2014 Lake Sonoma Series

Matt emailed in to give us the scoop on this year’s Lake Sonoma Series:

Do you like your singletrack more twisted than Dee Snider?  Come to where the flavor is…The 2014 Lake Sonoma XC Race Series .  Dates are set for March 22, May 24, and June 14.  The series benefits the NorCal High School Cycling League.  The vibe is low-key and relaxed.   We had tons of fun last year, nothing but smiling faces.  $30 gets you the race, lunch, gear raffle, beer (generously provided by Lagunitas Brewing), and all the endorphins you can secrete.   For more info, check us out on Facebook.

The individual races are on the calendar.

It's official:

Nope, you didn’t read that wrong: SoNoMas is taking a year off. There was a lot that didn’t make sense about this one this time around, including rolling up against a busy MTB race calendar before the heat really rises in July.

However, the rest of the schedule is up on calendar:

  • 05/02/14: Boggs Enduro
  • 06/28/14: Skyline Park XC MTB Race
  • 08/16/14: Annadel XC

There will also be the weekly Howarth Park Dirt Crits.

Xlerad Kickstarter Ending

It’s down to the last few hours, go over and give this NorCal-based Kickstarter a look:

Logo

Two local entrepreneurs launched a funding campaign on Kickstarter.com Friday in hopes of raising at least $18,300 to take their innovative bike light design to the next level.Business partners

John Nicolini and Kyle Palmer both have a passion for bikes, and they have brought together their engineering and manufacturing experience to create the Xlerad bike light. The Xlerad (pronounced ik-sel-RAD) can light a cyclist’s path without needing adjustments or even buttons because it features smart sensors to detect current cycling conditions. When a cyclist needs more light, the Xlerad brightens, and it dims when less light is needed.

The co-creators decided to launch their Kickstarter campaign to make minimum order quantities for a production run. While many of the components are available off the shelf, some components require custom molds and tooling.

As avid cyclists, Nicolini and Palmer had been tinkering with a smart bike light concept because they found conventional bike lights to be lacking in brightness, battery life and also hard to adjust during a ride. Palmer is a Humboldt State University graduate and an engineer and designer, while Nicolini is a mechanical designer and manufacturing guru with a bachelor’s in manufacturing technology from California State University, Chico. Using their technical skills, they developed the patent-pending technology behind Xlerad.

The Xlerad is intended for all terrain, including road, mountain and commuter routes. Its smart sensors detect riding conditions and its internal performance to adjust to the best possible lighting level for the given situation. The brightness ranges from 200 to 1,000 lumens, and there is also a fixed mode set at 400 lumens. More information about the technology behind Xlerad is available online at http://www.xlerad.com/technology.html.
