Calendar of events for Weekend Warriors
If you have a trail you would like to check out, get with Robert on a Wednesday night run and plan it out.

The best way to train is to start with Ride On Cycling's Sunday group doing 20-25 miles and work up to the Saturday group doing 40+ miles. They both start at 8:00am so plan to arrive 10 to 15 minutes before that. Remember to wear your helmet have enough water and carry all the supplies needed for changing a tire.
Temple City Bike Shop - On the first Sunday of every month the guys from the Temple City Bike Shop do an easy 25 mile ride from the Temple City Park starting at 8:00am. The address for the Temple City Park is 9751 Las Tunas Dr., Temple City, 91780 - map.
