March 22: (Thurs) 7:00-8:00pm – The Ins and Outs of a Bike Fit: Riding your bike, whether it’s one hour or 12 hours, requires you to sit on the saddle and generate power to your pedals.

**The Winter Training Series (WTR) is organized by Rapha Cycle Club SF and begins Jan 14th and takes place every Sunday during January and February. It is a structured, long, winter training series on the road. The ride leaves Rapha Cycle Club SF rain or shine, and while the ride is intended to stay together, some riders may fall off the back given pace or mechanicals. The group will move at a smooth but steady clip in the longstanding tradition of winter base rides: no sharp accelerations but no strolling, either
