- Use Your Bunch! Thomas, Steve // Bicycling Australia;Jan/Feb2008, Issue 149, p76
The article provides information related to cycling or racing in a bunch. The author relates that riding in a bunch should be relaxed and safe experience. The idea is to make the ride easy for cyclists, and to use the cohesion of other riders to its maximum effect attain the goal. Lastly, the...
- External exercise information provides no immediate additional performance benefit to untrained individuals in time trial cycling. Williams, C. A.; Bailey, S. D.; Mauger, A. R. // British Journal of Sports Medicine;Jan2012, Vol. 46 Issue 1, p49
Objective To determine the importance of the provision of external exercise information to the setting of the pacing strategy, in subjects unfamiliar with a cycling task. Design Twenty-two healthy, untrained cyclists (VO2max, 50Â±9 mL-1Â·kg-1Â·min-1) were randomly assigned to a control...
- Effect of contrast water therapy duration on recovery of cycling performance: a dose-response study. Versey, Nathan; Halson, Shona; Dawson, Brian // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Jan2011, Vol. 111 Issue 1, p37
This study investigated whether contrast water therapy (CWT) has a dose-response effect on recovery from high-intensity cycling. Eleven trained male cyclists completed four trials, each commencing with a 75-min cycling protocol containing six sets of five 15-s sprints and three 5-min time-trials...
- YOUR BEST YEAR STARTS NOW. Madden, Stephen // Bicycling;May2006, Vol. 47 Issue 4, p18
This article presents the author's views on bicycle riding. It discusses the importance of training programs and the health benefits of cycling.
- Effects of resistive load on performance and surface EMG activity during repeated cycling sprints on a non-isokinetic cycle ergometer. R Matsuura // British Journal of Sports Medicine;Aug2011, Vol. 45 Issue 10, p820
OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of resistive load on performance and surface electromyogram (SEMG) activity during repeated cycling sprints (RCS) on a non-isokinetic cycle ergometer. METHODS: Participants performed two RCS tests (ten 10-second cycling sprints) interspersed with both 30- and...
- Erectile dysfunction is common with long distance cycling. // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);10/9/2004, Vol. 329 Issue 7470, preceding p809
Discusses whether there are specific bicycle characteristics that modify the risk of erectile dysfunction. Description of a study regarding this issue; Assertion that long distance cyclists wishing to minimize the risk of erectile dysfunction should ride a road bicycle instead of a mountain...
- Reproducibility of the Cycling Time to Exhaustion at ...O[sub2]peak in Highly Trained Cyclists. Laursen, Paul B.; Shing, Cecilia M.; Jenkins, David G. // Canadian Journal of Applied Physiology;Aug2003, Vol. 28 Issue 4, p605
Provides information on a study that examined the reproducibility of cycling time to exhaustion at the power output equal to that attained at peak oxygen uptake during a progressive exercise test in highly trained cyclists. Methodology of the study; Results and discussion on the study.
- A SEASON 4 CYCLING. Spaulding, Wayne // Triathlon Life;Winter2009, Vol. 12 Issue 1, p34
The article discusses the crucial components to improve cycling efficiency including bike fit, pedal stroke, biomechanical efficiency and aerodynamic efficiency. It is said that the components are interrelated, and to witness improvement in one, is an indication that others will also get better....
