What’s UP (get it?) May 2-4

Kayakers looking for water | Peak Experiences

There was an ocean somewhere down there.

Look, I still need a better name for this, okay? I can only do so much.  But hey, happy Friday! It’s nice out (looks like the rain paused for a minute) and there’s tons of excitement coming up this weekend.

The James River is currently (at 9am on Friday) around 13.2 feet. That’s huge.  You need a permit to be on the water and you should seriously evaluate your skill in a boat before going out there. But if you do go, have fun and be safe!

If you want to climb, Peak is open its normal hours, with Open Climb rocking from 11-4 Saturdays and Sundays.

Peak News

The USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals are in town this weekend.  This is an exciting preview of the excitement next year, when the Road World Championships will be held in town.  It also means there are a handful of road closures, especially around the city.  If you’re going anywhere in the city this weekend, check out the road closures map to make sure you get there on time!

We launched a new feature this week – Wellness Wednesdays (how’s that for a catch title?) This week we discussed what to do about elbow pain, but there are so many other things you’ve been wondering about.  Is there a body part you’re not sure how to make more flexible?  Have you been wondering about the benefits of yoga, massage, acupuncture, or something else? Ask us – we’ll do the digging and tell you on a Wednesday to be determined at a later date.
