The popularity of road cycling in the United States has grown dramatically in recent history and as a result research in the area of cycling performance has also increased. “The Science of Cycling: Bike Fit, Training Principles, and Nutrition” will examine the current cycling research concentrating on practical application of the research findings. Presenter Dr. Will Peveler will also discuss the importance of bike fit for optimal performance and injury prevention, basic training principles, and nutrition for performance.

Six@Six Lecture Series
Six@Six is a community lectures series sponsored by Northern Kentucky University’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement. Think of this as your chance to go to college, minus the tuition, the morning classes and the pressure of grades.
The season will start with an evaluation of the Constitution and the Emancipation Proclamation and end with a look into the dark side of the life of Machiavelli. In between, you’ll learn about the evolution of wire service photography, the effects of consuming energy cocktails, wobbly atoms, and the truth behind police drama forensic science.
Six@Six is hosted by three of our region’s finest arts and cultural institutions: The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, Behringer-Crawford Museum and The Mercantile Library. This year for the first time a lecture will be held in Northern Kentucky University’s new state-of-the-art Digitorium in Griffin Hall. The lectures begin this fall and stretch into next spring. The six lectures each start at 6 p.m. and cost $6 (buy a season pass for $30; students are free.)
