Cycle Epic, 2016 – Anna B

Cycle Epic, 2016 – Anna B

I don’t know what to write about the 2016 Flight Centre Active Travel Cycle Epic. It was a race that wasn’t even going to happen for me until three days prior to the event. The constant peer pressure of friends asking me in person and social media “have you entered the Epic yet? I think it’s your year” had me responding with “no way I have no form, I don’t think I am emotionally ready to put mysel... »

Team Blog: Going with the Flow, Jo Rowell

Setting goals and plans are all well and good but sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you just have to go with the flow. This was my experience over the past few months. Everything was on target, life was ticking along and my training-work-family balance was in sync … But then it wasn’t. Frustrating, as this can be one thing I’ve learned, as I get older is to tune into your body... »

Beat the pre-race butterflies

Beat the pre-race butterflies

The first round of our local race series, the 2016 Wild West Series (pew pew!), was hosted at Adare on Sunday. While I don’t really want to go and write a race report about it, it was the first race of the year and as such, I woke up that morning and immediately felt nervous. How was my form? How was everyone else form? Can I keep it upright? Such pressing questions were in the forefront of my min... »

BC Bike Race – Jo Rowell

BC Bike Race – Jo Rowell

   BC Bike Race – June/July 2015   The BC Bike Race described as the ultimate single track adventure. It certainly lived up to this tag line. A seven day mountain bike stage race completed in seven different locations around British Columbia, Canada with over 600 competitors from 26 countries. The website boosts that 70% of the riding was on single track and I reckon that was pretty bang... »

Kylie is Queensland’s Gravity State Champion!

Kylie is Queensland’s Gravity State Champion!

Earlier this year I raced at Garapine and it was freaking scary! Those tracks tested my skills and guts! Then to find out State Champs was going to be held there… aaarrgh! Since then I have treated myself with a visit to America, shredding bike trails in Colorado and Whistler. I am now a confident ‘caser’! (To case a jump means to come up short and landing on the backside of the lander... »

Efficient training for the time-strapped

Efficient training for the time-strapped

  Last training blog I posted here was about setting goals for future races, and I brushed over some basic training to get me there. This post is about developing strength and aerobic capacity, generally the ‘base’ part of the season that sees riders hit their biggest mileages, on a time budget. Most of my training programs and coaching is for the everyday rider; hey, it’s mountain biking aft... »

I was r... »

Sol-Cyclinic at the Hairy Mary 3hr Enduro!

Sol-Cyclinic at the Hairy Mary 3hr Enduro!

It’s been a couple of weeks since the Hairy Mary 3hr Enduro, in Gympie. We had an awesome crew of ladies head up including Kylie, Jaine, Jo R and Tracy, rocking our super rad kit. There were over 70 starters, pretty amazing for a women’s only race in Gympie! Personally, it was a great way to get back into the swing of racing, though the course was deceptively tough. The lack of balance... »

A slow road back, so what’s next?

A slow road back, so what’s next?

Last post I discussed a few tips to help those of you returning from illness or injury get back on track. We discussed doing what you can, gradually increasing your load and intensity and keeping focus towards the goal of better fitness. Well, it’s been a couple of weeks, and despite feeling a little like I have been hit by a sledgehammer (endurance miles + shift work can have that effect at... »

The road back to fit.

The road back to fit.

Sol-Cyclinic Team rider Anna has had some extended time off the bike recently, not because she wanted to but due to illness. Now she’s back on…read about her road to fitness below… When you have been off the bike a few months, it’s like the heavens open up and your own little ray of sunshine follows you when you can finally hop back on two wheels. This happened for me last ... »
