APRIL “GRIT TALKS”

Grit Talks are weekly Wednesday night shop “chats” designed to give you a place to come learn and ask questions in a fun and non-intimidating environment. We have Grit Talks for everyone ranging from the most beginner athletes looking to learn the basics to more seasoned athletes wanting to take their knowledge to the next level.  Take a look at our schedule, pick a Grit Talk that looks fun, and come enjoy your beverage of your choice on us.

Demystifying the Triathlon, April 16th at 7pm 

  • What’s a triathlon?
  • Me in a wetsuit, no way!
  • T1 and T2, what’s that?
  • What race is right for me?
  • Swim, bike, then run..no way!
  • What gear do I actually need?
  • But I’m not a runner?

Let us demystify the triathlon for you. EVERYONE can do a triathlon with the right tools and a little grit. We will teach you everything you need to know to go from spectator to finisher, and have a ton of fun along the way! 

On the Road Again, April 23rd at 7pm

  • Why do clip-less pedals have clips?
  • How do I choose the right saddle?
  • What clothes should I wear?
  • Where can I find an awesome riding group?

We will answer all your road biking questions. We will give you the tools to you need to confidently get out on the road this year. And, we will share our personal stories just so you know that clip-less pedal malfunction and bad clothing choices are just a right of biking passage.

Fix-a-Flat, Fix-a-Fun, April 30th at 7pm

  • Is your idea of a flat change to pull out your cell phone and call your closest friend?
  • Is one of your greatest fears in life taking off your rear wheel?
  • Do your eyes glaze over when people talk about derailleurs and gears?

Learn about basic bike repairs that you can do at home or on the road. Whether you have never changed a tire before or want to be able to do it with more ease, this chat is for you.
