Lifelong endurance sport participation on top of a healthy lifestyle is not associated with a more favorable coronary plaque composition.

1. The dose response between long-term endurance exercises such as running or cycling & coronary artery disease (CAD) is a subject of debate
1a. A recent study looked at the association between long-term endurance exercises and prevalence of coronary artery plaques.
2. Three groups of people were selected:
Group 1 had started exercising below age 30,
group 2 started after age 30, and
3rd group maintained healthy lifestyle with minimal exercises.

(0/n) Tomorrow, #Belgian #cycling season starts again with opening classic @OmloopHNB @Nieuwsblad_be Upon several requests, we provide thread on our research in cycling #aerodynamics including practical ramifications. Work by @KU_Leuven et al. in partnership with @Ansys
(1/n) Well-known: cyclist in slipstream of another cyclist can typically get aerodynamic drag reduction of 30-40%. Is much more behind motorcycle, car or train. Known since at least 1899. “#Drafting” in the #slipstream is therefore common practice.
#Science #Engineering #cycling
(2/n) This is because air as medium gives pressure field so 1st rider literally gets “push” by 2nd. We published this in 2013. First lot of criticism & disbelief, now many say “we know this all along”. Yeah right 😊. That’s how it always goes……

Young Man in whom a Healthy Habit caused erectile dysfunction
1. 30-year-old Rijo consulted me for 3-month history of problem with erection. He was evaluated by Urologist/Andrologist & no cause for the same was found. Therefore, he was referred to rule out neurological disease.
2. Rijo was well three months ago, when he noticed erectile dysfunction (ED). He also had numbness in penis and surrounding regions, which was worse in mornings and better in evenings. There was no back pain or leg pain.
#MedTwitter #erectile #dysfunction #ED
3. On enquiring about his fitness regime, he mentioned that he was passionate about #cycling and he cycled about 400 km per week (including 100+ km on Sundays). I could now guess the reason for his ED.

🧵The father of #MeanwhileInOulu, Mauri Myllylä, 87. The first traffic engineer in Oulu. There's just so much we all owe to him especially regarding cycling. Talked with him last week over dinner about some of the historical important planning decisions they made back in 60's 1/
City of Oulu started growing rapidly in the late 50's and 60's. We needed a traffic engineer. I'm so happy they chose Mauri, who understood the importance of #walking & #cycling even during our strongest era of automobilization. He faced a lot and I do mean A LOT of criticism 2/
over his decisions and plans. I can't even imagine how bad it must have been. But he managed to stand his ground. First ever separate bike paths were built in Oulu in the 1960's, and he pushed through a 1971 masterplan for main cycling network that was also built. 3/

📉 The Tories have tanked our economy and we are facing more massive cuts.

💡Scrapping 5 biggest road schemes would ‘nearly halve budget deficit'

🧵 A thread on why we need to scrap road building plans for the sake of our economy AND our environment 👇…
🌍 Building new roads is absolutely the wrong thing to do in a #ClimateEmergency

🚛 Roads increase traffic, noise, air pollution and carbon emissions

💰 The 5 largest road schemes in the pipeline as part of #RIS2 all have weak economic cases and will cost £16BILLION! @StopRIS2 An aerial photo of multiple...
1️⃣ £10 BILLION - Lower Thames Crossing

A tunnel connecting Kent and Essex under the Thames estuary. 14.3 miles of new road and widening of the A2 and M2 in Kent

This will bring a massive increase in emissions and loss of wildlife and surrounding natural areas

How much protein is needed after endurance exercise?

A thread 🧵👇

#protein #cycling #endurance Image
Protein ingestion after exercise stimulates muscle protein synthesis (the main process regulating muscle recovery, adaptation and growth). It has been well established that protein intake improves resistance training adaptations.

2/ Image
However, little is known about the impact of protein on muscle adaptations following endurance exercise.

Great to see this new research out in @IJSNEMJournal led by @timpodlogar

A 🧵 to give a bit more background...

#cycling #LaVuelta22 🍚🍌🚵
Athletes commonly train almost everyday (and sometimes multiple times a day), so carbohydrate stores are often being depleted and need replenishing.

A goal of a pre-competition breakfast is to keep carbohydrate stores (glycogen) topped up
This is particularly important as our carbohydrate stores are relatively limited (vs fat stores).…

Yet carbs are essential for maintaining prolonged, high-intensity (top-end) performance.

#Technology: "One way to reduce #transport emissions relatively quickly, and potentially globally, is to swap cars for #cycling, e-#biking and #walking – active travel, as it’s called."… #solutions
"Tackling the #climate and air #pollution #crises requires curbing all motorised #transport, particularly private cars, as quickly as possible. Focusing solely on #ElectricVehicles is slowing down the race to zero emissions."
"We also estimate that urban residents who switched from driving to cycling for just one trip per day reduced their carbon footprint by about half a tonne of CO₂ over the course of a year, and save the equivalent emissions of a one-way flight from London to New York."

