    Book review: A hundred years ago today on Sunday, June 28, 1914, 145 cyclists rolled out of Paris for the 12th edition of the Tour de France, while that same day across Europe in Sarajevo, the Archduke Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated - triggering the events that began the Great War.

    A quick look around the WorldTour peloton these days shows somewhat of a new trend of late - beards. With the likes of cycling royalty in Sir Bradley Wiggins sporting some growth or classics strongmen Luca Paolini and Simon Geschke sporting full grown beards we thought we'd take a closer look at our hairy friends plus some of the classic beards of days gone by.

    Roadside: The Giro's Grande Partenza was more than just a bike race swishing past. For Northern Ireland, it was a game changer, a chance to advertise a different side of a country. For Belfast especially, its reputation is like the scar-tissue covered legs of a crash-prone racer. Not pretty …

    I've been lucky to see nine Giros in the last decade, and even luckier to have photographed some of the most beautiful women in the world to share with PEZ-fans, all in the name of our own brand of cycling journalism. Here's 10 of my favorite Giro d'Italia Daily Distractions...

    PEZ's Nat King recently traveled to San Diego to ride the self-proclaimed “Most unique cycling event in the US”, the Belgian Waffle Ride.

    Top Ride:The culmination of my visit to Holy Week was the long anticipated, much feared, and never completed ride across the parcours of Paris-Roubaix. Finally I learned what it was like to battle the toughest roads in northern France and earn my own lap of honour at the Roubaix velodrome.

    Roadside Report: Joking with a former Paris-Roubaix winner, chatting with current stars of the sport and mixing in the VIP area with podium girls and other lucky fans - Lee Rodgers certainly had a great day out at Wednesday's Scheldeprijs. For the race end Lee was at the finishline under sunny skies sipping a cool drink and munching on free food. Could life as a bike fan get any better than this?

    Very few climbs in modern bike racing can still bring a bike racer to his knees. With the evolution of intelligent gearings, the steepest climbs have been tamed, well, as much as they can be. The Koppenberg, however, defies all technological advances and takes us back to a time when plodding upward on foot was just as common as pedaling.

    Sectors of gravel road, dust and hills define the Strade Bianche, but it's so much more.
