To ensure I can still run my winter training classes in a safe environment for the riders I will this year be running these through the Zwift VR cycling app .
The classes are free of charge, it’s just your own Zwift monthly subs (£12.99) that you need to pay. I know there are quite a few of you out there who like me have started using Zwift during lock down and hopefully these classes will prove to be a nice variation and challenge for you this winter.
So starting on the 4th October 2020 on a Wednesday evening at 18:30 I will be hosting classes for Stafford Road Club members and any of our cycling friends who may wish to join us.
The training classes will be organised as a group ride where all the riders will stay together and follow the same training schedule based on your own personal levels, so we ride and complete the sessions together as a team.
To make things more sociable we will also use the free Discord phone app so we can use this to talk to each other while riding.
These Zwift group rides we have run this year have proved really successful and the software is very simple to get to grips with. So please let me know if you are interested in taking part by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are welcome to join the classes at any point this winter so do not worry if you miss the start on 4th Nov. If you need any more info again please get in touch.
Another fabulous year for the @ascyclingcoach riders who have clocked up a very impressive list of achievements this year for themselves and their respective teams. The 6 competitive riders have achieved the following: –
21 Course personal bests (pb’s)
14 Distance pb’s
9 Club championship awards
4 National championship medals
3 Regional championship trophies
Broken 3 club records
Set 1 new British record for the fastest ever women’s team to ride a 12hr Time Trial
A true reflection of how each have excelled this year.
There are a number of District competitions still to be awarded and I know by early in the New Year when the awards diners have all taken place the above list will grow bigger still.
Starting on Thursday 18th October Alastair Semple Coaching will lead a 22 week training programme for cyclist designed to raise your strength, fitness and stamina.
These training classes are ideal for everyone from the novice rider wanting to simply improve their fitness and wellbeing through to the more competitive racing cyclist who is looking to increase their threshold power and speed.
Each individual rider will have their own training zones established based on their current fitness level so in each weeks varied training classes riders can make each session or interval as challenging or as easy as they like based on their specific training zones.
These classes have been running for the last 6 winters and have proved very popular with local riders based in and around Stafford. Riders enjoy a structured progressive winters training programme which allows them to develop in their own cycling discipline.
The cost for this 22 week programme is £39 per rider (plus £1 registration fee) to cover venue hire. To register here is the LINK (more…)
