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!

"Stretching out your back helps reduce back pain, but it can work against you if you do it first thing in the morning. 'At night when you sleep, the discs in your spine gain water,' says Ted Dreisinger, PhD, FACSM, president of Therapy Advisors, San Diego, CA. This adds pressure on your discs when you first wake up, which causes more stress to them when you bend forward or bend backward.

Do this instead: Before you stretch in the morning, take 10 minutes to with your usual routine: drink coffee, wash your face and brush your teeth. After that, perform a simple stretch: put your hands on the top of your buttocks (palms to skin), as if you were putting your hands in your back pockets, then lean back, looking up and holding for about three seconds. Repeat three to four times."
