    I get that to train for a century I need to be biking and figuring out what on bike nutrition works best for me, that part is a no brainer. I even think I've got an okay handle on what kind of riding I should be doing and how much (at least lets just pretend that I do). What I'm curious is...

    Well its that time of year....time for the Wells Avenue Training Series to commence in Needham, MA. Anyone planning on participating in any of the races this year? This series really is a "training series" so there are no points awarded for the top riders, but there is a little bit of bragging...

    I can't make myself pull the trigger on a power meter. Everytime I start to price them, I think of lots of other things for the bike I would rather have. Maybe if I raced more, I might, but for what I do, it seems like too much of a cost. That being said, I thought it was cool to find this...

    Hello; Anyone with a good wind trainer program or idea shout out. It's cold and dark here and I get my computer face time training on a cycle pro. No hills though. Just put it in 8th and crank. Peace,

    Hello! I ran across this forum while searching for information on training and increasing my base of knowledge about both road and mountain biking. I pretty much am as novice as it comes in both arenas and I want to get more into riding for both the exercise, and for some competitive aspects...

    Just in case your standard indoor workouts are getting a little old, I thought I'd mention this. Bought and used this video yesterday. Let me say it was 1 hour of the most fun misery I've ever had on the rollers. This video, and the other on the site, are available for $9.49 with no tax or...

    Do you bent riders give it up in the winter or do you somehow fasten your bikes to a trainer as a DF is used indoors? I miss the bent crowd. Oneway, where the heck are you?

    What do folks do for training in winter? Yeah, I know, lots of folks cycle in snow and below-freezing temps, but for wimps like me living in New England, any workouts that are particularly good or bad?

    Been doing this for about a month now. Have a great coach, kicks my assetts EVERY time. I believe him when he says it never gets any easier. We have been doing Graham Street's workouts on Sundays, anyone ever do them? He has a great program. My question is, how can I get my hamstrings from...

    recently read this book and found it really comprehensive. few nutrition books out there that I think are worthwhile, but this is def one of them Amazon.com: Racing Weight: How to Get Lean for Peak Performance (9781934030516): Matt Fitzgerald: Books Endurance athletes are weight-conscious and...

    This subject has come up in several threads so far. I used to think it important to register a high number. Then I did a bit of reading on elite marathon runners. American Bill Rodgers who dominated marathoning like few others only registered a 70 on a standard multi-breath VO2 test. While...

    7,180 Miles on the bicycle for 2009 5,903 on the Tandem 1,277 on the Mountain Bike --- I thank God for a year of Safe Travels.

    I have not ridden much in the last 6 weeks due to schedule and crappy weather. Today was great so I went out to do one of my regular 15 mile routes and felt like I was pulling 2 tons of weight behind me. Can 6 weeks really make that much difference? I was very discouraged when I finished...

    I just found this site through google (what did we ever do without it?) - what a great resource. I'm new to cycling; last month I bought a bike (Specialized Elite Triple, ridden five times with a total of 39 miles on it) from a client of one of the trainers at my gym. She happened to mention...

    I will admit it. I play rockband when i'm on my bike trainer. After 90 minutes or so, I like to think I'm sweaty from a mere 115bps workout, but i think its the perspiration from headbanging to some of the classics. For those of us who choose to train indoors, or live in areas of the world...

    Awesome to be affiliated with TwoSpoke. For those of us who incorporate indoor training in to our regimen, we have created Welcome to Race Day Rush. Up here in Canada, we use the cold weather as an excuse for indoor training. 6ft of snow doesn't make for good trail riding in the winter...

    I recently started at Curves for Women and really have liked it so far. Any of you other ladies have any experience there?

    I recently have gotten into yoga. I've got a Yoga for beginners DVD that is really great. Pretty soon I am going to need to move on to a new yoga workout video. Can anyone recommend any medium level yoga videos? Also, does anybody else here do yoga? What has been your experience with it and...
