As mentioned before, the structural components of the body are made out of proteins. There are certain cells or tissues in the body that make proteins very rapidly, and there are others that do so more slowly. Skeletal muscle is actually on the slower side of the spectrum. However, since skeletal muscle is such a large tissue (roughly 40% of body weight), it is quantitatively the most important site of protein turnover (making and breaking down of protein). In the sport of cycling, skeletal muscle is what propels the bike. Thus, having a good understanding of how to maintain skeletal muscle proteins, and keep them in a good state, is important for cycling performance. In this column, I will talk a little bit about what builds up and breaks down protein and some strategies to potentially help that.

It has been a SUPER busy month at Peloton Cycles. At the end of March we sold the Loveland location, after 21 years of operating there. That was the store where Robin Torres started it all, and it generated an awesome reputation among cyclists from all over Northern Colorado. It was sad to lock the doors for the last time, but VERY exciting to be working on the NEW store acquisition, almost simultaneously!
The Harmony Road store was already the largest bike shop in Fort Collins, and we have leveraged that with a second location right here in the Fort.
After ten years with Fort Collins custom ti bike builder, Black Sheep, Todd Heath is moving on.
The Next Chapter –
As many have heard I am leaving the Black Sheep family to start my own. This has given me some time to reflect. Here is a bit of my story.
I was a senior in high school in 2003. I had a teacher, Dustin Dike who had briefly worked at Moots and could see I was enthusiastic about bikes, especially the process of design and construction. At the time he knew I was looking for a job and I was ready to learn some real skillz. As fate may have it Dustin was introduced to James Bleakley in the line at the grocery store. Dustin asked if James needed an apprentice and James graciously accepted me into his workshop.
