POUND Sampler






Tour de Pointe


Every July the Tour de France starts it run through the towns and mountains of France. At Fitness Pointe, our members got a feel of the race excitement by participating in the Tour de Pointe that was held from

July 14th through July 20th.

While attending cycling classes, members were able to form teams and experience the different stages of the race which included mountains, time trials, and sprints to the finish. In each class, members were awarded yellow, green, and red polka dot jerseys that represented their outstanding efforts at climbing, sprinting, and overall cycling. Team awards were given for the most mileage covered and overall endurance.

If you were a part of this year's activities, Thank You for making the Tour de Pointe an exciting week. If you missed this year's Tour, then it's never too early to start cycling classes and get prepared to race in next year's event. All award winners and pictures of the stages can be viewed at the Fitness Pointe activities bulletin board.



Congratulations to our

Tour De Pointe winners!
