Want to jump start your 2016 cycling season and ride with a fun bunch of people?
Here are three excellent training series sponsored by the Fremont Freewheelers Bicycle Club (FFBC) that start this month.
Progressive Ride Series (PRS) Our annual PRS rides start on January 10th and runs every Sunday. The PRS series gets riders ready for a full century. These rides start out gradually and proceed at an M- pace. B-pace may also be offered this year.
Less Aggressive Progressive Ride Series (LAP) The LAP series is back, starting January 17th! Want to train to ride a metric century with a fun group of people? Are some of the club rides too fast, especially when there is a lot of climbing? Try this Less Aggressive Progressive (LAP) series and you’ll be ready for metrics like the Tierra Bella or the Primavera. This series has fewer miles and less elevation gain than the traditional Progressive Series and is aimed at Touring/Moderate pace riders (especially those that climb at a slower pace).
Cinderella Conditioning Ride Series (CCRS) Last, but my no means least, we have our annual Cinderella training series starting on January 23rd and running Saturday’s through April 2nd. This year we’ve split the training into two distinct series, the “Coaching Series” is for new women riders (sorry, no men) and is a paid program. For full details of the “Coaching Series” please see the FFBC Cinderella website. The second Cinderella series is our “Cinderella Conditioning Ride Series”. It’s free, and open to all club members. The “Conditioning” series will progress to a metric century a little more gently than the LAP rides. The rides will be no-drop rides at a T-M pace, led by many of our regular Cinderella ride leaders.

All training series (except for the CCRS Coaching Series) are free with FFBC membership! For info on FFBC membership, Ride Classification, Ride Calendar, etc, click here.
