The 3rd Annual US Pro Cycling Challenge is well underway in Colorado. Being that Peak Cycles in Golden, Colorado participated in the first two years of the race, we’ve had a chance to field many of the questions asked by fans and sports enthusiast. In fact, just the other day, our friends, Team Jelly Belly were in the shop!
Pro rider’s bikes are a hot conversation topic. Many are curious as to what the pro’s are riding and what they can do to their own bikes to gain the advantages that the pro riders seem to have. Following are few favorite questions:
How much does a pro’s bike weigh? Typically, a road bicycle that the USA Pro Cycling Challenge participants race on will weigh around 15 pounds. You might be wondering, “What does a 15 pound bike feel like?” Light! See for yourself. We have a variety of road bikes and mountain bikes in the shop to try out for feel. You’d be surprised what a difference a lighter bike makes in climbing.
What makes the bikes so light? The bike frames in and of themselves are made of lightweight materials but having light weight bike parts and bike accessories keeps the bike light in addition to the light weight frame. For our customers, it’s easy to swap out older bike components with newer, lighter bike parts. Granted, it’s not the same as riding a pro riders bike, but every reduction in bike weight means you have the opportunity to go faster.
Where have the professional riders raced in Golden, Colorado and can I ride there? The last two years of the US Pro Cycling Challenge had racers ride through downtown Golden and up through Lookout Mountain. This year, if you are visiting Stage 6 Loveland – Fort Collins or heading over to Stage 7 Denver, stop by Peak Cycles bike shop and we’ll be happy to tell you the route.
We’re loving the good cycling vibe that the US Pro Cycling Challenge brings to our state. Good luck to all racing the ProCycling Challenge!

Bike fits – we’ve heard about them, talked about them, but somehow, most of us don’t get one. And why not? They say the quickest way to get faster on the bike is with a bike fit. Sure, fit impacts comfort but it also impacts technique which is crucial to preventing overuse injuries and how you ride. Meaning it directly affects how much power you can efficiently deliver to the pedals.
So why don’t more cyclist get a bike fit? For some, they wonder why it cost so much? Or, what is included in the service? How long does it take? And, many wonder when is the best time to get a fit? More often than not, the biggest reason cyclist opt out of getting a bike fit is because they falsely believe bike fits are for professional riders/ racers.
Bike fits aren’t just for professional riders – they are for anyone who rides whether they are a beginner or advanced rider. So, why should you schedule a bike fit? You should get one because you want to get the most out of your experience on the bike.

In a sport based on such a highly repetitive action, like pedaling, the first line of defense against injury is a proper bike fit. So what is a proper bike fit? It doesn’t simply consist of setting a saddle height and bar reach. In today’s market, bike brands are designing some top-end rides for us to enjoy, but with these bikes come different geometries.

Set Goals – For some, early season races are just about getting harder efforts in and saddle time. However, having defined goals can help reduce pre race anxiety and also help you better evaluate your performance post race. Identify what you want to accomplish with this event whether it be a targeted Heart Rate or Power zone, a solid nutrition plan, or attacking certain areas on the race course.
Race Route – Know the course and the conditions. Spring weather can alter race course conditions considerably. Take into consideration the bike parts you’ll be racing and confirm you have the bike components and gear needed to successfully race the course. For mountain bike components – consider tire selection carefully when riding wet and muddy trails.
Race Day Rituals – Designing and refining a pre-event routine is an important part of building a successful race season. Does having a checklist of race day activities help structure your preparation to the start line? Include items such as nutrition, hydration, clothes, gear, extra bike parts and basic bike tools. This way, you won’t be forgetting anything as you prepare for your start. Maybe visualization, mantras, and breathing exercises are your thing. Regardless, early season races offer a chance to build on race day rituals that have helped you in the past and also enhance your support for the season going forward.
Start Line Mental State – Your thoughts, emotions, and pre race behaviors are components of your mental state, so take inventory of your mental state and align them with your goals. It’s easy early Season to compare your training and fitness to others. Here is where having your race plan and goals specific to this event comes in handy.
Success Parameters – Evaluate your results based on your goals. What worked? What didn’t? What can you do next race to get a better result? Be objective and explore how your mental and physical training helped prepare you for this event. Remember to evaluate your bike and cycling accessory selections. Did you race the right bike? Would a different wheel set make a difference? Did you suffer from mechanicals? Now is the time to dial in, replace, and buy the bike parts that you need going into your next event.

