JCLTeam's mission is to spark fitness in Washington Heights and Inwood's Spanish speaking community. Using surrounding parks, trails and greenways, we train families in reaping the benefits of walking, running and cycling, and as a result, reduce the lack of physical activty as a risk behavior for many chronic diseases.
JCLTeam currently runs a free family walking program in Spanish from Tread Bike Shop (250 Dyckman) every Tuesday @ 5:30 PM and Saturday @ 9:30 AM.
Beginner cycling program currently meets Sundays and must register for classes or RSVP to join group rides. For more info please inquire @ firstname.lastname@example.org, attn: Lina Gonzalez.
