We will get a post up about our time in Durango soon, promise!
In the meantime, there are some happenings this week that we want to let you all know about. All are welcome. Nothing is mandatory. These are non-riding or non-training things, as you all know Team El Grupo has the next three weeks off.
Mechanics Classes: Structured lessons on different elements of bike mechanics – great for all levels of learning and understanding. We have some of our own bikes to get in order, so this will give us a chance to learn and get some work done! 2pm Tuesday and Thursday at clubhouse
Try Outs: We have our summer round of try outs happening this week!! Anyone who wants to come help out and help the newcomers feel welcomed is encouraged to do so. 7am Tuesday (intro, trainers, skills) & 7am Wednesday (skills) and 6:30am Friday (short ride) – all meeting at clubhouse
Outreach activities: Want to help teach bike safety at some summer camps? Thursday morning 7am and Friday 9am help is welcome for bike rodeos. Contact Ignacio directly if you want to help.
Enjoy your time off, but remember to keep your body from sitting on a couch all day, too!
Good luck to all of the newbies trying out for the team! I’m very busy with work and family commitments this week and next. Hope to help out more with EG after the 7th of July…looking for some to join me on occasional mtb rides too.
