Feburary 2011 Ladies Only Saturday Bike ride calendar

Good Morning Ladies
January was a pretty Cold Month. I hope that February will warm up a bit. The one thing that I do know: Coach wind will be with us for the next 3 months and he may invite some of his assistance coaches (rain, cold) along with his cousin Gust, to join us on some of the bike rides. This is part of the joy of winter cycling in Arizona. This month we will learn how to protect each other from coach wind and his cousin gust. In order To ride with the assistance we will have to have the proper gear. Things like a thin rain jacket, a long sleeve cycling jersey, long finger gloves, a thin hat or cycling ear warmers to wear under our helmet, long cycling pants and toe covers for our shoes.
I will show you different pace line formation to cut through the wind and how to angle your body to stay upright in the cross winds/gust winds. How to drop your head and look out the top of your glasses, This will allow you to breath in a strong headwind. With this knowledge you will be prepared for the lessons that Coach Wind and Cousin Gust have in store for us this winter.
