Pedal Off The Pounds (POTP)
The popular Pedal Off the Pounds program is designed for new, overweight and/or out of shape riders. This program is designed to start you off slow and easy. We teach nutrition, bike etiquette, how to shift, how to change a tire and most of all we have FUN! You’ll be divided into teams (think Biggest Loser style) and each meeting you’ll learn, be inspired and even face a few fun team challenges! Oh…and did we mention that there are PRIZES involved?!
Meetings are every Monday evening April 29 - August 26. Check in between 5:30-6pm and the official meeting/ride starts at 6pm. Please do not register if you cannot commit to this schedule. Your team will be counting on you to attend!
