THE ENDURANCE EXPERIENCE
"Great day spent with Team Joe Barr at The Endurance Experience. From the most experienced cyclist in our group to the complete novices we all learned a lot throughout the day. Bike setup, bike handling, excellent nutrition advice on what to eat in and out of the saddle and general logistics, support crews and safety were all covered.
Joe, Jill & Alan really know what they are talking about and we are all much more confident and better equipped to take on our challenge in September.”
