Road Bike Across Kansas is a new blog geared to beginners. The blog author, Jackie, is new to cycling and says she absolutely loves it. "It's a really intimidating sport," she tells me, "so I am trying to cover the basics, including definitions and basic information about finding a great bike shop, choosing a bike, encouragement to get out and ride, as well as talking about my journey toward doing Bike Across Kansas in 2011." Check out Jackie's Kansas cycling blog and say hello when you have a chance.
