Weather might be a little mixed and cooler. Heading westward, some good opportunities to build up speed, especially for those braving the longer route coming back from Kilmichael. Good teamwork required for a safe and enjoyable spin, steady effort. Suggested coffee stop Bitesize in Ballincollig.
Focus: Style & efficiency
Those doing Toms spin class will be familiar with the systems check. Perform this systems check, scanning through the body, throughout the ride and particularly, when you are under pressure as when fatigued, form tends to drop off…just when you need to be as efficient as possible. Go through that mental checklist again and again will help you relax, gain composure and perspective…..and of course cycling style 😉
