Training Tip: 
GET SADDLE Time! Nothing makes one's butt not hurt better than time on the saddle. Even if it's a short ride, take advantage of it, every little bit helps. 
Share your story!
One of the easiest ways to share your journey with Team Resilience is to share your training on social media! Post a photo of you on your ride and add your fundraising page and why you are riding for Team Resilience. 

Training Tip:
 Every season, getting "back in the saddle" has a period of discomfort. Legs, arms, and, oh my BUTT! You already know that legs just need conditioning, but here is the secret...butts do too.
​Ride with bike shorts. Bicycling is not running, and it begs for a pad on your seat. Bike shorts with a nice synthetic pad that is hydrophobic, and ideally contains some closed cell foam inside, helps tremendously. They make for a much nicer ride. If you are unsure which brand to go with, reach out to TeamHFA@hemophilifed.org with questions!
