The Healing Power of Suffering

Sufferlandrians – I just got this email from a fellow Sufferlandrian. I figured I’d share it with you – Suffering can be, in a way, a healing process and an escape. It means to much to me that the ‘fest videos can help someone like this. Thanks very much to the author for allowing me to publish this. —————— David, Things have been bad lately. Stress accumulated, saddle time diminished, and a few personal issues began to get to me. My method of dealing with stress was robbed from me by unfamiliar, treacherous roads, bad weather conditions, and less time

Wade Wallace over at has created one of the best cycling blogs on the internet today. And he’s done it in only a couple of years. Pretty impressive stuff.

Why we charge $11.99

More than 68 reviews online are saying that our cycling workout videos are the best in the world. That makes me incredibly happy because I put my heart and soul into creating these. As a consequence, I’ve been getting asked a lot lately why I don’t raise our prices when all other cycling workout videos cost about $39.99. I’m not going to. Here is why: I started making these videos for people like me. I would not pay $40 for a cycling DVD. I think of ‘fest videos like buying a music album. And those cost about $11.99. I want

Going into Fight Club – Freestyle.

When doing a 'fest video Freestyle, you will blow. Big time.

I’ve got an evil, terrible, awful new way of doing Sufferfest videos: Freestyle. Let me explain. I teach a small (the class would like me to say ‘elite’) spin class on Tuesdays. Today, we decided to do Fight Club. Any Sufferlandrians who know Fight Club, also know that the worst part of the workout are the unexpected and frequent attacks. Now, on the best of days, Fight Club is just an ugly, messy experience that leaves me shattered after trying to keep up with Evans on the final climb of the Mendrisio World Championsihps. But today, for some bizzare reason,
