Training for Your Ride

“As a coach, my approach to any challenge is always the same. First, identify your goals; what do you want to do and when do you want to do it.” – Bob Ford

We encourage all CT Challenge riders to be physically prepared for the challenge they will undertake. To help you with that, we offer indoor cycling and outdoor training rides (once the weather turns). Keep an eye on the Calendar of Events in the Community section of the website. All training rides will be posted there.

Note: You can post your own training rides on the Calendar of Events too.  To submit your training ride, click here. Consider turning  your training rides into fundraisers! 

Indoor Cycling—You’re Invited

Registered riders can participate in indoor cycling classes at the Mission Training Center at 250 Pequot Ave. in Southport, CT. They are held Saturday mornings at 10 AM, Mondays at 6:30 PM and Thursdays at 5:30 PM. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registered Road Warriors can spin for free. All others pay a $10 drop-in fee.

To register for a class, please email tori@ctchallenge.org.

Outdoor Training Rides

As soon as the weather turns, we will offer outdoor training rides for cyclists of varying levels including beginner, intermediate and experienced. We will post all outdoor training rides on our Calendar of Events in the Community section of the website so keep an eye on that.

…and remember: Be sure to post your own training rides on the Calendar of Events too.  To submit your training ride, click here. Use it to help build your team.
