April Newbie Rides
Our sponsor Fast & Fit Coaching is holding newbie rides leading up to Pleasant Prairie!
This year they have partnered with two bike shops to have rides leave from two starting points. For April, we will alternate locations from BFF Bikes in Bucktown and Tailwind Cycles in Albany Park.
For April, the schedule is:
- April 15th + 29th at BFF Bikes 2113 W Armitage Ave
- April 22nd will be hosted by Tailwind Cycles 3140 Montrose Ave
All Rides leave at 9 am with a moving time of 1 1/2-2 hrs. We start with a safety check and rules of the road and leave promptly at 9:05am.
The rides are part of a progressive training plan ending with Pleasant Prairie Tri so each week has a new focus, increase time, cadence, transition, etc.
We progress into bricks as part of the Saturday rides, where the bikes are secured at the shop and we go for a timed run.
All riders will be given a cue sheet at the beginning of the ride since the distance changes weekly.
The rides are no-drop so pace is determined by the slowest rider but be prepared to push yourself.
We ask riders to have helmet, phone, id, water bottles, flat repair kit (if you do not know how to change a flat they can help), bike.
