Jake’s Journal: Great times for Garmin cycling in competitive & charitable rides


TGTredesign Ever since an engineer first strapped one of our outdoor handhelds to handlebars a few years ago, amazing things have been happening to Garmin and our friends on two wheels. GPS-enabled stats are now a must-have for serious cyclists, elite athletes use our Edge devices to train with power data, and commuters navigate to and from their destination with ease. Here are just a few recent highlights, including a redesigned Web site for Team Garmin that was timed perfectly for big news.

Sprinter Robbie Hunter, a new addition to Garmin-Transitions, outhustled an impressive field at the Vuelta a Murcia two days in a row for consecutive stage wins and the honor of donning the leader's yellow jersey. To say this week has been memorable for Robbie would be an understatement as he withdrew from the race when his wife went into labor with their second child.

Using our products to win races is always awesome news, but it's incredibly inspiring to play a role in various charitable efforts. One such event that we're thrilled to be a part of is the Echelon Gran Fondo Series, where cyclists of all skill levels will ride various distances in a festive atmosphere to raise money for cancer survivors, cancer treatment and research. For information about the events in Napa Valley (5/23) and the Portland area (9/26), where pro cyclists Lucas Euser and Chris Horner were recently announced as ride ambassadors, visit www.echelongranfondo.org.
