I couldn't have asked for better conditions for my Commercial MEL tomorrow. And I've already flown with this check pilot for the same flight, (he did my End of Course ride for a 141 school)

But hey look what I found while planning from RCM to OKC >picrelated
Who says he's only into the Airlines when he has V-way Intersections named after him?

/BRT/: Bike Racing and Training, 'Attack Off The Front' edition

Previous thread (currently on auto-sage): >>1041744

IN THIS THREAD, we discuss:
* Training for bike racing (road, MTB, track)
* Bike racing tactics and strategy
* Bike handling skills relating to racing (pacelining, maneuvering within the pack, blocking, when to attack, etc)
* Your races
* Pro races
* Equipment choices (including power meters, heart rate monitors, etc)
* Anything and everything relating to bicycle racing and training

When discussing power, post W/kg (watts per kilogram), not just watts.

If you're new to bike racing and need to get started, you can start with The Cyclists Training Bible (aka CTB); there's a copy of 3rd Edition online you can peruse:
http://www.lronman.ru/docs/CyclistBible3.pdf (please buy a copy if you like it).

If you're interested in Power Meters for your bike, here's a good article that covers most of the choices available on the market:
https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2016/09/power-meters-buyers-guide2016-edition.html

If you're interested in doing some reading on basic race tactics and strategy, you can check out the following two books:
"Racing Tactics for Cyclists" by Thomas Prehn
"Reading the Race" by Jamie Smith and Chris Horner

Ask questions, and share your knowledge, expertise, and experience; everyone interested in training to be a better cyclist are welcome.

Electric Bicycles.

No.1051756 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Has anyone here got an electric bike? I've been looking into getting one but they're rather expensive, especially the higher-end ones.

Are E-Bikes just a meme or are they actually decent for commuting longer distances?

O I wanna fly a plane. I did exactly what my parents said. I went to college and got a boring IT job because they told me to. But now i'm a grown man and I wanna learn to fly a god damn airplane.

How do you do it? What's the cheapest way to take to the skies with no experience?
