Turbo Training
Leader:
Phil Ward
Start Time:
7:00 pm
Start Location:
OMH
Description:
As another fantastic outdoor season draws to a close you may be turning your thoughts to how you can maintain, or at least not lose all, the cycle fitness you have built up over the spring and summer. Well look no further than indoor winter turbo training.

What do you need?

A bicycle, a turbo trainer - a device that enables you to ride your bike, stationary, indoors. Turbo trainers, or turbos as they are commonly known, clamp around the quick release skewer of a bike’s rear wheel suspending it in an A-frame. The club has 2 turbos that can be loaned to members.

Where and When do they take place?

Dixon Suite in Old Mill Hall. 10 sessions from Wednesday 5th October to Wednesday 14th December inclusive (NB No session Wednesday 9th November).

What are the sessions like?

Run by club ride leaders, rather like a spin class, with music and an hour long routine which involves a warm up, a series of intervals focusing on sprinting or climbing with rest periods in between, then always close with a warm down.

Is there a club star (*) rating?

No. The beauty of turbo training is that you work as hard as you feel you are able. In this way, all riders, regardless of how strong they are, can ride and train together.

What does it cost?

We ask for a small donation to cover the cost of hiring a room - last year this was 20 for 10 sessions for those riders signed up for all 10 sessions. If you would rather drop in for one of two sessions we ask for a donation of 4 per session.

What to do next.

Report:
A terrific effort by the assembled posse. (clap) Great to see such commitment in completing the intervals as planned - well done.
Hopefully the legs won't be too sore tomorrow, but a little stretching or a light recovery ride would help in that respect.
