Re: Cornering like a pro

Met up with Dave M (of IRC) and got to work riding a short circuit over and over cornering at Lam Circle by UVic. It was great practice to ride on his wheel and trace the safest and fastest lines. For me, this was never intuitive and definitely takes practice. Lesson from today: I think it's totally...

Cornering like a pro

I want to know the secret of zipping through corners. Fast and fearlessly through in a pack. Effective cornering in an aggressive pack where you preserve speed and save precious energy has been the bane of my racing, so I've decided it's time to finally nip this problem in the bud. I will be forever...

Re: Coach training this spring

Hi Listar,
Would this also be available for adults? I'll be interested in coaching. Don't know who's gotten back to you or when this will be taking place, but I happen to be back in town in April and be interested in maximising hill climbing and doing anything to just getting faster.

Recommendations for awesome women's road/race bike

Hi all, On the market for a women's specific or very small-framed road and race bike for the spring and summer. I've been riding the Focus Izalco 47 cm but it's much too long and too stretched out for me and it's time to retire that and move onto a better fitting (and lighter) bike. I'm a fan of the...

Soundproofing for trainers

Hey guys, I've noticed that my trainer makes a ton of noise and that that housemates and possibly neighbours don't always appreciate the hum especially early in the morning or in the evening when they're around. Would anyone know of or recommend any soundproofing mats or devices that I can buy or fi...

The stuff of riding fantasies

I have some time off in the last week of May and June so what else am I going to do other than ride ride, ride and then ride some more? My original plan was to head to the Alps (again) and gain some serious altitude and do the local Stages and Sportifs. Given that it's early summer, it may not be we...

All I want for Xmas is a powermeter

I've been thinking of getting this toy for some time and the thing that has been holding me back is the cost. If anyone has a used one for sale, shoot me a line.

It's been looking kinda icy lately early mornings so I'm wondering when and what is the verdict on Thursday's ride?
