Original plan developed by Mike Trowbridge. Now organized by Steve Twist, Evan Billman, Eric Ayars, and Greg Watkins.

Coach Mike’s Cal Park Hills – Winter 2021-2022

Wednesday Nights, 6:00 PM Roll Out from North Rim As ALWAYS these workouts are FREE and open to everyone... and ALL abilities... Meet Wednesday night(s) at North Rim Adventure Sports... We roll out at 6:00 PM. Same MO as in years past... Warm up out through the park and over to CA Park... do the planned workout then cool down back through the park. The whole training session is about 1-1½ hour time frame. All abilities are welcome. Less experienced riders can simply do fewer laps if desired. A head light and helmet are definitely needed... Although the streets are fairly well lit, and traffic is low. ALSO... A cadence meter is very helpful. Rain always cancels.
