#160: Tulsa Tough, recovery after a big event

6/13/2019
More
Selene is tough. We all knew that. But last weekend, she went to Oklahoma for an event known as Tulsa Tough. The question of the day? Which is tougher: Tulsa, or Selene? Easy there, champ. Patrick’s idea of a hard ride has been downgraded since Dirty Kanza. He’s still in...

#159: max heart rate formulas, Patrick's race at Dirty Kanza

6/5/2019
More
This week we begin with a reader question regarding max heart rate. Will that “220 minus your age” formula accurately predict your max? And if not, does it matter? And if it matters and it’s not accurate, what should you be using instead? Selene talks max heart rate and the...

#158: Winging it, Dirty Kanza equipment

5/29/2019
More
This week Selene admits that she’s been taking a fresh approach to some of the events she’s doing. And it’s not some new training regiment guaranteed to make you kick butt. Instead, she’s decided just to wing it. With Dirty Kanza just a few days away, Patrick is in the...

#157: Keystone Offroad, the wisdom that comes from cycling

5/23/2019
More
It’s been said that predicting a bad future is a way to set a negative intention. Last week Selene suggested she might not be 100 percent ready for the Keystone Offroad. It might not have been her most successful day ever. But clearly, she’s had worse days, right? She had...

#156: Packing for events, trash on the course

5/17/2019
More
Selene isn’t ready. In a good quarter of a century she says she’s not quite ready for this coming weekend’s race. Yeah, we had the same reaction. After all, if Selene isn’t ready, who is? But that’s her central issue for this week’s show: preparation. She delineates between fun suffering...

#155: Exercise personality, Shimano GRX

5/9/2019
More
This week we shake things up a bit and Selene takes the reins of the show. Patrick talks about his longest ever day, mileage-wise, on the bike. Selene recently reported on a new study on personality and exercise. And if you think that cycling is the domain of lone-wolf introverts,...

#154: Lu Lacka Wyco, Super Skaggs Grasshopper

5/2/2019
More
Last weekend, Selene rode the Lu Lacka Wyco Hundo, a 100-mile ride in northeaster Pennsylvania with its share of dirt roads, steep hills and, on this day, plenty of cold weather and rain. Let’s just say it was an adventure, but the best part was when she met Paceline listener...

#153: underground races, lightweight vs. aero

4/25/2019
More
Pennsylvania in spring is a good place to be a cyclist. The landscape glows in technicolor and the events can be unusual with equal doses of nutty, fun and camaraderie. Selene shares some of the unusual events that she does, like the 666 Cinder Race Series. For her, these oddball...

4/5/2019
More

3/28/2019
More
We’re gratified to report that we’ve been hearing from listeners who have been getting health issues checked out as a result of Mark Weir and Jess Cera’s stories. Selene just did the Hell of Hunterdon and it sounds like she says the first word in the event’s name was well-earned. It...

3/21/2019
More
Before Lance and LeMond, and 7-11 and Motorola, there was a group of cyclists paving the way for American racing on the International level. They were the Raleigh Boys of the 60s and 70s. The Raleigh Boys set the benchmark as the first fully sponsored American Cycling Team competing abroad...

#149: eMTB world championships, Jim Cummins and Dirty Kanza

3/7/2019
More
The UCI has announced the first-ever eMTB world championships. There will be multiple categories for both men and women and the prize money will be equal. Of course, there are people who think that this should be sanctioned by the American Motorcycle Association, not the Union Cycliste Internationale. And then...

#148: Selene begins her season, pad placement in shorts and bibs

2/28/2019
More
It may be February and she may live in Pennsylvania, but Selene has started her season with the first of the season’s Spring Classics. It was cold and reasonably wet, but she says all in all, this year’s edition was more pleasant than last year’s. Patrick takes on another listener...

#147: Riding at night, post-work ride and meal timing, establishing routine

2/21/2019
More
Again, we take on some listener questions this week (you guys are killing it!). Selene takes a look at night riding and how to get past the fear of not being able to see all that much, even with the addition of lights. She also gives her take on the...

#146: Planning training for a long season, introducing a runner to cycling

2/14/2019
More
It’s reader questions once again this week. Selene was asked how to structure a training plan so that a racer can maintain a high level of fitness year around, especially if there are six “A” events spaced throughout the season. Most training plans start from zero, and honestly, how many...

2/7/2019
More

#143: Eating on the bike, picking a custom frame, visiting NAHBS

1/24/2019
More
You’d think eating is easy. We’ve all been doing it longer than we can remember. But eating on the bike while pedaling hard enough to make people miss the couch isn’t easy. If it was, we wouldn’t be getting listeners asking about how best to execute so they don’t bonk....
