Competitive Cyclists Needed for Uni of Bath Research Study

Are you a competitive cyclists, triathlete, runner or swimmer? Interested in knowing more about how your body works? Max Simms, a student at the University of Bath, is conducting two studies for which he is looking for participants. See below for more details:

 

Study 1

Are you a competitive male cyclist or triathlete aged 18-40 years interested in knowing your VO2max (a key determinant of your endurance capacity)? We are conducting a research study at the University of Bath investigating the effects of simulated organizational stressors (a type of psychological demand) on cycling performance. As part of this project, you will be required to complete one VO2max test and three 8km cycling time-trials. Upon completion of the study, you will receive your VO2max test results as well as the performance data (e.g., average power, completion times) attained during the three cycling time-trials. For more information, please see the link below or contact Max Simms directly via email (M.Simms@bath.ac.uk) or telephone (01225 38 6399).

Study 2

Are you a competitive cyclists, runner, or swimmer competing at a regional, national, or international level? In collaboration with the English Institute of Sport, we are conducting a research study at the University of Bath to explore athletes’ experiences leading up to upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) symptoms and how these symptoms may impact performance. To be eligible, participants must have experienced symptoms of an URTI (e.g., sore throat, sneezing, runny/blocked nose) on two or more consecutive days in the past month. However, if you are interested in taking part but have not experienced such symptoms, please still get in touch as you may experience these symptoms at a later date. If eligible, you will be invited for a one-off interview lasting approximately one hour at a date, time, and place convenient for you. An interview via Skype can also be arranged if you are unable to attend in person. By participating in this study, you will get an opportunity to reflect on your sporting (and non-sporting) experiences and will be provided access to the final output of the study. For more information, please see the link below or contact Max Simms directly via email (M.Simms@bath.ac.uk) or telephone (01225 38 6399).

A HUGE muchas gracias to all the staff at the fantastic Port Blue Club Pollentia Hotel and Spa for staying open and keeping us fed and watered extremely well in these mad times whilst we’re waiting to get off the island. All the ACC clients have now found flights home, and many have already made it back. We’d be completely stuck without Club Pollentia - many, many thanks. #portblue #clubpollentia #andycookcycling #teamacc #thankyou #mallorcacyclingThe inaugural Dan Opuku Award for Generosity of Spirit on the Andy Cook Cycling Spring Camp was awarded to James Taylor on Saturday night. Dan Opuku was a wonderful friend of Andy Cook Cycling over the years, who sadly passed away a year ago. James Taylor showed generosity, kindness, and all round ‘good egg’ vibes throughout his time on the Spring Camp 2020 and he truly deserves this reward! #generosityofspirit #teamplayer #welldeserved #andycookcyclingWe’re loving ‘lockdown’ on the island! Thanks to Club Pollentia and Port Blue for looking after us so well. Some people have managed to get on flights home, and the rest of us are waiting for the ‘rescue flights’ from our airlines. Sadly no riding allowed but the bar is open and the food is plentiful ☀️ 😎 🍻 🍸 #andycookcycling #teamacc #mallorca #notcycling #properholiday #relaxThe final day of week one was warm and sunny and everyone made it up to Randa Monastery for coffee, cake and panoramic views of the island #andycookcycling #teamacc #mallorcacycling #immuneboosting #sunshinecycling #escape #clubpollentia #high5 #portblue #alecustom #randa #iconicclimbAnother great day out on the bikes yesterday! The group got through 55litres of water thanks to the hot weather and epic climbs. We’re heading up Randa today and then looking forward to welcoming lots of new clients tomorrow for Week 2 of our Spring Camp. #andycookcycling #mallorcacycling #puigmajor #iconicclimbs #coffeeandcake #cyclingcafe #smilesallround #everyonewelcomeAndy Cook Cycling’s sports nutrition partner HIGH5 supports our Spring Camp with loads of great products, and we couldn’t do it without them! HIGH5 have got a Buy One Get One Free offer on energy products at the moment - so why not make the most of this awesome deal and stock up for the coming season? #high5 #sportsnutrition #trainingpartner #fuelyourride #energyfood #energyproducts #andycookcycling 📸 @markwareham13We had a friend join us for coffee and cake at the Cap Formentor lighthouse yesterday (it wasn’t THAT goat though)! Day 4 was so hot and sunny - there were some interesting tan lines last night! The highlight of the day was the excellent quiz, hosted by our quiz masters Bob and Molly. Day 5 has got off to a good start - by the end of today, some riders will have tackled and conquered the epic Puig Major climb 🚵🏽‍♀️ #andycookcycling #mallorcacycling #capformentor #uninvitedguest #sunshinecycling #puigmajor #cyclingclimbs #iconicclimbs #trainingcamp #cyclingholiday #high5 #alecustomukWe took a pre-ride photo as it’s such a lovely day! Day 4 is our ‘rest day’ - but they’ll still be rides heading to the gorgeous beach at Cala Sant Vincenc, the Campanet Caves and the famous Cap Formentor lighthouse. #andycookcycling #mallorcacycling #hotdayonthebike #sunshinecycling #cyclingholiday #trainingcamp #clubpollentia #portblue #capformentor #campanetcaves #calasantvincenç #restdayA long day for some, but a great day for all on Day 3 of our Spring Camp! The sun shone, the climbs were challenging, and the cake (and ice cream) was delicious. The mileage today varied between 59 and 105 miles - well done everyone on an awesome day! #andycookcycling #teamacc #longdayinthesaddle #cakeandcoffee #sunshinecycling #gooddayonthebike #mallorcacycling #soller #valldemossa #iconicclimbs #alecustomuk #high5sports #clubpollentia
