Research Study Seeking Trained Cyclists

My name is Glen Belfry and I have been an LCW member since the 80's. I am also an exercise physiology Professor in Kinesiology at Western. We are currently doing a study comparing trained vs untrained, as well as older versus younger men. The information we are studying is; maximal oxygen uptake, maximal aerobic power, estimated lactate threshold, sometimes called anaerobic threshold, and finally how quickly your oxygen system responds to changes in power output. We are studying cyclists of all ages 18 to 90 years of age.
Two visits to the lab would be required to be part of this study. Details are below. Please contact Tyler Grey (tylermgrey@gmail.com) to set up a time to come in. I will also be there for your first visit to introduce you to Tyler. Thanks!

LETTER OF INFORMATION

Elite cyclists vs. untrained controls: comparing the VO2 kinetics response in young, middle aged and older men
Principal Investigator: Donald H Paterson, PhD Tel: 519.661.1606
PhD Student: Matthew Spencer, MSc

 

Purpose of Study:

You are being invited to participate in a research study that examines the rate at which oxygen (O2) is utilized by the body to generate energy for exercise. During the transition from rest or light-intensity exercise to higher intensities, the rate of adjustment of O2 use (called “VO2 kinetics”) may depend on how rapidly certain enzymes in the muscle are activated or on how quickly blood flow increases to supply O2 to the active muscle. In general, VO2 kinetics is slower in older adults compared to young adults; however, the VO2 kinetics response has not yet been studied in middle-aged individuals. It has also been shown that endurance training causes VO2 kinetics to get faster in older and young individuals; however, again, whether (and to what extent) endurance training has a similar effect in middle-aged individuals remains unclear. So, this study will generally describe how training status and age interact to affect VO2 kinetics.

Funding Appeal from Will Simonds

General News

The Forest City Velodrome has announced a fundraising drive for Will Simonds.  Will has been nominated for Team Ontario this summer and has earned a spot on the Canadian team for the 2012 Junior World Track Championships in New Zealand in August.  Costs to attend all of the competitions over the next 3 months are estimated to be $8,500.00, and all these projects are self-funded.  The Velodrome Association would like to come up with 50% of the funds needed for Will to pursue his dreams.

Seven Members of L.C.W. are Cyclists in an International Television Commercial to be televised at the 2012 Olympics

After news time on Monday, June 4th the citizens of London knew all about the production company from Los Angeles, California who had come to London to do an international television commercial of a faux running marathon, at the corner of Wellington St. and Dufferin Ave. It was all over the news and in the newspaper, but not many people knew about the other international television commercial that had already taken place that day at the corner of Wonderland Rd. and Nine Mile Rd. north of London. There were no camera men and cameras and no big crowds, just the curious motorists on their way to work who sometimes stopped to take a look and who were quickly told to move on by the police officer hired to control traffic and a couple of cyclists who stopped to ask if we were doing a time trial? I replied no, we’re doing a TV commercial! Why? because the production company had come to London to do the faux marathon and decided once they were here to do a cycling commercial. This resulted in an urgent request for cyclists going out both in the London Free Press and emails being sent to some of the Executive members of the L.C.W.
