look behind you

Every cyclist learns relatively early to look back safely. This is something experienced cyclists do almost automatically. The problem is that inside a group you have to use a little different technique to avoid crashing into the runners next to you. This is because when you turn your head to look, your front wheel usually deviates to the same side as your head. As a group, focus on maintaining forward pressure on the bars and push the bars very lightly in the opposite direction your head is turning. Start by practicing this on your own in a safe environment. Experienced riders in the peloton often place their hand on the shoulder of the rider next to them to ensure that the distance between them stays the same as their head turns.

Roll in a rhythm line

A line of pace is a big part of cycling in a group. It’s a formation where the runners are on one line and they share the work at the front of the group, while sharing the rest in the repechage. Rhythm lines are the reason you can ride much faster in a group than alone. It is used extensively in track cycling as well as road races like the Tour de France to improve the chances of successful breakaways. There are several key things to keep in mind if you want to be a valuable member of a rhythm line.

  • When it’s up to you to be ahead, focus on maintaining the same pace as the rider ahead of you.
  • It is better to shoot longer than faster. Don’t speed up even if you think you can handle it, you’ll cause problems for the riders in the back.
  • It is better to shoot shorter than slower. If you think you can’t pull the group for the same amount of time as the runner ahead of you, you can reduce your time up front. This way, your group will avoid losing valuable momentum.
  • Do not do while pulling the band. Keep something in the tank so you can accelerate to the pull line after resting.

Form a rung

If you encounter crosswinds in a pace line, you will need to quickly adapt to form a rung. This means that each rider changes position slightly to line up diagonally with the road to ensure they have the best crosswind protection. The width of the road then limits the number of runners who can fit in the rung and it is sometimes necessary to form two or more rungs. If you are up front when the crosswind hits, ride on the side of the road the wind is coming from. When you complete your turn at the front, pull into the wind then quickly drop back down the back of the group.

Move within a large group

When riding in a group or peloton, it is not easy to climb up to the front. You simply cannot get between two runners in front of you if they are shoulder to shoulder. You can go all the way to the side and try to get around the group from the front, but you’ll waste precious energy battling the wind alone. The best strategy is to move diagonally. To initiate your movement, place your handlebars in front of that of the cyclist next to you. This will allow you to dictate where the two of you go. If the group is very tight, you can protect your handlebars by extending your elbows slightly outward. Be very careful when doing this, you don’t want to suddenly throw your elbows and hit an unsuspecting pilot next to you, causing a crash.

Dealing with Close Contacts

Riding in a group means you will come into physical contact with other riders. There can be a lot of shouldering in races, but it also happens sometimes in training. If you are ready and know how to react, you will be much more comfortable with this. The first thing to remember is to relax and keep your elbows and shoulders loose with a firm, controlled grip on the handlebars. A loose upper body can absorb bumps much more easily than a tight body. If you feel a heavier bump, like a rider leaning on you, you need to match the force and lean slightly in the direction of the rider as well. The two opposing forces will cancel each other out and you can stay balanced.

Start by practicing some of these skills in a safe environment to gain confidence. But nothing replaces real experience. So get out there and join a group ride!

Introductory cycling skills session to mark the completion of the revamped Cassiobury Park trails – www.watford.gov.uk https://companyofcyclists.com/introductory-cycling-skills-session-to-mark-the-completion-of-the-revamped-cassiobury-park-trails-www-watford-gov-uk/ Sun, 17 Jul 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://companyofcyclists.com/introductory-cycling-skills-session-to-mark-the-completion-of-the-revamped-cassiobury-park-trails-www-watford-gov-uk/ Come and attend the initiation to cycling session on July 26 (1:15 p.m. to 4 p.m.)… Cyclists and walkers who have recently benefited from improvements to the network of cycleways and footpaths in Cassiobury Park, Watford Borough Council and the Watford Cycle Hub are hosting a Learn to Cycle session on July 26 (1.15pm-4.00pm), to […]]]>

Come and attend the initiation to cycling session on July 26 (1:15 p.m. to 4 p.m.)…

Cyclists and walkers who have recently benefited from improvements to the network of cycleways and footpaths in Cassiobury Park, Watford Borough Council and the Watford Cycle Hub are hosting a Learn to Cycle session on July 26 (1.15pm-4.00pm), to ensure safe trail use for all parks. users.

The refurbishment, which was completed this month, included improving signage, painting markings and fixing surfaces. Work also included removing the white dividing line on Chemin du Cha Café and pooling these paths, as well as experimenting with the installation of a temporary Beryl Bike bay near Daisy’s in the Park ( also at the park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cassiobury Park Hub).

