finding the fun in fondo

This past weekend, thousands of cyclists took to the Sea to Sky Highway here in Vancouver to ride the third annual Whistler GranFondo. We’re talking about a 120K, mostly uphill climb. One of our writers, Ella, rose to the challenge and shared the ten things she was thinking about between moments of telling her legs […]

creatures of the night

While we are busy catching precious Zs, more than just raccoons are roaming the city streets. From rollerbladers to bikers to runners – groups of people all over the world are coming together at the darkest of hours to explore a whole ‘nutha level of nightlife fun. Who knew?

keeping your sweet ride sweet

A few weeks ago, the lululemon lab hosted a 101 on bike maintenance with support from a local bike shop. Here’s a few of the things we learned when it comes to keeping our sweet ride, sweet. tired out you know it’s time to replace your tires when… • The rubber looks cracked • The treads […]

meet the bmc men’s cycling team

meet the specialized-lululemon team

The minute we mixed all-star athletes and badass bikes we were bound to develop a schoolgirl crush (sweat is the way to our heart, after all). We are beyond stoked to support the Specialized-lululemon cycling team so we jumped at the first chance to spend a little one-on-one time with them. We headed down to […]

running tips: how to cross train

letter to the light up cycling clothing line

Dear Light Up Cycling Line, I heart you big time. Here are the top 6 reasons why (that’s right, I couldn’t stop at 5): reflective taping 1. It may be obvious, but the reflective taping on the back is awesome. On my white jersey, you can’t even see the taping until light hits it. The […]
