I hope and trust everyone is enjoying getting back to school. Afternoon practices have been well attended and we continue to encourage increased attendance and most importantly consistency as we look forward to NICA which is fast approaching 6 weeks away!
We’ve been seeing issues in dealing with the heat of the afternoon so please ensure you show up well hydrated. I’m sure public water fountains at school may be capped off so plan ahead with personal water bottles throughout the day.
At the last coach’s meeting, coaches expressed frustration with the lack of preparation of some riders; specifically in regards to having spare tubes. So from now on, to exit the door to participate in a ride, we are asking that all riders present their spare tube before they are allowed to leave. Please be ready for this. You must show your spare tube, to leave the door.
Spare tubes can be bought at the clubhouse.
$3 for a road tube
$5 for a MTB tube.
Patching is FREE.
As stated above, we understand that school just started and many of you are still finding the rhythm of it all. We totally understand. That is why we are not going to do any intervals this week. We just want you all to be able to go on solid bike rides where you can just focus on being happy and out on the bike.
NICA is however, right around the corner. We are up to 21 entrants in the NICA Pitzone registration page so if you haven’t done so, please complete it ASAP. Personalized name plates can be had if you sign up by today. Don’t miss out on all the fun, camaraderie and competition of NICA!
Here’s our practice schedule this week;
