Are you interested in increasing your long-distance riding? Like to ride a metric century (62 miles)? A full century of 100 miles? Prepping for that dream touring vacation? Just wanna go a little farther or faster than last year?

No matter what your goal, whether you want to survive or thrive, this series of rides will gradually build up your legs and conditioning (and, uh, butt).

The listed ride's lengths and speeds increase in small steps. Start out with whatever length you're comfortable with, add about 5 miles a week, and before you know it, you'll be riding as long and as far as you want.


Street Skills for Cyclists

Don't let fear keep you from feeling the joy that comes from riding a bicycle! Learn how to take control and share the road with confidence. In this class, you will learn how to interact with traffic, maintain your bicycle, make roadside repairs, and handle your bike in an emergency. This program combines an on-line tutorial with a bicycle skills session: Participants complete the on-line portion during their own time, and then attend the skills session on the 13th. After learning the avoidance maneuvers, the class will take a group ride to put their new found skills into practice.

This class follows the League of American Cyclists "Traffic Skills 101" course. I offer this class in the Spring and Fall in University Park through Penn State Health Matters Check the Health Matters website for scheduleing info, or write or call me get on the Get in Touch page.




It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest incident of the nineteenth century. -- Author Unknown

What do you call a cyclist
who doesn't wear a helmet?
An organ donor. -- David Perry

For instance, the bicycle is the most efficient machine ever created: Converting calories into gas, a bicycle gets the equivalent of three thousand miles per gallon. -- Bill Strickland, The Quotable Cyclist
