Spring Training Series 2020

 

 

All New Rides 

Ride Dates: April 4th - May 16th

 

 

The Spring Training Series is ideal for riders looking to get into great cycling shape for longer rides in late spring and summer.

 

What happens each week…

 

Rides take place on Saturday each week, starting Saturday April 4 and running through Saturday May 16th. Rides will pushed to Sunday in the event of bad weather.

 

"Week 0" Self Timed Ride - you will ride around Central Park four times as quickly as you can without it being unpleasant. The elapsed time will translate into your ride speed. Knowing your ride speed will make sure you pick rides that are right for you throughout the series. Brunch afterwards in Harlem to refuel and get questions answered before the start of training next week.

 

Knowing your speed is important because we ride informally – rides do not have leads and sweeps. So in the first couple weeks you'll get a sense of who is compatible with your speed and style of riding and then it's usually best to stick with that group throughout the series and "buddy-up". Though riding with a slower group is always an option if you're willing or prefer to slow down for any given ride.

 

Weeks 1-5; Training - you'll gradually build up distance (and speed) depending on your particular goal as explained below.

 

Week 6; Ride & Picnic - a more relaxed, social week with plenty of food and fun.

 

 

Ride levels explained…

 

3 Core Level of rides each week

-- Healthy Habits

-- Metric Centrury

-- Century

 

3 additional options on select weeks

-- Easy Rider

-- Multi surface

-- Hill Climbing

 

You may mix and match levels week to week – you're not tied into any particular level. 

 

"Healthy Habits" rides are geared for people who prefer to keep their ride distances in the 30 to 50 mile range. 

 

"Metric Century" rides start out at approximately 40 miles and build to 65 miles (100 kilometers) - a metric century over the course of 6 weeks.

 

"Century" rides start out at approxiately 60 miles and build up to a challenging, hilly 100 miles over the cousrs of 6 weeks.

 

"Hill Climber" rides are for people who love hills. If you're an advanced rider who wants to challenge yourself, these rides are for you.

 

"Multi-Surface" rides try to get away from cars as much as possible. Sometimes you're riding on paved back-roads and trails, other times on gravel trails, and one week you'll even do dirt roads. These rides usually require wider tires. The minimum and recommended tire sizes will be listed in the ride description.

 

"Easy Rider" rides are tailored for shorter distance riders. Max mileage is ~35 miles. Easy rider routes are available 5 of the 6 weeks, but some weeks require a MetroNorth return (see ride pages for details).

 

So lots of options for all types of riders. Sign up today.
