Trainer Party Schedule

In 2008 I created a trainer party series to bring local cyclists together during the winter. Let’s face it: indoor training can be boring, but it’s much more fun when you do it with others. As dedicated cyclists we already have everything we need to train indoors, so why pay for Spinning® classes? Those are intended more for general fitness than for hard-core cyclists anyway. If you want to follow your own plan while still enjoying the company of your cycling buddies, give my series a try.

In its inaugural season, the series was a modest success. Last year the attendance was down, but it was still good training for those who showed up. Now in its third season, the series is being revamped. I have moved the start time up an hour to 9 a.m. and shortened the duration to 3 hours. Experience has shown that participants want to arrive early, get their work done and get on with the rest of the day. And instead of showing you old race coverage, this winter I will present four popular cycling-themed movies for you to enjoy while you ride.

If you live in West Bend, then this weekend you will receive the 2010 fall activities guide from the city’s Department of Parks, Recreation & Forestry. On page 16 you’ll find this:

You get to work out, watch a movie, eat snacks and chug sports drink absolutely free! And again this season we’ll do the magazine exchange: bring your used cycling magazines and go home with something you haven’t read yet. No registration is required and the series is open to everyone; you don’t have to be a West Bend resident or a bike club member to participate. I hope to see you there!
