Louise B Cycling at the weekends  Tribe

Contributorsilver Louise B I'm going up to Olympic tri distance this year so need to get to 40km. Not a massive distance but enough for someone who avoids the bike as much as possible!


It becomes massive after 1.5 Kms of swimming and you need to run a 10 after that :). All the best.

Had to have been convention related to temp. different altitudes different barometric pressures, could explain why it seemed different than normal. I don't think either of you were about to spontaneously combust

Contributorsilver Tom G Hoping to do some cycling either today or tomorrow as it will be in the 50's later I the day. There is a linear park near the house called Fish Creek which I believe has a 6 mile trail I can ride. Time to make those final adjustments to the bike and get after it.

Looking to buy a turbo trainer, we just had our Irish budget so a third year of austerity begins to really bite - so unfortunately not a lot left in the personal budget for a 'fancy' turbo trainer. Looking for TS advice on good value TTs. Thanks!...

Gaina C Cycling at the weekends  Tribe

Contributorgold Gaina C Last time I rode before today, I had done a light weights session the night before and I found it much easier to peddle the next day (I'm a hand cyclist). I 'bonked' later into the ride and it wasn't half as bad as it usually is. Today I rode without doing weights the night before and the 'bonk' came earlier and lasted longer.

Does anyone else do strength training on their legs with weights? Is there a logical reason why it would make cycling easier the day after? I'd be fascinated to know!

Dave W and Stephen C encouraged this.
