TRAIL AFICIONADOS UNITE !!!
Here is a large fund raising event we’re joining this month at the Eagle Bike Park and we would love to see everyone out there with us. It’s called the STR or SWIMBA Trail Rendezvous and is happening on June 22nd from 3 PM – 9 PM. The event will feature live music, group bike rides & trail runs, games, a large vendor area with bike shops, a local running shop (guess who ), local restaurants, etc.. Sockeye will be setting up a beer garden and selling the beer they’ve brewed for us called “Trail Digger Ale” with all proceeds going to SWIMBA to help purchase a trail building machine. To learn more about SWIMBA and there massive contributions to the local trail scene, check out their website. They are also on Facebook with constant updates for all trail enthusiasts. This is going to be one dirty party you don’t want to miss!!!
The Eagle Bike Park (Eagle Sports Complex) is located on Old Horseshoe Bend Road just north of its intersection with Floating Feather Road…we often refer to it as the Velodrome.
On Thursday, May 16th at 6:00 PM, Dr. Ryan Griffeth from Performance & Rehabilitation Chiropractic will be at the Pulse Running & Fitness Shop conducting a workshop on how kinesiology tape can help prevent and treat the most common running injuries. We will be doing free demos of Spidertech kinesiology taping (while supplies last); Rocktape is available in store and you are also welcome to bring your own if you’d like some advice on how to get the most out of it. If you have tried kinesiology tape before and have not seen the benefits, this is a great opportunity for some hands on advice from one of the best local pros. Its also no coincidence that the clinic is just in time for some last minute touch ups before the Famous Potato Races next weekend.

NEW FKT Course and Contest
Its that time of year again!!! The Spring colors are taking over the foothills and the May FKT fun is under way. Because of the incredible beauty over the Watchman (trail) area during this season, the Watchman FKT & photo contest is back again this year. The run hike is a 6 mile loop along 5 Mile Gulch (creek), with ridge traversing over Watchman, and short stints on trail #6 and 3 Bears.
The “Funnest Known Time” really takes over in this contest, and while we will be rewarding the fastest mens and womens performances as usual, all entries must be submitted with a photo taken over the course. Yes, real photos do still exist and we are going to put all of them up on display in the store during the month of May. Here is all of the fine print… Continue reading
