Camp COVID Crusher – “Season” 2

I will be running the second edition of the week-long stay-at-home riding camp from Monday, August 31 to Sunday, September 6. You’ll have the long weekend Monday to rest up your tired legs before thinking about what fall has in store.

The only things that might hold this camp back are lousy weather and a more stringent return to COVID-19 precautions. Our first camp was a blazing success with a week of ideal summer temperatures. Let’s cross our fingers for another week of great weather.

Make sure you get some 2-3 hour rides into your legs over these next couple of weeks to be ready for the big ramp in volume.

You do not need to ride every day of the camp. But your overall fitness will benefit most if you do.

I need to know who to expect so I can send out some pre-camp details. Please register for the camp  >>HERE.

Remember Our Giro di YEG Climbduro is OPEN

This time the Challenge segment is longer … almost 6km. You don’t need to be fast to be eligible for the Italian-themed prizes I’ll have up for grabs. You only need to ride the Challenge!

All the details to participate are HERE >>> Giro di YEG. Not only do you need to have a free Strava account, linked to your free Climbduro account, but you’ll also need to JOIN the Principale Tappa Challenge to log your result(s) – yes, you can ride it more than once to earn more draw prize entries!

I had a glitch in the set up for the Challenge, and results from August weren’t getting added. It’s fixed now. Just open the Challenge details HERE >>> Principale Tappa <<< scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the “Not Seeing Your Time?” button. Refresh the page and it will pull in every attempt you made since the beginning of August.
