Don't miss this opportunity to improve your cycling skills by attending the Education Symposiums offered by our very own Wig Sy. This is a quarterly series that builds up on one another so please do not miss any part of the series.
A collection of questions and answers from past and current cyclists that Wig has coached and trained using the most current scientific data and hearsay. A mandatory attendance is required for all members wishing to understand why they stink... odorous or performance wise. Learn how to get better by riding slower, how to be faster by resting more, how to be healthier by exercising less.
Come and ask Wig any questions you might have.
