Cyclists around the world ride faster, farther with Garmin Edge 705


Garminracing2 Spitz Time to check in with cyclists across the globe who are relying on Garmin's Edge 705 to get the most out of their training, touring and racing. While Team Garmin-Slipstream enjoys a brief offseason, American sprinting sensation Tyler Farrar just wrapped up a meet-and-greet at Cycle University in West Seattle, near his hometown of Wenatchee. We'll be announcing another chance for fans to meet Tyler, so stay tuned. Many of Tyler's fans are in the Washington State Bicycle Association, and we had a chance to sponsor more great cycling through the WSBA's Garmin Series for CAT4 women. "I was this year’s winner for the 2009 Garmin Series," wrote Jennifer Hamilton, pictured at left, "and I believe that because of your generous sponsorship, it helped to get more women out racing more often this year. I'm proof of that, I ended up racing a total of 30 races this year. The Garmin 705 is a wonderful new addition to my cycling gear and I’m amazed at all of the features it has. Thank you again for your investment to our women's racing community. It's because of you that the WSBA can continue to develop and support new bike racers and improve the quality of women’s bike racing in the Pacific Northwest." Congratulations, Jennifer, and thanks for sharing the highlights video from the races!

Garmin's work with women's cycling obviously goes far beyond Washington, as our technology is on the handlebars of the world's best in mountain biking. German cross-country cyclist Sabine Spitz, the 2008 gold medalist in Beijing and 2009 world champion, has been busy with her Edge 705. Sabine, pictured above right, tracks her training on Garmin Connect and shares her data on Twitter. But don't think that Edge 705 is just for racing. Our friends Mollie and Geraldine at and Conde Nast Traveler used their 705's mapping and navigation features to plan an awe-inspiring two-month bike tour of the south, fueled by curiosity and motivated by culinary delicacies. Read their blog, and join us in envying their adventures.
