Welcome to the 2019 Cycling Season!
Savages Bicycle Centre is again offering a 6-week training program for beginner road cyclists.
This program is aimed at beginning cyclist new to the sport, riders that have been off the bike for years but want get back on, or those cyclist who want to learn how to actually ride a bike. To “actually learn how to ride a bike” may sound like a crazy statement to someone who has been riding for years but the idea behind our training program is to get back to the basics and teach you how to be an efficient cyclist that can ride the flats, rolling hills, and climb hills you thought were not possible. Whether you are aiming for you first Gran Fondo event or just want to get more enjoyment out of cycling spending 8 weeks with us will get you there!
This training program does require a level of commitment on your part. Once you sign up you are expected to attend each weekly training session as well as do the homework that is assigned each week. The progression of rides that follow along with the training schedule will leave those riders that are not committed to program behind very quickly. As such, it will be very obvious if riders are not following the training schedule. Ron and Matt are committing their time to help you progress – it is expected that every rider will have a similar level of commitment.
If you are ready to make the commitment to the training program, we guarantee that you will develop an increased level of fitness, become a more efficient cyclist, develop a basic understanding of bike mechanics, have a lot of fun, and work your way to a healthier lifestyle.
We require THREE things from you:
1. Make the commitment to attend every Monday -- remember you will never achieve your goals if you don't take that first step!
2. A $40.00 fee for the 6 week course. These funds will be used for gas and food during supported rides and a year-end party at the end of the 6 week program to celebrate your achievement.
