To the folks behind the scenes, thanks!

As you can imagine having a cycling team takes a lot of support. We here at Dynamic Physical Therapy Cycling have had a pretty exciting and successful year so far, and we are not even half way through cross season yet. I wanted to take a second to thank some of the local businesses that help support cycling. Please let them know that their support is appreciated by also supporting them and their services!

Afraid of going to the dentist? I know I was a few years back. Then out of necessity of needing a root canal I visited Mike Miller D.D.S. Lets just say I left the place shocked at how excellent he was at his job. This year I again had to make a visit to Dr. Miller's office and he even let me blog about it and he took pics. Read about the visit. Even if Dr. Miller was not a team sponsor I would still highly recommend him. His pain free approach and professionalism as a dentist is really refreshing, not to mention he has gotten a reputation as the "Dentist to the Cyclist" Thanks, Dr. Miller.

People often ask us, how should I train or am I doing this correctly? Sometimes it is hard to answer questions like that because every athlete is different and that is why we always suggest getting a coach if you want to reach your full potential on the bike. We at the Dynamic Physical Therapy Cycling Team count on Performance Coaching Services to help us make the right choices in our training regiment.

Performance Coaching Services is owned and operated by former Professional cyclist Rob Acciavatti. In 1995 at the age of 21, Rob turned professional and raced with the Scott-BiKyle-Flyers based out of Allentown, Pennsylvania. He spent the following two seasons in Europe racing with Kaiku, a semi-pro team from the Basque country in northern Spain. In 1998 he decided to leave competitive cycling and return to college to pursue a degree in physical therapy. Unable to stay away from racing, Rob returned for the 2000 season and began to coach and race with the West Virginia University Cycling Team. In WVU's first appearance at the National Championships Rob won two individual national titles in the criterium and omnium.

Rob and Performance Coaching Services offers bicycle fit and positioning evaluation, cycling specific strength training program as well as 3 different levels of coaching to help you obtain your goals.

Feel free to contact him and make sure you tell him we sent ya.

And when we need bikes, bike parts and pretty much any kind of outdoor gear where do we go? Pathfinder of course!
Not only do they have the best selection of outdoor equipment and products in the state of West Virginia, but they have been around for what seems like forever and can answer just about any question when it comes to your outdoor needs.
Pathfinder originally opened in Morgantown in 1973 just over on Wiley Street, just a few blocks from our current High Street location. Visit them today, you will not be disappointed.

Please support the companies that support the sport we all love so much!
