Training Rides - We organise Volunteer-led Training Rides of varying lengths and difficulties, designed for people of all fitness levels. You can get in shape while meeting Riders in your neighbourhood. There is a whole community of fellow Riders out there for you to connect with. You can start to make some lifelong friends while getting ready for an epic journey. Remember, everyone else who has registered for the is in the same situation as you. They may not be ready now, but they will be with regular training and our help. To RSVP for the next Training Ride in your area, visit our Training Ride section below.
Training materials -Once you SIGN UP for The Ride, you’ll also receive a Manual to learn about proper nutrition and track your training progress. And last but not least, you can always call your actual human Ride Guides with any questions about training for The Ride. They’ll be able to provide you with one-on-one advice and guidance to ensure achievement of your goals.
Download our suggested guidelines to help keep track of your weekly workouts, kilometres cycled, hours per week on your bike, and cross-training activities. Remember, these kilometre guidelines are an ideal plan. If you can’t fit all of this into your schedule, don’t get so discouraged that you avoid riding altogether - just doing as much as you can will help your training quite a bit. Again, consistency is the key to proper training. The more you train, the more you’ll enjoy The Ride.
Stretching regularly before and after your training rides and workouts will help attain and maintain flexibility. This will have tremendous payoffs for you during The Ride - muscle pain, stiffness, injuries, and fatigue will all be lessened. Download our TIPS AND TRAINING ON HOW TO STRETCH. Those stretches should be incorporated into your weekly training schedule now.
