Looks like high winds Tuesday and Wednesday so, to be safe, we are postponing the ride to Thursday.  The calendar has been updated. 


Re: Professional bike fit, recommendations?

Cinnamon Miras
 

I responded to Gabe, but I thought I'd respond here for everyone too. Yes, I definitely want a thorough, professional bike fit. 1 hr session isn't going to cut it. 

 When I bought my bike the bike shop did a fit, but they had a real challenge. Admitting that my leg length didn't correspond to my arm length/reach. I also know that my left leg is 6mm shorter than my right. They never suggested a shim and at the time I was clueless. I was ok riding outside 2x/wk about 30 miles each ride. I think because I was on and off the bike with traffic lights. Switching to indoor trainer and I'm having issues with my left knee. I know my road bike has endurance geometry and my end goal is a full gran fondo. With my body parts being so unsymmetrical I want someone who has a thorough knowledge of body mechanics. I didn't pay $$$$ for my first road bike to be limited on how and where I can ride it, LOL

I also want to thank everyone who has given a suggestion, I'm sending emails asking specific questions and will then decide where to go. I'm so grateful to be apart of this group, membership is worth every penny!!! I hope to join a group ride soon.

Hi All,

I should probably clarify what I said...

I'm a rider with lots of experience looking for a "high performance" fit. The "high performance" part is the extra bit I got from 3dbikefit. (And it has a "high performance" price tag.) The OP's message made it sound like they were also looking for this.

If you are a new-ish rider... don't over-think it. Pedro, 3dbikefit, and your local bike store will all give you a fit that will avoid injuries and keep you comfortable for long hours in the saddle. And definitely try on different saddles!

I recently got a "I'm buying a new bike" Retul fit at https://www.3dbikefit.com/ and I highly recommend it. It seems to match your description. It's pretty expensive, but I feel like I got my money's worth. For example, there are several things about my posture on the bike that were pointed out... and I'm working to improve this in my training. They were also able to point out some of the "idiosyncracies" of my body that helped explain why certain things happen. I was not getting fit for a track bike, but when I applied some of the fit to my track bike... I was able to spin up to a higher RPM on the rollers without bouncing or losing control (135 -> .155). They also sell custom footbeds... and I've been very pleased with those, too.

Prior to this (2019), I had gone to https://fittedbypedro.com/ , which I don't recommend. The bike fit might have been OK, but I didn't get the "physical therapy or kinesiology" that I had been hoping for. I think he did a range-of-motion screening, but I don't remember it being particularly thorough. I also suspect that the fit might not have been "best" for me... but... it's been 3 years and it's not an exact science.

Good luck!

Hello Everyone,

Can anyone suggest an expert bike fitter? Someone who has background knowledge of physical therapy or kinesiology.

I bought my first road bike just a few years ago, had the bike fit where they focused on knee angle. I didn't have any problems with pain, maybe because of all traffic lights I was moving all the time. 

Life changes and now I do rides indoors on my smart trainer 2x/week sometimes 3. I had inner knee pain/discomfort with my left knee, kept going and it got worse then my right knee was sore. I stopped, rested, ice etc, etc I took off my SPD and put on flat pedals. I was hit n miss riding, mostly missing. With Primavera coming I started riding indoors again regularly and inner left knee pain is back. So, clipped or flats I'm having the same problem and need this fixed asap. If you know of a professional bike fitter (not a company trained one) please let me know.

Thanks,

CCRS #5 - Olive Hill #RideChange

Julia Walker
 

For those planning to join Anne and I this Saturday for the Olive Hill ride, please note a slight route change: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38467369. We have removed crossing 84 twice so the route is a bit shorter.

Please park at the lot just past the visitor's center. If you would like to cut an additional ~6 miles, you could meet us at the base of the Dumbarton. There is a parking lot but no restrooms, so allow time to stop on the way in if you need. We should be at the base of the bridge ~9:20. Our first regroup will be at the benches on the other side of the bridge so you could also meet us there. 

Please print and bring your own cue sheet if you are not using RidewithGPS, attached.

Thanks
Julia & Anne

Hi Cinnamon,

 

Several years ago a group from Innersport (https://innersport.com/ - from Oakland/El Cerrito) did a presentation of their bike fitting technology at a club meeting. A couple folks from our club used their bike fitting services.

 

Dr Jess ( Dr Jessica Greaux) at Innersport does the fittings. I went to her for a fitting and it made a huge difference for me – I was having knee problems as well. I was very happy with the entire process and everything I learned going thru it.