To also ensure safe use of the trails for all users of the award-winning open space park which is visited by over two million people, the July 26 Introductory Cycling Skills Session (1:15 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. near the Cha Café and Bandstand) will provide the practical skills and understanding that people need to get around by bike. This includes reading road signs, recognizing hazards and sharing space with pedestrians and road users.

This safe trail use was developed in consultation with the Friends of Cassiobury Park to allow for consistent shared use around the park for cyclists and walkers, as not all trails previously allowed cycling. The move also follows feedback from park users who were concerned that previous bike lanes were not being used as intended, causing issues between cyclists and walkers.

There were also concerns that giving way to cyclists via their own separate lane could also lead to excessive speed of bicycles and endanger pedestrians and dog walkers. The removal of split lanes will be continually reviewed and cyclists should follow considerate cycling messages.


Cassiobury Park Trail Improvements

Watford Mayor-elect Peter Taylor said: “In order to get more people into cycling and walking, we need to give people the best facilities and the best training to do so. The works and training courses at Cassiobury Park all contribute to the safe use of the network for cyclists and pedestrians, but will also hopefully encourage more people to walk and cycle in the long term.

“Projects like this also play an important role in helping people choose more active transportation, reaching our goal of net zero emissions, and enabling people to reap the health, environmental and social benefits. the savings offered by cycling and walking.

Over the next two years, Watford Borough Council and Hertfordshire County Council are also developing a program of works to improve key cycling and walking routes through the town, such as Wiggenhall Road. This will help make safe active travel a long-term habit and help residents reap the associated benefits for health, air quality and congestion.

To find out more about the courses, please email info@watfordcyclehub.org.uk. You can also download the ‘Consider Cycling’ brochure from www.watford.gov.uk/cassioburypark.

Milton Keynes Council offers Bikeability training to young MK pupils to encourage them to exercise and get to school.

Over the past year, 4,000 children have been trained to achieve levels 1 and 2 of Bikeability in 40 different local primary schools.

Last week saw a special Bikeability Olympics event to test young people’s skills and celebrate their success. The challenges included an obstacle course, a relay race, a slow race and a road trip.

Bikeability Olympics competitors at the awards ceremony

The event was the first of its kind and a celebration of MK’s promotion of cycling as a clean, inexpensive and healthy way to get around the city.

The winning school was Giles Brook Elementary School, whose team of five competitors won two gold medals and one bronze medal.

Bradwell Village took second place, with pupil Luca Galeanu securing the most individual medals of any competitor, while the Oxley Park school came third.

Councilor Lauren Townsend, Cabinet Member for the Public Realm, attended the Bikeability Olympics. She said: “It’s a great way to encourage kids to cycle more. We know it’s good for your health and can save money while helping the environment. It’s impressive that there are so many young people who cycle to school safely. MK Council is proud to have the ambitious goal of becoming the UK’s number one city for cycling infrastructure”.

Teacher Luke Bartishel from Orchard Academy Primary School said: “Our school has purchased enough bikes for all of our pupils to take Bikeability training. The Bikeability Olympics was an amazing event, a great idea, and the kids loved it.

MK Deputy Mayor Mick Legg will present certificates to Bikeability Olympics winners at the Mayor’s Cycling Awards on Thursday 14th July at 5.30pm at the old CMK Bus Station.

Cyclists will meet outside the Old Bus Station and ride up Midsummer Boulevard, Saxon Gate and Silbury Boulevard to the bright pyramid in Campbell Park for a large group photo.

By “weak grip” I am not referring to the force you can generate with your hands and forearms, although that is also important, but to their “stamina”; that is, how long they are able to perform at the highest level before they begin to tire. If you have poor grip, it can slow you down when pedaling because when your hands and forearms get tired, it will take more effort to hold on to the handlebars and apply the brakes. As a result, you risk driving slower and more cautiously and, in the worst case, having an accident because your braking was too slow or ineffective. This is especially important for gravel racing, endurance mountain biking or long tours with long and demanding descents.

The different types of grips can be classified into three categories: squeeze grip, support grip and pinch grip. The crush grip is used when you squeeze something between your fingers and palm, like a rubber ball, for example, or when you grip the handlebars firmly. Support grip is when you hold or carry things in a grip, such as when carrying a suitcase, or when hanging from things, such as a chin bar. Finally, the pinch grip is when you grab something between your thumb and your fingers, like a book or a clothespin.

Hold on !

Here are some exercises you can perform to improve your grip strength. The best way is to lift heavy objects, like yourself. That’s why simply hanging from a chin bar is a great way to strengthen your grip. You don’t even have to do pull-ups; just hanging there, not touching the ground, does wonders. And it can also help relieve pressure on your back if you have been sitting or standing for a long time. Do five hangs a day with one to two minute rest periods in between.

