Yakima’s Brianna Walle | Advice for Aspiring Roadies

Date November 12, 2012

This is the third and last post in the Brianna Walle series (the first two were on how she got into racing and training).

And perhaps the most important.

When asked if she had any advice for other folks who are interested in bike racing, here’s what she said:

Life is too short, so why not?!

Most local bike shops sponsor or coordinate group rides. They can be weekend or mid-week. Some shops might have resources for 101 racing clinics and local races.

I suggest getting in touch with a group and just have fun! See where it brings you.

Always remember to have FUN, because when you do, you actually go faster! This is a FACT.

Stay tuned for more updates from Brianna as she works towards her pro career!
