Cycling

The season begins in mid-August and continues to the Fall Fest State Games in October. Cycling is a very relaxed program. Our main goals are fun, exercise, and training for competitions.

Coordinator:

Cheryl Decker – ZachandCheryl@verizon.net

Training Times & Locations (August-October):

Sundays, 10:00am – 11:15am, Trail at Lake Elkhorn

Practice Overview:

Sunday: Each practice starts with athletes practicing shifting gears on a gradual hill. Athletes then ride the trail accompanied by coaches and volunteers. Advanced riders travel approximately 7 miles. Other riders travel distances based on their abilities. There are walkers and other bikers on the trail during practice so athletes must be able to follow instructions and be aware of their surroundings.
