Hotel for HHH?

Patricia Haney
 

Hotel deas? Haven’t ridden this event before.

Also, trying to decide between a new (upgraded) road bike (with aero bars bc/ I have wrist and shoulder issues, and this suited me well last season - got a tri-fit), or a tri-bike (won’t be racing). Ideas? I have a Jamis Nova Race right now. Bought an entry level bike bc I didn’t know if I’d enjoy riding outside (Cars are scary!). I love riding outside! Thinking about Bikesdirectonline or Jensonusaonline.

Your input is welcome. Sorry for monopolizing the airspace tonight.

Patti,

 

If you will not be doing triathlons or time trials than I would get a road bike and setup with aero bars. The geometry of road bike is far better suited to overall road riding, whereas the geometry of a tri-bike is more suited to time trials.

 

I would also suggest (if it’s in your budget) to go with electronic shifting, esp if you’re going to be fitting aero bars for the following reasons:

1)      Very little shifting effort versus mechanical and this will help with any hand issue you have.

2)      With Shimano you can have shifters on both the brake levers (traditional) and at the end of the aero bars.

a.       This is how I have my road bike setup.

 

Regards,

Mike (PBM)

It also depends on the type of riding that you are doing: group or solo. In the aero position you have less fine control over your steering and you deprive anybody behind you of a  lot of draft. Aero is less suitable for group riding.

protein for recovery

Anna Swiet
 

Hi,
Here is a good review of what makes a good recovery drink, etc.
P.S. I'm not the author and cannot be held accountable for any implied or stated whatevers

MYTH: LARGE AMOUNTS OF PROTEIN ARE NECESSARY FOR RECOVERY

No. Some protein is helpful for recovery, but it is unlikely that you need protein supplementation. The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for protein is .8 grams/kilogram of protein per day. This increases to about 1.2-1.7 g/kg for athletes in a medium- to high-workload training plan (in terms of volume and/or intensity). But consuming more than 2 g/kg of protein doesn’t do you any more good in terms of recovery, muscle synthesis, immune function, or energy metabolism. Whether you are a carnivore, omnivore, vegetarian, or vegan, you should be able to consume 1.2-1.7 g/kg of protein daily through your normal meals and snacks.

MYTH: THE BEST TIME TO CONSUME PROTEIN IS IMMEDIATELY AFTER EXERCISE

In terms of timing, you should be careful not to focus too many of your post-workout nutrition choices on protein. Immediately post-workout you want to focus on replenishing carbohydrate, and adding some protein to your food/drink choices may help accelerate the uptake of carbohydrate. So, when should you consume the most protein? Actually, never. It’s better to spread your intake throughout the day. You need fuel for building and maintaining muscle tissue, your immune system, and all the other functions of protein throughout the day. And you don’t store protein, so unlike fat or carbohydrate you can only use protein from food when you have it on board. In addition, protein is satiating and slows digestion, which helps keep energy levels from spiking and crashing and helps keep you from feeling so hungry. That last point can be very important for athletes who are simultaneously trying to gain fitness and lose weight.

MYTH: YOU NEED A RECOVERY DRINK AFTER EVERY WORKOUT

Recovery drinks are great. They are conveniently deliver carbohydrate, electrolytes, fluid, and protein and they are typically consumed immediately after exercise when your body is ready for rapid replenishment. This 60-90 minute post-exercise period is often referred to as the “glycogen window” because it is when your body is able to replenish glycogen stores most rapidly. But that still doesn’t mean you need a recovery drink after every workout.
Replenishment of fluid, electrolytes, carbohydrate, and protein doesn’t cease after the first 60-90 minutes post-exercise. It just gradually slows down. If you only trained for 60-90 minutes, glycogen replenishment shouldn’t be a big challenge because most likely you didn’t empty the tank in the first place. And even if you did, your glycogen stores will be completely replenished in 24 hours just from your normal food intake.
When should you use a recovery drink? If you are training or competing more than once in a single day, a recovery drink after your first session is a good idea. If you are riding back-to-back days of long miles (like during a bike tour, cycling camp, or stage race), then it’s a good idea as well. Following individual bouts of exercise a breakpoint I use with some athletes is that a recovery drink may be warranted following rides that accumulate about or more than 1500-2000 kilojoules of work (this can vary a bit based on the athlete). This could be very hard 90-minute interval session or a 3-4-hour moderate pace ride, but the rationale is to base the need for a recovery drink on the whether there was sufficient energy expenditure to substantially deplete carbohydrate stores and cause significant training stress.
WHAT A RECOVERY DRINK SHOULD LOOK LIKE
Even when a recovery drink makes sense, the most important ingredients are fluid and carbohydrates, followed by electrolytes and protein. Some people get caught up in the exact ratio, whether 2:1 carb/protein is better or worse then 3:1 or 4:1. I think the bigger picture is that they are all better than a protein-heavy drink. Consuming a high-protein recovery drink that contains little to no carbohydrate is not a good idea for recovery. It may supply a nutrient you need for repair and synthesis, it doesn’t supply the nutrient you need for energy replenishment, the urgency of replenishment is not as big, and you can get the protein you need for repair and synthesis through meals.
Similarly, a drink that contains a lot of protein and a lot of carbohydrate is also not ideal, mostly because it is likely to be very high in calories. Athletes who consume these high-calories drinks typically overcompensate with total post-workout calories because they follow up the drink with a regular size or over-sized meal.

