THE COYOTE SHUFFLE

TODD BROWN


OUR WEEKLY SOCIAL RIDE IS PERFECT FOR PRACTICING THE COYOTE SHUFFLE, named after Mr. Wyle E. Coyote.

New riders have the opposite of this move mastered so well, it's a miracle they ever come back.

Old wily vets practice the shuffle so stealthily it's hard to even notice.

And in between those two are the cats who get stronger.

The Coyote Shuffle is demonstrated best on our 4-5 minute climb dubbed The Wall.  It's a real screamer.  Starts out easy, gets steeper, then pitches straight up to a pinnacle before plunging down the other side.

Timid/Lazy/New rider thinks...
I'll start in the back so I'm not in anybody's way,
tries to hang on but as riders are slipping off the back gets discouraged and eases up before the top of the climb.

Wily vet thinks...
Perfect place to practice the Coyote Shuffle
goes to the front forcing riders to come around barely making it over as the last straggler.

Cat who gets stronger thinks...
It ain't over, 'til I'm over
bares down hard on the pedals pushing all the way over and down the other side, perfect position for what comes next.

As I write this, I realize I'm a little of each depending on the season.

Sometimes I'm just plain lazy.

Other times I'm feeling wily and want to do the least amount of work and still stay in the game.

Then there are the times when it counts, when I'm putting in the efforts to be in toptopshape and I'm yelling to myself...

IT AIN'T OVER, 'TIL I'M OVER!

When I'm strong, I can always execute the Coyote Shuffle in a race to conserve energy.

It's a stealthy move, like the Stealth RaceDay bag:

And steatlhy moves like the Coyote Shuffle have been known to win a race or two.
