As a long distance runner, I turn to cycling in the summer to give me the endurance benefits of a multi-hour workout without adding additional miles to my weekly mileage. cycling is a perfect form of cross training!
My friend Liz Lukowski has joined with Paula McConnell to create VeloHello, the Capital District’s Girl Meets Bike Event to encourage women to try road, urban or mountain biking.
VeloHello, The Capital District’s Girl Meets Bike Event, begins Friday, April 30, 2010, at the Downtube Cycle Works in Albany, New York with a party from 6-9 P.M.
The cocktail party will feature product giveaways, a fashion show, a bicycle fit demonstration and several mini-workshops on cycling skills. There is no charge for the Friday evening event.
On Saturday, May 1, 2010, SUNY Albany will be host to workshops in bicycle mechanics, mountain, and urban biking; and a glamour photo shoot highlighting the participants and their bicycles. The Capital Bicycle Racing Club will be teaching road racing skills and leading a practice ride. A bag lunch and product samples will be provided.
The fee for the Saturday events is $30.00; registration is required. Women who are interested in participating in the Saratoga Spa criterium are eligible for a discounted registration fee of $15.00.
