    Over the Top Cycling - The Boothby Challenge

    in Fitness

    A group of Seattle Randonneurs decided to create an unofficial challenge to honor the memory of one of their own, Don Boothby, who passed away before he got a chance to complete a 300k ride every month of the year, Hence the Boothby Challenge was created.
    4 riders completed it in 2014


    Randonneuring is long-distance unsupported endurance cycling. This style of riding is non-competitive in nature, and self-sufficiency is paramount. Participation in randonneuring events is part of a long tradition that goes back to the beginning of the sport of cycling in France and Italy. Friendly camaraderie and perseverance are the hallmarks of randonneuring.

    Over the Top Cycling - Robin Farina interviews Ally Stacher

    in Fitness

    Ally Stacher is a professional cyclist with Specialized-Lululemon. She's a support rider who does everything she possibly can do to help her team succeed.  Stacher


    inherited a love of homemade juicing from her aunt, who bought her a Jack LaLanne juicer during her sophomore year of college. “I was instantly hooked,” she says. “My roommate and I started juicing like crazy.”


    It’s a habit that Stacher continues today—even while on the road. “I was traveling with a little Omega juicer,” she says. “It was perfect—it fit into my backpack so I never had to put it in my checked bag. Then the travel got to it and it died on me. It was an incredibly sad day. I now travel with a Breville juicer my teammate bought me for my birthday. It’s pretty easy to lug around. I will say, though, when you go through security with a juicer in your backpack it tends to set off the alarm.”


    Stacher claims to be a frugal juicer—“I don’t do too many add-ins…the occasional wheat grass, but that’s about it.”—but admits to being crazy for beets. And for good reason: Research show that drinking beetroot juice can boost a cyclist’s endurance. In one study, volunteers were able to ride about a minute and a half longer compared to when they drank a placebo. Ninety-two seconds may not seem like a lot, but in the world of professional cycling, it’s more than enough to separate the winners from the losers.

    Interop Radio: End Users Look at Network Performance

    in Technology

    It's easy to take a deep dive into the tech end of the network performance pool, but what does it all really mean for the end users? Ping times, collisions, congestion, jitter, latency: Do any of them make a difference when someone is waiting for their accounting application to respond?


    Our guests on today's episode know what matters in network performance -- and why. Panagiotis Vouzis and Panickos Neophytou of NetBeez have developed tools that monitor network performance from the end-user perspective and give network admins insight on which aspects of the network matter to the people behind the keyboards. NetBeez is part of this year's InteropNet. We'll talk with Panagiotis and Panickos about which components of network performance matter the most and why an end-user perspective can be a critical tool in network management.


    Join us for a great episode on network performance: Your network users will thank you for investing the time!


    Interop 2015 will take place from April 27th through May 1st at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV. More information and registration details are available online!

    CUTV News Radio spotlights business performance architect Joanne Eckton

    in Business

    Lebanon, TN – There’s a terrible statistic that states that 95 percent of people go home from work unhappy, unsatisfied and unfulfilled. We all know someone who can’t wait to quit their job and do something fun. They want to start their own business or retire. They’re always looking forward to the day they can leave. You’re not going to get productivity out of that person in that position.


    If you’re a business that’s looking to achieve better results, the best place to start is with your people. Far more than traditional incentives like bonuses and raises, what people really want out of their job is a vision they can believe in. They want to be part of something bigger than themselves and do something worthwhile. So how can we help our employees align with a vision they can believe in?


    Joanne Eckton is a business performance architect specializing in helping organizations to improve team performance, retain top talent and virtually eliminate morale problems. Joanne is a widely recognized expert in aligning teams to perform with purpose. She brings the knowledge and skills that help business owners implement simple but time-tested strategies to get results faster and more efficiently.


    “I help business leaders change their work environment so people are actually happy to be a part of a team instead of looking for that escape route,” says Joanne. “I help design a workplace where people are happy to be in their jobs. By helping business understand the simple changes they can make to improve team performance, my clients will not only improve their business results but also impact the lives of many.”

    Over the Top Cycling - Lon Haldeman discusses the Ghana and Elite PAC Tours

    in Fitness

    Ultracycling legend Lon Haldeman joins us to talk about his recent PAC Tour in Ghana as well as the upcoming Elite PAC Tour.  


    The fastest transcontinental bike tour ever! PAC Tour's first Elite Tour was in 1995 and has been going strong ever since!


    Daily miles range from 140 to 196 miles per day. Riders completing 100% of the tour will qualify for the Race Across AMerica.This extremem cross country bike tour intended for the most serious riders who are looking for a very challenging ride across America.    All riders must routinely ride 200 miles in 10-12 hours in training. An Elite Team Division is being offered for two riders to share participating by individually riding 80-120 miles each day.


    This Elite Tour begins in San Diego, California with moderate daily distances the first three days while crossing the desert.  We hope all riders will be able to gradually work themselves into shape before they begin the longer days for the remainder of the tour.  The route will use a combination of good cycling roads we have ridden for many years.


    This is not an easy cross-country route following the boring flat lands of the Southern states.  We will intentionally climb many steep mountain grades in Arizona and New Mexico.  In the eastern states we will ride many hilly days including the notorious Talimena Parkway which includes many 15% grades.


    This cross country bicycle tour is only for the best riders. Do not come on this tour if you are looking for an easy ride across the country. Even the fastest riders will be tested to their limits on most days.