For the doubters... PBM's pink bike

Mike McGehee (PBM)
 

All,

I have had requests for pictures (or proof) that there actually is a pink
bike. I submit for your approval (thanks Rod Sterling) two pictures of the
infamous pink bike.

Sadly there is no picture of it with the RevX wheels with PBM (in pink
lettering [aka Mike Pigg's famous rear disc wheel]) around the rims.

Maybe on an easy early season ride I'll bring it out of hiding.

Regards,
Mike (aka PBM)

All,

I have had requests for pictures (or proof) that there actually is a pink
bike. I submit for your approval (thanks Rod Sterling) two pictures of the
infamous pink bike.

Sadly there is no picture of it with the RevX wheels with PBM (in pink
lettering [aka Mike Pigg's famous rear disc wheel]) around the rims.

Maybe on an easy early season ride I'll bring it out of hiding.

Ride Illinois - road project input letter on Barrington Rd, IL62 to Mundhank

Subject: Ride Illinois - road project input letter on Barrington Rd, IL62 to Mundhank

Dear Ride Illinois members and contacts near Barrington Rd (IL 62 to Mundhank),

 

FYI – the letter below was sent with our suggestions on an upcoming Barrington Road project, which is in a very early stage of design.  I attended the project’s first Community Advisory Group (CAG) meeting.

 

Thanks for your support of our work,

Ed

Ms. Jennifer Morales, PE, ENV SP

Burns McDonnell

200 W. Adams St, Suite 1600

Chicago, IL 60606

 

Dear Ms. Morales,

 

Thank you to all from your firm and IDOT involved with the Barrington Road (IL 62 Algonquin to Mundhank) road project and CAG meetings. As was suggested Tuesday, I am writing with our project recommendations, in case I am unable to attend the next meeting(s).

 

Strava’s heat map at labs.strava.com/heatmap shows relative levels of current bicycle usage in the project area. One heavily used road is Mundhank. With its relatively low traffic count and demand-actuated stoplights, it is highly likely that cyclists on Mundhank encounter difficulty in triggering a green signal to cross Barrington. While state law allows cyclists (and motorcyclists) to treat a “dead red” stoplight like a stop sign after 120 seconds, engineering solutions are safer.

 

We recommend using one of the solutions offered in section 4.12.5 of AASHTO’s Guide for the Development of Bicycle Facilities, adding the relevant MUTCD pavement marking and sign if needed for the solution selected. Note that pedestrian-style push button actuation on a traffic signal pole is often difficult (and unsafe) for on-road bicyclists to access and return to the road. Since cyclists on Mundhank will exclusively be on-road, on-road detection is more appropriate.

 

A second intersection concern is the Algonquin Road sidepath trail crossing of the north face of the Barrington Road intersection.  In general, it is difficult for off-road bicyclists and pedestrians to cross wide, multilane suburban intersections with large turning radii that result in stop lines being further back than often is realistic for traffic. At this location, the issue is worsened by the trail being at least 20 feet back of Algonquin Road at the intersection’s northwest corner.

 

We recommend adding a raised, right-corner island (aka “pork chop”) at least at the northwest corner, preferably the northeast as well. The trail would cross using these islands. The relatively high level of bicycle use on this trail raises the priority of such an application. While there is not yet a Crash Reduction Factor for them, we strongly believe that corner islands significantly improve bike/ped safety by bringing the crossing closer to the intersection (beyond where cross-traffic motorists actually stop) and isolating conflicts with turning vehicles. Additional right-of-way will be needed, and truck issues can be handled – we can point to some good Illinois examples.

 

Finally, bicycle and pedestrian access along Barrington between Mundhank and Algonquin would greatly improve by adding a sidepath trail – the facility type that meets IDOT’s BDE Chapter 17 policy for this roadway context.

 

The Strava heat map indicates that both Witt/Penny (to the west) and Freeman (to the east) are already highly used alternatives to Barrington for on-road cyclists between Mundhank and Algonquin.  However, the priority for a sidepath in this project raises due to the proximity of the Poplar Creek, Algonquin, and Paul Douglas Trails. These popular trails draw a larger range of users than would feel comfortable riding on Witt and Penny, or Freeman. The Barrington Road interchange project to the south will close a significant portion of the off-road gap between these larger trail systems. Having a sidepath in this design could close much more of the gap – or all of it, it the project limit is extended south for that reason.

 

The sidepath would also provide access to the trails for those living in the residential areas on the west side of Barrington Road.

 

Thank you for your consideration of these requests. We would be glad to discuss in further detail.

 

Sincerely,

 

Ed Barsotti

Chief Programs Officer
