Coach's Weekly Update - July 6, 2009

WOW! I can't believe it is already July. Less than 2 months until the Vermont ride and just over 2 months before Whitefish - you Death Valley riders have a bit more time. I hope folks were able to get out over the weekend and ride a bit, if so tell us about it by posting something on the blog.

Unfortunately I did not ride which will make this weekend's 75 mile ride that much more important. We will be leaving from downtown. The meeting place will be the parking lot of the Park Street Church which is on the north side of 10th St. between College Ave & East St./Central. We will be heading out at 8am, so please be there by 7:45am. Make sure you bring 2 full water bottles as well as snacks or money to buy snacks. This ride will take us about 5 - 6 hours. If anyone needs to do a shorter ride than that, let me know and I'll try to work something out. We will also have a training ride on Wednesday at 79th & Oaklandon road at 6pm.

You should have all received the Training Times from the National office, be sure to take a look at it, there is some good information about riding with a group. If you deleted your message you can find a copy at the Training Times link on the left side of our blog.

We are getting into the tough part of the training, where we will be doing some very long rides. These rides are very important if you want to complete the 100 miles (if your goal is less than 100 miles use the training mileage as a percent and take that percentage of your goal as the amount you should ride this weekend).

As always, please let me know if you have any questions.

Down the road!

  1. Just back from 2 weeks in the desert southwest. Had a great time but didn't do much riding... about 6 miles on a mountain bike while pulling my youngest son on a tag-along bike (tough ride) and 30 road miles on Friday.

    I am registered for the RAIN ride next weekend so am looking forward to catching up with everyone and getting some miles in this week.
