Heads-up: Huge Sports Tech Sale Underway – 20% Off All Smart Trainers!
There’s a massive sales on smart cycling trainers right now, plus plenty other sports tech. There’s 20% off the Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, CLIMB, Headwind, 20% off the Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, and Flux S, 20% off Saris Hammer 3 trainer and Saris MP1 Motion Platform. Plus also 20% off the Elite Direto X and Suito too, even the new Sterzo. Plus even steeper deals including with the Kinetic trainers at 30% off.
However, I am also prepared to cook a ton, and likely continue my never ending friendship with Mr. Trainer – because riding him doesn’t require going to a closed pool or gym (treadmill). And just to be sure he hasn’t forgotten about me (since Wednesday), I re-affirmed that friendship over the past hour:
Speaking of fun cooking things – I’m planning on making one of these (DIY geekdom at that link, go check it out):
What is it you ask? Well…it’s a Sous Vide Immersion Circulator – which is freakin awesome. Basically Sous Vide cooking technique is where you put something (such as meat) inside a sealed bag and then cook it at a very exact temperature in the water. This allows you incredible control over the texture and flavor of the meat. At $75 for all the parts, it’s about 1/6th the cost of the cheapest unit out there – and upwards of 1/40th the cost of most units out there.
This will finally allow me to actually use some of the recipes within Thomas Keller’s latest book that I got a while back – ‘Under Pressure’. Currently that book just sits on the table and looks pretty. In the future it will continue doing that same looking pretty role, but it just might occasionally also get used.
The parts won’t arrive until next week, so that won’t be this weekend’s snowed in food project(s). Instead, the wide assortment of cooked things will be mostly out of the below (and…my overly large cookbook collection).
(Side note above…I’m still bummed that they killed off Gourmet magazine last month and decided to replace my subscription with Bon Appetite instead. Boo!)
I swim, bike and run. Then, I come here and write about my adventures. It’s as simple as that. Most of the time. If you’re new around these parts, here’s the long version of my story.

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list.
