the week: "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every
experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You
are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can
take the next thing that comes along' . . . You must do the thing
you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt

|BOSTON - (July 11, 2007) Olympian and World Champion, Alison Dunlap, returns to New England this weekend to literally set up camp at Pedro's Mountain Bike Festival in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. Dunlap and the Boston LUNA Chix Cycling Team will arrive at the Festival on Friday to pitch tents, light the grill and settle in for a weekend of single-track riding with several thousand of their closest mountain biking friends. The Berkshires' reputation for "go-to" mountain biking will get a leg up on Saturday and Sunday when Dunlap hosts clinics for Festival participants to sharpen their skills, learn new ones, or just come away with the right to brag about riding with an Olympian and world mountain bike champion.

I recently tried the new LUNA Moons on a group ride. Right away I noticed the size of the package and how easily it fit in the back pocket of my jersey. The pack of pomegranate Moons I tried were a modest 100 calories and 6 to a pack, which equals 1 serving -
sport for ladies,
Moons are smaller and easier to handle than their Shot Blox kin. They have a nice - sweet but not not too sweet - fruity punch and a firm texture that made my mouth happy. I followed them with some water and set out for a 30-mile ride. At the half-way mark, I finished the pack. I found that one pack of Moons helped me maintain enough energy for a leisurely ride. It’s also pretty cool that Moons contain Vitamin C and that they gel with pectin rather than gelatin. Moons currently come in three flavors: pomegranate, blueberry and watermelon and sell for only $1.29 at your local bike shop!
