How I Wasted (or Enjoyed) a Morning of Danny MacAskill Trick Bike Videos

With the weather being windy and uncertain at 5:45am when we had to get going if we were going, we decided to bail again on the training ride.

We sat outside for a while around 6am looking at the wind bending the trees and looked at radar on our phones. The 20 was not worth driving that far for, and if we did the 41, we were afraid there would not be many other riders (or skaters) at our pace doing that distance.

Not wanting to be a hassle, and not wanting to face strong winds, especially if the event were not well attended, we excused ourselves (after conferring with some mates on it).

So I got an email from Sparky of the Tater Rides about some video of a rider. The video seems indie movie and I usually love that but I almost stopped it. Wow am I glad I watched.

Rules for the Cheat Meal

Seriously? Isn't the point of the cheat meal that there are no rules? It's the payoff after many hard days of eating clean, right? In the second visit with my nutrition coach, I learned that the wrong cheat meal can throw off your diet for a few days, beginning the downward spiral in the dieter's trifecta -- self doubt, self loathing and depression. The good news is that you have a lot of latitude with cheat meals, and your body and your scale will guide you. The cheat meal has two purposes -- to replenish glycogen stores and to trick your metabolism. And, the harder you train in the days before your cheat meal, the more latitute you have in food choices. At least this is the way I understand it. If you are really carb depleting, the right cheat meal will register a loss of one or two pounds on the scale next morning. A good cheat meal won't move the scale at all the next morning.

My first cheat meal -- after 8 days on the diet -- was a real blowout.

Cool or Tool Party Crashers: Steely-Biked Pals Join the London 2012 Olympic Road Cycling Test Event

For once I don't know what to think of this. I basically dislike fans trying to get in the race or stand alongside or run along with the riders. I normally wouldn't like riders trying to join in, either. But maybe this was a special deal, I'm not sure. If it truly was a test event, well these guys helped provide the test! And it sounds like the race officials failed? No harm, no foul, maybe, and we'll find out if there was any real damage, I'm sure. The only reason I'd be tempted to say this is cool would be the test event nature of it. Hmm. I don't know but feel like they meant to be there but I'm also thinking they really meant to bring up the rear, not be between the peloton and backmarkers. But then they could just be good liars with pants afire.

My Money is On Red: Guessing the Roadskater.net 2011 Skate and Bike Jersey Mystery Colors

At Saturday's TTT training rest stop the roadskater.net mystery color jersey was the hot topic at Rest Stop 1. One of our teammates -- I will keep her identity a mystery -- went through the full spectrum of colors and said with confidence that it would be red this year. I let her know that if roadskater finds out she knows that the color will change. "It's already gone to press, it can't change," another said. We who buy the jerseys year after year and try all means of trickery to get roadskater or eebee to slip up and tell know that this is not the case. In fact, if you guess too hard and are close to the new color, it is my understanding that roadskater indeed has the power to change the color. My money was on a gray/black combo this year becauase that would go nicely with my new black, gray and pink bike (hint hint for future years). I do know this. I LOVE LOVE LOVE every roadskater.net jersey that I own. And after this year, I will have them all.

Hot Tires in the City: Tanglewood Bike Training Ride and Heat Exhaustion, Dehydration or Rest Stop Calories

If any of you reading this has experience with heat exhaustion or dehydration I would appreciate your comments. Yesterday ended badly and yesterday’s headache is still with me. I’m wrapped up in a blanket with the A/C cranked on meat-locker cold.

It was already 82 degrees at 7:30 Saturday morning when I packed up my bike to head to the Tour to Tanglewood Training Ride. There was no way I was going to miss the ride hosted by my favorite bike shop, Cycles de Oro. I prepared for the ride with a decent night’s sleep and a protein shake packed with oats and almond milk. I rode with two full water bottles, each containing a small scoop of Shaklee Performance, and my last pack of GU. Distance choices were 10, 20 and 36. I was happy to learn that I didn’t have to make the choice between 20 and 36 until 9 miles in, at the first rest stop.
