Level ALL are welcome. Meet at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, 500 West Willow Grove Ave, Chestnut Hill. Meet in the Haber Room, on the first floor of Wissahickon Hall. The ride leaves at 6:00 pm. Special evening for BCP and SCU members, geared (no pun intended) to help us overcome the winter blahs and to get ready for the return of cycling this spring, just around the corner. A physical therapist, a bicycle fit expert, a sports performance psychologist, and a sports nutritionist will be sharing their expertise with us, re. how to prevent pain from interfering with your cycling & fitness program, how to prevent winter weight gain, how to make 2015 your best, most memorable and satisfying year of cycling ever, etc. Refreshments will be served, and we'll have raffle prizes to give away. Doors open at 6:00pm for socializing and refreshments, and the program begins at 6:30pm. Wissahickon Hall is the large, stately, gray stone building directly across the street from the tennis courts of Philadelphia Cricket Club. Event details are posted on the right-hand side of this website's home page, under "Events". VOLUNTEERS APPRECIATED: If you are able to help at this event either with set-up (arriving ~5:00-5:15), or with clean-up (after the program), please contact Linda McGrane. THANK YOU for volunteering!
