      Our guest speaker this month will be Adam Kaplan, co-owner and cycling analyst at Get a Grip Cycles. Adam will share his tips for getting your bike race-ready.

      About our guest speaker: 

      A 13 year cycling industry professional, Adam fell in love with cycling while attending the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and started working in the bike industry after moving to San Diego so he could ride all year long. In 2000, he took his first professional bike fitting seminar and realized the potential for cycling analysis as a standalone business.

      In 2002, Adam teamed up with Get a Grip to build their first cycling analysis studio. Since then, he’s received certifications from dozens the top professional cycling organizations including the Serotta Professional Institute, the Serotta International Cycling Institute, Signature Cycles and Cyclologic, among others.

      Chicago Blue Dolphin's John Fitzpatrick will be covering 'The Magnificent Seven-Seven Tips to Improving Your Triathlon Swim This Season.'

      John Fitzpatrick states it’s a truism that the swim doesn’t make your triathlon performance but it can sure break it.  After all, if your swim is more like a “near death experience,” you won’t have much energy left for the longer biking and running legs.

      And on a positive note, John states he has seen OVER AND OVER that triathletes who make their swim faster and more efficient improve their overall race times. If you’re not as exhausted and stressed after the swim, you’ll have more energy to bike harder and run faster.

      At the July meeting, he will be giving his advice for improving your swim, and ultimately, your overall race time.