People are not entitled to suddenly open doors without checking - Judge
#driving #MobilePhone #cycling #harming…
This happened near Memorial Park, Islandbridge, Dublin.

The van driver’s door suddenly opened in the path of the man travelling by bike.

The injured man said the driver had been on his phone while seated in the van as he heard him speaking on it just as the door opened.
He was catapulted across the road. The driver had come over to him and said: “I didn’t see you. Are you okay?”

1/ The @CityofStJohns tells me I am to engage in vehiclular cycling. Cool: I got an #ebike and I ride in traffic. Cool: I've had cars zoom passed me at lethal velocities because there is no real bike infrastructure. But... How do I trigger traffic lights?
2/ I've been patiently waiting on the vehicle magnetic sensor with nothing happening and cars behind me. Sorry #nltraffic cars but I literally cannot trigger the light.

Why don't people cycle? It's not the rain eh @kerriclaireneil. It's not the wind eh @BicycleNL. It's the cars
3/ The sooner we can convert wasted on street parking (aside from downtown) and convert those to at a MINIMUM painted enforced bike gutters the better.

Pedestrians and cyclists don't match easily. For a casual ride sure but not for commuting.

"Andar en #bici es saludable" repetimos muchas veces, pero ¿qué se sabe exactamente de los #efectos del #ciclismo en la #salud?

Disclaimer: entienda que esto puede provocarle cierto fanatismo por subirse a la bici.

¡Venga ese hilo 🧵! Image
Hacer los recomendados 60' de ejercicio por día es algo incalcanzable para muchas personas, entonces usar la bici para los desplazamientos cortos puede ser una forma práctica de incorporar actividad física a la vida diaria de personas fisicamente menos activas. Image
El gasto energético de usar la bici para todos los desplazamientos cotidianos se cataloga como "intensidad moderada" (Ainsworth et al. 2000)

Quiere decir que es el doble de intenso que caminar, además de ser una actividad continua y que puede ser realizada por infantes y adultos Image

#climateni #cycling #onyourbike
.@divedivajade the acting manager of @ClimateNI, said she has cycled more than 4,000km with two kids on the back of her e-tandem. “That’s 4,000km of fuel for a car I didn’t need to buy”.

1/ Just for fun: A list of amazing cycling climbs that include some sort of "special" tunnel experience. (I am a tunnel coward, but occasionally fight my fears and have pedaled through some crazy places)
#cycling #tunnels
2/ Formerly the highest road in France. The route du Parpaillon was built between 1891 and 1911 by the French military to link the Ubaye and Embrun valleys. The high point of the road is the TUNNEL – 520 metres long – at 2643 metres, one metre higher than Galibier.
3/ The amazing Vercors massif is filled with cliff roads and tunnels. The scariest os on the way to Col de Romeyère. A true spider hole. A kind motorcyclists offered to lead me through as I had no light and I hit the highest heart rate of my life from fear and trying to keep up

1/ Just for fun, I am going to list some of my favourite cycling climbs for hairpin lovers: first has to be the old cobble Tremola road up the south side of Gotthard Pass (Switzerland) #cycling #hairpins (3rd photo angle taken from inside the galleria tunnel of main road).
2/ The amazing 46 hairpins up to Col de Tende (French side, Italian name is Colle di tenda). Also, great unpaved military ridge roads above --- first photo taken from an old fort.
3/ OK, of course Passo dello Stelvio. Amazing: 48 signed hairpins. But don't forget, the less "famous" Bormio side (3rd and 4th photos) also has 40 signed hairpins. Oh, and they sell beer at the summit!

1/Just for fun: A list of favourite huge paved cycling climbs that are NOT well known. #1 Lago del Narèt - My favourite climb in Switzerland .... 32 kms up, quiet, stunning, many dams/lakes. 11th highest paved climb in Switzerland. #cycling Details: ImageImageImageImage
2/ Plan du Lac. 7th highest paved climb in France at 2385 metres. Near the south side of Col de l'Iseran. Very quiet, dead end. Details: ImageImageImageImage
3. Grosse Scheidegg is one of the most beautiful, climbs in the Alps. But I think it's reasonably well know, BUT beside it, under the Eiger North Face, is a deserted paved road to Männlichen. (I rode just beyond summit for 2 photos). Details: ImageImageImageImage

1. Today's The Planet newsletter has pictures of my village, where cyclists mostly have their own roads as you often see in the Netherlands.

Here they are warned to slow down at a crossing.

This is not to say all we need to do is electrify transport and build renewables, we should also be looking to radically reduce car ownership and miles driven, and to radically increase miles by 🚲 🛴 🚶‍♂️🚃 🚊 and 🚌.
Nails arriving tomorrow so time for a bit of cleaning before putting the floorboards down. Not much use in having the low-dust house (airtight and filtered fresh air through the MVHR) if there’s a load of dust right under the floorboards! #Passivhaus #EnerPHit ImageImage
Making some more holes so I can measure exact distance between studs so @Drew_Carr_ can finalise the downstairs window sizes.

What on earth is building paper anyway? Just waxy paper? Does anyone still use it? Image
