Fit & Feel on Your Bike (Get Ready for Spring Riding)

Thursday, February 9
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
 
Cardinal Bicycle Grandin Village

Has your butt ever hurt on a ride? Or maybe your back, feet, shoulders, or hands? Let us help you fix that problem.
 
The only part of your body that should hurt on a ride is your legs as you push hard to the finish, power up a climb, or finish some tough intervals. Pain in your feet, saddle area, hands, neck, shoulders, or anywhere else is not normal. Learn how to adjust and set up your bike to maximize comfort, avoid injury, and improve your power. Bring your bike and your shoes and our staff will help you learn how to adjust your bike to fit your body.
 
Schedule:
6:00 to 6:20 - Arrive and socialize. Grab a drink or some food from the cafe.
6:20 to 7:30 - Fit and Feel on Your Bike
7:30 to 8:00 - Questions and time to hang out
