We are considering riding China Camp Sunday. It is the best match we have for the terrain at these early season races. However, if it rains hard on Saturday, we will probably have to switch back to Tam because we don’t want to trash the softer trails at CC. Watch here for updates.
It looks like the rain going to give us a break this afternoon. Unfortunately, neither Christy nor I can lead a ride today. I hope you all can get out on your own while it’s clear. If anyone wants to post a ride place/time here, feel free to do so.
We all need to get some riding in this week. If you haven’t gotten out for a ride, you may want to hit the spin class at the community center Thursday at 6:30. $11, ride in flat shoes or SPDs. Taught by Nati.
Update: “It’s now official. We are riding trainers at Tam Bikes @3:45. We have 12 – 13 trainers for certain. Sessions will be 50 mins, so if we fill up the trainers we will have time for a second session. See you there”
If the rain goes according to the forecast, it is going to be pretty wet this afternoon. We will stay flexible, but our backup plan is to meet at Tam Bikes at 3:45 for a spin session on our trainers. We have at least 10 trainers and I am scrounging around for more. If you have one at home and can bring it down, please do. Please comment here if you can bring a trainer. If we max out, we will run a second session about an hour later. Hope for a clearing… and BRING A TOWEL!
Also, please check the “Parent/Rider Info” tab just above this and see Nancy’s recent post about everyone’s race week checklist.
Hi Team, we are going to meet for the pre-ride at 3:30 Saturday at our spot in the Pit Zone (note that we have moved this back by half an hour). On the map of the Pit Zone, traffic enters from the left and continues in a counter clockwise direction. We are about 2/3rds of the way around on the outside. WEAR YOUR TAM JERSEY. See you there!
There will be a team ride Sunday, 9:00am, meeting at The Depot. Plan for a longer ride, then a recovery week before the race next weekend.
We will be having a meeting in Mr Hartquist’s room (152 wood hall) at lunch THURSDAY. We want to discuss race strategy. This will be most useful for our new riders, but I’m sure everyone can learn something. Experienced racers can also share their perspectives. Wednesday ride will be at 3:30 from Tam. I am sick and can’t make it. Have a great ride!
