Mid-Atlantic / Riding the Divide: Guest Speaker Event
« on: August 01, 2018, 11:49:04 am »
So, here we are. Another summer cycling season is slowly, but surely winding down. Most of the big events have long since already started, or, will do so momentarily. Congratulations are extended to all those riders, who have successfully succeeded in conquering whatever specific challenge that saw them take part in. Job well done on your most incredible accomplishment!

For those looking ahead to actual 2019 participation, or perhaps, teetering on the edge of future commitment, there is an awesome opportunity coming up if you find yourself living in the greater Philadelphia area, to learn firsthand specifically all about the Tour Divide race, bikepacking & touring in general.

On Sunday, August 26, 2018, from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m., I (Richard S. Costello) will be the guest speaker at a *FREE* event being held at the L.L.Bean Saucon Valley retail store in Center Valley, Pennsylvania. The program titled: Riding the Divide – The Legendary Tour Divide Mountain Bike Race, will be the main topic of discussion.

If you are interested in attending what promises to be an informative & captivating talk, kindly visit L.L.Bean's event page at, where you will find all pertinent event information as well as how to R.S.V.P. your spot.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there.

New England / Bicycling the Erie Canal

Old canalways are a great place for bicyclists hands down. Such trails offer riders a unique opportunity to go out and cycle in some incredible portions of the countryside in the states of which they are found in. I have found that these rides to be a pleasurable experience on many various fronts, as well as being extremely safe too. I have taken my own experiences on several different historic canals, and combined my experiences in a new publication which highlights all the wonders that I have found throughout.

Cycling Events / Calling All East Coast Cyclists!

I encourage every, and any cyclist who lives near either the C & O Canal, or the Great Allegheny Passage routes, to come on out and ride along with me as I cycle on through from Washington DC, to Pittsburgh, starting this Wednesday morning(10/23). This is a historical effort taking place in that I will be carrying the official nomination ballot for the soon to be announced 2013 Mustached American of the Year Award winner, being crowned this coming Saturday up in the steel town. Whether you are a past/present/future TOUR DIVIDE rider, bikepacker, or just an all around cycling enthusiast, c'mon out and ride! I hope to see some of you out there. :)
