Next week our practices will be Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. I haven't decided for sure yet (when the days get a little longer) if we will have our on-the-bike practices on Tue/Thu or Mon/Wed. - ThisTuesday we will have an introduction to "Spinning" which is a structured cycling workout on stationary bikes. Meet at 3:45 at the spin studio in the heart of Montrose. It is near the 2200 block of Honolulu just west of Anderson's Pet shop on the south side of the street. Spinning can be fun, good cycling exercise and a great alternative for us on rainy days. - Thursday at 4:00 I will teach some basic bicycle maintenance. It will be at Clark High School in a covered, illuminated space - I'm not sure yet exactly where, but if you show up in front of Clark we will direct you. This will be basic stuff everyone should know to do most every time they ride plus some other maintenance know-how that will be important to know sooner or later. I will make sure to teach something that even experienced mountain bikers might not know. -Saturday at 10:00 am we will meet at the entrance to Descanso Gardens (La Canada) for an on-the-bike practice. We will ride over towards JPL to practice in the Hahamonga wash area and should be back around 1:00 pm. See you there; comments or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org
First "Practice" of 2010: Trail Maintenance in Alta Dena
Mountain Bikers need to help maintain the trails we ride on and coincidentally this is our first chance. CORBA and the Forest Service are organizing a trail work day on Saturday, Jan. 9th. I will supervise any GUSD riders who come to help out. It is an all day activity, although you can hike back down to the road any time if you need to leave early. A late lunch will be provided to those who RSVP after the work around 2pm. Bring water and a snack to carry with you. Meet at the entrance to Descanso at 7:15am to carpool Or at the top of Cheney Trail Rd. in Alta Dena at 8:00 am.
