Cycling is an endurance event. Long races, always another hill, mental stamina a must, thousands of miles needed in our legs. Plus we need to be able to put out high wattages in a single instance.
Spring is here, and training races are beginning. Are these events the same as any other event on your calendar? Coach BJ suggests we use our training races as an extension of our normal training program.
Is hiring a coach enough to get you on the podium of your dreams? No. Coach Tim explains why we need to find a deeper source of motivation in order to achieve our goals.
Nutrition can be tricky, especially when you first begin to increase your level of training. Nutritionist Namrita Kumar answers some important questions for active women.
Coach Leslee shares her expert tips on how to get the most out of yoga/mobility moves and then translate those benefits to good form on the bike (or in any sport).

- Ex. 165 lb (75kg) athlete in training would eat 120 grams (480cals) of a 3,000-3,500 cal day versus 2000-2500 in carbohydrates.
- In comparison it is not a large portion of the calories.
- 120 grams of protein looks like this:
- 6oz chicken - 40g
- 2 eggs - 12g
- 1C plain yogurt - 6g
- 1 scoop whey protein - 25g
- 2C black beans and rice - 14g
- 1C Quinoa - 24g
