Winter : Turbo
Our final turbo session will be on the 15th December 2016 and we will then move to a virtual turbo format. Maintaining and improving cycling fitness through winter is key to improving your race time next season. Arguably it is easier to knock at least 5 minutes of the bike, than the swim or the run.
Each week on the club website there will be a Turbo session for you to do, this will have the power and heart rate zones that you need to maintain to improve. To do this you will need to establish your functional threshold power (FTP) or heart rate (FTHR). The session will also be accessible if you do not have a heart rate monitor or power meter.
Summer : Forge Valley Cycle Track
What: Bike handling skills and some fun racing
Where: On the cycle track around the playing field at the back of Forge Valley School, Wood Lane, Sheffield, S6 5HG
When: 6pm-7pm, 2017 dates:
Session: An hour long session focusing on skills on this traffic free cycle track. Sessions will also be arranged covering transitions. Please bring your bike, helmet and cycling gear. For the transition sessions you will also need running shoes. See our Facebook Page for more details, nearer the time. These sessions are great for less experienced cyclists to build skill and ultimately speed. More experienced cyclists can also benefit from refining their skills – sometimes every second counts!
Throughout the Winter we organise social group rides as a club. Keep an eye on this website page or our Facebook page for updates. There are informal rides organised on a weekly basis by club members via the Facebook page on weekday evenings and weekends. Please see some information below about group ride etiquette.
During the Summer many of our members take part in local time trial events. The Cuckney 10 mile TT is a popular event for our members!
