There’s something exciting brewing in Lake County, specifically Mount Dora. Even more specifically: in the roadie community out of Adrenaline Bike Works. We have had people drive an hour to come ride with us on the Social Sunday rides in recent months! Two friends who have become regulars on our Social Sunday Rides are […]
When I began seriously cycling 10 years ago, I just assumed that we weren’t really ever supposed to be comfortable on a bike for very long. Naturally, as my riding skill progressed, so did my saddle time. And so did the discomforts that come with long miles: saddle sores, an achy back, numbness in […]
What to believe?
“You need a mask.” – early March 2020
“Masks are for medical professionals only.” – a few days later in March, 2020
“You don’t need a mask.” – two weeks later, later March 2020
“The CDC recommends that every person in the US wears a covering when out in public.” – early April 2020
Why would anyone be surprised by such a statement? Of those who have experienced this ride as it has evolved over the years, this title could be a part of CAAM Event’s branding. Ever sine I did my first 200K in 2012, I was hooked on this ride. I have witnessed it morph with […]
Another year gone already? It seems we were just getting ready for the CAAM Events 200k 2018!
I’m excited that you are going to be in our group (the biggest group, mind you). If you will please download the route, it will be to your advantage and safety. Pack a spare tube and CO2 cartridge, […]
It is a lot of fun to read the training programs, tips and advice given by hot shots in their 30’s for challenging cycling events. I’ve read such pieces about numerous grueling cycling events in the South. I have done most of them and for sure – the ULTRA is indeed the most difficult. […]
“GET OFF THE ROAD!” is something we cyclists hear all too commonly while we are out riding. Or, we get buzzed by a car going 50+mph. Occasionally we even are smoked out by big trucks whose drivers think it’s funny to watch us choke in the thick black cloud that they aggressively assaulted us […]
One can easily pick Leslee Mitchell out on her bike. She is on the recumbent, coaching and cheering women on as they learn how to ride bikes and push themselves to new heights. Leslee was introduced to cycling during rehab after a back injury some 15 years ago. Due to the nature of the […]
The first time I did a CAAM 200K was in way back 2013, and it was the longest I had done. Back in those days the group was small enough that we could go into an establishment for lunch without having to rent the entire facility. Not any longer!
I’m excited that each time there […]
As a mom, personal trainer and coach, the gratification received by witnessing someone accomplish their goals is immeasurable. Recently I had a client come to me with a specific goal and needed some direction / training outlined to achieve the stated goal.
Felipe “El Torito” Monsalve (Pipe’) came to me for a consultation earlier this […]
