ICI/PRO Member and Contributor Barbara Hoots was featured in her local paper the Albany Herald “From the lighting to the music to the actual cycling, it’s a total experience. No one wins in a spin class. It’s not about competition.” Hoots should know. She took a local spinning class shortly after outdoor enthusiast Johnny Goldberg (“Johnny G”) and his good friend John Baudhuin (who co-founded Mad Dogg Athletics) came up
From AccuWeather.com Chief Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi may have bad news. While cold weather is of course a part of winter, the persistent nature of colder-than-normal conditions and a lack of brief warm spells people can typically look forward to during midwinter have been unusual this season.

I realize that it take’s a special confidence to “put yourself out there” and be judged by your peers! You can find more entry videos here. Info on the Conference is here.
WOW! What an exhausting (but fun and productive) week at the IDEA fitness conference in LA. There is so much I want to share with everyone and I hope to post as much as possible over the next week or so. I’ll start with the best part, meeting some ICI/PRO members who were attending! I met Darlene Levin on Friday and we had a fun conversation until she was distracted

ICI/PRO Member Kathy Ehrlich-Scheffer shared this story with me and I felt it would be an inspiration to to others wanting to make the move to riding outdoors. Jennifer & John, Yesterday I took part in my first century, completing 80 of the 100 miles! I’m very proud of my effort, even though I didn’t end up finishing this one… I gleaned so much information by being out there on
Hey , Jennifer and I would love to hear your success stories and be able to publish them in a podcast for non-members. We’ve even come up with a bit of bribe, one of our brand new ICI/PRO hoodie sweatshirts that our fashion editor Barbara Hoots had made for us. I’m thinking this is how it will work.
