Century Cycling Classes at the Huntington YMCA

Century Cycling Class - Huntington YMCA - Jan. 15 thru March 26 2017 - Sundays @ 3:30 to 5:00 PM - May Building Spin Studio - UPDATE - YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF HUNTINGTON Y TO TAKE THIS CLASS! Sorry about that but due to high demand NO GUEST WILL BE ALLOWED! Did you sign up for the Kentucky Century Challenge? Here's your chance to get ready for it even when the weather says no! AJ Bryant will be leading a class every Sunday in Jan., Feb & March aimed at helping riders get ready for the spring outdoor riding season, something we can all use I'm sure. Class will be every Sunday at 3:30 for 90 minutes at the May building in Huntington, if you're already a Y member all you have to do is show up and ride. Not a Y member, there's a cure for that too. They are offering a special rate for ACE members that not only allows you to attend this class but will give you access to everything the Y has to offer. In other words, it's a full membership at a discount rate. Here's what they have to offer:

Here's the kicker, if 6 ACE members join before Jan. 11 they will add another Century Cycling Class during the week! The YMCA offers a LOT more than spin, check out everything they offer at their website, LOTS of core strength classes offered....yoga, TRX, weights, boot camp to name just a few. Not a member of ACE? Here's another reason to pay your dues today. For the most up to date schedule of events download their app, their website shows the features available to all Y members. Now for the "bad" news.....in the past they allowed guest to pay $10 and enter after signing in to the class register. Due to safety & security concerns guest must sign in and be accompanied by a Y member, no exceptions, it's a sign of the times we live in I'm afraid. Don't forget, YOU MUST BE A MEMBER OF ACE TO RECEIVE THESE SPECIAL RATES, just like Santa we'll be watching! It's time to train those legs and INCREASE YOUR CORE during the cold months.....see you there!l

ACE 2015 Mission

Dear ACE, As you may have seen....my mission for our group is simple....MORE RIDES>>>>MORE RIDERS. That is why we had ride leader training. That is why we aren't meeting monthly. We should be riding every opportunity our group can get. The more rides we can offer, the greater the opportunity for others to join us and get in shape. The goal....LOWER OBESITY. Then after kicking OBESITY, we will go after overweight! Let's make a commitment to each other on these goals. Be supportive and encouraging. Share our rides. Offer challenges. And don't forget the great advice of Michael Stratton that you can't outride a fork. Have great rides this Saturday ACE. I hope to see many rides posted and taking place. We hope to begin having our outings at the local bike shops soon. More information to come. Let's ride....
