Changes to August Racing Schedule

General News

Please have a look at the calendar, as there have been some changes to the upcoming racing/training schedule. As the days grow shorter it makes sense to keep our Tuesday night races in town during August, which means using Innovation, Sovereign, and perhaps Exeter Rd. during that time. My impression is that Innovation is raceable, but dirty, so if you could show up a bit early on August 4th and August 18th to help sweep the course -- especially the southeast corner -- that would be helpful. Thanks.

Update on research study participant request

General News

From Glen Belfry:



Hello Everyone! It is coming up on two months since we last posted information on our current research endeavor within our Physiology of High Performance group. The weather has been cooperating fairly well and I am sure you have been able get your weekly volume upwards of 300 k and perhaps 500 k for the real maniacs. A quick recap of our study; Well-trained cyclists (you!) are being asked to perform two tests in the lab, before and after a 90 k ride of moderate intensity (below your lactate threshold).  We will give you your critical power (highest sustainable aerobic work rate in watts), lactate threshold, VO2 max, peak ATP-PCr (sprint) power as well as your peak lactates and total anaerobic capacity. Aside from giving you this data collected on cutting-edge equipment, we will all gain insight into the benefits of long duration, moderate intensity training sessions. We are available to accommodate you any time, any day of the week. We are looking for is 18-35 year old males. To date we have tested six cyclists and plan on testing six more.  If you are interested please contact Glen (gbelfry@uwo.ca) or Mike (mbitel@uwo.ca).

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
