These Tuesday morning rides are meant to increase a cyclist’s strength required for hill climbing and wind. Why 1000? Our goal will be to get 1000m of climbing during one of the August rides.
A combination of shorter steeper climbs in the river valley along with longer rides near Devon will provide variety and cover a number of different hill climbing strategies. This ride is a perfect compliment to the Stamina Builder series in developing another component of cycling fitness.
Some rides will involve river valley loops aiming to ride those short and steep hills and sometimes we will favour a hill to go up and down (yes those infamous hill reps!). We will always be on paved paths/roads. Number of participants will be capped at 12 for safety. Road bike recommended. No ebikes please. After all it’s about the burn!
