Mike will test you. He's based out of Don's bikes in Rialto.
He's not gonna hook you up to a respirator or draw blood, but it's a pretty thorough test (and *hard*. Be prepared to suffer.).
He'll set you up on your own bike, on a computrainer, and run you through a series of tests to determine your HR and power training zones, and, if you're re-testing, to measure your progress. He uses some sorta finger-monitor for blood O2 measurements. Might not be quite as accurate as drawing blood, but I think it's close enough for anyone who's not a TdF contender...
Tell him Trevor sent you.
Full disclosure: I get no referral bonus. Just a happy client. (I'd be happier if I were *winning*, but my lack of results, as of late, has nothing to do with Mike, and everything to do with my half-assed off/early season training.)
Noticed you're in Yucaipa. I went to HS there. Have a road bike, or just the mtn. bike listed in your profile? You do any of the local roadie group rides?
