  1. Awesome way to feel comfortable riding your bike!!

  2. This training series is exactly what I need! Can’t wait for Spring when I can start at series 1.

  3. Just got a road bike. I know very little. I would like to take a beginning class on the basics…Any “newbie” classes coming up.
    Thanks 🙂

  4. Are there any local classes that train you for riding a century?

    • Hi Laurie, that is a great question. I am not aware of any century-specific training programs; however, our Road Bike Training Camps and spring/summer training series help riders build road biking skills that can be applied. Many of our participants have gone on to ride their first centuries, toured other states and countries by bike and even bike across America! So stay tuned for social and/or rides on our calendars.

    • Hi Laurie, I am out of the country so please forgive my delay in responding. We do not currently have classes that train women for century rides. I am in the process of assessing the needs and interests of our members as I prepare for 2018. You can keep your eye on our calendar for future training opportunities. Our road bike training camps are a great offering I expect to offer next year; three-day weekend of coaching. Again, details will be on our calendar as 2018 is rolled out. I suggest you check back in January, http://www.Meetup.com/RLAGcycling. Carolyn

  5. Are there any classes locally that trains people for a century?
