Gear will just depend on the actual temps outside... But what works best for me is layering
This video will explain it all. I basically have everything listed in the video except for winter bib tights. I've ridden through winter subzero with classic rapha bibs and roubaix leg warmers. Everyone's body will be different
Anyone here hit up the Sugoi warehouse sale? Posted via RS Mobile
Yep, went twice. Once on Friday (lined up early) and again on Sunday. Lots of good deals to be had! $45 bib shorts...you could get 4 pairs compared to the price of your Rapha ones. Sugoi Custom pieces were the best deal as always, $10 jerseys, $20 jackets. All other accessories (arm warmers, piston leg warmers, gloves, beanies, etc) were like $5/$10. On the Sunday, the custom tri tanks, singlets, and jerseys were 3 for $5. THREE for $5...plus extra 10% off! I could not resist!

They were also 10 for $10, plus 10% off too--appeals to the asian in all of us!
So I took the Cervelo out for its maiden ride today to dial in the gears and fit. It feels way different than my old Rocky Mountain Solo, and my riding legs have definitely whithered out in the 2 months I've been off the bike, so I needed any help possible from the bike (maybe it was the strong winds too ).
The plus side, I went from 19.25 lbs on the old frame to 17.5 lbs on the Cervelo with the same parts build, save for an upgrade to Ultegra crankset. Really surprised by the low weight for 105 level parts and a 1750g wheelset with heavy-ish tires. It would be pretty easy and not much $$ to get it sub 17 lbs if I ever felt so inclined for bragging rights.
i know a couple guys here race..i forget who though. 604CEFIRO is probably primed and ready to race next season.
so maybe i've just been off the saddle for too long, or maybe it's just a totally different workout but spin class is definitely humbling. i'm working on maintaining a high cadence (110-120) as that's what gets me the most because i normally spin in the 90-100 range. i can grind out the "hill" intervals just fine so that's reassuring.
If bicicletta rides didn't seem like a group then I don't know what would lol. I mean it's more of a social cycling group.
Bicicletta rides on Tuesdays were designed for all levels and did mainly Stanley park laps
Saturday rides were no drop rides, longer distance, varied routes, pace of 25-30km/h with a pack of 10-24 people. 60-100kms.
There are training rides as well where people attack and if u can't keep up you would get dropped.
If you wanna get into racing check out glotman simpson or escape velocity.
If u want a feel for some racing thru winter go try out the velodrome. It's a fucking blast.
It would be nice to do a crit or two next year but we'll see. I still think it's a bit sketchy. I have a day job, don't need a broken collar bone in the mix lol Posted via RS Mobile
Had an accident Wednesday afternoon at SFU. Took a shitty bail off the obstacle, front tire slipped off, went over the bars, landed head first. Ended up cracking the helmet in a couple spots, and messed up my back to the point I had to take a day off work and currently have limited mobility.
Just wanted to remind everyone to stay safe out there and wear your helmet! Even riding something you've done plenty of times can still have dire consequences.
You can see the impact marks where the helmet was and my shiner.
