Rapha 50/50 test – Show don’t tell

By | January 28, 2011

It’s officially winter in Toronto. That time of year when many people believe outdoor physical activity grinds to a halt. It’s that time of year when excuses are passed off as reasons and it’s that time of year when I keep on doing what I do… riding my bicycle. In the spirit of “how to [...]
