In all seriousness, can someone tell me if Pierce Mill is spelled “ie” or “ei”???? Google it – have we really been doing it wrong all these years?!?!?!?

Abraham Parker & Debbie Pederson are planning an unofficial run on Saturday at 8am. This is not an official Team Z workout – there is no official Team Z workout on Saturday due to the holiday. I’ve put it on the poll – know it’s optional and unsupported!

Sunday Bike Fit & Selection Clinic – 10:00 AM – Ed’s House, Annandale, VA

 

The Bike Fit and Selection Clinic is a lecture-based session. Please bring a piece of paper or pen IF you want to take notes! At this clinic, we will talk about the differences in bikes (Tri vs. Road) including how they are designed, what they are designed for, and which type you might want to buy. We’ll talk about what drives cost in terms of frame material and components, and about what you should expect for a given budget. We’ll introduce you to other factors such as women’s specific geometry, the importance of proper fit, as well as fit related pain and issues you should be aware of. We’ll address shoes, pedals, where to buy and where not to buy. We’ll give you our opinions on the local shops and the staff that work there. This is a great clinic for everyone (even if you have a bike already), especially if you have never been taught about bikes, how to buy them, or what you should expect from customer service when in DC area bike store.
When:  Sunday, 10:00 AM

Where: Ed’s House – 4021 Justine Drive, Annandale, VA 22003

Who: All Team Members!

Street parking is plentiful.
