I can’t believe Fall is already here again. The days are getting shorter, the shelves at Trader Joe’s are lined with pumpkin spiced everything, and football is on tv almost every night.  It’s tempting to let some cobwebs grow on your bike as you push all thoughts of training aside because, I get it, it’s been a long year, and grabbing a beer and bratwurst at Oktoberfest sounds way better than doing another damn interval at Fiesta Island or up Pershing.

But, don’t completely give in to the temptation!  A little time away from the bike is ok, as long as you keep this in mind: now is the most important time to start thinking about your cycling goals for next year. Base Season is here, and a good base is imperative for a successful season.

Whether your goal is to crush a race or two (or the whole series, ehem, ..Kristina Vevia!) at the Kenda Cup, complete a Bucket List ride like the High Cascade or Maah Daah Hey 100, or earn a gold coin for Leadville, I can help you achieve it. (Even if you don’t have a race or ride goal, but maybe have just a fitness goal of being a faster, fitter rider, I can help you.)
