| Do you facebook?
I personally have avoided the social media avalanche that has been consuming so many of the people we love as it rumbles down the slope of life. I did this by sticking with phone and email. Well, a cornice had grown above me, and as I was writing an email, staring down at the keyboard, I was blindsided by this noise of "you have to do facebook, it will be great for your business". While covered in several feet of wall photos, status updates and 'liking' various pages, I realized that my beacon to be found and pulled up to the surface was to give in and read a news feed, reach out to old acquaintances and create a page for the Optimize Endurance Services/BikeSource mountain bike team.
It's coming up on a month now and I have struggled several times to catch my breath and enjoy the sunlight being cast on me in the form of people accepting my friend request and adding the team page to their life. I hope I will find a balance with this new found communication tool that so many of my fellow friends have made such a big part of their lives.
Please check out the team page by using the link above and follow us as we ride kicking and screaming into the future. The page will update you on team rides, team results and give you access to our great sponsors.

OES Training Plans are designed specifically for Ride The Rockies and offer access to a coach. Built for beginner to experienced riders the plans work with your ability and time to train. OES provides these plans via Training Peaks, an on-line interface for coach and client with download capabilities and nutrition tracking. Plans include periodized training, recovery weeks with benchmark tests, a complete strength training plan and a coupon for a lactate threshold test.
