Shorter days and colder temperatures have always signalled the end of our indoor ride season but it is also the beginning of the indoor ride season. That is the time of year when you start to build your base for your next race season and you can get the most out of the indoor season by training with focus, purpose and consistency. Then, the New Year rolls around and the outdoor ride season starts to loom on the horizon. Suddenly, it's time to get more serious about training. Coached bike workouts take the guesswork out of it for you: all you need to do is show up and do the work. Join us and start to build your base for next season.
We're now offering our indoor rides on via Zoom. With your registration, you will get an invitation to the video feed and can do the workouts at home, work or wherever you're set up.
Bike workouts are coached by Steph Neufeld and Elise Gaudet. Steph is a certified spin instructor and multi-time Ironman finisher. Elise is a certified triathlon coach and also has a long list of Ironman races. Both Steph and Elise have qualified for and competed in Kona so they know what it takes to get there and get the job done.
Ride times are Tuesdays 6 PM and Saturdays 830AM.
Zoom Workouts are run on Zoom so you will first need to add Zoom to the device you want to use to join the workout. Then, send us your email address so we can send you the link for the day's workout. Two simple steps - it's just that easy. The workout is the hardest part!
You don't need anything specific or special in order to join in our workouts. A bike, a trainer, a bottle of water or two and a towel (highly recommended) are all you need in order to get in a great workout with us. You can ride on a Smart trainer and also engage on a training platform like Zwift as you ride with us but it's not necessary. If you are riding on a platform that you run on a laptop or your phone, you will need to connect with us on Zoom via a separate device. It's a good idea to test your setup before the workouts. We are happy to help you with that a day or two before your first session.
Elise rides on Zwift for the workouts she coaches so the workout files can be sent to you after the workout. Then, those workouts will be available to you to repeat any time you like.
