REGISTER
R E G I S T E R

For a relaxing weekend with fellow RWBTC members, enjoy a remote ride in the Santa Ynez Valley from June 2, 2017 to June 4, 2017.  Where you will ride by vistas of vineyards, farmlands, wildlife and small towns.  There will be two rides offered for Saturday and a Sunday recovery ride.  On the Saturday ride, one can explore one of the vineyards the valley has to offer and stop for lunch in one of the small towns on the way back.  The first route offers about 55 miles with 3200 ft of climbing.  The second route is 43 miles, 1970 ft. The Sunday recovery ride is 18 miles, 1100 ft. After the Sunday ride, breakfast is an option at Ellen's Danish Pancake House in Buellton. Levels A, B, C, and D riders are invited.

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:
