WCA Nutrition Blog – Research Survey

By |June 28th, 2016|News, Nutrition|Comments Off on WCA Nutrition Blog – Research Survey|

Hello cycling members!

To date, there is little research in the nutritional practices of women in cycling, with most of the research being done on male cyclists. Why is this? Instantly, a flood of thoughts come to my mind. But in my best attempt to keep this posting as unbiased as possible, I will refrain from sharing my opinion on unjust treatment of women in sports. Rather, I hope to remedy this situation and contribute to a small but growing number of interesting studies done with looking at different nutritional practices between men and women, blended with current nutrition interest for endurance athletes of all levels.

That said, I dedicate this month’s Nutrition blog to giving you a chance to voice your opinion on your nutritional practices. I want to learn from you, and further the research being done to meet endurance athlete’s needs, and acknowledge the different approaches taken by men and women, and some possible reasons behind it. With these results, I will write an article describing these differences! Additionally, you will receive a specialized e-book on 7 different nutrient-dense grains, endurance specific benefits and use, and a scrumptious recipe to enjoy.

I would really appreciate you taking 10 minutes of your time to contribute. Click HERE to take the WCA Nutrition Survey.

I’ll be back next month with the usual Nutrition interest blog, including great recipes…

Best of Health,
Sarah Weber, RD.

Fourth Annual femme/VELO in Whitefish, MT

By |June 27th, 2016|News|Comments Off on Fourth Annual femme/VELO in Whitefish, MT|

femme/VELO invites women of all skill levels and abilities to join us for a mass-start, timed ride through the scenic Flathead Valley. We’re offering 3 course options this year: 160.9km (100 miles), 100km (62.1 miles), and 50km (31 miles). While this isn’t a race we encourage you to challenge yourself, push yourself to untested limits and walk away from femme/VELO knowing you’ve done something you’ve never done before. Whether that is racing against the clock, riding to beat a personal best, completing a 50km or 100km or Century distance for the first time, riding to celebrate a personal achievement, riding for the love of the bicycle and the open road, or whatever your reason to ride femme/VELO provides you with an encouraging, friendly environment to help you rise up to the road and conquer it!
