      Sometimes I may need to revise your location.  I will keep people travelling together to stay together

      As always contact me by email if anything changes on your side.

      Thank you for your support and help with this inaugural OCW event.  As of this moment we have 180 riders and are looking to add more.  This has been a 400+ rider event in years past.  But we attribute some of the downturn to this past winter rainfalls and in my area snowfall.  Training has been a struggle for the riders through this time.

4/15:  Cyclists Massage will be here:

Cyclists Massage offers sports massage specifically to cyclists. We are located in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles County, Temecula, Inland Empire, Sacramento, the Bay area, Mammoth Lakes, Phoenix, Arizona, Bend, Oregon, and Austin, Texas. Many of us are cyclists and athletes ourselves so we understand the needs of cyclists. Our massage targets and corrects your unique physical issues.

Much of our work is Event Massage with our Recovery Lounge, where we provide massage and leg compression therapy systems on single and multi-day cycling events and fundraisers, cycling tours, at cycling training camps and stage races where the cyclist is riding hard for several consecutive days. The focus is to reduce inflammation and aid in muscle recovery after a hard day of training, so the legs can be fresh and ready to hit it day after day.

We incorporate a variety of modalities into your massage session, such as Myofascial Release, Active Release Technique, Fascial Stretch Therapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Swedish massage and Traditional Thai massage to fit your needs.
