We mourn the loss of our friend and team member and longtime North Country athlete and coach Scott Woodward, 1955-2016.

Thank you for visiting the Team Placid Planet Web site.  We come from all walks of life, and our orbit revolves around common interests (obsessions for some) in cycling and triathlons. We ride and train primarily in the High Peaks Region of the Adirondacks and can’t complain about the scenery. Our team’s galaxy consists of the following guiding principles:

  • be safe
  • promote good sportsmanship and fair play
  • race like there’s no tomorrow
  • raise awareness/elicit enthusiasm
  • train smart/maximize athletic potential
  • serve as ambassadors for visitors to the region
