Cyclists aged 18-35 needed for UWO exercise study

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 as to why these sessions are so important. To this end  Glen Belfry PhD (exercise physiologist) and Mike Bitel (MSc student) at Western Kinesiology are doing a research study that requires performing two tests in the lab, going for a 90 k ride and then doing the same tests again. It does not require multiple days of testing just one. 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 age group we are looking for is 18-35 years. If you are interested please contact Glen (gbelfry@uwo.ca) or Mike (mbitel@uwo.ca). Knowledge is power!

General News

 It has been noted that the Saturday LCW tours would leave Centennial Hall from 10 minutes to 15 minutes after the designated start time.  To facilitate getting back home sooner from these sometimes long rides, we have decided to make the start time the actual start time.  Starting May 10th, the Saturday tour will leave Centennial Hall at 8:00 am sharp - no grace period.  It is essential therefore, to arrive prior to the designated start time, to sign in and receive any instructions.  Please pass this message on to other LCW members in case they do not get this message.

Touring 2014

General News

Despite the continuous freezing weather, Touring will start this Saturday March 22nd at 9am.  Unless the weather turns to rain, freezing rain or accumulating snow, we will be meeting down at Centennial Hall.  Please note:  Tour destination is at the discretion of the Leader and may change when winds are excessive and not favorable.  For this reason, meeting at Centennial Hall and signing in is essential to ensure you are part of the tour.   We will try to post any tour changes for Friday evening or worst case scenario, Saturday morning early.

As we enter into a new touring season it is important that we again go over the important safety issues that can occur during tours.  Having had a number of individuals suffer serious debilitating injuries last year from cycling, it is crucial that we stick to a "zero tolerance", "safety first" policy.  This includes the following:  Please read on

2014 Race Schedule

General News

The 2014 race schedule is now up.  As usual, this schedule is subject to change.  Please keep checking back to verify the status of events.  Races this year will be fully sanctioned, but you must still be an LCW member to participate.  All participants are asked to volunteer for at least one event.  The help of others would be appreciated as well.  Please contact Lorne (under the "contact us" link) to volunteer for an event.  Volunteering is easy and hassle-free.  Volunteers serve only to keep records.  They have no administrative responsibilities; they do not direct traffic; and they do not give directives to racers.  There will be a number of changes to the way our events will be run and scored this year, designed to enhance the competition for club awards.  Changes include a handicapping system for time trials, and special "championship" road and criterium events where more points will be available to more participants.  Please read on for more details.
