Grippy Mountain Bike Shoes

Grippy Mountain Bike Shoes

Like many people during the pandemic, I decided to pick up a new hobby. With basically everything shut down, and the outdoors being one of the only relatively safe spaces available to us, my quest led me to mountain biking.

Memorial Day Default Madness

Memorial Day Default Madness

It’s the Friday before Memorial Day, a national holiday honoring all those who died while serving in the U.S. military. It’s also seven days before the United States hits the default wall. The reports coming out of Washington look positive, but this democratic sausage-making process is not for the faint of heart.
