We will ride the Headlands today. This the the second to last Wednesday ride before the Fort Ord race. B and C rides will be practicing race starts as well as water bottle exchanges.
Our Pre-Race meeting is this Tuesday, 2/23, 7pm in the Tam High Student Center. All riders and a parent are required to attend! We will cover Race Day information – including travel details, pre-ride schedules, and parent volunteer tasks.
Rule of the Day:
RULE 14. PARENTS’ HELMETS
Parents shall comply with the helmet rule at all races (Rule 4). Parents riding bicycles without helmets shall be given two warnings. After a third infraction, the parent’s student-athlete will be penalized 25 points at the race where the infraction occurred. Parents are also expected to wear helmets for the following reasons:
• To set an example for the student-athletes
• There are limited emergency services on site
• All spectators at a NICA event are on the NICA permit/insurance and contribute to the overall liability
• It is not always possible for race officials to differentiate between parents and coaches
• NICA is concerned about the safety of all our participants and spectators
Here is a link to the NICA Rulebook

Get out on your own with friends to train this week. Get out 3 times at a minimum. It’s critical you maintain the good fitness you’ve built since the new year. If you need input on training options, distances or intensity, contact me or look at the Training page of this blog.
Have a nice Winter Break and see you spinners tomorrow.
