    Bike Safety and Certification

    Whether you are a veteran or just starting out as a bike rider all of us need to be mindful of being safe on the roads. 

    Imagine if all of us were taught the same rule book on biking. Turn signals, what to yell out if there are cars behind you. Even how to stop or ride in a group. 

    Getting VQ certified ensures safety and a consistent message for all outdoor riding. You will be able to appreciate a safe ride and a workouts are goal oriented. 

    We have ALL of our VQ members do this as a refresher. The main objective that if we know everyone goes thru the same training, the rides we do will be much safer and more fun and less stressful.

    Come join Dave Noda from Vision Quest Coaching for your bike certification. We will promise you will learn something, and have fun as well. 

    Here is what you need to bring:

    * Your Bike

    * Helmet

    * Be in your cycling clothes ready to ride (the first part will be in classroom format)

    * Be open minded, we are there to learn and learn from one another.

    * Cycling shoes

    * running shoes

    Our speaker for the June meeting will be Sharone Aharon, owner of WellFit Training Center. Sharone is a Level 3 certified triathlon coach with over 25 years of racing and coaching background and will be covering:

    The Power of Simulated Altitude Training

    Whether you are planning to win your next race, or just want to shed a few pounds, adding simulated altitude to your training will compound your results within a very short time. In fact, Training at Simulated Altitude has been proven to outperform regular training by 2-3 folds. In this lecture, you will gain an understanding of how training at lower oxygen levels can increase your aerobic power and sprint ability by 25-35% in 4 to 6 weeks. These kinds of results cannot be duplicated at sea level condition!

    Come for happy hour at 6 pm to meet and mingle with other CTCers.  A 1 hour clinic will start at 7 pm. 

    New & renewing members can pick up your CTC member gifts during the 6-7pm happy hour. We also sometimes have a raffle after the talk, so make sure you stay for the end!

    The club has booked a number of houses and cabins for Door County this year. All are in or near Egg Harbor within a couple of miles of the race. Space is limited so they're available on a first-come-first-served basis. Each spot is for three nights, Friday to Monday.

    Use this form to sign up for housing and to be guaranteed a spot. The house has some twins, a couple of bunks and some queens and kings so as with Galena you might have to share a queen bed with someone of the same sex. We'll try to accommodate all rooming requests once we have a complete list of people going. Housing will initially be for club members only but if we have any spaces left the registration deadline then we'll open it up to partners, kids etc.

    The sprint race is on the Saturday and the half iron is on the Sunday so we'll have a post-race party on the Sunday at one of the houses as in previous years. There are lots of CTC-ers signed up this year so it should be a fun time!
