Expresso Bikes

These bikes are amazing fitness tools.  My local YMCA has several of them and I can't say enough good things about them.  They are great for cross training.  

The picture above is what you see as you sit on the bike.  There are over 30 routes and they go from basic to extreme rides.  There really is something for every fitness level.  

For a runner, it is important to have some type of cross training to do, in order to give the legs a chance to rest and recover from all that pounding we inflict on them. 

 At first I was skeptical to try them, probably because I thought they were going to either be boring or too hard.  Well, they were challenging, but there was nothing boring at all about these bikes. I have done rides in space, desert terrain, city streets, apple country, you name it I've done it, on the Expresso Bikes.  You have several choices you can pick from including, group rides, and chases, as well as all the other basic to extreme rides.  

Give them a try, you won't regret it.  Try their find a bike near you link.

Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
