Wally’s on tour! Busso 70.3

Many of our members have been working hard to be in the best possible shape to compete this weekend at Busso. In the mix we have a number of first timers as well as new members competing. To bring them home on the day we need all our spectating members to get in the spirit and head down to the Club Tent for cheering and support. We have been lucky enough to win the “Pimp My Tent” competition. This entitles us to prime position on the run course and in the thick of it down Club Alley. There are other goodies included so join us in your best red and white stripes and we will make it very special for all competing.

Cycling Training Sessions

Tuesday Ride; Iluka Loops

Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords
Time: 5:45am – 7:00am
Details: This is the regular Tuesday morning club ride. There are three ride plans catering for all speeds of riders: Group 1 – plus 32km/hr, Group 2 – plus 28km/hr, Group 3 less 28km/hr.  This is a high-intensity training session with a mix of fast, flat sections plus 3-7 hills and dedicated recovery points.  The ride is suitable for all levels, see WEBSITE for more information.

Thursday Ride; Hepburn Loop

Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords
Time: 5:45am– 7:00am

The Hepburn Loops ride is based on laps around a 10km circuit in Hillarys. We start at Whitfords Shops (outside Celebrations) and take Whitfords Ave to Hepburn Ave, then back to Whitfords along Marmion Ave – we turn left into Banks Ave down to the roundabout and head past Bunnings and back onto Whitfords Ave – thus completing 1 loop/circuit. We ride as a bunch and try to do 3-4 loops (riders can peel off at any time as suit their needs). Ideally, the first loop is done at any easy pace and then we build the pace for each lap – the aim is to keep the pace consistent throughout the whole lap – no surging, no sprint efforts. The final lap is your fastest effort but steady the whole way. Great training for everyone.

Saturday Long Ride

There will be no Club long ride this weekend as it is Busselton 70.3. Please feel free to self organise on Facebook.

Novice Ride will be taking a hiatus until next season! Thanks Kevin.
