BWCC Recap: New bike guides, new professor

img_bwccIf you haven't taken a stroll through Bikewagon Community College lately, you may be surprised to see how much our selection of courses and labs has grown! We're adding multiple guides and tutorial every week. Here is a quick look at some of the most recent additions.

 

Green cycling

For Earth Day a few weeks back, we published a helpful tutorial by Max Wilbert on how to be as environmentally friendly as possible when riding a bike. This is really good stuff from Max, and -- trust me -- there is no hypocrisy in this guide. He walks the walk.

 

How to care for your leather bike saddle

Lots of riders love leather, and for good reason! After an initial break-in period, it's about as comfortable and durable as you can get. This tutorial from Max teaches you how to care for your leather saddle properly so it lasts for years.

 

Cyclocross 101

Our newest faculty member, Chad Rector, is a cyclocross racer, and you can tell he's passionate and knowledgeable about the sport in this informative overview of the sport. Yes, I know it's not fall ('cross season), but this guide will help you think ahead and be ready to try something new later this year.

 

Cycling Shoes 101

This guide is geared toward those new cyclists who wonder if cycling shoes are really necessary and how in the world they can cost so much. Max walks us through the differences between mountain and road shoes, cleat compatibility and the features that go into that price tag.
