Day 2 Camp Success!
What a crazy great weekend! Day 2 of the women's learn to race/ride skills camp was a success despite the cooler temperatures and wet conditions.
Due to weather conditions, the schedule shifted around slightly to leave the riding to the end of the day so that camp participants wouldn't be sitting around wet and cold all day long. Participants enjoyed a morning seminar on gearing and gear ratios, followed by an inspiring session of goal-setting, training journals and vision boards.
Lunch came quickly and Momma Hargrove came in with some cold salad conconctions that thrilled campers.
The afternoon saw wheels came off and hands getting dirty. Joined by Oakville Cycling Club President and camp volunteer Rob Narejko, in groups of five or so, the women took their wheels off, pretended they had flat tires and proceded to change their flat tires. This session was the last of in-class prep before the women braved the cool, wet weather and got ready for their group riding drills and skills.
A cold ride saw the women practice their shifting, climbing, group riding and communication skills.
The weekend was a success. A gallery of photos will be posted within the next couple of weeks.

Rumors were heard that a second skills camp closer to the fall might be in the works...we'll keep you posted!
A big thank you to Rob, all team members, Momma Hargrove (and helper Jeff), all our supporting sponsors, and of course, all the brave women that signed up for the camp this weekend! Thank you!!!!!!!
