I would like to recognize and thank the Alta Alpina Cycling Club for all they do for the Junior Cycling Team. I have enjoyed participating in the Thursday night road races, weekly training rides for mountain and road bikes, and the use of cycling equipment. I would like to thank Di Bolton for volunteering her time as the club’s road race director. I also want to thank our coach, Mel Maalouf, for all the time and expertise he gives to the team. Over Labor Day weekend, Coach Mel took us to San Jose to celebrate the end of our season. We were able to race on a velodrome track (banked, oval track racing bikes without brakes), and take several long training rides along the coast. This club has made a positive impact on my life. I found a sport/hobby that I love and have also made many new friends. The adults are encouraging, and the races are always friendly, but competitive. I have also become a stronger and more strategic rider. If you are a member of the Alta Alpina Cycling Club, thank for everything you have done and given to the junior team.
