Spring into fitness at Parker Recreation
Warm weather is right around the corner, and people’s attention is turning toward favorite outdoor activities including cycling and golf. Parker Recreation is offering several programs during the month of March that will help prepare you for the upcoming seasons.
Parker Recreation’s Two Hour Cycling Challenge got such a positive response for February that the Fitness Division scheduled three additional dates for March. During this two hour spinning class your instructor will take you on a journey simulating a ride through Colorado’s scenic high country. Riders should come early to set-up and be ready to ride the full two hours. Bring extra water and snacks, plus a towel or two! You may also want to bring an extra jersey.
