Well, it was gone and now it’s temporarily back. The cold weather has put a little damper on our ride plans over the last couple of days, but it looks like things will be clearing up and warming up in time for our Thursday evening Sweetspot/Tempo ride from Colchester School. For the time being, sit tight, become more well acquainted with your trainer, and considering letting some club members know if you plan on being on Zwift tonight!
Besides that, the Velocity Stage Race (May 13-14) is quickly approaching. The race webpage is up and registration will be opening later this week, so let your friends know!
Of course, we also need over 60 volunteers to make this race happen, so please make sure that you consider signing up for a position – there are even number of positions that you can do even if you want to race on the weekend!
Day by Day Schedule
Thursday, April 20: Sweetspot/Tempo Workout
Come join us for a Sweetspot/Tempo workout that’s sure to get you ready for race season! This week will feature 3 x (approx.) 10’ Sweetspot intervals. We’ll regroup after each interval, so don’t worry about how fit (or unfit) you think you are.
