Coach Alex's Weekly Update - May 28th

Sorry for being a bit late with this update, the Memorial Day weekend threw me off course. I did get in 55 miles of riding on Saturday which was great, the knee is holding up well. Also had a great ride on Tuesday as Michael commented on - nice 26 miles with some great hills for practice. As a reminder, it is important that you make sure to ride during the week, even if it is only 10-15 miles. You can't survive on only the weekend rides.

Reminder for Vermont Riders: There is a fundraising deadline on Sunday, so make sure you are working on that part of the ride as well. Be sure to utilize the website, it makes donations very easy.

Our next ride will be this Saturday starting at 8:30am. We will meet at the corner of 56th St. and Reed Rd., just across from the entrance to Eagle Creek. We will be riding 40 miles, with 2 stops. Make sure you bring plenty of water, some snacks and/or money to buy snacks. I look forward to seeing you all there.

The following weekend - June 6th & 7th there is a choice of two rides:
  • Saturday - B&O ride in Brownsburg (I think I'll be doing that one)
  • Sunday - June Bug Jamboree in Shelbyville (same folks that do the Morse Lake Metric).

Be sure to take advantage of these rides to get in the 45 miles.

Pedal on!

  1. I plan to be there on Saturday morning. Looking forward to the ride!

    I will not be able to ride next weekend due to a family camping trip.
