June Membership Meeting – Special Time and Place!

We are excited that Advanced Radiology will kindly be hosting us at their location for our June Membership Meeting.
Thursday, June 8
6:30 p.m. for transition clinics and social
7:30 p.m. meeting time
Advanced Radiology
311 N Keene St, Columbia, MO 65201
We are going to make this a little more interesting and fun by hosting two transition clinics at 6:30 p.m., an hour before our meeting! Each clinic will have tips from beginners to the more experienced, and they will also be based on the lengths of the races you hope to race: one more for sprints and super-sprints, and the other for longer distance (Half-Iron and Ironman distance). Kimberly Earnest and Mark Vellek will be our transition guides and they look forward to working with you all!
So if you feel like you can learn a few tips, come bring your bike and gear out to the Advanced Radiology parking lot where we will have bike racks (graciously borrowed from Ultramax) and plenty of space for you all to try out some new things!
Feel like you know how to transition good enough already? Then come out at 6:30 p.m. and chill with the Advanced Radiology crew and Deb Crawford, where they are providing us drinks and appetizers for the night! They will start opening the bar and food at 6:30 p.m., which will give you a full hour to come out and socialize before our meeting. 
As for the meeting, Deb has mentioned that she is devising some great games that will measure our determination and strength as triathletes in order for us to win some FREE DEXA BODY SCANS from their clinic. If you don’t know what a body composition DEXA scan is, it is a dual energy examination (with minimal radiation) that measures the amount of muscle and fat that you have within your body. Several athletes like to have one completed at the beginning and end of their training year to see the advancement of their muscle composition. If you would like to read more about this, here is a website that I found to be easily understandable and informative: http://www.bonewellness.com/dexa/
Please RSVP to Deb Crawford at Advanced Radiology so she know how much food to anticipate. To do this, please look for her email on the trigeeks listserve messages. Thanks!

Group Bike Rides Begin Tuesday, April 18

IMG_0402Group rides will begin tomorrow night at Bethel Park and continue until the beginning of September! Here’s the format of group rides this year! Please read carefully because they have changed slightly from last year (for Nibbler’s especially).

Main changes to highlight:
1) Tuesday wheels down at 5:30 at Bethel Park for EVERY GROUP! The Nibblers will roll out right behind the racing group so we can establish a bit more of a group bond with each other. We are all one team!
2) Thursday wheels down at 5:45 for EVERY GROUP! We give a little more time for folks to get to Bur Oak on Thursday’s but again the Nibblers will roll out right behind the racing group.
3) There will be no Sunday Group ride scheduled each week. I encourage EVERYONE to post their Saturday and Sunday group rides. If it is NO DROP then let folks know that in the post. If it is a DROP ride, that’s okay too, just post your average MPH. Post the route whenever you can and PLEASE post to trigeeks, not just Facebook for those who are not on Facebook. I plan to post several weekend group rides for the Nibblers, just not every week. 🙂
4) We plan to have several socials after the rides this year. Look for at least one a month. We will bring the CMC tent, beverages and snacks so plan on staying a bit after the ride. We will post the group social nights to the listserve.
5) Nibblers PLEASE read: We will be doing the training rides a bit different this year. We will be offering 8 weeks of training rides from April 18 to June 6 both on Tuesday and Thursday. These will be NO DROP rides that give newcomers a bit more introduction to road biking. We will go over rules of the road, signals and group biking best practices. On Tuesdays we will work our way up from 8 miles roughly to 13 miles with 4 routes. See schedule and routes hereOn Thursday we will do the out and back on Rangeline adding mileage each week. Beyond the first 8 weeks we will still make every effort to do a no drop ride when leaders are available but by then everyone should be familiar with the routes and the Nibblers are known to take care of each other (no man left behind).
MORE Information – also posted to CMC website!
