Coach's Weekly Update - May 5, 2009

Announcing Team Indiana's Bike Shop Partners

Starting this year we are partnering with two bike shops in the Indianapolis area. We hope this partnership will be beneficial to both groups. The shops are:
  • Indy Cycle Specialist (ICS) 5804 E. Washington St. (Scott Irons)

  • Nebroridge Bicycles 4335 W. 106th St. (Tim Casady)

We will be starting some of our rides from each location during the year and will also schedule some maintenance clinics. I've posted links to each of their websites in the links section of the blog. If you are in need of any bike "stuff" stop by, they are both great shops. Be sure to introduce yourself to Scott or Tim while you are there.

This week we are starting our weekday rides. This week it is Wednesday at 6pm and Bob Karnak is leading the ride from Oaklandon & 79th St. This ride will be 15 to 20 miles. Next week the ride will be Tuesday, May 12th location to be determined. I'd also like to point out that Neboridge has rides on Tuesday & Thursday evenings (Tuesdays sound more suitable for racers, but Thursday they divide into groups and there will be a group that will fit any of our riders). Remember - it is important to ride 2-3 times during the week as well as on the weekends.

This weekend's ride will be Saturday at 9am. I'm still working on a starting location, will send out an email and post it on the blog.

Thanks to Michael for the team photo from the last team ride.

Safe pedaling!

Coach Alex

  1. Saturday's ride had a killer 25+ mph wind, but we had 5 riders (2 Kevins, Dawn, Michael and Gary) who completed about 30 miles and had a good time.
