This week there will be more endurance based riding – group based. The cafe stop is at the Launceston working mans cafe (my favourite) and both groups will meet up there with the A Group having done about 5 more miles. By the time you get home expect to have done 75 and 70 miles approximately. The weather looks like it will be dry so favourable conditions to be out on the bike.

Saturday Training Rides – A and B groups.
These rides are for people who are looking to develop their cycling performance and who wish to ride in a structured group following good group riding practice. They are aimed at people who already have a level of fitness. Novice cyclists should try one of the other YOGi rides first. For the period before Christmas and into the new year there is an emphasis on developing an endurance base. As cycling events get closer and the weather warms up there will be opportunities for developing speed, power and to continue with endurance base riding. Fast rides will also feature. Groups will aim to have no more than 12 riders and, to facilitate this, there could be a split into A and B groups. There may be more than one ride and route offered, to facilitate various types of riding and keep group numbers manageable.
