Girls, come and get dirty. Join in the fun at Flatrock Park Dam Mountain Bike Trail as we expand on basic mountain bike skills taught by Joanne Cogle, 2x Xterra World Championship qualifier. This is a great cross training activity for those fall and winter months when it is too chilly to be on your road/tri bike. Don't have a mountain bike? Don't worry, give the shop a call and they can help square you away with one of the rental (free of charge for the clinic). You're running out of excuses. Come ready to ride!
Bring along a sharable snack for after ride refreshments.
This is going to be fun!
Ladies, come on by for $3 wine tasting and a little yoga with Kristi Snyder. Not nescessarily in that order. This one is a great way to kick off the New Year and get to know other female cyclists and fitness fans! See you at 630pm! (leave your bikes at home!)
Not sure on your rights or the rules of the road? Want to learn proper group etiquette? How about riding in a pace line?
We'll have a short Q&A session and then head out on bike (leave yours at home, we will supply) for practical application. It's going to be a fun one!
Join us for a day full of fun and adventure. It will be an action packed weekend at Callaway and we can't wait to share it with you. So pack your bags and come stay with us!
