December ~ Now it begins...

These rides are death by a thousand cuts...

Depart Time
8:30 sharp, or when I arrive; whichever's the latter!

Ride Activity
December ~ Undulating, steady-ish, rides, re-grouping at the top of the climbs, although the group should be compact on most of the climbs.

Riding slightly over-geared, on the climbs (concentrating on leg strength) riding slightly under-geared on the flats (concentrating on leg speed).  Don't mix them up!

Rides start with Undulating Elite at 60 kms and 800 metres of climbing (not including getting to the Gunsite and back home) finishing three weeks later with Undulating Champ at 75 kms and 1000 metres.

Performance Level
Two groups, humans and mutants.  Mutants climb a kilometre or two faster, but that doesn't make it right!  The longer you're on the climb, the more training benefit you get from it!

Choose the group that best matches your ability not your ambition.

Remember, we're not racing, we're training to race.  Controlled moderation is the key to success.  First "training" race is four months away, so no need to be riding like a hero just yet.
