Everyone ITT has checked his Twitter by now right and the "clarification" he made, right? He basically said he supports CAHSR 100% and his plan (CV first, then valley to valley) is what CHSRA's plan always was. Everything will continue according to schedule, coming up soon are the EIRs for Pacheco which will hit at about the same time the SJJPA considers putting existing San Joaquins onto CAHSR tracks. Newsom will then have to conjure up funding for Pacheco tunnels in his next budget, with construction starting in about 2021 and lasting thru 2026. Tehachapi's EIR is expected to be done in 2021 for a build from 2022-2027 which sets up CAHSR for it's final build down into Los Angeles Union Station.

Everything is coming together nicely, except for the three mile stretch between 4th&King and the new TTC which SF still hasn't figured out and is unlikely to for another decade.

Analyses implemented in the past few years of open rail-trails and out-of-service rail corridors show the potential to build a rail-trail that spans from Washington to Washington. Hundreds of conversations with state agencies and local trail managers confirm that this is a realistic pursuit.

...Now, the route is more than 50 percent complete

Why is it bad?

>>1286827
Mostly because in 2 pilot IFR, you have a pilot flying (someone in control of the aircraft) and a pilot monitoring (making sure there are no issues with the aircraft systems, navigation, communication, etc).

>>1285287

Currently work with Flybe. People don't mind the prop planes too much, as sometimes they'll put on an E75 instead. Load factor has been fucking awful last few months anyways. It's the prices, coupled with competition from the low cost carriers that's fucked them. Being bought over by Virgin and Stobart Air will definitely help them though
>>
Yes, but some twins can be a handful for an inexperienced pilot at the loss of an engine.

Many competent pilots land twins uneventfully every year after an engine failure, but those incidents are never reported because they are not tracked by the FAA, NTSB or anybody else, so the stats are hard to really get accurately on the actual difference.

>As long as your cadence is between like 60-120 RPM you should be good.
Uh, no.
The lower you cadence is, the more torque is required per crank revolution to maintain the same power, therefore muscular endurance plays a larger part than aerobic endurance does. This is made obvious by the fact that at a set power output, at lower cadences your heart rate will be lower than at higher cadences. At lower cadences you're fatiguing your muscles faster.
You should aim for a cadence of 90-100rpm under most circumstances, including on climbs, saving your muscular endurance for the steeper climbs where you can't maintain a cadence that high.

If you can't comfortably maintain 90-100rpm on the flat and at a steady road speed, then your pedaling efficiency is low for some reason. That's a limiter that needs to be addressed, you're wasting power with opposing muscles working against each other. Single-leg pedaling drills and endurance pedaling (as described here: >>1287586) will fix that over time.
>>
>>1287384
>>1287387
If you really want to build leg strength you need to spend some time in the gym during the off-season.
At the same time you're building basic leg strength you can also build core strength and shoulder strength, so you don't waste leg power with your core, shoulders, and arms flexing during hard efforts.

Also, basic strength is just one part of a three-part equation. The other two are 'aerobic endurance' and 'muscular endurance'.
If you ride all the time, and, say, 50-100 miles in a day isn't out of reach for you, then you probably don't have too many concerns in the 'aerobic endurance' department.
'Muscular endurance' is something else entirely, though, it's the ability to sustain hard (not 'anaerobic', though) efforts for long periods of time.
How you accomplish Muscular Endurance training is through intervals in your Anaerobic Threshold range, and a cadence in the range of 70 to 80rpm. What this does is force more muscle fibers to fire per pedal stroke because you need to produce more torque at that cadence. Over the weeks you do these sorts of intervals your muscle fibers will grow more mitochondria and form more capillaries and blood vessels, producing more fuel for contractions, meaning they can work longer before fatiguing.
What this translates to is: "Turning over a big gear fast, longer".

>Pros go on crazy diets to get in race weight to the point of starving themselves.
They don't starve themselves. You'll sabotage yourself if you do that.

What I've found is effective for me, is to limit carbohydrates to no more than 40% of total calories every day, and on basic endurance rides of up to a couple hours, take nothing but water with me, and on basic endurance rides of 2 hours or more, take only 100kcal per bottle with me. Of course you also need to overall eat at a mild cut (300 to 500kcal deficit), ensuring you're getting enough protein as well. Of course you shouldn't be going out doing hard interval training doing that (like Threshold work or Sprint work), but usually you're focusing on losing excess bodyfat during the off-season anyway, when most all of your rides are basic endurance-level anyway; if you race you should not be trying to lose weight during race season.

Since the news came out yesterday that DB is buying new Talgo rolling stock for IC/EC services to replace their old conventional rail cars, I was curious to hear what anons think about this concept.
