I'm going to give the "Holy Smokes" Award to Cheryl S. this week. She left the building a few hours ago and it's still steaming! Cheryl is on top in the Women's Overall AND the 40+ category. In the process she set a new Shop record going 16:38! Well done! In the Women's 50+ category Vicki B. has a firm hold on the top spot with her personal best from last week.
|Cheryl happy to have her breath back|
A shout out to 16yr old Matt C. who got his hair cut and knocked another 30 seconds off his TT to be 8th in the Men's Overall. His younger brother Nathan is on his heels. After only about 5 classes he almost cracked 17 minutes.

It has been asked many times the last few weeks about what to do when classes end. The answer: Ride Your Bike! Get an event on the calendar. Find a regular group ride with friends, head out on the C & O Canal, do a triathlon, road or mountain bike race, go ride your bike. We live in one of the most beautiful areas to ride. After all the hard work this winter you will be able to reap the benefits of better fitness. Ride! Ride! Ride!
The Speed Shop will still be here for you. Random inclement weather classes will be held through the spring. Make sure you join the google group for upcoming events. Send an email to KAspeedshop@googlegroups.com to be in the loop.
