Training Events

Opting In To The Middle & Back Of Pack (MBOP) Group

We want to create an environment where more people feel comfortable in attending group trainings. In order to make group training more accessible to slow to moderate paced athletes we are looking for a volunteers to coordinate one time rides or runs. The responsibility of the lead will include selecting the route, organizing the group meet up, providing the necessary information about the specific ride/run route, arranging a sweeper, and, of course, creating a group training atmosphere.

If you’re interested in coordinating an event or just want more information, then please contact Joyce Jones at community@dctriclub.org.
