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.



We had 2 flats today, One on the way to the Danish and one on the way home. Note to self: Cut the Drinking the Night before. Completely forgot that I went to bed last night completely dehydrated(wine was good though). Got a hamstring cramp on the way back and rode home with Steve and Christian. Special thanks to Fred for pulling on the way home.



Mike, Albert, Greg, did… Continue

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

Business Trips can be Killers for Training

It is a tough world I know, the glamour of being out in Vancouver and then Whistler has a certain appeal and all the while it is business focused!! Of course, getting the training in can be a challenge - challenged by the time change and a new bed not to mention being out having a few pints with clients makes it doubly difficult but I am giving it an effort.



Tuesday was a rest day, but as I mentioned previously, wednesday is the beginning of the week. This morning i utilized the… Continue

The Weekend Brings the long hours of Training

For my training, the weekend represents the significant amount of training hours that i will post during the week. In peak mode, sometime in late may, early june, i will likely book 15-16 hours of training of which about 9 will come from the weekends.



This weekend was a good one with a good "long-run" on saturday and a long spin on sunday.



The saturday morning run was designed to be 1 hour and 15 minutes. Each Saturday from here, we will add about 15 minutes to these runs.… Continue

Reasons for getting out of bed to train and compression clothing

For most of us, there are many excuses for not getting up for a workout. Too tired, too much work to do, I will catch up tomorrow, i am feeling a little under the weather, its too cold outside, too hot outside, too rainy, too snowy - i know i have used them all. If there is an excuse in the book, I have used it. One of the cures for excuses is having a training partner, knowing somebody else is showing up for a ride, run or swim, generally forces our hand and creates additional incentive for us… Continue
