The Evolving Art of Carbo-Loading |

With our event coming up on May 7th some of you may be thinking of ways to prepare; including Carbo-loading. Here is a great article dispelling the myths and misinformation behind the process.

What’s coming up?

Next up is a supported ride of the old 70 mile route from past tour events. This will take place this Saturday, April 16th.  Map

Meet at MiraCosta College Cardiff Campus between 7 – 7:30am, we will hopefully be rolling before 7:45am. Don’t forget to arrive with full bottles and enough nutrition to sustain yourself for 20 miles. We will be having SAG stops but it is always advisable to have enough GU or whatever you like to get you through the first leg.

Cory and Jeff from CCSD will be providing support and I’m sure it will be up to the standard Rob and Jo provided last time.

Riders must carry spare tubes, tire repair kit, air pump plus critical water and nutritional bar. HELMETS ARE MANDATORY.

April 24th will be another ride of the 30 mile route. Map

This will be the last organized ride before the May 7th event. Please try to make this one, we can get lots of Team Red shirts on the road. Oh, did I tell you the shirts from the initial order have been produced and shipped to Rage Cycling and Rage has shipped them to San Diego.

Can I get a Woot! Woot!

A Big Thanks to CCSD

Team Red is gearing up for the Tour in six weeks.

We had a great ride of the 55 mile course last weekend with Cycling Camp San Diego providing the support. Rob and Jo gave us some great coaching about climbing, descending and riding in wet conditions as we had a bit of the wet stuff to start our ride.

We rode the first 30 miles and stopped for a rest and nutrition break. Again we were given coaching on nutrition before, during and after the ride and we all learned about maltodextrin. You can too; CLICK

After that the route takes you on a roller coaster of some challenging climbs before delivering you to the Coast Highway. In Carlsbad just before the camp grounds Jo had set up another nutrition station with water, nuts, cliff bars and lots of other things to choose from.

It was a quick run back to MiraCosta to end a great morning in the saddle.

Next Up will be another supported ride by CCSD, this time we will be tackling the old 70 mile route, which generally consists of the last 70 miles of the Century Route. MAP

The date is not firm yet but will probably be either the 16th or 17th of April. Once again this will not be a ride geared for someone who has never tried this distance. This ride will focus on getting the century riders some miles and course familiarity prior to the day of event.

Unfortunately, Rob and Jo will have to be leading a ride in Europe so they will not be supporting us, instead they will be putting us in the very capable hands of some of their staff of coaches, ride leaders and SAG support.

Please RSVP to me at so we can plan support for the correct number of riders. This ride will be primarily for Red Riders and Team Red but if our numbers are low we will allow others to join; this will be determined about April 10th.

If you rode with us on the 55 mile ride please drop Rob and Jo a thank you at or they love to hear from happy riders. If you haven’t already, check out what they do at

Once again, we had a great ride and CCSD treated us very well. Thanks Rob, Thanks Jo have a good trip, see you soon.

CCSD 55 mi TdC Route

3-19-11 – 30 Mile Route Training Ride

This Saturday, 3-19-11 we will again ride the 30 mile route. This time the ride is open to all registered riders not just Team Red and Red Riders. Although I’d like to see as many of you out there as possible.

Once again we’ll meet at MiraCosta between 8:30am and 9:00am. If you come early and get antsy about leaving just give your equipment another check and take some deep cleansing breaths, nine o’clock will come.

Here is my data from last weeks ride, I expect this week to be about the same.  Data

30 Mile TdC route with Team Red

We met at MiraCosta College in Cardiff and rode the 30 mile route for the Tour de Cure today. The riders were all members of Team Red or Red Riders.The weather was fantastic and the ride was smooth.

Here is my ride data. As you can see we had a good steady pace for most of the ride. Everyone did really well on the ride, considering some of the riders have been riding nothing but the sofa since the holidays.

I’ll post some pictures, so check out the Flickr stream. Click

Next up; March 27th, also from MiraCoasta College, we;ll be riding the 55 mile route with the support of CCSD. We’ll meet at 8:00am for this one so CCSD can brief us on the rules of the road, get waivers signed and do equipment checks. Remember this ride is for members of Team Red and Red Riders only. If you are interested in becoming a member of Team Red send me a message and I’ll tell you how to go about it.. (You don’t want to be a Red Rider if you can help it, that is why I ride)
