Kyle Byron contacted CYKL this week to update us on the nutritional success that he’s been having with Andrea, since they first started 3 weeks ago. In the past, Andrea hasn’t been able to work with a sports nutritionist and with the Ultraman pushing her to another level in terms of training, she was excited to learn that Kyle was willing to take her on as a client to help craft a nutritional plan for her Ultraman training and race!

Here’s our mini-interview with Kyle!

CYKL: Who’s Kyle Byron?

Ride like an Ultraman! On Saturday June 4th at 12pm, CYKL will host the hardest 2 hour ride you’ve ever experienced at CYKL – the Ultraman Ride. Krista will pound you in the first hour and  Andrea, our Ultraman-to-be, will be making you sweat, grunt, and push in the 2nd hour. She’ll give you a taste of what she’ll experience out on the Ultraman course this July. In CYKL fashion, a class of this magintude isn’t complete without some post-ride snacks and beverages, so we’ll be cooking up some home made pancakes and serving some delicious coffee (which is included in the price of your ride!) to keep you happy.

This sweaty, hellish ride is in support of Andrea and her journey to the Utraman. All proceeds will go to Andrea to help make her Ultraman dream a reality.

$45/rider – includes the 2 hour Ultraman Ride, 2 pancakes (1 for each sweaty hour of riding) and a coffee!

Reserve your spot now!
