Wasson Way


A shared bike and pedestrian path that gives individuals and families a place to get out and engage with their community actively, all the while protecting a resource for future transit.

The Wasson Way is a proposed path that will go 6.5 miles from Xavier University to the Little Miami Bike Trail in Newtown. It would give 120,000 people, living within one mile of the trail, access to a network of over 100 miles of bike and pedestrian trails, most of which already exist. With a short connector to Armleder Park near Lunken Airport, the network of trails will soon go from Coney Island to downtown, from Lunken Airport to Milford and beyond, eventually connecting to northern Ohio.

Over the last 20 years we’ve seen cities transition abandoned spaces such as these into remarkable greenways that enliven communities, increase commerce, and attract residents. In cities like Minneapolis, Indianapolis and Washington DC, which have urban trails, they are consistently mentioned as one of the best features of those cities.

Sagan, the new Mario Cipollini

Sagan is boss!

Slovakia’s Peter Sagan crossed the finish line on one wheel as he won Sunday’s Gent-Wevelgem one-day classic.

Sagan, who finished 23 seconds ahead of Slovenia’s Borut Bozic, celebrated his victory by pulling a wheelie as he crossed the line.

Mark Cavendish was the best-placed Briton, crossing the line in a group 40 seconds adrift, in a race shortened by 50km because of the cold weather.

Great article about hydration!

hydrationSNI:  From the standpoint of rehydration, is there an ideal percentage of carbohydrate that is needed when consuming fluids?  Is there a combination of carbohydrates that is ideal?
Stacy: In my experience working with athletes, they are so focused on calories that they don’t pay attention to the fact that what they are drinking contributes to FUELING, not HYDRATION.

Let me explain.

In science speak: During prolonged exercise, fluid and salt losses through sweating reduce plasma volume which leads to heart rate drift in association with hyperthermia and reductions in performance. Oral rehydration with water reduces the loss of plasma volume and lessens heart rate drift and hyperthermia. Moreover, the inclusion of sodium in the rehydration solution to levels that double those in sweat (i.e., around 90 mmol/l Na+) restores plasma volume when ingested during exercise, and expands plasma volume if ingested pre-exercise.
