Join the Chain Gang as we start the training season with a very special combo event: a stretching clinic by the amazing Tony Poland, followed by a short, flat ride through the quiet roads of Griffith Park and a loop around the studios in Burbank. New to cycling, just getting to know your bike or trying out clips? We will help you learn it all!

This ride is perfect for beginners and anyone looking for a fun, easy spin in good company, and all who want to learn about stretching and keeping your body healthy throughout the training season. Tony Poland is a long-time ALCer and a phenomenal Sports & Rehab Massage Therapist, and created a stretch series specially for ALC riders – come early and learn from one of the very best!

Meeting place is Lower Crystal Springs Picnic area, down the hill from the Ranger Station and past the baseball field – look for the orange TRL vests!

NOTE: This training ride will be followed by a BBQ sponsored by AIDS/LifeCycle.

Training Ride Leaders: Doreen Gonzales, Mel Embree, Chris Eisenberg
