Members of Allison Ramadge’s studio cycling class – including Norm Roth of Los Altos, right – participate in her Tour de France-inspired summer session on a recent Saturday morning at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center in Palo Alto.

For the students in Allison Ramadge’s studio cycling class, the closest they likely will get to the Tour de France is a bike vacation in the Loire Valley.

Yet that doesn’t stop them from filing in to an exercise room at the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center on summer mornings to race across France, all without leaving Silicon Valley.

Los Altos athletic director Michelle Bokamper Noeth is a Miami Dolphins fan; her uncle, Kim Bokamper, played for the team.

Los Altos High’s new athletic director has found an effective way to connect with coaches – through their stomachs.

Armed with coffee and bagels, Michelle Bokamper Noeth invited all of the school’s coaches to stop by her office the morning of July 12 to get acquainted. While she wasn’t sure how many coaches would pop in, because it’s summertime, Noeth was pleased with the turnout.
