Stretching the Legs of my Elite T-Class Time Trial Bike

How to win a free pair of Sock Guy cycling socks

Today was my first ride of 2012 on Zonker, my time trial bike. I posted this morning on my Strava.com profile [http://strava.com/athletes/robertwhess] that I’ll send a free pair of Sock Guy cycling socks to the first person who can tell me why I named this bike “Zonker.” Just post your answer here or on my ride profile at Strava.com.

Why I bicycle

I’ve always enjoyed cycling, but I refocused my energy to it following my diagnosis and treatment for prostate cancer in 2012. My intuition told me that nutrition and exercise would help me keep the cancer from returning.

There still is no definitive, double-blind study proving the correlation, but evidence is mounting. I’m working my way through The Definitive Guide to Prostate Cancer by Dr. Aron E. Katz, and he makes clear the benefits of good nutrition and daily exercise. Bicycling is great aerobic exercise and it’s easy on the knees. You still need weight bearing exercise, but cycling is a great deal of fun.

How I plan to win the power-to-weight battle

I’m looking forward to this year’s California SoCal master’s track championships at the LA Velodrome.  I’m working on getting stronger, but also losing unneeded weight.

I can’t believe it, but at 5′ 10″ and 148 pounds, I still have 6 pounds of excess fat!  I weighed 142 pounds when I graduated from college.

What’s the chances I can get down to 142 pounds by June?  And that my wife will be seen in public with me!
