Coaching Addition and Intro Classes!

We are losing daylight fast and it's almost officially Fall!  The good news is we got a pulse at the Speed Shop!  Programming for the upcoming Season 8 is underway.  We have a few exciting additions and changes coming your way.  The 8 week Fall Session will begin on 10/19. Details will be posted soon to  "Kelley Acres" Speed Shop.


It is my pleasure to announce the addition of Coach Lucas McCollum back to the Speed Shop this Fall and Winter! He will be taking over the Tuesday Early Bird class. Lucas and Coach Vicki taught a popular Sunday morning class the first year we started.  Lucas is one of the most accomplished triathletes in our region. He has turned his focus to road cycling and is quickly climbing the ranks moving from a USA Cycling Category 4 to a Category 2 and closing in on the top ranking of Category 1 in just one year racing for Team Bike Doctor. We are excited to have Lucas back!

Coach Ray will also be back for Season 8.  He provides a tremendous amount of support on and off the bike that helps the Speed Shop to continue to provide quality workouts in a fun environment. Coach Ray is coming off another strong road race season representing  National Capital Velo Club.

As many of you know Coach Vicki has moved to Texas.  She has been with the Speed Shop from the first season.  Her coaching and support will be greatly missed this season and we wish her well.


This year we are offering Two Introductory Classes.  The class will be lead by Coach Lucas and provide an opportunity to see what the Speed Shop is all about.  We will go over everything from set up to outlining what goes on in the Fall and Winter Sessions along with the random Long Endurance Classes.  We will also review the theory behind the progression of the training. Coach Lucas will lead an abbreviated workout so you have an idea of what to expect when you come to class. The first class will be held on September 16th at 6:30pm.  The cost is $20. Email to reserve your spot. Please call 301.788.4631 if you have any questions. The second class will be held in early October and will be announced in a few weeks.

Enjoy these last few weeks of summer!
