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.

*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.

**Pool Closures are complete.  We are back to our normal swim schedule at all pools.  Outdoor facilities are closed.

***No boot camps for this build week  –  boot camps return on Monday Oct 3 (next week).
