On Our Way - Fall 2012

What an incredible spring and summer of outdoor riding this year! The 10 week winter torture session was a  huge success. There are so many amazing stories and accomplishments.  Instead of listing them all here, we are hosting an Open House/Happy Hour on 9/29/2012  from 5pm - 8pm along with Frederick Velo, the group that is responsible for the outdoor Tuesday Night Worlds training rides.  This is a chance to get together off the bike for a few snacks and beverages and share some stories. This is also a chance for anyone who has never taken a class, to take a peek at the Speed Shop before the Fall "fun" begins.  
Please pass this on to anyone you think would be interested.
 RSVP to by 9/24/2012 at 9pm -please!   

**ANNOUNCING The 8 week "Efficiency and Technique" Fall Training Program for 2012

We are extending the 2012 Fall season to 8 weeks this year and also including the Functional Threshold Power class in the first week.  Here are the details:

When: 10/22/2012 - 12/22/2012* 
           check out the class schedule on the website
What: The fall is the perfect time to start establishing good riding habits and to make improvements on current ones. Working on a fluid pedal stroke and proper form while getting a great workout will lay the foundation for the 2013 "Winter Build" Training Program.  
The first week of the program is a Functional Threshold Power (FTP) class to establish power and heart rates zones in order to train specifically to your data. Establishing training parameters is important to get the most of this program. Weeks 2- 8 will build on each other in order to prepare for the "Winter Build" Training Program in 2013. 

Cost: 1 class per week $172.50 or 2 classes per week for $300
