Adults - Bovingdon Bomber Training (Tues)
Fitness and skills for Juniors (16 and over) and Adults
We will again be running adult training sessions at the Bovingdon circuit in 2018. The sessions have evolved on from what we did last year and will work for two groups.
The improvers group are going to do roughly 50% skills and 50% fitness work. Fitness wise, this group might be currently riding on our A or B rides.
The goals for this group will focus on improving their confidence riding in a group and getting better at basic skills like cornering and sheltering from the wind.
The second group is aimed at more experienced riders and will suit fitter riders currently riding the longer C or D rides through to 3/4 cat racers.
Participants in this group will work on 30% skills and 70% fitness and should expect a pretty hard work out. You'll learn how to ride in a fast group, riding pace-lines and simulating some race skills.
When and where
Sessions will run on Tuesdays from May 2nd to August. Sessions start at 7 pm and last approximately 90 minutes a good mix of skills and training.
Sessions will be held at the Bovingdon Circuit and will use the full Bomber circuit and also the new shorter Flyer circuit.
What bike will I need?
These sessions are suitable to road bikes. Please come along with a bike in good working order, don't forget your helmet and remember a drink.
What age can come?
We are aiming these sessions at junior and above. So 16 and older through to vets. All are welcome and you'll be riding with others of similar fitness.
How do I get there?
If coming by car then access is from A41 only. You need to leave the A41 at the Services (McDonalds) junction (signposted Bourne End Mills Ind Estate) and head up Upper Bourne End Lane which is off the northbound slip road.
Access by bike is through the industrial area up Bourne End Lane off the London Road in Bourne End. Head right when you get to the top of Upper Bourne End Lane. There is no access through the main Bovingdon Market entrance.
Please note, there is no public access to the circuit outside of organised events.