Dr Jess is a Chiropractic Doctor and has won a lot of recognition as a sports doctor (https://innersport.com/about/dr-greaux). She treats high level athletes as well as cruisers like myself. Check out the webpage for her qualifications and how she approaches bike fitting. Pre-pandemic, her sessions were at her house in El Cerrito, not at the Oakland facility.

 

Good luck, whoever you choose.

Monday Morning Donut Ride

Robert Tashjian
 

Donut Riders,

 

Just wanted to remind those of you joining us at the Chevron station or at Paseo/Grimmer that we won’t be doing the usual loop at the beginning. You should plan on meeting us about 10 minutes or so earlier than usual. The rwgps route is https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38261711

 

For those of you meeting at Isherwood, we’ll meet at 8:30 with an 8:45 roll time.

 

We will not be stopping at all the bathrooms, they are there for reference/emergencies only.

 

Rob

When:  It's going to be a scenic rolling hill ride.  We will be meeting at 8:30am and will roll at 8:45am. 


Where:  Buena Vista Park (street parking)


Please download this latest RWGPS route onto your ride computer device: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/38431063


No cue sheet will be handed out and no riders will be left behind.


All riders need to be fully vaccinated.  Bring a mask and use it as needed per CDC guidelines for COVID safety.


Routes and Rest Stops:


First water and restroom stop will be at Alviso-Adobe Park (mile 12.5). Then we will re-group at the top of Felter/Sierra Road and check out the scenery at the top and report if the parking lot is full or not 🙂. 

Then descend down to Calaveras and climb back up the wall and onto the false summit while enjoying the green rolling hills and checking out the reservoir from afar.

After a re-group at the false summit, then stop by the Alviso-Adobe Park again for water and use of restrooms. (mile 44.5)


Please bring 2 bottles (more if you want) for hydration.  Now is a good time, I believe, to enjoy the green hills in this cooler weather without needing as much hydration.  I hope that everyone has a chance to stop (safely) and take photos along the way in the hills.


Mark will be leading the ride with me.  See you on Saturday!

Fifth Monday MMRR

Robert Tashjian
 

This Monday is a special edition of the MMRR – The Monday Morning Donut Ride. We will circle the south bay and return via the Bay Trail and Dumbo Bridge, with a coffee/donut stop at Rogers Deli & Donuts in Mt. View. Yes, you can get sandwiches/bagels/other things there also. The ride is only a little longer than our usual routes at 48 miles, M paced, and the entire route is paved. Usual start across from Isherwood Staging, meet at 8:30 for an 8:45 roll. Usual pickups at Paseo/Stevenson and Paseo/Grimmer (be about 10 minutes early as we’re skipping the usual loop at the beginning of the ride).

 

Let me know if you’re going to ride(and a donut preference if you care), I’m going to order donuts ahead of time to ensure a good selection and I’d like to have an approximate count.

Then descend down to Calaveras and climb back up the wall and onto the false summit while enjoying the green rolling hills and checking out the reservoir from afar.

After a re-group at the false summit, then stop by the Alviso-Adobe Park again for water and use of restrooms. (mile 44.5)


Please bring 2 bottles (more if you want) for hydration.  Now is a good time, I believe, to enjoy the green hills in this cooler weather without needing as much hydration.  I hope that everyone has a chance to stop (safely) and take photos along the way in the hills.


Mark will be leading the ride with me.  See you on Saturday!

Hello Thursday Riders,
Once again Ron Mitchell will be leading for me tomorrow.  Steve Young, if available, will sweep.  Please print the attached route sheet.  There are options to skip climbing - Kilkare is out and back, Westbridge can be skipped and you can also skip Bernal. Coffee at Peet's.

I plan to be back next week to ride to Alum Rock.  Missing my riding buddies!  Thanks to Ron, Judy and Steve and Randy for leading the rides for me.

Hi Everyone,

Barry has changed the start location for this Sunday as he found out that the original spot is closed. Please look at ffbc.org for the new start location.

Hope to see you all this Sunday and please let anyone else know who may be joining us.

Thanks!

Cinderella Reg, anyone interested?

Cinnamon Miras
 

Hello Everyone,

A long time ago I signed up for the Primavera and the Cinderella rides because they were 3 weeks apart. Everything was cancelled and I let my registrations ride over. 

Now they are back to back so I can't do both rides. Does anyone wants the Cinderella registration, 100K ride on April 9th? Can you spread the word?

Thanks, 

Cinnamon
