5-29-2016 Masters Nationals Congratulations to two more Georgia riders that brought home National Championships last week at the Masters National Championships! Time Trial: Chris Mojock (Cherry St. Bicycles) won the Men’s 35-39.  Brendan Sullivan (Lupus Racing) won his umpteeth national title in the Men 50-54. I brought home 11th in the Master Women 40-44. WHAT? Trish doing a road time trial. My first in 5-6 years! I sold my TT bike last year, so I did it on my endurance road bike complete with hydraulic disk brakes. A friend loaned me aerobars. Thanks to CX, I own a (I mean way to many) skinsuit.

Qloom Review I had the pleasure of working with Swiss bike wear company Qloom to review their Bondi Premium Kit. Qloom was started in Switzerland in 2006. Their philosophy is have a good time on the mountain bike trail with friends. “When you have nothing to do with what you’re doing. You’re just doing it.” Their clothing line is surf inspired, which can be seen in the bright colors and patterns. You may ask why I chose to review more of a race kit than the casual riding clothes. It fits my style. I’m racer. I wear lycra, and I have a lot of things to compare the kit to.

The Qloom kit came beautifully packaged in a logo drawstring pack. The packaging felt luxurious. There was a personalized message in the package for me. Every customer can expect handwritten note the Surf The Trail shipping card. The kit is beautiful! The dark blue highlight by bright pink stands out. I had several people ask which brand it was. The styling is quite different than you usually see on the road or trail.


Qloom Bondi Premium jersey.

My thoughts trying on the jersey was that it runs pretty true to size. It’s a close fit. As a racer, I prefer that to a looser fit. The fabric feels very soft and light, which is great for warm Georgia weather. Because of the light material, I see this more as a 3 season jersey. I’d want something thicker in the winter. I could tell that this was a premium quality kit. My race team is sponsored by a high end custom clothing company, and the Qloom kit is comparable in quality. The jersey is nice and stretchy. Walking around, it looked great. On the bike it was very comfortable. The stretch moved with my body. The body hugging style may not be for everyone, but as a racer I like it. There is a bit of extra room in the shoulder area, which I appreciated. The jersey never moved around thanks to the gripper on the bottom hem. The pockets were average size. Since it is warm here now I did not weigh them down, but one morning they easily held a pair of arm warmers, my phone, and several Gus. There is a water resistant zippered pocket on the right, which Qloom calls the “communications pocket” for a phone.


The Bondi Premium jersey in action.

I am a size large in almost any brand’s shorts. I had to size down to a medium for the Bondi shorts. The leg bands and waist were a bit too loose in the large; the medium was a perfect fit. I talked to one of the Qloom brand ambassadors. She said that she is in between sizes (S/M) and went with the medium shorts. She commented that the kit was “not too tight and not too loose.” I found the chammy thick enough to provide support but not too thick. The placement was good as well. The grippers kept the legs in place. I did not have any ride up. The waist is a bit higher cut than some other shorts, but I didn’t mind it. The yoga style waist band is comfortable and does not bind.

Overall, this is a premium quality kit with a price to match. If you sign up for the Qloom mailing list, you can get 20% off of your first order (as of 5-15-2016). I’d also recommend checking out the Qloom casual mountain bike clothing.

5-13-2016 Brookhaven Construciton It’s summer, and construction is in full swing! A lot of group rides use this route in Brookhaven. I found this on Facebook. “Construction on E. Brookhaven Dr. NE between Brookhaven Dr. NE and Mabry (east side of Capital City Club GC) starting Monday, May 16 through Thursday, May 26. Two weeks of a workaround. Please share around.”

5-12-2016 Silk Sheets Paving Head’s up if you are going to be riding Silk Sheets in the next week! From the City of Chatt Hills: “Roadway repair and paving will begin tomorrow, Thursday, May 12 on Cochran Mill Rd at Hutcheson Ferry Rd. Repair and paving is expected to be completed by Wednesday, May 18th. Similar repairs and paving will take place on Waterworks Rd, also, and should be completed by Friday, May 20th. One-way closure of roadways will be in effect during these times—residents and commercial traffic are advised to use alternate routes.” Waterworks Road might as well be gravel at this point it’s so bad!

5-11-2016 Lake Forest & Mt. Paran I heard from a group ride that the Atlanta Police Dept. pulled them over this week for not stopping at the stop sign at Lake Forest and Mt. Paran. It’s always in your best interested to stop at traffic signals.

5-10-2016 Cochran Mill Park Workday From the Trail Fairies: Enjoying the awesome new trails at Cochran Mill Park? Come out Saturday May 14th and help trim the brush back from the Red Trails before someone gets eaten alive. Meet at the kiosk in the main parking lot at 9am. Bring an extra pair of loppers if you have them. You will also need bug spray, closed toe shoes, gloves, water and a snack. Plan to be at on the trail till about noon. Some may want to ride their bikes to 5 turn hill trail to work there.

5-3-2016 Rosskopf’s Bike Georgia resident Joey Rosskopf races for the World Tour team BMC. Velonews profile his bike this weekend.

Bike Park Openings I don’t usually cover much of the freeride/enduro/DH racing other than listing the race dates on the calendars. I’ve had a few people ask me about bike parks that they can go ride at in the Southeast. Bailey Mountain Bike Park in Western NC is probably the biggest in the Southeast. They offer DH (downhill) & Enduro style riding as well as the Gravity Academy clinics and races. Kolo Bike Park near downtown Asheville, NC offers flow trails, pump tracks, and skills features for all levels of rider. Sugar Mountain is also in western NC and offers a lift to the DH trails on the weekends in season. Winrock in Eastern TN offers DH. In the metro Atlanta area several trails offer freeride areas or pump track including Big Creek in Roswell (DH/Enduro/pumptrack), Rope Mill (flow trails), Allatoona (Voodoo Trail/MoFlo), and Blanket’s Creek (Quehl Holler). I’m not aware of any bike parks in Georgia or Alabama. Singletracks.com has the opening dates listed across the country. Please note that some of the bike parks like Bailey Mountain require a full face helmet, pads, and a long travel bike. See their websites for more details. The metro Atlanta trail features can be done on whatever mtb you have. I’ve ridden them all on my 29ner hardtail.

5-2-2016 Kurt Kegel’s Passing  The NGCA team and the Webb Bridge Ride are sad to let everyone know that NCGA member Kurt Kegel passed away from a heart attack during the Webb Bridge ride on Saturday. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

4-28-2016 Ride Review – Endurance House/Bike Alpharetta Bike Alpharetta and Endurance House team up on Wednesday evenings to offer a ride that caters to all levels. There are 5 rides with Black (18+ mph, drop), Brown (16-17 mph), Green (15-16 mph), Yellow (14-15 mph), and White (13-14 mph). Each ride has a leader that keeps the pack  mainly together. Black, Brown, and Green do different routes than Yellow and White. Since I did intervals on Tuesday night, I opted to ride with the Yellow group. Walter kept us together, and we regrouped at stop signs. The pace was a bit higher than advertised at about 16 mph. The route is rolling with a couple of decent climbs, so 16 mph did not feel hard to me. I really enjoyed the group! If you are on the north side of town, this is a good ride to check out. Quite a few of the riders go to dinner afterwards for social time.

4-26-2016 DLV The Keirin From the DLV: Back for 2016 is Dick Lane Velodrome’s Pro Race Series (PRS). This Saturday, April 30 is the Keirin!
