Fall Cycling Tips

The Satorialist
The weather is starting to feel a bit like fall. Although it makes for lovely cycling, I got started on thinking ahead about preparing for darker days and cooler rides. So in all preparation for fall, start grabbing your things to prepare for cooler weather rides and remember that a freshly tuned up bike, helmet, and bike lights are essential for safety on the road as it starts to get darker earlier.  Ready to get your fall sweaters, reflective gear, and boots together? Consider these roundup links and tips a friendly reminder to cycle safely and warmer while you cool into fall.

Adventures In California

Hey all, I just returned to New England from 'vacationing' solo back home in California and I'm having major sunshine withdrawals as we are having overcast skies and storms here. Although it's nice to be reunited with familiar faces and one special fluffy four legged puppy baby, I can't stop thinking about the pure love from family and friends from back home. Dorothy said it right... there is no place like home.

My time back in California is always special as I get to revisit old stomping grounds while exploring places I have yet to see. During this stay, I did everything from beach bumming, mountain climbing, dancing at a music festival, eating tacos, drinking taquila, laughing, and taking a drivers test. That's right, I returned to the East Coast as a California licensed driver.

There is so much I can share here but I would rather you see it for yourself over on Instagram. Don't forget to follow me along my adventures, there is so much more to share.

City Guide: South East Connecticut

I currently live in a little quaint New England seaside town tucked away in the southeast corner of Connecticut, just a few miles from the Rhode Island state line. It may seem like an area full of old timers and historical buildings, however, summer here is the greatest time of the year that gives this place it's vibrancy and charm. Before my partner and I moved out of Brooklyn, we would occasionally spend weekends here to get away from the Big Apple hustle and bustle. What we didn't know is that we would end up finding ourselves living here. Being inclined to wander every where we go, we founds a few things we love to do here, even by bike.

Adventures In Italy

Italy. A country of divine landscapes, delicious food and wine, and sheer love for biking. Never had I thought that I would find so much enthusiasm for biking as when I visited the city of Lucca. I was enamored not only with the city and lovely people, but also with how everyone bikes there. Where there are rows of bikes, chic women in heels and friends gather around on bicycles to shop, chat, and simply enjoy the city. This city is really no place for cars as streets are narrow and only suitable for walkers and bikers. The ideal place for me. If you ever want to visit Italy and have a bike adventure, go to Lucca by all means. Sit at a cafe and watch locals stroll by with a glass of Tuscan wine.

Renting a bike here is so easy, there are rental stations almost on every corner just outside of Lucca that connect you to green bike paths around the city. Biking is truly the best way to navigate throughout as it is a city surrounded by walls with gorgeous views.

I don't want to make this post all about my experience in Italy, as there were so many and I have a lot of pictures. Please feel free to visit my Instagram where you can get a glimpse of my current travels.

Adventures in New England

With so much of summer here, I've been taking it upon myself to enjoy the coastal life on two wheels. New England is a whole new park for me. With country and coastal views, riding here is almost like a scenic dream. There is nothing more I love than being able to jump on my bike and ride through these green hills with a view of the ocean and sail boats whizzing by.
