Cool Ride and Tie

The sixth annual Cool Ride & Tie has been scheduled for October 1,2011. A special thanks to Tony for both walking and using his GPS to determine the distance . It took him over four hours on Friday to complete his endeavor. The start is at the Foothills Ranch in Cool. We have one loop that totals about 5 miles in distance and a second loop that totals about 11 miles and includes the notorious Pig farm trail. At this point, I'm thinking about a 5 mile race, an 11 mile race, a 16 mile race, and either a 22 or 27 mile race. The long course distance is yet to be established. Tony and I plan to run the 11 mile distance Tuesday morning. Monday morning I will submit the paperwork to the state for their approval. I will keep you posted.

On March 21, 2011 Wall Street Journal ran an article titled "Bikes That Deserve a Hand". Essentially, more riders are using what's called hand cycling. Instead of peddling, the individual can use is arms instead of his feet. According to the article, the tricycle is becoming more popular for racing, exercising, and recreation. Apparently, this is a good option for anyone who's lower body is compromised but retains good hand and arm strength. This sounds like it could be a good cross training method as well. It is obvious that this is not good for trail use. Bike-- is an online store that you can check out. After I finish this blog I'm going to do that myself. This form of cardio seems interesting and especially good for developing upper body strength.

In 2010, the number of individuals completing US marathons set a record and for the first time reached over a half million(507, 000). Join the crowd and do it with your feet or with a hand cycle. There is no excuse. Saying, my knees are bad etc. is just not good enough.
