Shop ride Sundays: Rainy days and Sunday

As of now the weather for Sunday looks good for a ride, but with the Livestrong Marathon and Half also on Sunday, the choice of routes is pretty limited, so south it is. There will be the no-drop as always and a pick group for either 32/38-miles and the un-escorted option of going to the 4-way stop at Kyle.

Also, Tammy from Tempo Multisport has secured a good deal for future rainout Sundays.
I won't be there this Sunday, I'm heading to the 2nd Triathlon America conference, nor will Tammy, as she's running in the marathon, so when reading this, remember it does apply to this Sunday.

Finally a shout out to regular shop ride cyclist and sometime ride leader Lisa Buckley. Lisa is currently the womens leader in the Austin Distance Challenge and will be running tomorrow for the win!


Hello Cyclists!

Tammy Metzger here, your long-time Sunday shop ride leader. As most of you know, I also have a triathlon team, Tempo Multisport, and one of our sponsors/partnerships is with Flywheel Fitness, an indoor rowing  spinning studio just up the road on South Lamar (2300 S. Lamar, to be exact). Given that we’ve had some unsavory weather of late, I approached Flywheel owner, Sara-Mai Conway, about having FREE indoor cycling for any rained out Sunday shop rides, and she was happy to oblige!

The Sunday shop ride will be canceled if it is raining, or if roads are still slick from previous rain. Now we have a solution to keep up that hard-earned fitness!! Instead of calling it quits, pack up that gear and head to Flywheel Fitness on 2300 S. Lamar. We have 11 Spinning bikes (spd cleat compatible or cages), as well as plenty of floor space for indoor trainers! Let’s make a party of it… we’ll even transport the Taco Deli breakfast tacos for post-spin goodness, and Irie Bean Coffee is just across the parking lot for that traditional post-ride java.

Of course, someone has to be around to let you all in, and keep an eye on things – that’ll be me. So this offer only holds if I am not out of town racing. To be certain, check the Tempo Multisport Facebook wall or follow @tempomultisport on twitter for up to the minute announcements. Now I’m actually hoping for a little rain! Indoor riding can be fun with a group of friends, and the best part is… no one gets dropped! ;)

See you soon!
