‣ Texas Bike Racing
POSTED BY BICYCLECC ⋅ FEBRUARY 6, 2014

tbr-logoThere is a new cycling website in our beautiful state of Texas! “The state’s newest and most comprehensive cycling website. Second only to California, Texas has the largest number of USA Cycling members. Our goal is to provide a faster, timelier, content-richer, better-designed resource than anything currently available. On top of our priority list is fast and accurate results (with the help of our promoters, we hope to post same-day results), along with race calendars, Texas-specific feature articles, team and rider bios, epic photos and video, tech reviews, training and nutrition tips, plus a “Riders’ Retreat” forum and classified area.”

Come and check out this new site and spread the word.

MTB Rides Announced for December 2013
POSTED BY BICYCLECC ⋅ FEBRUARY 6, 2014

MTBJason Comstock, who heads our MTB project, has announced the start of MTB group rides. The group rides will meet at the Cinema 16 parking lot, southwest corner, closest to Williams Drive. The rides will commence every Wednesday and Thursday evening, beginning on December 18th. This will be an easy pace cruise through the newly mapped Oso Creek region. Everyone can meet at 5:30pm. Be sure to bring your lights and gear!

Jason has announced:

“The MTB group ride has been going on for a few weeks now and is growing in its attendance every time. The rides are scheduled on wed/thurs evenings starting at 5:30 and have typically gone for 1.5 hrs ( an hour and a half ,mileage varies based on speed and how many stops we make) . I would estimate the total mileage to be between 10 and 20 miles , this varies based on the speed of the group and how many loops we make of a given area. The pace has been fairly mild on these rides. When we get to a given loop area everyone is welcome to go at there own pace and then we regroup. This is a very non technical ride and requires minimal skill. It is VERY advisable to have at least a commuter light. As with any cycling endeavor it is advisable to wear a helmet. Ride at your own risk. I am happy to answer questions about mnt bike skills during the ride.

Hope this helps….My # is 361-232-9122 if you have any questions.”


Low T and Cycling
POSTED BY BICYCLECC ⋅ FEBRUARY 5, 2014

imageIt’s probably crossed your mind, if you’re a 50-year-old masters cyclist, trying to get that competitive edge. Even though you have a day job and cycling is just a hobby, you still long to be a “competitive cyclist.” You’ve been so close to that definitive break, but just not strong enough to take that winning sprint. You’ve seen the ads for men using testosterone cream for a condition called “Low T” or low testosterone. Could using a testosterone cream be the ticket to better performance?

Foot Biomechanics and the Role of Custom Orthotics in Cycling
POSTED BY BICYCLECC ⋅ JANUARY 28, 2014

imageProper equipment in cycling is as important as proper training. Most of us are always looking for a little more speed and certainly more power, so we can get a lighter bike frame and a proper bike fit. However, while shoe inserts and custom cycling orthotics are not often thought of as ‘cycling equipment’, they could certainly improve foot-to-knee alignment and increase overall power and pedal efficiency.

The Ghost Bike Project
POSTED BY BICYCLECC ⋅ DECEMBER 28, 2013

ghostbikeprojectArtist Genea Barnes began researching and photographing over 500 ‘ghost bike’ memorials first discovered while shooting photos in New York in May 2010. ” I started The Ghost Bike Project because we can pass a memorial hundreds of times and eventually forget that it is there to commemorate a human life. I combine photos of Ghost Bikes with images of live people, shot in my studio and manipulated through Photoshop to look like ghosts. The resulting images remind us to keep each other safe and represent a spirit that is no longer with us.”

Many ghost bikes that she has photographed over time have been removed. The artist hopes to save these images and compile them in a book to memorialize those who have lost their lives while cycling.
