The first full week back in action here at Evviva Cycling is almost complete and we have had a great time. Full classes, lots of sweating, plenty of swearing, and most importantly, lots of laughing. Good music, bad music, tv shows, and bike racing have been the entertainment of choice, but what it really comes down to is training our bodies and minds to be stronger, fitter, and sharper! We are off to a great start!
Here we are again, folks, the rainy season. The weather has turned dark and wet, however, most of us aren’t yet ready to hang up the bike. If you’re anything like us here at Evviva, you’re never quite ready for that! But what does this mean for you? It means that we are ready for all your fall/winter training needs.
Starting in October, we are offering one class on Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30pm and two classes on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30pm and 6:45-7:45pm! Don’t worry, as classes start to fill up, we will be sure to add more classes throughout the week. So make sure you visit the Online Class Scheduler tab above and get yourself signed up soon!
Many of you have been working on honing your cyclocross skills, our Thursday night skills clinic has been great! However, now is also the time to be working on your cyclocross fitness. Think about how you feel after that first 1/4 lap. Do you feel like you have already completely drained your tank? Are you the rabbit or the dog on the chase? How about at the end of the race….are you the windshield or the bug? This is all related to your fitness!
Intervals, intervals, intervals! They are awful, they hurt, the do not feel good….but they are a necessary element of your cyclocross training. If you are not doing intervals, you are already behind!
Come see us on Wednesday evenings from 5:30-6:30 pm where we will be executing vo2 max intervals and tabata intervals. These will hurt, but the physiologic gains you get from the efforts will ultimately take you to the next level in your racing!
Here we are again, folks! Summer is wrapping up nicely and these dog days won’t last long. As many of you know, Luke Demoe and his wife, Senna, have moved on towards their next adventure in life. They are settling nicely into a wonderful little place up in Bellingham, WA. Senna starts teaching at Western Washington University this coming fall term and Luke is now working at a great bike shop called Fanatik Bike Co.
With Evviva is under new managent, and all of us missing Luke dearly, I hope to usher you all into the rapidly approaching fall/winter season as smoothly as possible!
Our fall schedule will be finalized shortly and I will post the update soon. Right now it’s looking like we will have Monday and Thursday classes from 5:30 to 6:30 pm with more classes added on other days as the weather turns and the need arises.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all this fall sweating and swearing while pushing yourself to all new levels of fitness! Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or friend me on Facebook and hit me up with any questions.

We are gearing up for another great season at Evviva Cycling. We have added some new “drop-in” sessions as well as a Punch card promo. Train smarter, and harder. Check out the schedule and pricing tabs above.
The towel-whipping crazy man is John. He is a regular at the Tuesday/Thursday evening class. I chose this photo for the cover because it represents what Evviva Cycling is all about. FUN! You would not know it from the photo with all the smiles, but these two classes are the toughest we have to offer. Come down and try an evening mid-week ride. You wont be disappointed.
