New Group Ride
When I first started riding the track as a junior the thing that I loved most about the discipline was how great the people were. The rhythm of the workouts seemed to be: work hard, socialize, repeat…As many of us are recreational cyclists, and even those that race do so for the challenge not the money, it’s an ethos that’s easy to back. That’s why, this summer, in order to take advantage of the great weather and promote the social aspect of our sport we’re starting a group ride. First, the details:
When: Leave at 6:00pm, the last Friday of every month (May-August)
Where: Meet at Musette Caffe, Chinatown
Who: Anyone that has graduated the Learn to Ride/Novice sessions
What: Group ride to the track for a coached workout with food and drinks on the way back
Now, the specifics…
The last Friday of every month we’ll meet a Musette Caffe, Chinatown for the start of our group ride. From there we’ll head to the track via the Adanac bike path. Once we arrive, we’ll quickly break out our track bikes and, since we’ll already be warmed up, get straight into the workout. Afterwards, we’ll pack up our things and head out for a bite to eat and some drinks (if you’ve been to our Feature Friday Night Race Series events you know that we’re fans of the burgeoning micro-brew industry, we’ll let your imagination take it from there). Sound fun? It will be!
The ride is open to everyone but in order to do the workout you will need to have graduated our Learn to Ride/Novice Coached Sessions. This is to ensure that the workout goes smoothly. That being said, if you’d rather just show up after the ride, or meet us at the track after the workout, we’ll announce where we’re going on Twitter and Facebook that day so be sure to “Like” us or follow us on Twitter. We’ll arrive at the track at or just before 7:00 and the workout will last approximately one hour.
Let the summer begin…
