Vancouver Outdoor Cycling Workouts
Join a Vancouver outdoor cycling workout & learn how to implement technique & strategy into your rides. Connect with teammates & breathe in the fresh air!
Any cyclist will tell you that there is nothing like riding outdoors. A structured interval workout outside improves your overall power and speed as well as your hill-climbing ability.
Whether you are training for a Gran Fondo, a triathlon or simply training to stay fit, these interval based workouts will leave you feeling stronger than ever!
Results are guaranteed when you follow our weekly program.
- A different focus each day: strength/hill intervals on Tuesday and power/threshold/tempo intervals on Thursday.
- Technical tips and guidance in each session.
- Personal technical advice as you need it.
- A fun group that will motivate you to work hard each week.
All levels of road cyclists and triathletes are welcome! If you're confident on your bike and can ride between 23 and 26 km per hour on flat pavement, you’ll have no trouble keeping up during these fun and challenging Vancouver outdoor cycling workouts.
* Please note that these are interval based workouts and not cycling lessons. Although you don't need to be fast to ride with us, you do need to be comfortable riding your bike on the road. If you sign up for the Tuesday hill workouts, expect some steep hills between 10-15%.
How do we do it?
- A group warm-up at an easy to moderate speed to get the muscles ready. We stay together for this.
- At the workout destination, a group workout that each individual can do at their own pace.
- If we are doing hill repeats, some people might do 4 repeats and others might do 6 depending on ability. In the end, we all do the same workout and spend the same amount of time working hard.
- The intervals are generally done on short loops or out-and-back sections of road which makes it easy for different levels of cyclists to train together and support each other.
