As you’re mentally preparing on on a strategy to capture this season’s fitness while growing a strong foundation for next season, here’s an overview of how we’ll help you do just that. Contact. Consult. Commit!

ENDURANCE: Focus on good riding technique(s). Building endurance to lay the groundwork for higher intensity training.

BUILDING UP: Get ready for high-end efforts. Target an increase of your VO2 max and your ability to recover from repeated high-end efforts.
HIGH CADENCE: Improve your ability to spin at a higher cadence and to enhance your aerobic endurance.

CADENCE INTERVALS: Achieve a turnover of a relatively small gear during your intervals. Prolong you time to muscular fatigue while relying more your aerobic system to do the work.

ANAEROBIC THRESHOLD: Developing a higher lactate threshold (LT) is a primary area of developmental focus for all cyclists. It is the best predictor of performance for many cycling events. Lactate threshold is the highest intensity that a fit cyclist can maintain before exhaustion.

GROUP RIDE: Improve your cardiovascular fitness, burn calories, shape and strengthen your lower body, and have fun while doing it! Since you control the intensity of the workout by adjusting your own output, it’s a great workout for all abilities, whether you are just starting out or you are an avid cyclist looking to train indoors. It’s also a great option to add to your other workouts.
