Night Riders- Tuesday night (non daylight savings)
Night riders is a session for anybody looking to climb hills with ease. In this session we cover a variety of different methods of training to help you improve your climbing. Early in the autumn we work on building Strength Endurance by conducting longer hill efforts, later in the winter we sharpen up our new strength with shorter sharper anaerobic efforts. This is sure to improve your climbing ability, as well as your general strength on a bike.
Where: We have two start point’s. If your looking to get some good weekday km’s in we meet at Cyclery Northside at 6pm on Tuesday’s for a gentle ride up to Bobbin Head. For those who are short on time, or just wanting to do a few hill reps, meet at 6.45pm on the south entry box to Bobbin Head.
