Winter Riding Program- Week 1

Last year we started a program where a different team member would lead Saturday rides for a month. While the meeting spot remained the same, the routes were often wildly different with regard to who the organizer was. The ultimate goals included getting the team together, staying fit through the long winter months, and learning new routes. Continue reading “Winter Riding Program- Week 1”

Battle at Barlow 2015

Blind Date at the Dairy – Week 2

Blind Date at the Dairy – Week 1

I enjoy bike racing. Since I can’t be out there myself, I’ve enjoyed watching my teammates and friends riding in circles.
Last night Starla and Coach came away with wins and the rest of the team raced really well.
