The Brotherhood

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Been too long since the last update. Straight to it.

Only 83 days until the first Tuesday Night Ride of 2012!

If you are part of the Capital Fund Title Cycling Team, please join the blog! Sign up, be a part of it! Please, numbers help with sponsorship and recruitment, please become a member!

The capital Fund Title team roster blew past fifty members early in December and then past sixty. The current head count is an impressive sixty-two members.

Kits – ‘short-term pain for long-term gain’ – we are still in the creative phase of kit development but the Board is pushing hard to get this order cycle process complete so we have our kits long before it will be warm enough to wear them or we will be able to race in them. It may seem a bit painful right now, but when they are done based on all the renderings we have seen we hope you will agree we will have one of the most unique and clean looking kits in the State or anywhere.

Thank you for buying into the vision – Most of you have already ordered an ‘alternative jersey,’ If you have not please do. As we have mentioned we plan to emphasis racing tactics and having two jerseys (a light and dark) will enable us to create many race like situations on our beloved Tuesday Night Ride. One of my mentors once told me ‘anyone can train to be within 5% of the fitness of a Tour athlete’ but being able to impress someone with long pulls and high watts does not mean you know how to race your bike. At the very least, if you are racing and thus getting a kit for being on the team, please, please order that second jersey.

Spinning – don’t forget the great opportunity to spin for free with your team and anyone else who wants to join at the Foster Community Center; Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

Until next time
