    RealRyder, The New Way to Spin!

    Spin bikes have been proving themselves for many years, now you have RealRyder shaking things up. You have the traditional spin bike which is great but has trouble mimicking real world biking and balance. If you just want to get into shape great, the ones that need to feel the bike move how they are laying down power is there power equal on both side, the RealRyder will expose those weaknesses.

    SwitchBack, small, powerful and keeps you riding.

    So since the gas prices have drop, Princeton Tech seems to want to keep them that way, introducing the Switchback 1 the smallest most powerful light. With lights like these coming on the market the only thing that will keep you from biking is yourself.
    Burn time is 10 hours (of course on the lowest setting), that should get you to work and back and if not just charge up while at work. Working through all the setting on a ride will get you 5 hours, not bad. Hey is you are still doing the bike commute, training, riding the trails after 6 pm, this light will keep you out just a little longer and that is only a good thing. Put one of these on your holiday list.

    Trek Stop

    First special thanks to Bicycle Design for finding and alerting the general public to this type of support from Trek.

    When you see this type of kiosk popping up, bike traffic must be on the rise. Great now lets hope it continuous since gas prices have fallen, bike commuting has been one of the reasons that the gas industry has drop their prices.
    The Trek Stop allows you to put air in your tires, buy tubes, water bottles, patch kits, energy bars and chain lub out of a vending machine. Plus it have a bike stand, just like in bike shops so that you can work on your bike. Would be great if this sort of things caught on and they were popping up all over the place.

    Polar Cadence Sensor Set

    A must have for all cyclist. You may feel as though you are turning in a good pace and the MPH is up in the 20+ but nothing is like tracking your Cadence. one of the best places to get triathlon gear has the Cadence Sensor set for $45.95 a great price for knowing your Cadence.
    What is you Cadence you ask:

    When cyclists talk about cadence they are referring to the number of revolutions that they crank makes each minute as the pedals are turned. This in layman’s terms simply is the speed at which the cyclist pedals or turns the pedals on the bike as they ride.

    Most cyclists will have a certain cadence speed which they feel comfortable with when they are out riding. Today a lot of bicycles come with a large number of gears so it makes it possible for a cyclist to stick to a cadence that they prefer through a wide range of different speeds at which they are traveling. Normally a typical cyclist will look at having a cadence of between 60 and 80 revs per minute (rpm), whilst professional (racing) cyclists will look at theirs being between 80 and 120 rpm. However sprint cyclists will normally be able to manage 170 rpm for very short distances. Lance Armstrong one of the worlds well known professional cyclists is able to produce a cadence of 120 rpm. Read more at Ezine! So get into Cadence and ride faster for longer.

    Tuesday, May 08, 2007 - New and Improved

    New and Improved...
    I guess the adsense on their site is finally paying off, MapMyRun is improved, with training logs, race and events, running news and two ways to upload your data, .gpx, and gmap-pedometers. I started using this site off and on for the past two years and felt it very cool web 2.0. The only part that they need to add is data from all watches. I don't use a GPS but a Polar watch then I manully plug my route in to see if it matches my Polar foot pod, and it's usually close. The interface is much more robust and it seems to run a little faster. MapMyRun uses Google Maps so you can show distance, markers and elevation on the map, plug in your time and it kicks out stats.
    " provides people of all athletic ability easy-to-use, comprehensive web-based tools to get healthy and train more effectively as an individual or group.

    These interactive tools include:

    Easy to use graphical route mapping tool!
    Workout calculators enabling users to calculate key statistics such as pace, calories burned, etc.
    A new Training Log to track daily workouts and follow your training progress
    Collaboration features that allows users to share their workouts with others.
    I-framing, co-branding, and syndication tools are enabling organizations like Team in Training and VeloNews to share this site with it's user"

    Hey Kevin Callahan, "Idea Guy" I have some cool ideas that could work with MapMyRun, give me a call, in the meantime, Check them out!MapMyRun
