Weekly Newsletter 3/14/14

Are you itching to get outside and ride?  This weekend Mike Haskell is planning a muffin ride to the Runcible Spoon on Sunday which will depart the 14th St. Pier at 9am.  Keep your eyes on the facebook site because it may change to Saturday depending on the weather forecast.

We’ve got some great things coming up that you’ll want to get on your calendar!  On Saturday 3/22 we will be having a “Gear Clinic” at Symposia Bookstore in Hoboken.  If you are unsure of what you need for a first race or you’ve been considering going high tech, you won’t want to miss this panel discussion led by some of our gear heads.  Immediately following the clinic, we will be having the social over at Moran’s.  Our hard working Athlete Education Committee is also planning a bike handling/tire changing clinic for early April so that you’ll be ready to hit the roads as the spring weather approaches.

The first annual Fun Race has been scheduled for the weekend of April 12th thanks to our Social Committee with the help of Kelly Calabrese.  GCTri members will be broken into teams and will be running, drinking and doing other physically and mentally challenging activities.  Think of the Amazing Race but with some GCTri style and triathlete flair.  It’s going to be awesome.

Reminder that you have 1 more week to use our club coupon code for the purchase of a RoadID.  All members are encouraged to have one for riding. Visit the members only page on the website for the discount code.

Good luck to Heather Cameron, Lisa Mangino and Juan Buenano and any other team members racing the NYC Half Marathon this weekend.  If you have upcoming races, please get them on the calendar so we know you’re racing!

Good luck to our GCTri members who are racing IRONMAN Arizona and the Philadelphia Marathon this weekend. 

The weather is still perfect for muffin rides.  We will depart the 14th St. Pier at 8:30am on Saturday.  For those of you who wish to avoid riding on River Rd., please meet us at the entrance to Palisades park by 9:10am.  We will ride either the  Market or into Piermont for some tasty treats.

A few of us will be convening at Morans at 4:30pm to watch the 2013 IRONMAN Go Pro World Championships.  Stop by and help us try to find Matt Bach and Mark Tsigounis on television.
