Jeff N commented on Brad Reddick's blog post Bike power calculations
"Fun model!  Sensible result, it makes sense from an energy balance that the more time going faster, the more energy will be dissipated by air resistance and less needed from braking. Time for an experiment?  Just need a temperature…"

Jonathan McCrea commented on Brad Reddick's blog post Bike power calculations
"Interesting spreadsheet Brad.  I've heard about some issues with carbon rims heating up and delaminating when pro-riders do some hard braking when riding in the mountains (which would mean heating up >120°C)... so the heat-up theory…"

"Nothing for anyone to do with this, just thought if anyone was interested I'd post it. You're absolutely right, I didn't factor any cooling into the model.  For heating the rim I assumed I was heating half the mass of the rims…"

Bike power calculations

Hi all. Given my spate of flats lately (always at the bottom of a descent...) I was interested in how much I was heating up my rims through braking. So I pulled together a quick power calculator. I know there's a number of engineers among us, so thought folks might find this interesting (sorry if this is a "been there, done that" thing - I couldn't find anything online that worked well)The cells in orange are inputs. The coefficients of wind resistance and rolling resistance came from internet…See More

BCC Rides

Cycling in the summer can be about casual riding, sprinting, spinning, big-ring hammerfests or what ever your chosen type of riding is. The BCC was founded for the sole purpose to network cyclists. It has grown into a successful club which accommodates Riders at almost all skill/fitness levels. Everyone should be able to participate and have fun at their respective levels.

 

Weekend Rides: 

Saturday

Saturday Morning
Start time is 8:00am early season, 7:00am as days get longer. Route distances vary from 55-120km and several pace groups are available. Saturday morning rides focus on a social vibe.

Sunday

Sunrise Sundays
Rides will start around sunrise. Rotating routes will focus on distances from 100-160km. Once a month, a destination ride will be posted.

Weekly Rides:

 

Tuesday

Advanced Turbo Tuesdays
For this ride, advanced group riding and bike handling skills are required. You must also be aware of your limitations. Riding speed is 35-45kph.

Thursday

Hillicious Thursdays
Starts at 5:40am. This ride includes Brimley repeats, a Beaches hill loop, and/or other local hills.

Thursday#2

CX/MTB Ride

Starts at 7:00pm. Bring your CX or MTB out for a great Don trail ride. Some weeks, we'll head to a local park to practice CX skills.
