Monster Cross is a great course that you are either hitting great punchy climbs or flying down gravel single or double track trails. The Monster is a 50 mile course the […]

Before the leaves left the trees we gathered on North Glebe Road in Arlington to pick up trash and make this widely used stretch of road safer for everyone. It’s sad to see how much trash accumulates along this pretty stretch of road however we are very motivated to keep it clean and free of […]

9th Nov 2015 Posted in: Blog , Community , Events , Featured , Fun Comments Off on A weekend riding the Great Allegheny Passage – Claudia Gonzalez Martinez

A visual spin along the Allegheny Passage: The weekend started very early, much earlier than I am comfortable with, because, let’s face it, I am not and will never be a morning person. However, it was worth the effort: I had been looking forward to this weekend the entire year. The idea was to depart […]

Imagine you are out on your bike.  It’s a beautiful day, clear skies and warm temperatures. Your chain is humming, your cadence is at 95 rpm. Your heart rate is climbing, and you look down at your power meter readings and see you are at VO2 Max, hammering away at 15 miles per hour in […]

2:45am came quick as I pulled myself out of bed ready for a long day of pedaling. Stephanie Wolf had come up from Richmond the night before and crashed at my house which was our departure point. By 3:30am guest rider Wendy showed up with Kimberly and soon after Jerry. There were lots of little […]

The whistle blew and I took off like it was a mountain bike race. After two years off from racing and fairly recent back surgery I was just happy to be racing again, so off I went! This course favored a bike handler, someone who loved to corner with speed. The morning started early, setting […]

After a quiet start to the season we are now in full swing! This past weekend we saw Claudette once again take the podium and this time it was the TOP STEP! Huge congrats to this “newbie” to Duathlon (but no stranger to Time Trials). This was the Olympic Maryland Duathlon and she won her […]

Mother’s Day Weekend was sunny and warm here in Northern Virginia. I thought I’d share my weekend in a team post and I think Kim Goldman put it best when she said on Friday, “Today is one of those days I’m so happy I live in DC, it’s easy to take for granted until you […]
