On Wednesday night the rain prevented us from riding but we made great use of the time. We did a worksheet designed to calculate how many grams of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates each individual should to eat in one day, looked at a sample menu, and got a few new recipes to try out. A few of the women who raced Tri for the Cure had a bunch of great questions about preparing for their tri.
Barbara, Robin, and I rode 40 miles on Sunday. We started at
As a side note, I rode with the Bicycle Village Aurora’s group ride. There were about 20 riders. We split up into two groups, both of which are no drop, and rode to
We will revisit the how to change a tire clinic. This is something that takes practice and lots of it to get comfortable doing it. Think of where you get stuck or what part of the process that you want me to demonstrate in more detail. We will start at 6 pm and go riding at 6:30 pm. Whoever shows up will get to vote on which ride we take. All routes will be between 6-10 miles and are a no rider let behind ride.
Sunday we will keep our ride close to the store. We will meet at the store at 7:30 am and leave at 8 am. We will ride down to REI and back to the store before the path gets crowded. Then we can add on the long loop around

I hope all of you have chosen a distance that you want to ride for the Venus de Miles. Your options are 30, 50, or 65. You should ride which ever distance you plan on doing the day of the event at least once before the actual ride. Concentrate on eating and hydrating regularly so that you will have an enjoyable ride. Remember, they do not time you, and no one wins first place. You should enjoy the ride and the rest stops. I talked to the women running the Venus booth at the Tri for the Cure Expo on Saturday and they said that the 30 was a nice scenic ride, while the other two have a few good hills. So be ready, cause we will look great in our team jerseys!!
I will post another sample menu on the blog. See the link below.
