Call for Male 18-35 yr. Research Study Participants

General News

Long duration training sessions have long been known to be a critical component to peak endurance performance. Surprisingly, not a lot is known about the acute physiological response to these rides. The Canadian Centre of Activity and Aging at Western University is conducting a research study involving well trained cyclists that requires performing two tests in the lab, going for a 90 km ride of moderate intensity, and then doing the same tests again. It does not require multiple days of testing just one. We are available for you any day and at any time of day. Information we will be able to give you is your critical power, anaerobic capacity, estimated lactate threshold, VO2 max, peak ATP-PCr power as well as peak anaerobic  glycolytic power. The group we are looking for is 18-35 years male participants. We plan to start testing in May.   If you are interested please contact Glen (gbelfry@uwo.ca) or Mike (mbitel@uwo.ca).

Touring 2015

General News

Touring 2015 starts this weekend, March 21rst.  Remember you need to join to be able to ride - no exceptions.  Also, it essential to sign in at Centennial Hall because tour destinations can be changed by the Tour Leader when significant winds are not favorable.  As always, safety is our main priority and our group leaders are prepared to ensure that proper group ettiquette is followed. 

This year we are introducing a Saturday short ride starting April 18th.  This tour will be a slow to medium paced, no-drop ride and will start at the same time as the long tour.  If you know of anyone who is new to road cycling or not wanting to always do the super long ride, please let them know of this opportunity.  To support this further, we are offering a Wednesday evening, no-drop, Midweek Tour starting in May.  There will be a slower paced ride for newer riders and experienced slower riders and a moderate pace tour as well.  These tours have different starting points and will be posted in the Calender/ Upcoming Events, either the day before or the morning of the ride, to reflect the predominant wind direction. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me

Tentative 2015 Race Training Series Posted

General News

A tentative 2015 race training schedule -- including both Tuesday mass start events and Thursday time trials -- has been posted to the Calendar section of the website. Please have a look and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

 

If you would like to volunteer to officiate at a particular event (or events) please email me and I will make that assignment. If there remain events in need of volunteers I will then assign individuals randomly. If the individual assigned to a particular event is unable to officiate it will be that person's responsibility to find somebody to attend and officiate in his/her place.

Thanks to all those who partipated in the online poll. Based on the results of the voting, we will be assigning volunteers to officiate at races, rather than asking for volunteers. However, we will not be changing the start times for the races, and we will continue to count all events towards the Club Championship series.
