Thoughts About Performance and Nourishment for Your Soul

This is a very lengthy post, however, I hope you’ll consider it a worthy investment of time. As the leader of this club, I am tasked with creating and nurturing a culture for a group of more than 800 people who have a variety of divergent opinions about cycling, respect for others, the law, what…

The resurection of a club blog.

Cycle Folsom has been around for nearly a decade now. Being an all volunteer organization, the club’s activities, interests, service levels and member involvement go through what I consider to be normal ebbs and flows. As new members come in, they bring new talents, interests, and enthusiasm. And then things change. Those same members move…

Overnight Precipitation Made for Cool Ride

Steven Paine had posted a “Deer Valley Loop” ride for Saturday, 2/19. The weather forecast was a bit dicey; chance of rain was 50% in the morning and it was certain to rain overnight. Steve sent out an email notice Friday evening that he was canceling the ride. I didn’t see the notice, and Joel…

The spectrum of cycling talent within Cycle Folsom is pretty broad. Most of our Members range from “inspired cycling enthusiasts” to “performance-oriented cycling devotees.” Over the years, Cycle Folsom has seen many of its members make the move to the amateur racing circuit, too. The early race season has begun and I just received a…

November 20th ARP-Levee Rd-Roseville

Saturday 6am…..getting up and checking weather conditions. Wet roads, slight sprinkles and roads seem to be drying. 6:30am, taking in the usual bowl of oatmeal pre-ride breakfast meal. Watching the news wondering if the rain will hold off until the ride is completed today. 7:20am start to get dressed, piecing together what layers to wear.…

Levi’s King Ridge Gran Fondo

This past weekend, many folks associated with Cycle Folsom ventured over to Sonoma County to ride in Levi Leipheimer’s back yard, his second annual King Ridge Gran Fondo. The measly 103 mile course only boasted about 9,000 feet of climbing with some pitches hitting 18%. Sounds like something right up Cycle Folsom’s alley. The weather…

Fox ‘n Hound, Cameron Park

“Chase or be chased” is one of the Cycle Folsom motto’s. For this ride, the Peloton group were the sly foxes, and us Performance riders would be the hungry hounds trying to chase them down. I did the math. It would be nearly impossible to catch the foxes with their 30 minute lead over a…

Tuesday Climbing Ride

I think we all had a great ride Tues night! The route was cut a little short due to the waning daylight, but what we lacked in distance and climbing was made up with speed. We all rolled out of Folsom on time. I really only had one goal for the night even though the…
