Spring training. Those words arouse visions of team regalia, muddy cleats, eating peanuts, and watching America’s national sport. For cyclists, those words may conjure other images — assuredly the muddy cleats and team regalia, and certainly mountains of food. And, stretching it, even the sitting and watching, from a bicycle saddle, as the marvelous world scrolls by under your pedals. Spring training takes on as many meanings as there are riders. Texas bluebonnets and Lone Star beer. Salt water taffy, shipwrecks, and barrier islands. Jambalaya, Zydeco, and beignets slathered in honey; oh yeah, cycling is all about the food, the company, and the culture.
Start your spring training today and join us on tour for all the fun.
