Heads Up – Amazon Prime Day Today – Huge Deals List! I’ve consolidated all of the deals I can find into one handy deals page. Massive savings on running, cycling and outdoors tech from: Garmin (30-50% off), Apple (30%+ off), Suunto, Polar, GoPro, DJI drones and plenty more sports gadget goodness. Essentially, if it’s older than 6-8 months, it’s likely on sale. This includes both US and European deals!
I’m constantly updating the page with newly published deals for everything in the sports tech segment – so definitely keep that page bookmarked!
It’s time for another meter. With only a handful of giveaways left in this seemingly never-ending parade of free stuff, we need more power. I suppose I’m probably mostly talking about caffeine and not cycling power…but what’s the difference anyway? I suppose one gives you energy and the other takes it away…but that’s probably overthinking it.
The Quarq DZero is a very solid power meter that broadcasts across ANT+ & Bluetooth Smart. This enables you to properly double-dip on your workouts, uploading them to multiple platforms at once. Transmit it via Bluetooth Smart to Zwift, while concurrently recording it via ANT+ on your bike computer. Upload both to your training log and you’ve instantly doubled your training. Your coach will be proud. Maybe.
Giveaway Opens: 6:00PM US Eastern Time Giveaway Closes: 8:00PM US Eastern Time (Duration: 2 hours)

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!
