Maintain and build your cycling fitness through the winter. Beat the cold, darkness, and the trainer doldrums this off-season. Come train with Cycle Craft and Team Bulldog! Wednesday nights at 6pm from January 5th through March 9th, 2011.

Although we don’t live in Vermont, the winters in New Jersey can be tough for cycling.  And by the time you get home from work, there might not be much, or any, daylight left for you to get out and ride.  If you’ve ever ridden on a stationary trainer, you know it can be a great workout but can be mentally numbing.

Cycle Craft and Team Bulldog will be conducting trainer classes on Wednesday nights through the winter.  Each class will be 2 hours long (including warm-up and cool-down) and led by professional bicycle racer and coach, Brian Lariviere.  Two-thousand ten was our inaugural year and we had great success.  The enthusiasm in the class was addictive, and the motivation levels stayed high.

This is a 10-week, structured class that builds over each session.  The two-hour workout is scripted by Coach B.L. and is designed to help you build endurance, leg speed, strength, and power while keeping it fresh and exciting.  We welcome beginners and experienced cyclists.

All you need is your bicycle (road bike or mountain bike with slick tire on the rear) and a stationary trainer. It’s helpful, but not necessary, to have a heart rate monitor, cadence equipped bike computer, adjustable resistance trainer, and the ultimate training tool—a power meter.  Any of these items can of course be purchased at Cycle Craft to enhance your training experience.
