Wednesday training ride

  • to
  • Helvetia Tavern

    10275 Northwest Helvetia Road, Hillsboro, OR (map)

    45.596536 -122.916618

  • Far South end of the parking lot, near the RR tracks
  • Do you have big plans for the summer but feel unsure of your climbing abilities? Wondering what all this hill stuff is about? Just plain Scared of Hills? This is about as friendly and forgiving as a climbing ride gets, so hike up yer ridin' shorts and come on out.

    Comfortable climbing requires good technique and mindset as much as physical fitness, so I will begin each ride with a few minutes of remarks about climbing technique and strategies, and will also be there for coaching and encouragement as we make our way up the hill.

    This will be interval type training.  We can modify the routes in future weeks and build up to a Logi trail climb.  Here is a link to the standard route google map of ride.  On any given week depending on riders we can change the route to fit.

    All this going up means a certain amount of coming down, so we'll working on descending too!

    Type of Ride This is a training and coaching ride.
