Fettverbrennen macht keinen Spaß


#radfahren #pulsmeter #gravel #cycling #heart rate

Nachdem ich vorletzte Woche versucht habe, beim Radfahren meinen Puls im Fettverbrennungsbereich (im Track grün bis gelb) zu halten – was ich extrem laaangweilig fand – habe ich heute dann nur auf meine Intuition gehört: Ich fahre offensichtlich gerne am persönlichen Maximalpuls (oder drüber :fearful:), im Track orange bis rot dargestellt. War eine kleine Runde und etwas chaotisch mit einigen Sackgassen, aber nachdem ich bemerkt hatte, dass ich mein Smartphone vergessen hatte, wollte ich bei einer größeren Panne dann doch nicht so weit von zuhause weg sein.

Motherload


Searching for freedom and connection in a gas-powered, digital and divided world.

Motherload is a crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.

Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. Hauling babies via car was not only unsustainable but took the freedom and adventure out of life, and Liz felt trapped. She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more, and Motherload was born.

In the joy and dedication of the cargo bike community Liz saw that the choice to live by bike, instead of by car, has powerful positive repercussions. These people make sustainability looking really fun! Motherload asks why this is so and what it can teach us about mainstream culture.

Through her research Liz learns how the bicycle transformed society faster and more effectively than any other invention, facilitating women’s fight for the vote and giving the poor mobility for the first time in history. In 1896 Maria Ward wrote in Bicycling for Ladies:
“Riding the wheel, our own powers are revealed to us, a new sense is seemingly created… You have conquered a new world, and exultingly, you take possession of it.”
This all makes sense when Liz finds that humans are genetically hardwired to crave outdoor sensory experiences like riding a bicycle.

We feel this most urgently today, as our hunter-gatherer instincts are drowned out by the clamor of the digital age, and Americans spend 95% of our time indoors.

I've decided to RENT a bike before buying one -- just to make sure I still know how to ride/drive a bike. But I have to wait until the air is breathable. Life in California right now is like this: My friend and I are waiting for a day when air will be breathable, so we can go for a masked, socially distanced walk in the cemetery.

Erste Radrunde mit Pulsgurt


#radfahren #cycling #gravelbike #garmin #oregon #ant+ #qmapshack #alleedeswandels

Heute habe ich meine erste Radrunde mit dem Pulsgurt gemacht. Dieser ist mit dem Garmin Oregon via ANT+ gekoppelt und der Oregon zeichnet die Pulsrate schön im GPX mit auf. QMapShack kann das dann entsprechend visualisieren, z.B. durch entsprechende Einfärbung des Tracks. Heute wollte ich mal im Fettverbrennungsbereich bleiben, was so ca. 108–126bpm bei mir sind. Gar nicht so einfach in diesem niedrigen Bereich zu bleiben, wenn man vorher immer nach Gefühl gefahren ist. Den Komfortbereich habe ich dann auch immer mal wieder verlassen, damit es nicht zu langweilig wurde. :slight_smile:
Strecke war die „Allee des Wandels“ die einmal komplett in beide Richtungen gefahren wurde:

Runde um die Haard


#radfahren #cycling #gravel #haard #wesel-datteln-kanal

Sonntag bei bestem Wetter mal wieder eine schöne Runde um die Haard gemacht.



Dabei lange Zeit am Wesel-Datteln-Kanal über „wasserbefestigte“ Wege gefahren. Leider gabs lange Zeit kein Wasser (Regen), daher viel Staub. Das Rad sah nach der Tour entsprechend aus. :frowning2:



Dank Lenkererweiterung hat nun auch die GoPro wieder Platz am Lenker gefunden, ein kleines Video:

The economics of the Tour de France


How does the world’s most prestigious cycling race make money? Who sponsors the teams? And how does financing impact the riders’ strategy?

Ein recht lesenswerter Artikel, der auch einige Fakten zu verstehen ermöglicht, die nicht angesprochen werden, etwa warum das Helmtragen gegen den heftigen Widerstand der Fahrer durchgesetzt wurde. Die Sicherheit und Gesundheit der Fahrer ist so ziemlich das Letzte, das den Veranstalter einerseits und die Sponsoren andererseits interessiert. Schade eigentlich, denn die Idee einer wie ein Touristikspektakel aufgemachten Frankreichrundfahrt ist nicht nur in der Version von Uderzo und Goszinny eigentlich eine feine Sache.

Ten common myths about bike lanes – and why they're wrong
Peter Walker

"[T]he most comprehensive study of the real-world impact of cycle lanes, undertaken in New York City, found businesses on streets with separated bike routes grew on average more quickly than those without."

Does news coverage of traffic crashes affect perceived blame and preferred solutions? Evidence from an experiment

* Even subtle differences in editorial patterns significantly affected readers’ attribution of blame and choice of punishment
* Shifting from pedestrian-focused to driver-focused language reduced victim-blaming and increased perceived fault of the driver
* A thematic frame significantly increased support for infrastructure improvements

That bicycle helmets are not currently tested against such impacts will be a revelation to many cyclists and motorists, many of whom erroneously assume that bicycle helmets offer greater protection than they are actually designed to provide.
The helmet is a lie. It always has been.

Results show the majority of news reports were episodic rather than thematic, focusing on the traffic event and the parties involved in the crash, particularly the bicyclist. Vocabulary, grammatical structure, and narrative framing of news reports largely functioned to remove blame from the motorist and to highlight the bicyclist’s actions. These linguistic strategies reflect the assumption that responsibility for safety rests on the bicyclist and detracts attention from potential social policy reform that would lead to fewer bicyclist fatalities.
