Wednesday Night Road Rides at Cyclova XC Starting Wed. April 10, 2013

Wednesday night road rides at Cyclova XC are both fun and challenging - and for all levels of road riders!

That's right folks, the Wednesday rides are back on starting tomorrow (April 10th), and continuing until further notice. Please join us at the shop at 6 PM for a fantastic workout!

Here's the original post for more details:

We've been doing road bike sprint rides for decades - and when done right, we've realized that they can be both fun and challenging for all levels of road riders - from seasoned elites through beginners!  This is our goal with the Cyclova XC Wednesday night sprint ride!

The Cyclova XC Group Sprint Road Ride is a carefully engineered affair - with the goal of being INCLUSIVE to all road riders.  Following are the basics of the ride:
  • We have a great 28.9 mile generally undulating course. Click HERE for an interactive map & details.  Click HERE for a nice printable map and que sheet.
  • There is a beautiful 9 mile warm up along the beautiful River Road.  Then, we have 6 sprints in the same location every week (again see the map for the locations).  These sprints vary from high speed flat sprints to challenging climbs throughout the final 17 miles of the ride.
  • This is a casual group ride until we are within 1 mile of each sprint line.  If we are within 1 mile of the sprint, anything goes.  Feel like going for it early - break away style?  Great!   Feel like playing cat & mouse, looking at everyone else until 50 meters before the line?  Great!  Each sprint is a race simulation, and racing is unpredictable - as is the case with this sprint ride.
  • After each sprint line, EVERYONE slows down until everyone re-groups and recovers.  We ride together easily until we are within 1 mile of the next sprint where the games start all over again!

These Wednesday night sprint rides are meant for all levels of road riders.  Whether you're a seasoned racer or curious about doing group road rides - this ride is for you!  Come join us and be a part of it!  Road bikes are strongly recommended.
