Update: Ottolock bike lock

ottolock coy I have not had many opportunities to use the Ottolock, partly due to a busy schedule that has limited my riding opportunities, but also because when I did squeeze in an hour ride here and there I didn’t need to lock my bike.  I did manage to use the lock three times.  You can read my findings here.

LOWA goes to Iceland

I just got back from an amazing trip to Iceland.  We camped and hiked for 6 days, and I am already thinking about how soon I could go back!  We walked, hiked and climbed a LOT. I was fortunate to be reviewing a pair of LOWA Aerox GTX Surrounds while there.  Read about how they worked out HERE.

Sunglasses are an essential part of my kit.  My eyes are very sensitive to light and even in overcast conditions I wear sunglasses, or I end up squinting which leads to headaches.  adidas has become a player in the performance eyewear market and I will be reviewing their Evil Eye Evo Pro glasses over the next few months.  Read on for my initial thoughts.

Update on the Funkier Luciana Women’s Short Sleeve Jersey

Right after receiving the Luciana women’s short sleeve jersey by Funkier I ended up having a back procedure that has kept me from exercising until the past week. During the past week I wore the jersey twice on a 15-mile road bike ride and a 9-mile mixed terrain ride. Check out my thoughts on this jersey thus far.

Bio Shield provided the insect spray for review purposes.

Bio Shield spray was developed by a group of pharmacists to deal with insects. They discovered that insects develop a neurotransmitter called octopamine. The formula used in this product blocks the production of octopamine which in turn controls the nervous system and breathing of insects. This provides a quick way to disable the insects. For those of us who appreciate natural products, the active ingredients are all natural. This means it is safe for pets and children. Pepper is a natural ingredient that you would not want to make contact with your eyes. This product has similar warnings. To read more please click here.