You can do a similar exercise with dumbbells. Hold one in each hand with your arms hanging by your sides. Resist the temptation to lift them; simply hold them as if you were carrying buckets of fresh milk (hence the name of this exercise: the farmer’s carry). Hold the position for a minute or a minute and a half and do five repetitions. How much should dumbbells weigh? Ideally, both should equal half your body weight.

Dumbbells
Resist the temptation to lift them!

The final exercise is called the pinch twist. You will need something heavy that you can still lift with your fingertips, like a copy of War and peace, thick cookbook, or similar item. Place it on the floor, grab it in a pinch grip, and lift it off the floor as you stand up. Hold the object straight in front of you, then alternately twist your wrist so that your palm faces up then down ten times and switch hands. Repeat the entire exercise five times.

Improving your grip strength is not only important for your cycling, but it can also improve lifespan. A recent study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society examined 5,000 women and followed them for five years to assess the effects of a number of factors (weight loss and gain, smoking and, yes, grip strength) on their death rates.

Surprisingly, they determined that having better grip strength and scoring higher on short physical performance tests (SPPB) were associated with lower death rates. So if you want to ride better and live longer, hang in there!

The bunny hop involves lifting your front wheel, immediately followed by grabbing the rear wheel behind you as you jump over an obstacle. This move isn’t just a cool trick to show off to your friends, it’s a handy tool for all kinds of outings. Whether you’re jumping over a log on a hike or clearing an unexpected pothole in the road, the bunny hop can take your ride to another level.

It can be daunting at first, but in this video we break down the skill and give you tips to get you jumping in no time. Once you’ve dialed in your skills, it’s time to take them to the real world. Jump some logs, style it with a little nose bonk, jump that rock, jump the barriers – the opportunities are endless.

Quick tips:
– Start by feeling comfortable lifting your front wheel above a line on the ground.
-Use a small obstacle that you can knock over if you make a mistake.
-Remember not to brake to avoid getting stuck in the event of an accident.
-Film yourself trying and compare it to someone successfully jumping something.
-Start with flat pedals. This will promote proper form and allow for easier bails if needed.

There are many ways for a person to enjoy their free time. One of the best ways is definitely to participate in a sport. Not only does it give your mind a great distraction from the world, but it also helps promote a healthy and fit lifestyle. Sport is something that everyone should try to incorporate into their lifestyle at least to some extent.

If the sport that interests you is cycling, you have definitely made an excellent choice. It is fantastic for building endurance and leg strength. Plus, biking can be a very relaxing activity. Of course, when you’re interested in any sport, you’re going to want to try to be as good as possible. In the article below, you will find some ways to improve your cycling skills.

Watchmaking professionals

This goes for all sports, just by watching talented people you will improve. Seeing what kind of tactics and maneuvers they perform is going to be on your mind as you practice. See how the best of the best cycle is sure to impact you. If there’s a particular cyclist who has a style you admire, try to emulate that. That’s not to say watching a race or two is going to make you perform like them. However, you will definitely be more aware of what good form and skills look like.

It is practice makes perfect

Of course, you’re not going to improve unless you train well. Given that, you’re going to want to try and get on your bike as often as possible. If you live a busy life, this can be difficult. However, getting up an hour earlier might be the way to train more. Also, if you plan your cycling session ahead of time, you’ll be more likely to stick with it. After all, it’s so easy to say you’re too tired to go out and train.

To rest

As important as training is, rest is just as important. If you don’t get enough rest, fatigue and injuries will be your worst enemies. That’s why even if you don’t want to, you’re going to have to force yourself to rest. If you need something to pass the time when you’re resting, then online gambling is a great thing to do. You can check out www.jokaroom.net for some great online gambling options.

Train on different terrains

You will benefit from training on different terrains and alternative routes. After all, it will be a big change if you go from training on the same course every day to racing on a completely foreign course. That’s why it’s important to try to add variety and modify your workout routine.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Tuesday, May 10, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. | Windsor and Essex County


Launched bike training sessions as part of the local active school travel initiative.

The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit (WECHU), in conjunction with the regional Active School Travel (AST) committee, led an initiative encouraging more children to walk, roll, roll and cycle to get to at school. With support provided by an Ontario Active School Travel Fund (OAST) grant, several activities and projects have been undertaken over the past 12 months to create an environment where students can safely engage in physical activity while commuting. to school and back.

