Monday cycle, Apr 13

As the weeks go by, we’ll have more daylight to play with which will give more options on what we can do with this session and how far afield we can travel.  For the moment we’ll stick with hill repeats on the same hill as last week which worked out quite well.  The plan for this week is as follows:

  • 5 x (5 mins TEMPO leading straight into 2 mins HARD, recover on descent)

Since we work off time and not the distance to the top of the hill, it works out roughly that everyone completes the session together, regardless of ability.  We cycle from the meeting point to the top of the airport hill up the road at the back of the Bull McCabe’s.  Some sections of this are steep.  We’ll going up these slowly as a group, at low cadence, focusing on pedaling technique.  It would be advisable to have done a short warm up spin before attempting this.  We will advise on intensity, technique and safety issues.  Bring your own watch for timing purposes.

Meeting point is Travelodge, near Kinsale Rd roundabout.   Leaving @ 6.30pm sharp.
