We had so much fun during Flywheel's Tour de Fly that we want everyone to byob to spin class! (...bring your own best. what did you think we meant?)
if you've attended an indoor spin class, you know the physical demands can be very different than a run or casual ride. classes are typically 45-60 minutes, the studio is rarely air conditioned, and you're riding your bike at a high intensity. the right fuel and hydration strategy is key to success!

Recently we talked about ways you can combat the stresses put on your body when it is exposed to heat and humidity. But have you ever wondered why we need to spend extra attention to hydration during the summer?
It starts (and ultimately ends) with thermoregulation, which when functioning efficiently helps keep the body cool.

Near the end of every year, cycling apparel brand Rapha poses a challenge to riders around the world: ride 500 kilometers (around 310 miles) between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. This may seem easy enough, but once you throw in the usually less-than-enjoyable weather that time of year, holidays (and the usual travel and family obligations that come with them), and the abbreviated daylight hours, it starts to get a little inconvenient.
I usually complete the Festive 500 by chipping away at the mileage a little every day, with a few days of rest here and there to make time for family and the holidays. This last year, with more obligations than ever, I decided to get a little crazy, and try and complete the distance in one ride, and convince some of my more gullible/adventurous friends to join me.
