Join us for Our Shop Rides and Spin Class

La Dolce Velo shop ride

Spin class is back beginning November 4!

One of the best ways to enjoy cycling is with other enthusiasts. We can help you learn the rules and find a group suited to your abilities and goals. We have several weekly shop rides:

Wednesdays, 6:30 pm (November through March) - Spin class! So what if it's pouring out. Bring your bike, trainer, fluids, towel and dry clothes for after and get a challenging, fun, cycling specific spin workout that will help you get stronger in the right way this winter. Single leg drills, spin-ups, simulated hill climbs, steady state efforts are all led by Coach Muddy Waters in a fun group environment. Join us!

Saturdays, 7:00am: 30-40 miles at moderate speeds (15-18 mph) and hills. Meet at the shop with your bike, helmet, and fluids. Periodic re-groups.

Sunday morning "Waffle" Ride - meet at Everett Alvarez Jr Park in Santa Clara to roll at 9:00 AM. Twenty flat miles, mostly on paved bike paths, ending with coffee and breakfast near the shop. Perfect social or recovery ride. Helmets required.

Today's Tip

Clothing For Cold Weather Cycling - The key to enjoying cold-weather cycling is dressing in layers, a technique that makes it easy to adjust to changes in weather, temperature and wind direction simply by stripping or adding some clothing. Start with a moisture-moving base layer that pulls perspiration away from your skin to keep you dry and warm. Add a long-sleeve jersey to this (what weight to wear depends on the temperature) and top these layers off with a light vest or jacket that can easily be stuffed into a jersey pocket if you warm up. Never make the mistake of riding only in shorts. Sure, your legs are doing a lot of work. But that frigid wind will chill your knees, thighs and ligaments quickly, which slows blood flow and may cause injury. A good rule is to protect your legs whenever it's 60 degrees or colder. Knee and leg warmers are handy because they're easy to put on, take off and carry. Knickers offer knee warmth and look cool. As the mercury drops though, consider full tights for optimum warmth. Please contact us for more specific recommendations. We're here to help.
