Continuation of the popular hill sessions we did over winter.We will meet at the racecourse and head out to find some hills to climb. The format has been an hour ride to the hill, then an hour of hill reps then an hour home again. As the summer progresses we will venture further afield to find better hills!The usual rules apply: wear suitable attire and carry all you need for several hours in the saddle.
A chaingang is when a group of cyclists work together to hold a much higher pace than they could do individually. Drafting can save you up to 30% in terms of effort so if can hold 15mph yourself, then a 20mph chaingang will be easy!We will use the usual Acaster Malbis, Appleton Roebuck, Acaster Selby loop but will meet at the racecourse. A few simple "rules" to follow:Never overlap your front wheel to the rider in fronts rear wheelNever weave or driftNever suddenly slow down or stopAlways sign potholes, road debris, parked cars, overtaking cyclist, junctions etc clearly (hand signals and verbal calls)Always ride smoothly, and don’t surge or attack.We will be using the same format/route over the whole summer so please join from the beginning so we can all work together and progress.
A weekly coached technique session.
Meet in reception 7:45pm, pay the session fee (£4) to the coach who will mark you off the attendee list. If you are not signed up you will need to wait until the signed up attendees have completed signing in, to see if there is space available for you to swim.
Once allowed through to the changing area get changed (you'll need a £1 coin for the lockers) and meet poolside for the pre-swim briefing.
If it is your first time please let the coach know who will be able to explain the session to you and help you to decide which lane would best suit your ability. The session follows a specific set, but if you need to take a break then thats absolutely fine - take a rest as you need it. If you have them, bring fins for fun. And its always good to take a bottle of water poolside with you, swimming is thirsty work!
Chaingang session. 25-30 miles in a tight group and a good pace (20mph+)
Entry is on the line, on the night and costs £5. Signing-on starts at 18:30(ish) and the first rider off is at 19:30. There will be prizes for male and female riders at the club awards night.
The format is as follows; there are nine races in total, four over flat courses and five over a hillier course. You must be a paid up member of YTC. Your best five races are to count, with at least one flat and one hilly course undertaken. You must also have volunteered to help out at an event, please get in touch with me and I will put your name to Clifton as a helper. Word of advice, do not leave this until the last races, there are usually too many volunteers trying to get their volunteer event in!
A 90 minute coached session based on improving technique and endurance. We have 3 lanes roughly at 6 mins/400m, 7 mins/400m and 8 mins/400m. Bring your toys (fins and paddles) to get the most out of the session.
This is a popular session so if you cannot make it please sign out ASAP and post on the club swim group Facebook page.£5 payable on the night
