Howdy- I post this article several times a year. My hope is that it presents some useful information in a less biased manner. I share this information when individuals inquire about the benefits of using embrocation. Obviously we believe there are many benefits to using our handcrafted embrocations, but this serves as great starting point. Thank you Mr. Freed! As allows we welcome all questions. Thank you for stopping by the blog. If racing this week, "race, eyeballs out", and have a blast!

/ Nike Pool from Defgrip on Vimeo. Like most every video you find posted on a blog, "this one is awesome". Anyways, I enjoyed it and felt both humbled and inspired. Over the past couple months I have spent more time absorbing the urban culture of cycling and continue to be fascinated with the genuine creativity that the simple bike can ignite. This video carries the bmx. But the fixed bike tricks, and general urban cycling culture continues to amaze me. One more angle for the bike to move us forward. Thanks for taking a peak-Chad Stolen from one of... Continue reading

Just left one of those bike forums feeling a bit bummed...seems as though a some people work hard to belittle fellow cyclists, too bad. Reminded me of the post below from the Surly folks. This sums up my perspective. Thank you Surly! Ride and smile, all the rest is crap. Surlyblog Thursday, June 16, 2011 posted by Skip Bernet Some answers to just about any bike forum post I’ve ever read If you think your bike looks good, it does. If you like the way your bike rides, it’s an awesome bike. You don’t need to spend a million dollars... Continue reading

DARK SIDE OF THE LENS from Astray Films on Vimeo. As always thanks for taking a moment to stop by for a visit. Once a year our family heads down to the coast to visit my father. This time is always magical where the power of the family and the ocean combine to provide an awesome experience. My father is on the verge of a double knee replacement. With the heart of a champion he indulges his granchildren to walk miles along the beach and in the park to creates lifetime memories. I know that pain ensues, hidden behind a... Continue reading

I have the white fever in a bad way. Cannot hardly think of much else other than finding my way to lift line to ride. Sorry if I have been distracted, but fun with friends and family snowboarding is at an all time high. The need to scratch that itch has become a haunt that needs attention...making the work week seem painfully long. Need to be up at 5AM on a Sunday morning- no problem. I will be there!

In the Rockies of CO, the snow has been awesome, and my time away from family and work has been about reaping the benefits of this snow on the board. It has been grand with big days and great friends. On these epic days I have continued my use of the RLW products, Flahute, Prepare & Recover. The reason is because our current product line is all about Circulation. With circulation the muscles can be warmed and expanded for athletic activity, or expanded and flushed via circulation. The mix of essential oils enhance the goal of the respective product, that... Continue reading

especially her quotes. Molly Cameron, has been internally quotable with Mike and I for the last couple of years. Whether racing or practicing cross we would throw her quotes between each other, especially "hands off the f***ing brakes" . Needless to say we are huge fans of Molly. I have always admired Molly for her complete honesty. Molly has never used or tried our products (to my knowledge), but her comments regarding the use of embrocation echo our efforts. If you have spent time speaking with us at the cyclocross venues, this will sound familiar. Check out Molly's thoughts on... Continue reading

Thanks to everyone for stopping by for a visit to the Routine Leg Works website and also to all the cross racers who visit with us at the race venues. You all continue to provide us with awesome energy and support. One of the most common questions I get when speaking with people is "what is different about your embrocation?" I am always excited when I hear this question, it gives me an opportunity to share some important information. #1- With all our embrocations, they are designed to be worked into the muscles to create their warmth or relief. They... Continue reading

A quick photo showing the Flahute embrocation in the butter form. Our products use either a butter or an oil base form for application. Although many people including myself use Flahute year round, it does contain several ingredients to increase the warmth of the product. Last Sunday in my "Double Down" effort, I started the first race with Flahute. The second race was in the afternoon with warmer temps. Prior to that race I used the oil based Prepare product. I was very excited the legs fired back up for the race. Decent legs rockin' my battle tested single speed,... Continue reading

I really enjoyed this article by Heidi Swift. I think her honesty and disclosure show the "realness" of cyclocross. Cyclocross is lot of things to a lot of different people. In this article I could relate to "the cleansing" to which Ms. Swift refers. Every year at this time going into cyclocross season I ask myself the same question, why do I love cyclocross so much? There are so many reasons I love this sport, but one that stands out to me is that there is simply no place hide (cleansing). You can sit on wheel, ride in a group,... Continue reading
