Tips on how to make the most of your ride:
Cycle all four hours or ride on a team. Drinks, snacks, motivation, and music provided!
If you are riding for the full 4-hours, you should train at least 3-4 hours per week including several spinning classes. Be sure to include lighter cross-training. The more rested and flexible your muscles are, the more enjoyable the ride.
You can rotate as often as you wish, but we recommend that each rider ride at least 1 hour at a time. You should have a rotation plan for all riders before the event begins. If you are riding shorter rotations, you should train several hours weekly, including spinning classes and lighter cross-training.
It is important to think about two elements: time and energy spent. Unlike a regular spinning class (including the longer classes), this is an endurance event. It’s not a race and you will need to pace yourself. There will be structured rest periods and recovery sections, as well as the opportunity to ride more aggressively. Spinning is for all ages and fitness levels and this 4 hour journey is no different. You should ride at your own pace and enjoy the trip!
Nutrition + Hydration: Nutrition, rest, recovery, and hydration are critical for proper preparation. The River Valley Club will provide nutritional foods during the ride, and instructors will assist in filling water bottles. Refrain from eating a big meal before the start of the ride, but do eat a good healthy breakfast. Be sure to stay hydrated! You should consume at least one full water bottle every 30-45 minutes. Drink frequently! Remember that energy expended too early cannot be brought back. Please ride smart, staying between 60-80% of your maximum heart rate.
