Club Ride - Saturday 12th November


Forecast for Saturday is heavy rain all morning so no club ride this week. Not safe / sensible for group ride.
Hope you're able to get out late Saturday or Sunday and that normal service resumes next week.

Turbo sessions



Thanks to those who endured the FTP/LTHR testing last night. For those who have put their data into Training Peaks I've updated your training zones for either power or heart rate.

For those who have liked their Training Peaks accounts to mine I've created a training calendar with plans for other sessions.

Remember, no class next week as the hall is unavailable but I have set homework in Training Peaks.

See you on the 17th for some more turbo torture.
