Come, relax and enjoy the ride!

I am excited to open my own cycling studio, Sol Pedal. To be doing what I love and have loved for the past 6 years is a blessing. Many of you have ridden many miles with me, so come back and lets travel together. Time flies as we cycle to an eclectic mix of music. I created the studio to be funky and fun, a place where you feel surrounded by happy, healthy energy.

So join the Ride. Its the only hour of your day that you can completely get away. We sweat, sing along, push each other and have a blast. Sure it's exercise, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun! After all, life is what you make it!

The holidays can be one big fat trap. But before you steer clear of the dessert table, take a look at the who knew health benefits of these seasonal treats.

Pecan Pie - Research shows that pecans have the most antioxidants of any nuts, including almonds. As a bonus, they are loaded with cholesterol-lowering plant sterols and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.

Pumpkin cheesecake - A half cup of canned pumpkin contains more than 350 percent of your recommended daily value of vitamin A, and immune-boosting nutrient. Plus, pumpkin has high levels of carotenoids, the pigments responsible for its bright orange color, which studies suggest may neutralize free radicals in your body, helping prevent disease.

Gingerbread - A natural anti-inflammatory. Ginger can reduce exercise related muscle pain. The potent spice also aids in digestion, which makes gingerbread a perfect finish to a big holiday meal.
