Ride on July 3rd

Ride on July 3rd is scheduled tentatively for July 3rd. I know some people may be out of town for this date so if we don't get enough interest we'll cancel. If we ride, we'll ride a bit later so that we can catch the fireworks from an interesting vantage point (Beaucatcher Mountain (really a big hill), Helen's Bridge perhaps). Then we'll head on down to the ol' Bywater for refreshment and merry making (some of us will not have work the next day, things could get a little crazy, so plan transportation arrangements accordingly).

Saturday June 25th at Asheville Community Yoga Center there will be a special program: Yoga for Runners and Cyclists taught by the lovely Lindsay Fields. Suggested donation is $15-$20, but as always at ACYC no one is excluded based on financial situation so pay what you can, if you can. Following the program there will be a leisurely all levels ride leaving out from the yoga center and following the river. Remember to bring a lock and a helmet for your bike. Also see the flyer on the previous post.

Ride on Sunday, June 19th, (yes, I know it's Fathers Day, is nothing sacred?)

Join us this Sunday, June 19th for a leisurely 10-ish mile beginner bike ride with your friends and neighbors. Show your Dad how much you appreciate him by bringing him along for a ride. Tell Dad to dust off that old Schwinn Varsity he's got in the garage, replace the tubes and come on out. We'll be meeting at 4:30 and riding out at 4:45. Our ride will follow a route that is relatively flat, but be aware this is Asheville so some hills are unavoidable (don't worry though we wait for everyone!). Our meeting spot is at 108 Mount Clare Ave. Click the link to go to a Google Map. Our ride will end as usual at The Bywater, don't worry if you're not a member b/c most of our regular riders are and so we can sign you in (provided you're over 21 or under 16 for children who are w/ parents.). Have a wonderful week and we'll see ya on Sunday!

Other News:

Asheville Community Yoga Center, the free yoga center in North Asheville, offers 7 free yoga classes a day and workshops and special events on the weekends. On June 25th from 2:30-4:00 they are offering a workshop specifically for runners and cyclist, targeting specifically the muscle groups used during these activities. The workshop is being lead by Lindsay Fields. She will be providing participants valuable information on breathing and visualization techniques, pre/post run/ride stretches, and proper alignment tips ensuring that you will be able to continue biking and running for a long time to come. You don't want to miss this event. There is a suggested donation of $20, but as always, they're the free yoga center so you can pay what you can afford.
