RIDE A CENTURY

One of the most frequent remarks I hear from new cyclists is they have no idea where to go for long distance training. This page will solve that problem. I have divided the training schedule into both metric and imperial centuries which are the most common goals for a cyclist to aim for. The training schedule is based on one long ride per week, which is the one I will post, which can then be complimented by one or two shorter rides during the week.

The training starts off very easy with a fairly flat 44 km ride with a small amount of elevation gain. Both the distance and elevation gain will increase weekly until you finally reach the end of your training goal. Whether your goal is an imperial or metric century this training regime will get you there safely and effectively. This is the training program my team follows in the spring while prepping for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. I've been doing this for a while now and I've never seen a cyclist not reach their intended target with this 10 to 15 week program.

Each one of the rides starts in a different location around Southern Ontario, also known as The Golden Horseshoe. The furthest route east is in Durham and the furthest route south west is in Stoney Creek. All other routes fall in between. Each area offers up a little something different on each ride. The one thing you will come to notice is Southern Ontario has a wide and varied road network with many of the country roads quiet and perfect for cycling.

CONQUER CANCER

The Ride to Conquer Cancer

For those of you who have not participated in a mass cycling event The Ride to Conquer Cancer is an excellent way to get comfortable riding with many other cyclists. Most cyclists take their time and enjoy a day of cycling on some of the prettiest roads Southern Ontario has to offer.

TEAM BODY GO CYCLING KIT

Below are the designs for the TEAM BODY GO cycling kit. Click each thumbnail and it will open into a larger format for better viewing.

There are mens and ladies jersey and jackets and for the jersey's you will have a choice of either race or club cut. Race cut is rather tight fitting with club cut being a bit more relaxed with a looser fit. If you don't know what size you are for the race cut option go to any cycling store and try on a high end jersey (Assos for example) and the fit will be the same. Club cut will fit more like any standard sizing model. I submit the yearly order sometime around mid January. If you would like to buy a jersey or jacket in the middle of the season please let me know. Single item orders are available.
