Hey Denver, Stages Instructor Essentials and 3 Master Educator Master Classes on October 13-14

Stages Cycling University is proud to announce its support for the Roadless Ride to benefit Brent’s Place on Friday, October 13th, 2017 at Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club in Greenwood Village Colorado.

Join Stages Master Educators Pam Benchley, Marina Mitchell and Dennis Mellon for their Master Classes or ride with any of the other amazing instructors at Greenwood Athletic Club to support the kids of Brent’s Place.

Brent’s Place is a living facility for families with children who are receiving treatments for cancer, bone marrow or organ transplants in the Denver area. Brent’s Place provides a pristine living environment for children whose immune systems are severely compromised due to these treatments or surgeries. The Roadless Ride is a fundraiser held annually at Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club that consists of 12 one-hour Indoor Cycling classes where participants donate to ride in each class.

Reserve your bike here!

Dennis will be teaching at 8:00 am

In addition to supporting the kids of Brent’s Place, Stages Cycling University will be offering the largest certification event in its history on Saturday, October 14th also at Greenwood Athletic and Tennis Club. Join Pam, Marina, and Dennis for Stages Cycling University’s Instructor Essentials Course.

This workshop will help you get acquainted with your new Stages® bikes and power meters in this action-packed, fun-filled workshop! Learn how the simplicity of the bike, innovative features like the SprintShift™, and the information displayed on the console can elevate you, the instructor, from ‘good’ to Rock Star status!

Add simple metrics and watch as your classes engage in powerful new experiences. Walk away with tips you can implement tomorrow, as well as continued resources that you can dig into long-term to keep your classes full and your ideas fresh!

Then use the SCU app during the live training to immediately dig into the good stuff. Explore our intuitive power console, and learn to interpret the data – all while riding the only indoor bike with a power meter chosen by Tour De France cyclists for its accurate and consistent feedback. Experience the future of indoor cycling for yourself and learn what it means to say #weknowpower.