The latest activity kicked off today, Tuesday, May 10 at 9 a.m., and included the first round of CAN-Bike rider training sessions with 4th and 5th graders at King Edward Public School. Prior to the training sessions, a media event was held to celebrate and recognize the many other AST activities that have been created with participating Windsor-Essex County elementary schools through the OAST fund. In attendance were City of Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens, Essex County Reeve Gary McNamara and WECHU Executive Director Nicole Dupuis who spoke about the commitment of the city, county and community. health unit towards active school trips.

The bike training sessions were led by certified Can-Bike educators from Bike Windsor Essex, who taught students helmet fitting, basic bike maintenance, rules of the road, hand signals and general cycling safety. “Learning to ride a bike is a vital skill that teaches children valuable physical and mental skills and helps them build confidence. Studies show that children who cycle to school arrive more focused and ready to learn than their motivated peers, says Lori Newton, Managing Director of Bike Windsor Essex.

The OAST Fund grant has helped unite key partners and parents in Windsor-Essex County to prioritize the health and safety of students and the community through the AST. The project provided direct support to over 2,700 students in six schools through various AST initiatives such as common school travel route assessments to determine their safety for walking and cycling, shopping and installation of nine bicycle racks and the provision of six CAN-Bike training sessions. . The various initiatives of this project reached a total of 35,000 students in 160 area schools through online resources raising awareness of the benefits of walking and cycling to school, including increased physical activity, reduced traffic and congestion in school zones, less pollution, and better school results.

“We are very pleased to have received the OAST Fund grant, as it has allowed us to leverage the collective strengths of our partners to make active and safe travel to schools more accessible to our students in our region. We look forward to continuing to work with our partners to ensure that these AST programs are supported and reach even more students,” said Nicole Dupuis, Executive Director of WECHU.

An AST charter has been developed by the regional committee and has recently been approved by the City of Windsor and the County of Essex. It includes a statement of principles that will guide community partners in supporting long-term AST in neighborhoods across our region. Once all grant-funded project activities are completed in June 2022, the regional AST committee will develop a sustainability plan to expand AST participation to other local schools.


This project was made possible with financial support from Green Communities Canada and the Government of Ontario.

Students from P5, P6 and P7 to Keiss who improved their cycling skills thanks to Bikeability.

Students at Keiss Primary School developed their cycling skills by participating in the national Bikeability training program.

Safe cycling is an essential life skill and the sessions led by Active Schools coordinator Gary McDonald and volunteer parent Treasa Hamilton contributed to basic awareness and bike riding skills to help young people progress towards driving on the road.

P5, P6 and P7 students received their level 1 certificates at their morning assembly on Friday and hit the roads to begin their level 2 training.

Bikeability promotes cycling as an activity and builds the skills and confidence schoolchildren need to cycle safely on the roads.

The pupils also made good use of the newly installed bicycle shelter in the school and nursery to keep their bikes dry during the day after their trip to school.

Principal Fraser Thomson said, “With the restrictions starting to lift, our students have been able to participate in activities that develop life skills that we perhaps took for granted before the lockdown.

“Our P4-7 students started swimming lessons this term and, thanks to Treasa and Gary, the students have gone from developing simple bike awareness skills to learning to ride on the road.

“Many thanks to Treasa and Gary for supporting Bikeability at Keiss Elementary and Kindergarten.”

Sir Bradley Wiggins

The retired cyclist – who was Britain’s first Tour de France winner in 2012 and won five Olympic gold medals – is looking to pass his experience on to famous faces as part of a more ‘Soccer Aid’ challenge late this year.

A source told The Sun newspaper’s Weird TV column: “The program will air as part of ITV’s ‘Soccer Aid’ shows in September, using sport as a starting point to raise money for a good cause. .

“It will be in the same vein as ‘Don’t Rock The Boat,’ which aired last year. On this show, a group of celebrities rowed across the UK.

“But this time, the expert helping the stars is just as famous and offers unbeatable advice.”

The one-off show – which doesn’t have a name yet – will see world record holder Bradley teaching stars how to ride track and road bikes.

And the schedule follows his turn as an expert on the Eurosport Tour de France in 2019, and his appearance as host of Comedy Central’s “Gods of the Game” last year.

The latter featured members of the public testing their skills against Olympians like Sir Chris Hoy, Rebecca Adlington, Nicola Adams and Sir Mo Farah.

Bradley recently revealed that he is planning a documentary – potentially titled “10 Years After Yellow” – in 2022, focusing on the last decade of his life after “A Year in Yellow”, which was released after his victory in 2012.

He said: “We made a pilot for that and a lot has happened in the last couple of years.

“It will be nice to finally get to talk about it and maybe show some stuff that shows how crazy everything has gone.

“This is the script running right now, when it comes out it will be next year.”
