Connecting over Wine, Food and Cycling
No one can argue about the challenges of this past year. But there have also been some unexpected silver linings. A renewed love for puzzles, whittling down the pile of books on our bedside table or just finding more time to focus on ourselves. These little treasures are what we will take with us from these months spent confined to our small circles.
One of the silver linings that we both agree on is finding strength, community and shared experiences through the One Peloton community. We both got our Peloton bikes in the middle of 2020 and have quickly found that the experience that Peloton offers goes far beyond the seat of the bike.
TThe Peloton community can be found in many places and we have found that there are lots of fellow wine and food lovers in the community. Whether sharing favorite wines on the Facebook Pelowinos group or finding a shared ride with members that have similar interest tags like #Pelo4Wine, there are so many ways to connect in the Peloton community.
At Clif Family, we celebrate a love of wine, food and adventure. And when we launched our Club Peloton wine club in 2012, we were excited to bring together a group of people around these shared interests. Our Club Peloton members receive wine four times a year, plus a box of CLIF Bar product in each shipment. The highlight of the membership is the annual Club Peloton Ride led by Gary Erickson and Kit Crawford. A day that includes an invigorating ride, farm to table food, delicious wines, and great conversations. And to stay connected with our community from afar, we gather virtually as #TeamClifFamily for cycling, running and happy hour events.
Since we were not able to gather for annual ride this past year, we decided to connect with our community through a virtual ride on our Peloton bikes followed by a cooking demo with Chef John.
We hope you can join us this Saturday, March 20th, 2021 at 10AM(PST) for a Clif Family inspired virtual ride via your Peloton bike or app. Following the ride, we’ll reconvene via Clif Family’s Facebook Page for a Live Re-Fueling Cooking Demo + Wine and Food Discussion with Executive Chef John McConnell and a panel of special guests. This is a complimentary event and to sign up for the ride, click HERE to receive the instructions and other information on how to join us. Registering for the ride will enter you for a chance to win a Clif Family Cycling Swag bag!
And we invite you to join our Clif Family Wine Club membership, Club Peloton. We’d be happy to answer more questions you might have, fill out this form to learn more about Club Peloton or our other Club Memberships. We are looking forward to connecting both virtually and in person this year and beyond.
