|A note from Karli & Tanja: |
This Club started a few years ago for us to ride together. It has turned into much more. Many of you are friends & meeting new friends, inviting new riders to join in activities that are not about riding at all. If you are still wondering if you should or want to give this Club a try, DO IT! Come out, ride with us. You will find a supportive environment to learn, challenge yourself or relax, whatever you need. We are here, having fun and want you to have fun with us too!

Meet at Full Cycle no later then 7:45am, we ride out at 8am sharp. You must sign annual waiver and listen, agree to and be checked off for the safety rules.

June 19th Tuesday Reaching your Cycling Goals w/ Traci BrownMany people have experienced moments in rides when everything flows, we feel our best and cycling seems magical. But for most, it's illusive and beyond our control. This doesn't have to be the case. Peak performance is a strategy which can be created and enjoyed any time. Participants will learn how to create the mindset to reach your goals both on the bike and off. This is the same mindset used by Olympic and pro athletes.
While laughing and being kept on the edge of their seats, attendees will:
*Gain an understanding of how your mind works & how to guide it toward the performance you want
*Learn how your values and beliefs motivate you or keep you stuck
*Learn how to create the exact performance you want on the unconscious level so you ride as fast you want with ease every time
Women only - open to all
