Although Laurent Fignon (above left) is our favorite rider; we are looking more for the temperament displayed in young LeMond (above right).  M. Fignon was brilliant and exciting, he was also temperamental and vain.

LeMond smiled through a lot of adversity, and let’s not forget who won in ’89.

Look, we understand that the list above is pretty long, and very varied, and don’t expect one person to be experienced in all.  That’s where the Old School Work Ethic kicks in.

Send a short statement of why you want the job along with C.V. to [email protected]

*** HELPFUL TIP: please go down the list above and report back ***

We all need some space.  In these strange times when a unique virus has shuttered my city, Chicago, and many others around the world, one of the more precious commodities is space, particularly outdoor space.  Yesterday, Chicago experienced one of those sunny, warm(ish) days that we always seem to get in March where throngs of […]

Texas Pick Up Almost Runs Over Children

One look at this video is all you need to see why this parent reached out to Bike Law with serious concerns about a Dallas driver. Even as a bike accident lawyer that has dealt with many cases of dangerous driving, this video made me shudder in fear. The cycling dad was riding with a […]
