Welcome to SmithCycling.com. We are not elite racers but “real” people interested in bicycling. Our goal is to provide insight and inspiration to the majority of cyclist around the world who are not “pro” cyclists. We have a real passion for cycling and we put many hours and miles on our bikes every year. Although we are Cat 4 and 5 racers, we do this only as motivation to keep riding. There are many sources on the internet that provide an “elite” racer’s perspective of bicycling, but we found very few that focused on the “average” cycling enthusiast. So, whether you race on the weekend or just stroll down the bike path, we hope to provide you with valuable information to make your experience much more enjoyable … or inspire you to ride just one more mile.
