Bring a team or find one on the spot for sprints, lead-outs and speed specific training. You’ll get a great workout and learn techniques to improve your sprints and top-end speed. Don’t be intimidated if you’ve never participated in an organized sprint practice, we’ll work through it together. Training your max speed has significant carry-over to all other aspects of your riding. Better yet, bring along that riding partner that you’ve always wanted to test head-to-head.
Improve your fitness with Cycling Training Sessions on Wednesday evenings. Each 4-week session will include an evening of speed specific training, threshold training, hill training and fast paceline practice.
