leg speedBefore moving on to the next phase of the season now that we (finally?) have a good mileage base, it is time to have a look at a couple of basic concepts and how they relate to what we want to achieve, namely Power and Efficiency.

Power

These days the focus of cycling training is power. Power meters everywhere and power seems to be the new buzzword. But what exactly is power? Very simply it is speed times strength. What does that mean in cycling terms for us? The best way to illustrate is to go back to one of the age old questions in cycling that keeps coming back: Is it better to push a big gear or spin a smaller one? My answer is always the same: Neither. You want to spin a big gear! That is cycling power.

Spinning is an indoor aerobic conditioning program utilizing your own bike and a trainer. It can be done alone or with friends in the privacy of your home with a spinning DVD, or in a formal class setting.

 

The only line of defense against bike thieves is a bike lock. If you're going to use your bicycle and leave it on the streets, you have to lock it properly.

There is a right and wrong way to lock your bicycle. Nothing is guaranteed but doing it right will improve the odds significantly.

 

A front basket on your bike is iconic, and for a reason.

A basket provides easy access to your things. You won’t need to get off your bike or awkwardly rummage through your shoulder bag.  A stylish basket to throw your purse or wallet and keys into is one of the handiest bike accessories available.

Bicycle mirrors fall into two categories - the type that mount on your bike and the type you mount on your head.

It's important to see what's coming up behind and mirrors allow you to check by moving your eyes and not becoming unbalanced by shifting your whole body.

 

Proper tire pressure lets your bike roll quickly, ride smoothly and fend off flats.

Road tires typically require 80 to 130 psi, mountain tires 30 to 50 psi and hybrid tires 50 to 70 psi. Never go above or below the manufacturer's recommended pressures.
