    Spin Classes At IBC
    Participants set up their own bikes and wind trainers and are guided through a 1.5-hour class developed to improve all levels of cyclists, from beginners to elites.  Each class will include drills, interval training and time trials.  BTT members get a 20% discount on the price of classes.  Please contact BTT'er Jay Marschall for more information.

    XC Skiing
    Once there's snow on the ground, BTT'ers tend to make the transition from biking to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.  We will once again have the XC Links page on the team website but are also looking for members to "lead the charge" to organize specific training/social outings.  If you are interested in these types of activities, please post on the bulletin board to get the dialogue going.

    2004 Team Events
    Yes, it's early to start to think about 2004 events, but the EC is hard at work trying to lay the ground work for another successful season in the new year.  We are in the planning stages for the New Member Party for January, the Kick-Off Party in late January, the Training Weekend for May and plenty of other great events throughout the season.  If you are interested in helping to plan any of these events or have suggestions for new events, please contact Pete Cadwell for more information

    Race Reports
    We've had so many race reports written in 2003 and are looking for more!  The feedback that we receive from members reading these reports are fabulous, so if you do a race, or are even just watching a race and want to let us know about it, please take the time to do a small (or lengthy) write-up to be posted for all to see.  Check out the latest reports from Liz Hale.
