Cycling is a great sport. Its a great workout, fun, social, and can take you to places you would never go otherwise. Another plus for a gadget-junkie like me, is that cycling is a very gadget conscious sport. Whether it be cyclometers, tools, bags, or any other type of accessories, the possibilities of cycling related products are practically endless. Below are some of my favorite, which I use almost every time I cycle. They've helped make my cycling this past summer and this winter even better than it would have been.
Portable DVD Player

Living in New England means I have to deal with long, cold, and harsh winters. This means no outdoor cycling. As a result, I switch to indoor cycling for the winter months. While I love riding road bikes, itjust isn't the same inside. Without the scenery, passing cars, houses, and wildlife, riding indoors can be pretty mundane. Thankfully, my portable DVD player helps me to get through indoor cycling with ease. It's nothing special, just a simple portable DVD player that works remarkably well for cycling entertainment. not only do I now watch more movies, but I cycle more because it is more fun.
I do wish my particular DVD player had a slightly larger screen, but even at 7″, it is still sufficient for my uses.
Note: i received a review sample of Action Wipes after being contacted by their founder @MarthaVan on Twitter, however after testing them I would not hesitate to purchase them for myself, or recommend them to others.
There is no way around it, motocross is a dirty sport. Whether the track is muddy or dry, coming off the track with a dirty, grimy face is commonplace for serious motocross racers. While most riders choose to clean up with water after a moto, the truth is that there are better options available. One of these options is Action Wipes, a fairly new product From Life Elements, Inc. Action Wipes are a revolutionary new wet wipe designed specifically for high intensity athletes made from natural ingredients. I recently tried action wipes after my daily road bike roller rides, and I have loved them so far. Unfortunately, because it is not motocross season, I was unable to test them for motocross use, but I am convinced that they would perform just as well in a motocross setting.
Although it may seem like a relatively materialistic concern, the packing of a product not only affects users preconceived notions of the product, but also shows the companies attention to detail when designing their products. I used the 5 pack, and the packing was phenomenal. The plastic was very thick and durable, the logos bright and well designed. The best part was that the bag was re-closable which makes it very convenient to store Action Wipes wherever you may need them. The Zip-lock style bag holds in the moisture of the wipes well and keeps the slightly strong scent contained.
