Yoga for cyclists

I have been doing a lot of yoga for the past couple of years, practising at home almost every morning. In chatting with a friend of mine, I learned that he has created a series of yoga for cyclist videos with Canadian Cycling Magazine. I say “yoga friend” because I know him originally from going to his studio 14 years ago…he has become a cycling friend too. He is both a wonderful instructor and a crazy strong cyclist.
Anyhow, thought I would share this with the club as it is actually one of the better videos I have used, especially since he focuses on our cycling needs: hips, back, quads, hamstrings, and shoulders.

Enjoy.

Library Meetup – Where to

You may have noticed the surge in riders participating in our regular rides this year. With so many riders now coming out for each ride, the group can easily spill out into the path of library patrons trying to enter and exit the building if we’re not paying attention.

So please group up to the right of the entrance, on the sidewalk where there are usually vacant parking spaces as well. Anywhere that’s not blatantly in the way once 50 riders show up, will do.

Thanks for your cooperation in reducing the impact we have on our meeting spot hosts.FacebooktwittermailFacebooktwittermail
