Yep. The Thursday night ride is actually called the Airport Ride because we ride around it. Check it out: less than a foot per mile.
I get that they're trying for a generally southern direction, but it makes for a much more interesting and visually compelling race to go from Lodi to NC. Especially if they were to finish with a...
It wasn't about the weather so much as the location. Barcelona is one of my favorite cities in the world. The food, the culture, coming out of a restaurant at 1am and then ambling the streets,...
I'll essentially repeat what I said in the 41: 3 bike lengths is too far back to get an effective draft but close enough to be annoying and/or creepy. So either ask for and receive permission to...
You guys are killing me.
The MAP test sounds relatively straightforward to do, but it's not clear to me what you are supposed to do with the results. That is, do you translate it into FTP somehow and base your training...
100' of z2 with 30 of z3 in the middle of it. Not exactly the most exciting workout, but whatever. At least I was able to get out.
Went for a ride today and made a point of waving to as many riders as possible. Interestingly enough, only the ones on road bikes and wearing jerseys waved back.
2-3 bike lengths is close enough to be creepy or annoying, but far enough to be worthless for drafting. Either pass, ask to draft, or soft pedal and let a gap open up.

I look at everything, including shadows and reflections in shop windows, if possible.
My dad has been internet famous for the last 24 hours. He and my mom were at the NLCS last night. Before the game my mom was in the dugout store buying yet more Giants stuff and my dad was waiting...
I feel like commuting has helped my race skills more than the other way around. Botts dots are no big deal. I've hopped up on the sidewalk more than once in a race.
I have a 2005 A4 Avant. When I win the lottery I'm going to fly to Germany and pick up one of these. 2016 Audi RS4 Avant | car review @ Top Speed
One coach I had incorporated high intensity into my winter routine by working in CX races and the Saturday group ride. Long and steady during the week is great, but going hard on the weekend isn't...
I've heard from several racers who said racing in Europe was an eye-opener.
Contrary to popular BF belief, a new bike is not required for racing or race training.
There is an effort to get a velodrome built here in Sacramento. A nonprofit has been formed, the land has been set aside, and fundraising efforts have been ongoing. The number I keep hearing is...
No. Realistically, if I'd taken up bike racing 17 rather than 37, I'd probably only have made Cat 2. I say this because I am currently a Cat 3 and race against Cat 2's, 1's, and former pros in...
