    I would suggest getting in with a team that is part of the Ready to Roll training series. For a little over $100 (on top of whatever team fee), you get 12-13 weekly fully supported group rides,...

    I started out over a decade ago riding in the mid to upper 70s. Over time I worked my way up to averaging around 82-84. About 2 years ago, I started making a concerted effort during trainer rides...

    We turn the lights down somewhat low in the spin studio in our gym, but that is just so it is easier to read the backlit screen on the display and so you can sweat without having to look at the...

    I rode about 43 with NWCC yesterday morning, and we were done by a little after 10am. It actually wasn't too bad that early.

    Those examples aren't really in the same ballpark as the deal you got, but I won't jack the thread anymore to talk about it. You appear to have gotten an excellent deal!
