    Submitted by Bill Plock on December 14th, 2020

    With the heart of the indoor riding season upon us, now is great time to experiment with nutrition, bike position and really test things like our heart rate vs watts or other metrics. While on a trainer so much can be learned and felt in such a static position. Now you can even dial in your bike fit with a remote new service by Boulder’s LEOMO.

    Leomo has launched its innovative remote bike-fitting service in the U.S. using its wearable motion analysis technology. The service, the first of its kind in the world, debuted in Japan in September using LEOMO’s TYPE-S Sensor Kit Pro.

      • Adelaide Perr’s Book “Degloved” reviewed

        Submitted by Bill Plock on December 8th, 2020

        Degloved is both a story of tragedy and hope. When Boulder athlete Adelaide Perr headed out for a bike ride in October of 2014, she had no idea that her life was about to be forever changed. A few miles into her ride, a car pulled directly into her path, with no chance of her stopping in time. Adelaide crashed into and through the driver’s window, face first.

        • Executive Director, Kate Rau, “The Magic” of the Colorado High School Cycling League.

          Submitted by Bill Plock on December 3rd, 2020

          Kate Rau’s passion for making lives better and helping kids ride through the tunnel of adolescence to becoming adults permeates the core values of the Colorado High School Cycling League.

            Submitted by Bill Plock on November 30th, 2020

            This article will hopefully point out some not so obvious challenges, ideas and solutions to help you enjoy winter riding outdoors more.

            Riding outside in the Colorado winter comes with increased risks, but often with un-anticipated rewards. I, like so many, have come to enjoy indoor riding much more thanks to my smart trainer (Saris H3) and my motivating software, Zwift. But it doesn’t replace the crisp Colorado air and snowy vistas and a sense of not only being outside and refreshed, but sort of conquering the elements too.  Read more
