On Monday-November 14th, you will be lucky enough to experience a front row seat to the largest Super Moon since 1948! A Super Moon or Perigee Moon appears to balloon up to 14% larger than an Apogee full Moon (traditional moon) and beams up 30% brighter!

November 25th, 2034 will be your next opportunity to witness this spectacular gift of nature, so be sure to savor this moment. The best way to see this interstellar stunner is in a dark, open area, but, if you would like to add some bigger then life illusions to your experience, catch the moon as it rises along the horizon! It will appear even more magnificent!

The moons’ peak will be at 6:52 am on Monday morning, not to worry, that does not mean that it won’t be brilliant that evening, you might even need to wear your sunglasses!

Moondance anyone….?

Vail Vitality Center’s Four-Week Road Ready Cycling Program, led by Jennifer Sage begins on Thursday April 21, 2016. This is the final session, Jennifer will prepare you for outdoor riding by spending a little more time at a threshold for longer intervals, and do shorter intervals above that. This class will definitely help you get ready for the steep climbs around Vail, both on the pavement and singletrack.

The training is designed to improve your body’s capability to sustain energy longer during your rides. Ride faster, reduce your fatigue, use the correct energy stores, increase your power and prepare for your bucket-list cycling events, all while having more fun on your bike.
