The Saturday Ladies only November Calendar
Good Morning Ladies
Wow, what a great 2 months. In September, we did some long, flat rides to work on Cadence (The Art of Spinning) and understanding how it gives that little extra zest when climbing, or when wanting to pick up your speed. Also, how cadence will keep the legs feeling fresh on a long, steady bike ride or a way to recover from a climb. All of this was in prep for the climbing month to come. In October we went out and climbed. We started out with a few .5 to 2 percent climbs that covered a span of 35 to 44 miles. Then we combined the distance and added a few more climbs as we set our goal to ride 9 mile hill. The last challenge for the month was to go into Mummy Mt. This was the most challenging ride of the month, Well what can I say, except YOU did it! Thank you all for hanging in there these past 2 months. You ask what is in store for November, This month will be a recovery month. A time to relax and just ride and enjoy the Coolness of Arizona. To all the Ladies that will be doing the Tour De Tucson, Good Luck and have fun, and to those that will be doing their first Tri, may the water, not be so cold, the wind on your back and you grow wings on your running shoes.
