We train as a team, offering similar training benefits to all levels of riders. Regardless of whether you’re a CLUB RIDER or a HIT SQUAD racer. Training Plans, Group Rides, and even personal one-on-one Coaching is available to everyone.
During the “off-season,” from Oct until March, we publish a weekly Training Plan, written by Chad. It’s available for free to anyone who wishes to follow along. Click HERE to check it out!
Each rider that follows Chad’s Training Plan applies it a little differently. Chad races at a high level for an amateur athlete, and his weekly plan is written to support as much. We recommend that each person find their own approach to what he does.
Chad shares his training methods, techniques, and reasoning through our public, social media platforms. But, on our club’s internal communication platform (Slack), he’s available to answer any questions, and help you get the most out of this plan.
We meet up each Saturday morning during the “off season” at 9:30am for a Group Ride (rain or shine). All teams, all levels, are welcome. We alternate our meeting location each week between the Southern Leschi Starbucks, and the Northern Log Boom Park.
Our rides usually feature two distinct groups. The Rider Group and the Racer Group. We warm up together for the first 30 minutes, then break off into our relevant groups.
The Riders ride at a steady “conversational pace.” While the Racers heat things up with rotating pace-lines, aggressive hill climbs, and pre-determined race sections.
For those that want more attention, Derek Wilkerson of Powered by DW, is available for personal coaching.
