The Barkeater Trails Alliance (BETA) is a growing, member-driven organization responsible for an ever-increasing network of trails in the High Peaks region of the Adirondack Park. BETA oversees just shy of 100 miles of world class ski and mountain bike trails, 75+ being open to mountain biking. Even better, all of these trails are sustainably-built on public lands and open to the free enjoyment of everyone. Volunteer driven; Member supported; Human powered. Join BETA here.
A coach is only as good as their resource network. When we have a client who needs the support of a professional nutritionist, my first recommendation is always Katina Sayers. Her integrated approach allows clients to combine training with weight loss, special dietary needs, or with specific challenges they may have.
High Peaks Cyclery is a big supporter of Speed Science and our athletes. If you're in Lake Placid and need something for your ride or need a repair, they are a great resource. They also have a big fleet of rental bikes. In addition to being a great bike shop, they also carry just about anything you could want for climbing, paddling, skiing, hiking, fishing and general adventuring in the mountains.
Placid Planet is one of the best stocked shops anywhere. They're a fixture in the local riding community here in Lake Placid. If you need major work done, they have a solid team of mechanics. If you're looking for a high-end demo bike, they've got it. We're lucky to have them.
Syracuse Bicycle is a strong supporter of local racing in New York. Their race team a great group of athletes and is dedicated to helping athletes learn and grow - just like us. A little known fact is that Coach Patrick used to turn wrenches there way back when he was just a bike racer and college student.
It's hard to find a more bike-obsessed team than the folks at Trek Store of New Hartford. Jason and his crew are passionate riders and big supporters of their local riding community. From putting on races to leading weekly group rides, they are all about getting more folks out there enjoying our fantastic sport.
TrainingPeaks is our platform of choice for writing, sharing and reviewing workouts. They have the most reliable and best supported system out there. In addition, their mobile app offers extremely good functionality so our athletes are able to see and update their workouts on the go. Watch for our articles to appear on the TP blog.