If grueling climbs, steep and narrow descents and tight switch-backs are your thing, then White Ranch may be the trail for you. White Ranch Trail, located in Golden, Colorado near the Peak Cycles bicycle shop, offers an extensive trail system of 20 miles of multi-use trails over both gentle and rugged terrain. Here’s our take on this popular trail.
With steep grades, loose rock, and fast descents along sloping terrain, this trail is a favorite for advanced mountain bike riding on the Front Range. Rugged and rocky steep climbs challenge even the best of riders while smooth and gentle meadow shots offer a release from the death grip on the brakes. Your hard climbing efforts are rewarded with sweeping views of the Great Plains and the Denver skyline.
It all depends on what you call “bad.” Starting at Belcher Hill with an extended, technical climb up can be a challenge. If you aren’t up for that, you might consider that a negative. Also, with two foot + drop offs, you need to be ready for technical sections and not a walk in the park type of ride. Take note: hissing isn’t just for aggravated riders or flat tires. There are plenty of snakes on this trail.
Not having the right bike parts or gear. A full suspension mountain bike is recommended to easily navigate rocky sections, water bars, steps and drop offs. Also, because of a majority of the park is exposed, the sun exposure in the summer months can be brutal. A hydration pack is recommended not only to carry plenty of fluids but also for easier drinking riding over technical terrain.
The holidays have passed, the New Year has come and gone, and now, the 2013 Ride and Race Season planning is underway. Whenever you want to achieve something, you have to have a definite goal. As such, it’s important to plan your season right. Whether you are a casual rider or a competitive cyclist, training, racing, recovering and having the appropriate gear, tools, bike setup to reach your goals is critical.
For starters, what are you’re 2013 cycling goals? As mentioned in our recent blog post, it’s important to make your goals SMART. As in, specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and time-bound. With that being said, Colorado offers world class riding and racing. A few of our top race and ride recommendations include:
How do you plan to train? Riding in cooler temps and shorter days tugs at motivation. However, having a few rides and races on your radar can help you maintain determination. Remember, buddying up, eating well, or even joining us for our local shop ride in Golden, Colorado can help build training momentum.
Is your bike ready? Our post, Winterizing Your Bike: What’s In Your Tool Kit? offers some great tips for bike maintenance during winter riding. But is your bike set for the 2013 season? Do you need a new bike or maybe even need to replace old bike parts? Sometimes getting a bike fit can help better position you for a season of successful riding.
When you’re working toward a goal that’s important to you, the last thing you want is to face an obstacle or unexpected challenge. Set up your 2013 right by planning ahead, getting your road bike or mountain bike in order, and getting the gear and resources you need. With the right mental attitude and the best bike parts, your successful training and race prep is well underway.
Healthy Holidays! Holiday parties, shorter days, cooler temps, all temptations pulling us away from time on our bikes. While this time of year poses unique challenges, there are ways to maintain fitness, reduce the holiday stress levels, and prepare for next year’s riding season.
Eat Well: The holidays offer irresistible food temptations adding extra pounds to our waste lines and robbing us of precious energy. Instead of reaching for the holiday goodies, opt to choose your bike nutrition when you need it most- on the bike. Being mindful of your food choices can positively affect your energy levels and help maintain your ability to ride and perform better.
Buddy Up: Shorter days creates less motivation and time to ride. Combat the winter woes by asking a friend to join you for a trainer session. Committing to a time, place, and a friend creates structure and accountability.
Get Visual: Trying something new like a training video or dvd can add a new dimension to your riding schedule keeping it fresh and inspiring you to get on the bike even during the hectic holidays.
Shop Ride: Join us on Sunday mornings at Peak Cycles in Golden, Colorado at 9:00 AM for our shop rides. Nothing is more fun that joining a group of passionate cyclist out for a morning ride.
Relax: If you just can’t find the time or motivation to ride during the holiday season, at least feed your velo passion with pictures of new road bikes , new mountain bikes, and cool bike parts. It will feed your spirit and breathe life into next year’s bike season.
Maintaining a holiday fitness plan doesn’t have be hard. Be flexible, mix it up, and enjoy!
Most cyclists, whether competitive or not, enjoy being at the front of the pack. Sure, it’s safer, but it’s also cool to be in front. As the Thanksgiving Holiday is right around the corner, now’s the time to position yourself to be at the front of the pack – shopping that is!
