How to build a 1,024,000 mcd portable light

For anyone thinking about night riding this might be of interest:

How to build a 1,024,000 mcd portable light.

You've just built a bike light which is brighter than most car headlights and weighs in under two pounds with batteries.

Sounds good Smiling

Not sure how viable it is though, esp. reading the comments below the main article, but might be worth a look anyhow.

Drink your oxygen... (I'd rather not)

There are a bunch of sports nutrition drinks out there with 'increased oxygen'...

Read this in case you are interested and definitely before you buy!

Nutrition for endurance events

With the Highland Fling just around the corner thought I would post some information about nutrition. I am guessing most people will be looking at completing this event in 5-7hrs so you probably burn around serious energy during the day and if you don't get it right you may run out of juice before the finish line.

Your body gets energy from two main energy systems:

Anaerobic
Aerobic

Now depending on the intensity of the exercise depends on the percentage of each system it is using to get the energy from. As intensity does up it swings in favour of anaerobic and as intensity decreases, it moves towards aerobic.

Interesting article about training with Coca-Cola

For those that are looking at competiting in some endurance events thought I would share some information about using Coca-Cola during races, especially when you start to bonk.

Originally from this web site: http://www.pponline.co.uk/encyc/0204.htm

"Coca-cola: Many athletes use Coca-Cola as a sports drink, but does exercise really go better with Coke?

Top athletes seem to love Coke, not just as a dinner drink to wash down a cup of yoghurt, a cinnamon-raisin bagel, and a bowl of broccoli, but as a sports drink to provide a little fire during the last stages of a prolonged endurance competition.

New bike for Gavin

Gavin,
A mate of mind rides a Prophet and loves it. He bought it second hand from a mate who got it as an unwanted pressie from the better half. Didn't like it when he first rode it, actually went back to riding his Giant for a while. Got it serviced and set up properly for his weight and riding style and now says its the best bike he has ridden. Key here make sure it is set up properly when you take it for a test ride. I on the other hand ride a Kona, 03 Kahuna Deluxe, and can't speak highly enough of their quality and frame strength. I ride with all the style and finesse of an overweight thirty seven year old and it has consequently copped a thrashing, it's been flipped more times than I care to remember and aside from incidental breakages (derailer hanger and brake lever) is none the worse for wear. Definietly check out www.mtbr.com for reviews and try www.nsmb.com They may reviews of all the bikes you are looking at.

Hi All,

I thought it might be an idea to keep the plans for these two big events in a forum. So we can ride together, look out for one another, stay together.
I know that I am not sure who is doing what with who and staying where etc....
So the plan is to keep a running score of whats doing in a table format or the likes.
Here is my info for the events. Feel free to add your details.
