How's your Reaction Time?

The automobile driving manual says the average driver's reaction time is: .75 seconds....... or 1 car length for every 10mph...... I’m not sure of what that would equate to for a cyclist, but 0.75 seconds is probably all the notice you will get before you are creamed by a vehicle about to turn right or cut you off when the driver doesn’t see you.

Or in the case of group riding: Running into the back of another rider. This is why it is important to always be alert and NO Sudden… Continue

First Danish Ride of 2009: Completed! Magic #22

Hey all,

Welcome back Willy! Sorry about your wheel James, you would have had fun. Next time.

The Half Ironman Pacific Coast

While BCC'ers gathered at timmies, I rode 80km of the pacific coast half iron. Now the profile on the computrainer looked relatively benign until about 55k at which point there was a solid climb. But that was just outright misleading, the run to 55 was almost all uphill (not material but still uphill) while the start of that climb was 8.6% and stayed above 5.5% for most of the 25 minutes it took to climb. The good news as outlined in the ride description below is that once you crest that nasty… Continue

The Training Picks Up as The Race Schedule takes Shape

We are turning a corner as the weather appears to be taking a turn for the milder, the clocks leap forward and my own training is starting to step up. With a focus on being able to run a marathon in may while still having a keen focus on the true A race in August, the challenges to keep focused remain. I am trying to map out my race season at this point and it looks quite busy. With a mixture of cycling races, running and triathlon, I am looking forward to getting on the road for the long… Continue
