Huge congratulations to the winners of the EP Clarke spring mileage club competition. This is an awesome program that EP Clarke elementary school is running to help their students be more active in their lives.
Tri-ing For Life donated a Vivofit Jr. for the winners of each grade level hoping to really motivate the children to not just get active, but shoot for a huge goal so they could win something awesome. Last Friday I was amazed by the results from these amazing children and some of the stories I heard from their parents.
Some program stats:
– Students completed 4,149 miles, they could have walked to Brazil
– 2,390 of those miles were in the 7 wk season 2 which was 2 weeks shorter than season one, that’s more than half in less weeks.
– 349 students participated
– EP Clarke ranked in the top 13% of more than 8,000 schools nation wide which participated
Those are amazing results, huge shout out Tiffany Woods and all the volunteers who have made this program possible.
One parent told me how much more energy his daughter had while participating. His daughter completed 30 miles in season 2 compared to 5 miles in season 1. She came home one day and told her dad she wanted to win a Vivofit Jr. and she made it. These are the stories that make me do what I do.

Time for you to get a bike fit? Myth: Most people assume a bike fit is ONLY for elite cyclists and triathletes to give them the competitive edge.Fact: A bike fit is for anyone who as a bike who is looking to ride with greater comfort, greater efficiency and increased speed. If you have a bike that you like to get out an ride, but you start feeling uncomfortable after 20 or 30 minutes then a bike fit is also for you. If you’re a triathlete or a cyclist and you’re looking for increased comfort and efficiency then a bike fit is for you as well.
At Tri-ing For Life we take fitting seriously so we hired Craig Watson from Bikes, Bikes, Bikes to come in and teach us all the in’s and out’s of bike fitting. Tri-ing For Life specializes in Triathlon and Road bike fitting, but we can also perform bike fits on Mountain and Hybrid bikes. We take so much pride in our attention to detail that each bike fit will last 2 to 4 hours depending on the type of bike and the amount of adjustments required. We sweat all the minor details of the fit so you don’t have to sweat it out in pain later.
Tri-ing For Life carries ISM and Profile Design seats to help increase your comfort on the bike through your sit bones, you can try the seat before you purchase with our Demo Seat program. The sit bone is the most intimate and important connection point to your bike, we’ll take the time to help you find the right seat for you.
Schedule an appointment today for your fit or email email@example.com to get more information.
If you have a group that you’re affiliated with and you would be interested in a presentation on bike fit, how’s it done and the importance of each of the contact points reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set-up a time that works for your group.
