Do NOT make these Summer mistakes

 

Don't let SUMMER get you.


5 tips:

  1. Don't do the same rides or runs with the same people each week. Yes, our sport is friendly, but doing the same thing every week will just make you "average"

  2. Hydrate, but don't OVER hydrate. Overhydration can lead to imbalances in your body.

  3. Know your "Sweat Loss" Here's a detailed one.

  4. Be careful on high sugar drinks that can actually make you MORE thirsty or upset your stomach!

  5. Train indoors! Why? You can control the environment better, control sweat loss and actually go harder during your intervals because core temp is stabilized!

Avoid training atrocities by checking out our Social Media Accounts (links above):

Blackstock team wins Pisgah Stage race!

Blackstock team wins Pisgah Stage race!

The Pisgah Stage race is a 5 day timed stage race in the Pisgah National Forest. Pisgah has some of the most extreme, steep, technical, gnarly demanding singletrack in the country, oh, and it's in a rainforest. It's no joke, the climbing is brutally steep and you get zero rest on the descents that are equally as hard. You can't lose focus for a second, or you may end up like one of the teams that raced, walking your mountain bike out of the forest in two pieces!

Racers in India - The different ways to the top

Cycling in India is being loved by commuters and racers alike. A lot of the population enjoys this way of fitness.

The road racing community is growing and a lot of riders look for various opportunities to make a living out of racing in India, only to fizzle out in the larger scheme of things as the sport is at a very growing stage in the country.

Coming This Fall….

We (@TotalCyclist) have been asked over the years on why we just have cycling camps for “Women”. Truth be told, we’ve never had a women’s only policy, it was just that we felt that there was, and still is, a tremendous niche in the growing population that is female cycling.

Men, and women, have attended DivaCamps in the past. Now we feel it’s time for a unique concept. WE will call it Dude Camp. Here’s the rub. All of camps are NON exclusive. Yes, we realize that women do enjoy the company of other female cyclists when riding. We also realize that men enjoy the company of other men. when riding. Half wheel the hell out of each other. (Men and women).

Coming in the next few months is a new property, in the high mountains, that TotalCyclist will be using for some really challenging climbing camps. This will be for women, men, couples and a mix.

For continuity sake we will offer several different kinds of Camps.

DudeCamp: Kind of a Beer, bourbon, bikes, for the gentlemen.

DivaCamp: This continues the concept of www.divacyclingcamp.com

Dudes and Divas: This will be .a huge mix of camps that would appeal to both! Running, cycling, triathlon and more. These will be half, one, and several day camps.

So, if you and your friends. (Dudes of Divas) want to have an epic experience with the best coaching team for any kind of Camp…reach out to us. We value suggestions on types of camps as well.
