As altitude increases above sea level, atmospheric (or barometric) pressure drops with a parallel decrease in the amount of oxygen available at the blood/air interface in the lung alveolus. Hypoxia (a low blood oxygen level) occurs and results in a decrease in the amount of oxygen delivered to the cell to do physical work.

Julian Gordon, February 22, 2005 -- Bicycle computers have reached a very sophisticated level considering their recent ancestry as the simple cyclometer. Top of the line models now measure speed, altitude, temperature, pulse rate, and power meters are also available (ref 1). However, at this time, the only practical way of measuring wind effects is in a wind tunnel. Wind effects and drag are important in determining how much energy one is expending, and clearly it would be advantageous to have real time-determination.

Your bike can stand to lose a little weight. There are many cycling instances in which being lighter is better. One place you can drop a bit of weight is in your bicycle wheels. If you have some funds, you can trade in your conventional wheel set for a lightweight one that might have just a very few spokes (some even have three or four aerodynamic, bladed spokes).

While touring in Costa Rica for two months, it was very apparent that there was a major difference between Costa Rican dogs and American dogs. It is rare for a Costa Rican dog to bark at bicyclists or passing pedestrians. The only dog that even attacked me dog was one belonging to an American. The dog owner's excuse was "He [the dog] hates bikes". The stupidity of the dog owner regarding dogs irked me as much as the dog. The fact is, dogs do not hate bikes. Unless directed otherwise by their owners, dogs enjoy running after, barking at, and nipping at deer, cattle, bicyclists and fast-walking pedestrians. Dogs must be trained by dog owners not to pursue these activities. Costa Rica is proof that this can be, and is being, accomplished

The vehicle code was original intended for safety and efficiency of traffic. It is increasingly being used for another purpose: discouraging cars from roads. Because no differentiation is made between cars and bicycles, it also discourages bicycles. A simple example is the placing of "No right turn 7-9AM" signs in my neighborhood. Obviously, safety or traffic efficiency is not served. The increase in travel time for bicycles decreases its usage. The problem could have been solved by placing "Except Bicycles" on the signs, but many traffic engineers conveniently ignore bicycles

When you do it right, cycling is enjoyable. The enjoyment of cycling is the most important reason for doing it. For some people, it is economical transportation, or a way to exercise for health, or competitive racing, or provides the means of entering areas from which motor traffic is excluded, or transportation that doesn't use petroleum, but, in today's U.S.A., if you don't enjoy cycling you won't long continue doing it. Like any other activity, if you do it wrong you will find it unpleasant and unsatisfactory. The important thing is to cycle properly so that you do enjoy it.

The ergogenic potential of caffeine is not exactly a recent phenomenon. Indeed, there is documentation to suggest that it has been used to enhance performance for more than 30 years. However, with caffeine having been removed from the banned list of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) earlier this year, now may be a good time to revisit the topic.

What causes skilled and experienced athletes to ‘choke’ under the many pressures of competition? This question, highly relevant in the wake of Paula Radcliffe’s dramatic and high profile collapse during the recent Olympic marathon, has been investigated by a team of Australian researchers, who set out to examine the role of self-consciousness and trait (or dispositional) anxiety as predictors of choking in sport.
