YMCA Offering Endurance Training for Cyclists


Are you looking for some training guidance for an upcoming cycling event or do you just want to work on your own cycling endurance?   

The Family YMCA is offering an Endurance Training for Cyclists Class. Each class will have a 2-hour riding component and a 1/2 hour of core conditioning. 

In addition, the following topics will be discussed: 

  • Proper bike fit;
  • Clothing and equipment;
  • Nutrition and hydration,
  • Aches and pains-preventing them and what to do if you have them;
  • Weekly training recommendations; and
  • How to design your own training plan.

Classes begin Jan. 20 and run through April 14 (12 two-and-a-half hour classes) and will be held from 9:30 a.m. to noon Sundays. The fee is $130 for YMCA members and $170 for program members.  On-line registration is available.
