Hey all, Just a reminder that our new Introduction to Mountain Biking classes start at Parkersburg's YMCA on January 6th. They will run for 3 weeks and then the Intermediate class will run for 5 weeks. Call the Y at (304)485-5585 for details. These are great classes and will help you train for the Adventure Pursuit Triathlon, as will our kayaking classes, which are also being taught at the YMCA. See you on the river! See you on the trails.
