Sunday, June 16

HEY! It’s been brought to my attention that tomorrow is Fathers day. If you want to spend time with your family, please do.

For this reason, I’m gonna just do a skills ride on MTB’s tomorrow.

 Meet: 6:00

Leave: 6:30

Back by: 8:30

See some of you in the AM.

 

June 11th – June 16th

Hey!

Firstly: I’d like to welcome all the kids who are now joining us on El Grupo! For those on the team now, please take care to welcome them to the ‘family’ and get to know them.

Secondly: El Grupo is one heck of a privilege. If you don’t want to be on this team, thats fine. No hard feelings. Otherwise, you’ve just gotta show up for practice a minimum of 3 days a week (vacation and other circumstances don’t apply). There are plenty of kids who would kill to have the opportunity of being on the team. Cross training practices are so damn good for you. Mountain biking with your friends (and me, of course) is rad! So wake up early! Come run with us! I know it’s early, but show up.

Practice Schedule for the week:

Tuesday: Cross training – Meet 5:45am – Begins 6:00am – Ends 7:00am – Bring running shoes and water

Wednesday: Short Track MTB – Meet at 5:30pm – Leave at 6:00pm – Ends at 8:00pm – Mountain Bike practice. If you’re a NEW RIDER and you need a mountain bike, please contact me via email or phone (ben@elgrupocycling.org or 520-244-5542) and we’ll get one setup

Thursday: Cross training – Meet 5:45am – Begins 6:00am – Ends 7:00am – Bring running shoes and water

Friday: Cross training – Meet 5:45am – Begins 6:00am – Ends 7:00am – Bring running shoes and water

Saturday: Day off for all except: Izzie, Kaileen, Brayden, Eve – Shootout for you. 5:45 old man start. If anyone REALLY wants to do the old man shootout please just ask me. 

Sunday: MTB ride – 6:00am meet – 6:30am leave – End 9:00am

 

Let me know if you have any questions. Cheers and see you all soon.

 

 

 

This Saturday Ride – Cancelled

Hey!

Post first week of bike camp, we’re gonna cancel the organized rides on Saturday. Enjoy your Saturday and go on a ride with your friends or family. 

If you would like to do the shootout on Saturday (and normally do), feel free, but there will be no organized coaches out, so we don’t encourage this.

Hope everyone is stoked for a SWEET MTB ride on Sunday at 50yr trail. We haven’t been out there in a while.
