Description


A structured ride using High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Our focus is on Endurance and we are running one 2 hour session.

Lane Cove National Park is a graceful area of bushland with mostly good road surface and little traffic. We will be bathed in birdsong and sunshine (fingers crossed on that last one!).

We ride a few times between the top entrance and a safe turn-around area and also up the hill to Plassey Rd. The HIIT ‘intervals’ will be on uphill sections, with ‘recovery’ time at the top and while coasting downhill sections. We will use the marked route flexibly, each week varying the number of times we repeat segments and how we pace ourselves during the ‘intervals’.

Mostly, the gradients stay well below 5% and the road surface is good except for some potholes and crumbly surfaces on the hilly side roads. During inclement weather, the road can be wet from runoff. In summer it can be very hot and extra water should be carried. Possible hazards include twigs and leaves, potholes and rough surfaces on hills, cars, walkers and other cyclists.

Coffee is usually at Eden Nursery. Toilets are at Eden and at the bottom entrance to the Park.

We will try to cater for all level of fitness and strength. No riders will be left behind. All participants are responsible for riding within their limits. Because of the extra exertion involved in HIIT, participants must at all times monitor their physical condition and stop riding if they are outside normal limits or in distress. We recommend using a heart monitor.

Notes: To maximise your training benefits, we hope you can join us every week in June. We are running the ride every Monday in June except after the long weekend, when it will be Tuesday. Hopefully, you will simply feel the improvements after a couple of weeks. As well, there are a few ways to measure your improvements. Over subsequent weeks you could compare your times for various sections of the ride, track your performance on the Strava segments, or you could use a powermeter if you have one. Everyone may measure their fitness differently and improve at different rates. We will use the marked route flexibly, each week varying the number of times we repeat segments and how we pace ourselves during the intervals.
