Training rides this winter

Training rides need not be just training for road racing or time trailing though of course they are excellent for that. They are also very useful training for other disciplines such as Audax, Touring and Sportive. Several members do multisport events such as Triathlon and Duathlon so as well as good training for the bike split, with a bit of planning a training ride can be combined with a run to make it a brick session.
Of course training can be simply to keep bike fit, develop the skills and discipline of rideing in a bunch and the confidence.
Whatever your cycling plans are for 2018 the club is running three training rides through the winter to help you achieve your goals ; the long standing Wednesday night chain gang, the Sunday morning training ride (longer and in daylight) and the Thursday night training ride/chain gang (at 10 2 7) which is the introductory or entry level ride.
The Sunday ride does not run every single week and all rides can be cancelled due to bad weather in the winter so it’s a good idea to check the website and the clubs facebook group before heading out.
