La Dolce Velo shop ride

Spin class is back beginning November 4!

One of the best ways to enjoy cycling is with other enthusiasts. We can help you learn the rules and find a group suited to your abilities and goals. We have several weekly shop rides:

Wednesdays, 6:30 pm (November through March) - Spin class! So what if it's pouring out. Bring your bike, trainer, fluids, towel and dry clothes for after and get a challenging, fun, cycling specific spin workout that will help you get stronger in the right way this winter. Single leg drills, spin-ups, simulated hill climbs, steady state efforts are all led by Coach Muddy Waters in a fun group environment. Join us!

Saturdays, 7:00am: 30-40 miles at moderate speeds (15-18 mph) and hills. Meet at the shop with your bike, helmet, and fluids. Periodic re-groups.

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

Simple Rear-Derailleur Adjustment - Here's a simple way to fine-tune rear shifting. You don't even need tools. Look at the point where the cable enters the rear derailleur. See that round knurled piece? That's a barrel adjuster. Standing behind the bike, this adjuster is turned in half-turn increments until the shifting glitch is cured. Which way do you turn it? It depends on what's wrong. The most common problem is slow shifting into easier gears. But, you might also be experiencing the opposite. Follow these rules: If the derailleur hesitates shifting toward the spokes, turn the barrel toward the spokes (counter-clockwise); and if it hesitates shifting away from the spokes, turn the adjuster away (clockwise) from the spokes. (Always turn it only a half turn, check the adjustment, and repeat as needed to cure the problem.)
