January 8, 2009 – My name is Richard Drydak and we’re conducting cycling seminars to assist participants at cycling rides and specifically for The Ride to Conquer Cancer (RTCC). I’m a participant and an RTCC Training Ride Leader and have found that many riders could benefit from general guidelines to help them prepare and handle these kinds of rides. We’re hoping to provide some basics so riders can eliminate some of the unknowns and potential fears to help them complete rides more enjoyably and hopefully continue cycling afterwards.
The first seminar is this Saturday in Richmond Hill at Bike Sports. Tom Zielinski, the owner of Bike Sports is a previous Polish National Team member and has kindly donated his facility and time on this project. The second seminar is on February 7.
