Road Training

IMG_0280

Road training takes place on Delki Dozzi Cycling Track, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Road training routines are designed to help cyclists prepare for the surge-&-recover and sprinting demands of road racing.

Tuesday workouts generally involve maximum-intensity and sprint repeats of 90 seconds or less.

Thursdays usually consist of high-intensity repeats of 3 to 5 minutes.

Workouts are formatted in 4-week cycles, with intensity and duration rising from weeks 1 to 3, and recovery at lower intensity in week 4.

Workout routines are structured using heart rate-based intensity “zones”. Individualized heart-rate zone values are provided on request, based on data collected when the rider completes a 5km test on Delki Dozzi Track or indoors on a trainer.

Sudbury Cycling Club does not conduct cycling activities other than those communicated to Sudbury Cycling Club members by email from the club president.
