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: 35-50 miles at moderate speeds (18-20 mph) and hills. Meet at the shop with your bike, helmet, and fluids. Periodic re-groups.

New Saturday "Bravo" Ride, 7:45 am: A gentler paced 25-28 mile ride for all cyclists. Roughly 13-14 mph pace, frequent re-groups, low-stress riding with friends. Coffee stop about 5 miles before the end.

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

Understanding The Differences In Cycling Shoes - There are many types of cycling shoes, and for good reason. Each type of cycling can benefit from a shoe specifically designed for it. Mountain biking shoes have tread patterns on the bottom more akin to hiking shoes. These shoes help you negotiate steeper sections where you might not have enough traction (or leg strength) to pedal. Shoes for road cycling, especially for longer rides or races, typically have smooth bottoms to reduce weight, improve aerodynamics, and provide an ideal mounting surface for the different cleat systems available. In between are shoes designed to accommodate some walking or hiking while still functioning well on the bike. These shoes typically have a flex point in the sole to make walking easier, and offer recessed cleats that don't contact the walking surface.
