Sunday morning "Waffle" Ride - meet at Everett Alvarez Jr Park in Santa Clara to roll at 9:00 AM. Twenty flat miles, mostly on paved bike paths, ending with coffee and breakfast near the shop. Perfect social or recovery ride. Helmets required.

Today's Tip

Use Average Heart Rate To Pace Yourself - Just as the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, the fastest, most efficient way to complete a ride is at a steady pace. A great tool for learning to ride a steady pace is a heart-rate monitor with an average-heart-rate readout. Use this feature during a hard ride or race. Afterward it will show the average heart rate you sustained. Then, the next time out, you can use this figure to gauge your pace on a new route to avoid overdoing it. Here's one example: if a rider's average (and safe) heart rate was 150 beats per minute for an energetic, sustained effort, keeping the heart rate at 150 or below during most of the new ride ensures maintaining an efficient pace from beginning to end. Mind your monitor to avoid heart rate spikes caused by big efforts such as sprinting up hills or pushing too big a gear as much as possible, as these efforts will quickly drain your energy reserves and make it harder to maintain your desired pace.
