Santa Rosa Cycling Club 600k Brevet

Brevet Smiling: Santa Rosa Cycling Club 600k “Tina Forsman rides about 200 miles a week, she is Barley’s mom and rides her Volagi Liscio often. This weekend I rode with her and attempted to finish the SRCC 600K. We started really well, the heat took a toll on us on Saturday but we continued riding as if there was not time limit. We took 30 minute brakes at the rest stops, even a one hour break at Pope Valley, maybe it was too long. We had fun, we rode for hours, we arrive at Willis, California, the turn-around point at 1am in the...

Donner’s Pass Bike Route

Donner’s Pass Bike Route

“I think even among the beautiful rides in California, the ride over Donner Pass to Donner Lake at 7,200 ft is one of most picturesque. Everyone going by route 80 from Reno to San Francisco should stop by and take a ride. The climb is easy with only 6% grade and only 1,200 ft from the lake but one everyone should do. This is the pass that the Donner party in 1846 resorted to cannibalism in order to survive and found a pass through the Sierras that lead ultimately to San Francisco.” Words & Pictures – Robert...

Training Tips: Interval Training for Endurance

Two diverse forms of exercise can have similar changes to selected muscle adaptations. However, it has been shown that intense interval training is a time-efficient strategy to induce quick muscle adaptation in comparison to the “traditional” endurance training. Interval Training can be defined as a workout composed of quick bursts of intense exercise with low intensity exercise. It can also be said that interval training is painful, but it has been shown to be an efficient way to improve speed, musculature adaptation: growth and power,...

Sunny Sunday

There were good times to be had over the weekend. Once the sun turns in our favor, it becomes difficult to not abide. And ultimately the dude abides. It’s amazing the speed that is carried with wider tires and and the assurance of consistent braking due in part to the disc brakes. After descending at 50+ mph in gusty crosswinds, it’s hard not to be impressed with those...

Riding the American Countryside

Weekend Ride: Countryside U.S.A.Elevation: Varies, Flat Grade Even though, for many of us, work is located inside city walls, escaping to the rural areas of America can provide the sweetest of treats – open stretches of solitude, growth, and fresher air. In the Spring and early Summer, alfalfa begins to green and for vast stretches of tarmac, the green steals the show. Another favorite is the incredibly vibrant sunset that follow the end of stronger storms. The pink jersey of the Giro doesn’t quite compare to the hues of salmon...
