WHY I RIDE WITH THE SHASTA WHEELMEN

Some people think I'm crazy and what I do for fun may seem a little off. OK I know that. But I'm a triathlete .

I completed the Half Moon Bay triathlon on April 23. By placing in the top 10% of my age group. I qualified for the USA National Championship in August. Yes I'm happy about that!

One of the reasons I ride with the Shasta Wheelmen is because this group pushes me to ride farther. Another thing I like about the club is how friendly everyone is.

A little about the Half Moon Bay Triathlon. It was what is classified as a Olympic distance race. The swim is 1500 meters, the bike is 40 kilometers, and the run 10 kilometer. Yes the water was cold. We swam in the harbor. The water was calm and I didn't see any marine life. The bike was a flat Time Trial loop and the run was a flat out and back along the bay. So the total distance traveled is about 32 miles. I plan to ride a lot with the Wheelmen this summer. Hope to see you out there.😄
