***Boot camps return this week – so of course since you are at track practice you won’t miss them!

Please start wearing reflective clothing and lights at all outdoor workouts (running and riding).  Even a simple reflective vest is a massive help in keeping you safe through the darker months of the year.

*Reminder that Outdoor Tue/Thurs rides are moving start times to 6 pm – ending at 7pm due to the loss of light.  We will continue to try and ride outdoors as long as we can.  Indoor spins will not begin until after November.
