Berkeley’s Bicycle Boulevards are a treasure. The encouragement that I feel each day for riding a bicycle to my destination is immense and made so simple! Seeing so many cyclists efficiently using our roads, bike paths, and bicycle boulevards pushes me to bike whenever I have the chance.
As I make the transition from four wheels to two, I wonder: are we taking proper care of our bodies after long days on our bikes filled with running errands, getting to work and commuting to yoga class? With a vehicle, it is crucial that we change the oil, pump up the tires, check the engine frequently, etc. Of course we maintain our bicycles and pump the wheels of our tires, but what about checking in with the main engine – our bodies. Taking care of that vehicle when we are using it as a vehicle can sometimes fall to the wayside.
That is why I am inspiring all of my cyclist friends to try out Bridget Frederick’s Workshop Yoga for Cyclists.
I caught up with a few ladies that joined Bridget for her short cyclist class at our Open House, and here is what they had to say:
“After a long ride, knowing the right areas to stretch is invaluable and will keep you healthy and out on the road. Bridget is a great resource for athletes to integrate yoga practice into daily training. It really helped get out some of the aches and pains in my back and hamstrings.”
