On the #lighthousecentury yesterday, the #Swamis group of 3 that did the 100 mile ride, met up with a 14 year old named Chris who was attempting to ride his first full century alone. We met Chris at the bottom of the 46 which was the end of the climb portion of the ride - that was the extra 25 miles the full century riders did. At that point we told him to stay with us and he could have the benefit of a draft as we got back onto highway 1 and started into the headwind north. Chris was awesome, we modified our pace somewhat so we were going at a steady 18-20 mph - with Chris right there. When we went up the next slight incline he was on my wheel till we hit the top and that is when he fell back (John or Sam) realized that we had dropped him and the 3 of us made a decision to slow down and wait for him, and then keep to a little slower pace and keep him with us... we continued on, going up and down rollers and into slight headwinds with Me, Sam John and our newest Swamis member Chris - we stopped at the next 3 SAG or so stops (there were so many sag stops I can’t remember them all) to refuel and at every one people stopped and talked to Chris and assumed he was With us not just riding with us.. at the turn around we only had 37 miles to go so it was looking good for Chris - except for it wasn’t - Sam said Chris’ legs were starting to cramp. I guess he was really starting to cramp and it was getting worse, about 4-5 miles down the road after the turn around John and I noticed that Sam and Chris had stopped, Chris was trying so hard to walk out his cramps and be ok, a SAG motorcycle stopped and checked on us, Chris i want to keep on trying so we did, going slower but he was still cramping terribly so we stopped again, and he called his dad and we rode him to San Simeon where a SAG support vehicle met us and picked him up. He was so sad and disappointed to not finish but he still made it about 77 miles with 3,500 ish feet of elevation gain. His longest ride before that was 65 miles.
Today our club C.D. Sun Tri Sports was very honoured to have ex-pro cyclist Fernando Quevedo lead the cycling training. Both the tri-kids and adults really enjoyed Fernando’s stories about racing in the Tour de France and La Vuelta and his tips to become better cyclists! Thanks Fernando!
Como é bom participar do processo e ver uma criança conquistar a autonomia pra andar de bicicleta. É uma satisfação tão grande, que só quem pedala sabe o quanto isso significa.
Parabéns ao Henrique por se permitir ir além em todas as aulas, e hoje já conseguir pedalar em busca de novas paisagens.

Hoy SMART BIKE TRAINING ha impartido a nuestros infantiles una charla técnica sobre entrenamiento enfocada a su paso a la categoría de cadetes en el equipo HIPEREUROPA INFINITON. #ciclismobase#castellon#cyclingkids
Feierabend-Rennradrunde mit den Jungs: Zum einen das tolle Wetter nutzen und die letzten hellen Abende, zum anderen fehlten den Herrschaften noch ein paar Kilometer für die 1 in Sport. Für 222km im Rahmen des Leipziger @stadtradeln (innerhalb von 3 Wochen) gibt es die nämlich. Coole Aktion und noch viel cooler ist, dass die Schule der Jungs mit über 60.000 gesammelten Kilometern die Teamwertung anführt. Auf Platz 2 weit abgeschlagen die @universitaetleipzig 😁💪 Megastarke Leistung von den Lehrern und Schülern - der zweite Platz letztes Jahr hat offenbar ordentlich motiviert. Seid ihr auch mitgeradelt?
A lil bit of sunshine cycling your way !
Taking cue from our inspirational thrill filled trip down under where kids have ample of of safe space to learn and develop their cognitive, physical, social and emotional capabilities and skills. .
An extract from a study by Gindburg, K.R. et. al (2007), says "Play is so important to optimal child development that it has been recognized by the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights as a right of every child.1 .
This birthright is challenged by forces including child labor and exploitation practices, war and neighborhood violence, and the limited resources available to children living in poverty. However, even those children who are fortunate enough to have abundant available resources and who live in relative peace may not be receiving the full benefits of play. .
Many of these children are being raised in an increasingly hurried and pressured style that may limit the protective benefits they would gain from child-driven play. .
Because every child deserves the opportunity to develop to their unique potential, child advocates must consider all factors that interfere with optimal development and press for circumstances that allow each child to fully reap the advantages associated with play."
