Cycle indoors with Empire this winter to get a head start on the competition next season. Biking indoors is the most effective way to become a better cyclist, a faster triathlete and master of your athletic goals. Join indoor, virtual group rides this winter in the company of friends without facing harsh weather conditions or icy roads. Athletes will be provided with a free training peaks account and a detailed training plan to follow. Athletes with a Zwift account (virtual reality cycling app), will be able to join a weekly group ride and communicate with athletes and coaches. The plan includes 3 rides per week – 1 base building, 1 tempo and 1 speed workout.
What: Virtual Indoor Cycling Program
Starts: January 2, 2023
Required Equipment: Indoor bike trainer (such as Wahoo, Tacx, Saris, CycleOps) & Free Training Peaks Account
Optional Equipment: To take full advantage of the program, it’s recommended that you have a smart trainer (or basic trainer with the necessary sensors) and a Zwift account to join group rides and communicate on the message board. Training Peaks will also sync to Rouvy and Trainer Road, where athletes can view workout details but not participate in the group ride or chat. If you don’t have a Zwift, Rouvy or Trainer Road subscription, athletes can follow the workout details directly from Training Peaks on ANY indoor trainer or spin bike.
Coach: Program written by Alison Kreideweis; group rides led by Empire Tri Club Ambassadors
Empire Tri Club Members – FREE (included in membership)
Non-Members – $180 (12-week program)
$15 (drop in class) Athletes MUST sign up by noon the day of the ride in order to receive workout details!
Level: This class is suitable for ALL levels – Whether you are a total beginner or an elite racer, you can both get an equally good workout in riding side by side. Every athlete is in control of your own speed and resistance.
