Triple Bypass 2010
Training Plan Information
Triple Bypass 2009 logoHard to believe that it is time to talk about the 2010 Triple Bypass. It is anticipated that another record will be set when the registration opens. So, prepare to commit early if you want the Triple as one of your summer goals. With this thought, planning ahead for training should be considered as well so that your summer touring experience is at its best.
As last year, Optimize Endurance Services will provide purchasable training plans to prepare riders for the event. Below you'll find descriptions about the plans and as always you're welcome to use the contact info provided to get any further questions answered. [ read full article ]

Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR): The power of data capture
BodyGem user image With fall upon us and the long days of summer waning, the amount of time to train will change for most of us. This means less time on the bike with possible indoor activities that may not use the same amount of energy. A reduction in energy expenditure per day can happen due to the weather dictating more of our mode of exercise.
So, have you thought about the change your eating needs to go through as well? Most likely not, and this is where we make the mistake in not pulling back the consumption of calories in our daily life. Taking the steps to learn what amount of energy your body needs to survive and applying the activity expenditures to find a balance will help you maintain your weight through the fall and winter. With this under control you can start spring training in a better place and find greater progress in the coming year. [ read full article ]

As the owner of OES and the manager of the mountain bike team, I thought I would feature myself in the first issue to bring attention to this branch of the business. Going into the 3rd year, the OES/BS MTB Team will be more than 20 members strong.
You can view the '08/'09 team pages and see what we have accomplished and in early 2010 you will be able to see what we as a team are setting out to do for the year.
GO! OES/BikeSource!

Quote of the Month
"From the dawn of humankind's existence we've sought ways to make time stand still. In our quest for the fourth dimension we've dehydrated ourselves in sweat lodges, and ingested hallucinogenic plants. We've even fantasized about building machines that could take us backward through time. But nothing makes the clock tick more slowly than stationary cycling"
     ------Don Cuerdon (cycling journalist who uses the pen name "Captain Dondo")
