Course Description:

You’ve thought about it, haven’t you, watching on with envy as professional-looking cyclists pass you on the roads

Whether you are new to the sport or just looking to get back in the saddle, sign up to this 6  week  100K in a Day  training programme.

It is an ideal opportunity for you to make new friends, get out into the fresh air and open spaces and enjoy the social dimension of Group cycling. For an inexperienced cyclist, starting back can be a scary prospect. This easy-to-follow plan will have you confidently undertaking spins of 60-70km, with the goal of completing 100K in a single spin by the end of the course. It’s easier than you think !

This programme will carefully guide you through the training plan, it is aimed at those who are looking to re-start or continue cycling for health, fitness, recreation, commuting or to tackle a challenge or charity ride.

If you have any health issues we recommend that you consult with your doctor before beginning this structured training plan

What is involved?

The programme is given in conjunction with Syls Cycling Club and will start in class in Malahide Community School

First 5 classes in Malahide Community School will involve introducing participants to:

  • Cycling safety and confirming the Insurance you need (as described below)
  • Detailed bike maintenance talk and demos
  • Gearing, cadence and pacing
  • Cycling nutrition – how to fuel your body on- and off-road
  • group cycling techniques – the benefits of wind drafting
  • Complementary physical conditioning, tailored core training plans
  • Health monitoring apps for your cycling – all you need to know
  • Long term goal – how a  regular 100k cyclist progressed to the 312k Majorca Gran Fondo this year (talk)

Leaving the classroom you take to the roads and begin to cycle increasing distances over the coming weekends.

We aim to put the theory into practice with cycle spins

  • Week by week you build your fitness and cycle for longer
  • As you progress through the programme you will increase your distance with your ability by participating in dedicated spins with Syls CC
  • Our aim is for you to finish the programme with a 100K in a Day  spin while having 1 or 2 leisurely coffee breaks to refuel. Previous participants really enjoyed our programmes and continue to cycle actively.
