WHAT WAS I THINKING!
By – ALICIA EVANS
Were you riding high on a wave of caffeine (like most cyclists) when you agreed to participate in the 24HRS of Adrenalin for yet another year?
Maybe your friends caught you at a weak moment when they asked if you’d like to be a member of their team for this awesome race and even though your bike is covered in dust, the chain a slight shade of ‘rust’ you think ‘why not’!? I’m no Cory Wallace but I can turn the pedals over, sign me up! Wait… how long? Regardless of whether you are part of a team or riding solo, it’s time to get the cogs moving, if you haven’t already. Questions to ask yourself;
• Did my pants shrink in the wash?
• Have my wheels turned a revolution since my last event?
• Where is my bike?
Given you are probably sitting on the couch with your laptop as you read this here is your ‘To Do List’ from the Coach’s Corner.
• Google Wind Trainers, Spin Classes, Emergency Coaching

• If you aren’t a self proclaimed bike mechanic contact your
local bike shop, your bike may need a little TLC. Take a look
