The other day I attended a free workshop at Bicycle Sports Shop in South Austin. The instructor, Gioconda, was amazing! The place was so full that many of us had to lay our mats outside the classroom area. For us first timers, we got a free mat and a great experience. There is nothing to fear, Gioconda is so easy to follow. She invited us closer so that we could see better how to perform certain stretches and really counter the effects of being on the bike for hours and hours. I recommend her classes to anyone.
I need to keep this up.
