    Sunday school is where some learn from the Book of Paul. But the past couple of weekends, the peloton has been schooled big-time in the Book of Paolo. What can we learn physically and psychologically from the best racer on the planet?

    Welcome back to the latest installment of “Being John Crowley,” (you can insert your own name here) the game we can all play at home as we build a trainig program for a real rdier with a real life. When we last left our hero…

    A few eagle-eyed Pez readers noticed in our interview with ibanesto.com consultant Dr. Alejandro Lucia that he advocates reducing heart rate zones from the typical five down to three. We asked Dr. Lucia to elaborate on his training intensity zones…

    The 18th annual Tour of the Gila is only fourteen weeks away but there's plenty of time to start adjusting your training plan for a podium place. A well-designed plan starting now (or months ago) will address the physiological requirements of the race. We take a look at the specific stages through the eyes of Tool-Boxer Frank Overton and Navigator pro Burke Swindlehurst...

    It seems that last month’s article on cycling style has resulted in a firestorm of shout-outs, quizzical head-shaking, moral outrage, righteous indignation, and questions about whether one teensy-weensy exception might be made. Before we return to actually riding our bikes, Josh gives us a final checklist of what’s cool.

    You could fill a library with all the rules in the unwritten book of cycling etiquette. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that bike racers don’t hit their prime until their mid 30’s. It takes that long to learn all the rules before you can really concentrate on riding strong! With the summer months and group rides aplenty, it’s time to take a scientifically-proven but tongue-in-cheek look at looking good on the bike…

    Pez contributor Graham Jones has lived the cycling life from a raging young buck in the UK to renewing his love affair with the bike again over the past decade. Graham reflects on how cycling has changed or not changed for him over the years…

    Hands up who secretly wants to put a pump in the spokes of the Masters racer who keeps putting the hurt to you on the club rides? Aren't we supposed to get slower as we get older? Let's examine the research on aging and see what changes are inevitable and what we can address by keeping fit...

    I’ve just finished shovelling 15 cm of white fluffy stuff that some joker laid down on my driveway and the rest of Halifax last night while I was sleeping. Dang'd kids. Anyway, it seems like a good time to go over some rules concerning exercising outdoors in the cold and also indoors on the trainer…

    The options and opinions concerning off-season training are almost as numerous as there are coaches and athletes. Based on the principle of specificity, at the heart of the off-season remains the need for saddle time on the bike. For those braving the outdoors, the debate remains: what kind of winter beast will serve best for training in the cold and dark? What equipment will be both durable and bring about the biggest return for the training effort?

    You’re chilling out around the post-ride coffee chat when the conversation spins around to La Vuelta. It’s way shorter than Le Tour and Il Giro, so it can’t be nearly as tough, right? Well, trust us science geeks to come to the rescue with the answer! Unfortunately, the answer also brings up some potentially disturbing questions about the ongoing fight against drugs in cycling…

    For the second year in a row, I spent a week at the Olympic Training Center (OTC) in Chula Vista (just outside San Diego) as a coach for the annual USA Cycling Developmental Camp, between Christmas and New Years.

    Before you take that extra piece of pumpkin pie smothered in whipped cream, let me bring your attention to some of the many areas of cycling that are directly affected by excess weight. By making a pledge this winter to control your diet and just maintain or losing those extra few pounds, you can come into the 2004 season, a lean, mean racing machine.

    Time trials are all about “leaving everything on the road.” You want to pace yourself so that you hit the finish line with nothing left in the gas tank. Many strategies for achieving this have been proposed in the scientific literature. The other question to ask is what the effects of ability are on pacing strategy, and whether such strategy is ingrained or learned.

    This summer many of you will hop in a car or plane and travel to a big race. Maybe its Master Nationals, an NRC race, or just a kick ass event that is cool enough to warrant the trip. Big trips are big commitments and often times you've planned your entire season to "peak" for this particular race. You've built, you've tapered, but have you planned out the actual trip?

    Summer may be over, but there is still a lot of hot weather riding to be done. PCN training correspondent Stephen Cheung, a Ph.D. and published authority on physiology and performance, looks at the benefits of pre-cooling your body prior to hot weather training.

    Some great ideas just take a little longer to get off the ground, and might even require a return trip to the drawing board… But we’re back with a lean & mean version of the soon to be famous “Training for the Real Rider”. This time I’m the guinea pig, and the goal is 2 months away…

  • Tuesday May 4, 2004

    The Real Riding is underway! This was the week of setting benchmarks figuring out where I’m at so I’ll have some idea how far I went by June 19. Under Frank’s strict tutelage, I did 3 tests to set some baselines.
