Alpine Training Days
This summer 45 Degrees North are teaming up with some of our favourite bike shops, wheel builders & coaches across the country to give riders the coaching, tips & confidence they need to achieve their goals on a bike. Our coaches will ride with you, answer all your questions & give you tips along the way to help you corner like a pro, pedal more efficiently, climb & descend faster & with more confidence.
The series of sociable rides will take you to some of the best roads & lanes in the countryside, plus the obligatory cafe stop!
Here’s a few rides to get you started:
Imperial Cycles Workshop is a great local bike shop & promoter for the Imperial Winter Series races at Hillingdon Cycling Circuit. We’ll be setting off from the workshop on Sunday May 17th at 10am & heading out towards Windsor & the surrounding hills for around 55miles (92km). Obviously there’ll be a cafe stop along the way too, so come along & join in a sociable ride from your local bike shop.
East Central Cycles, Exmouth Market, London – Sunday June 21st. Back when he was a junior, shop owner & mechanic Jim was riding with other young stars like Gerraint Thomas in the National Junior Tour of Wales. Now Jim races cyclocross & road & dabbles in triathlon.
Velo Smith, Devon. Coach & expert wheel builder David makes some awesome wheels. Plus for anyone that knows the area, its not flat! Rides will set off from Velo Smith’s base in Plymouth & you’ll have the benefit of two Level 3 British Cycling Coaches to quiz. Dates TBC.
Please get in touch with Chris from the team or call the shop directly & book a space.
