympic gold media in alpine skiing when he won the downhill. He was the first racer (male or female) from outside the Alps to win an Olympic downhill.
