Thanks to a little bit of fresh snow on the ground, our first XC Ski evening will be TODAY!!! (Monday), so mark it on your calendar and plan to come out to Gold Bar Park from 7-8:30pm for a causal hour and a half of skiing that’s suitable for experienced and new skiers!
Besides, that, everything is as normal for the new year. Remember, if you are interested in getting out (or rather, in) a little more this week, make sure you check (or post) which rides you’ll be doing on Zwift to meet up with other club members.
Lastly, Aerobic Power, the gym where we do out Indoor Training workouts are going on strong! If you’ve signed up for these are and are unable to attend, please remember to post these on the swap board so that other members can attend.
