Saturdays Ladies Only bikeride 5/8/2010

Good Morning Ladies
First, I would like to say "Happy Mothers Day" to everyone and to wish all the Ladies doing the SheRox Tri this weekend good luck. With the utmost honor, "Welcome Home Linda B" and congrats on a great journey.

This week we are meeting at South Mountain. Be there at 6 am ready to ride into San Juan at 6:30 am sharp. The ride into San Juan is a lot of fun and then you get the pleasure of climbing out. This ride is very challenging, so please don't get discouraged, just keep at it. Speed isn't important on this type of ride, focus on keeping your legs moving at a good even pace (cadence). On your way out remember to get as much as you can out of the downhill, so the speed can carry you at least 1/2 way up the next climb.
You may ask why are we doing this type of ride so soon:
--I have a time trial up to the Towers this Saturday and instead of canceling the ride altogether, I have had all the Ladies to come out and ride San Juan. Then, later on in the year we will come out and ride it again, so each of you can see how much you have grown in your cycling. From time to time, it's good to have a ride that is very difficult and then come back and ride that same ride and see how much better you feel.
I know from experience that it feels good to surpass the point where you walked or had to stop for a moment or to say "Why did I stop last time?" ...Yes you will say this.

It is supposed to be hot this weekend, so please prep your water bottles (freeze two on a slant). Also be sure to take care of your body by drinking plenty of fluids.

If you have any questions about this ride or anything else, please ask via email or phone. No question is too silly or stupid. I was told by an instructor once, that the only stupid question is the one not asked. So, please ASK and I will do my best to answer them all.

----------A note from Charlie

Hey Everyone
First off, to all of the mothers out there Happy Mothers Day. This Sunday I`m planning another easy ride. We will start from The Nosh(48th St. &Warner S.E.corner) & ride in the Awahtukee area. We will ride as hard or easy as the group wants & set a distance depending on who shows up for the ride. Ride start time is 6:30 a.m. We can go in two groups or split along the way & go different distances. See you Sunday.

Have a great Week
