TIME FOR AN UPGRADE? CHECK YOUR GEAR.

Our wonderful Coach Lisa A. upgraded to this beautiful Cervelo road bike with the help of Rich and his team at Rocklin Endurance Sports.  Congrats Lisa! You deserve it!

Get all your gear out this week and do a few checks.  Does my bike need a quick tune up?  Are my running shoes ready to be replaced?  Where are my goggles?  Get those kayaks out and ready for the water.  

It just takes a few minutes...Be proactive with your equipment so you can have a wonderful time when you are out there in the world!
