    The weekend of 2/6 and 2/7 in Team Z

    Hi folks.  One change for the weekend – On Saturday I believe we (I) am biting off more than I can chew with trying to squeeze in the review of the season, a bike maintenance clinic, and the cycling drills/technique clinic.   I’m going to reschedule the Bike Maintenance clinic for closer to the start of the “end of the winter”.  It will be a few weeks, but its coming back – pinky swear.

    =================================================================

    In this email:

    Weekend Poll:  Please Click on me to Vote! Very important for everything, always – but especially the clinics at my house.  Please let me know if you are thinking about coming. Even on the edge – this is not a promise and I’m not taking role.  So if you vote yes b/c you plan to, but something happens and you don’t make it – its ok.  I’d prefer that over a vote of  5 people coming and 45 show up!

    1. Saturday Group Run:  6-16 miles @ Haines Point (9 am)
    2. Saturday New Z Plan your season clinic – Coach Ed’s House 2-3 pm
    3. Bike Maintenance Clinic (basics, how to change a flat, etc), Cycling Technique Clinic.  These will take a bit of time so 3 pm until???
    4. Sunday Group Spin:  1-4 hours at Fast Track – 6:00-10:00 AM
    5. Sunday – The Freestyle Speed Clinic:  10:00-11:00 AM – Coach Dominic and Kerry Kramer
