On the Road!!

A BIG Thank You to everyone that signed up for the Fall and Winter CompuTrainer classes!    Despite Mother Nature torturing us with frigid temperatures, snow, and  icy roads the Fall and Winter season went great!   The focus at  "Kelley Acres" Speed Shop is to give all riders a similar experience in a fun environment regardless of your fitness level.  It seems this season we accomplished just that and more.   We were even able to help take the edge off by adding some long endurance Sunday rides going all over Europe with fun ErgVideos.

As Season 6 ends and the spring outdoor riding season begins there are many options to take your Speed Shop skills on the road. Below are just a few of the links that may be of interest. Please feel free to continue to use the Speed Shop Google Group and Facebook page during the spring and summer to share any information that may be relevant to the group. 

We also love to hear your success stories. There are lots of rides, races, vacations and personal goals in the works. Let us know how you are doing!
