Scott Panzerella, owner of Studio Velo in Mill Valley, California, recently crossed one more item off his bucket list: the Leadville 100 bike race. This is the story of his road to Leadville.
Leadville, Colorado nicknamed “the two-mile-high city,” is the highest incorporated city in the country. Sitting at 10,152 feet above sea level, this oxygen-depleted ghost town was once the second most populated town in Colorado, next to Denver. That was back in 1880 during the Colorado silver boom when Leadville …
Sometimes the greatest inspirations and ideas are borne on the wings of suffering… Today, the day after Thanksgiving, my intent was simply to ride my bike with no destination in mind except for the valley of suffering. It’s 8 am; it’s cold, wet and grey with plenty of hills on the menu. But, hey, this is NorCal cycling and I am Velocurean, it’s simple, I ride, endure and grow stronger; it’s what we do.
Yeah, right! It’s simple except for the fact that it’s late November, cold and wet in the …

Fellowship can best described as the state of sharing mutual interests, experiences, and activities. This is what we aimed and hoped for, and this is what we achieved on the inaugural ride of the Velocurean Bicycle and Social Club.
For our first ride we invited Chandon Clenard, Executive Chef at Pacific Catch, to be our guest. Our ride began in Corte Madera and continued around the Tiburon peninsula on Paradise drive and concluded at Pacific Catch in Corte Madera for lunch with Chef Chandon.
The day started as most Northern California summer …

On September 13, 2008 San Francisco hosted its first and only Twilight Criterium. The eight-block course in Cow Hollow was packed with some of the best talent on the west coast, and it was the women’s field that was truly impressive. Starting with two time Olympian and 2004 time trial champion Christine Thorbur of team Webcor, Canadian Olympian Gina Grain also of team Webcor and long time veteran Laura Van Gilder, but the reason I was there was Liz Hatch of team Vanderkitten. As the women lined up for the …

Although it’s fairly common for bike shops to host Demo events, product launch parties and weekly group rides, I really can’t think of one that has put the recipe together quite as Velocurean as Studio Velo in Mill Valley. On Sunday April 3, 2011 with chef Chris Dressick on the “Rapha Patio” serving up Belgian beer, brats and frites, Studio Velo welcomed Ridley Bikes to the showroom floor.
“On all Ridley frames we follow one design philosophy – ‘FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION.’ Every tube shape, frame construction and geometry is chosen for …

Randy Bramblett and I decided to meet at Pasta Pomodoro at five pm in Laurel Village and I show up a little early so I can choose the table for the interview. A waiter brings me a menu, a glass of water and some bread with a garlic pesto dip. I order a Lagunitas IPA and look over the menu. Pasta Pomodoro is a restaurant that is required to put the calories of their dishes on the menu; it can be eye opening to say the least. I was looking …
