For the past few years I have been hearing about how great Naples, Florida is for ElliptiGO riders. Candidly, I hadn’t really paid much attention to those comments because a lot of people tell me that their city is “the number one bike city in America” or “the absolute perfect place for ElliptiGOs.”
The good news is, I have a lot more appreciation for how winter can throw a wrench in a training plan. I also have a ton more respect for the folks that are out there riding in the cold. That’s a gutsy move! Not riding for almost a month because of the cold is a tough way to learn about the impacts of winter, but I’m glad I have really internalized it now.
As the Marine Corps Birthday and Veterans Day approach this year, I am thankful to be a Veteran and particularly proud to be a Marine Veteran. I am also humbled by those who have sacrificed much more than I was ever asked to as a Marine, whether that was serving in combat, being on the front lines of the civil rights movement, surviving the Holocaust, or being a first responder in a time of crisis.
Get Out and GO 2018 (GOGO) is a challenge program modeled after ElliptiGO’s previous “Get on the Map.” 2017’s inaugural edition of GOGO was a rousing success. GOGO 2018 runs from March 1 through October 31, 2018.
Following the spirit of Sir Edmund Hillary, Bruno Pollet set off in July to be the first person to climb the Col du Tourmalet on an ElliptiGO Arc. “I asked myself, ‘Why not test the Arc on it?’ I thought it would be quite the challenge.”
