Fall Climbing Rides October - November - Leader Tina & Harro
FALL CLIMBING RIDES ARE HERE!!!
Have you ever wanted to reach new heights? Would you like to see new and beautiful places? Are you looking for a way to help keep off the holiday weight gain? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the club has a great series of rides for you!!!
Tina and Harro are going to lead a six week climbing series. This is for the rider who has some experience with riding in the mountains. The object is to increase cardiovascular endurance, climbing power, and cardiovascular efficiency while riding at 70% of your maximum effort (meaning a pace which you can maintain while talking).
Rides begin on October 3rd and will be posted on the club calendar with route slips, start locations and roll out times. In the event of rain, the ride will be cancelled, and rotated to the next week so that they may be done in succession. Each week the rides increase in miles and elevation gain.
October 3 - Highway 38 (Damnation Alley) to Forest Falls/Angelus Oaks Fork 44 miles 3,500 Ft.
October 10- Oak Glen 44 miles 4,200 Ft.
October 17 - Claremont to Mt. Baldy via East Fork (this ride begins at the Claremont train station) 54
miles 5,400 Ft.
October 24 - Jenk's Lake 65 miles 6,500 Ft.
October 31 - La Canada/Flintridge to Newcomb's Ranch 63 miles 7,400 Ft.
November 7 - Wrightwood to Newcomb's Ranch 65 miles 8,200 Ft.

Lost Art of the Group Ride
How You Use Your Leg Muscles
Interesting article on what muscles you actually use when you are pedaling. there is room for a little skepticism as this is coming from a mtb/bmx site. It would be great to get more info on such things from the science perspective. Here is the start of the article( continued HERE):
One of the most persistent myths in the mountain biking world surrounds
the pedal stroke and goes something like this: " Without being attached
to the pedals you can not use your hamstrings properly, which forces you
to rely too much on the quads to power the pedal stroke. By not being
able to curl the knee joint during the upstroke of the pedal stroke you
create muscular imbalances and tire out the quads faster." That is what
most of us have been told. However, this understanding of which muscles
are used and how they are used during a pedal stroke is completely
wrong and potentially dangerous over the long run.
When I ask why
someone thinks that the muscles are used that way during the pedal
stroke, I am invariably led to some variation of this picture/ chart:
