Guide to Weight Loss during Base Training
#CENTURYRIDE
Guide to Weight Loss during Base Training

Base endurance is an essential component of getting fit and prepared to ride Gran Fondos, Century Rides, Gravel Grinders and multi-day rides like bicycle tours and charity rides.

In this phase, typically in Spring, you lay down the foundation of longer rides that allow your body to adapt to riding for over 5 hours of more.

In fact some of the big Gran Fondos in the mountains will take you anywhere from 5 to 10 hours to complete.

HUNKR – Brings 100 Kilometer Bicycle Racing to Orange County on March 18th

 

A HUNKR is a 100 kilometer bicycle race. Racing a set distance of 100 km will bring new competitors by providing an opportunity to race against others as well as racing towards a personal time goal.

Currently, there is little opportunity to make a living as a professional cyclist. Having a HUNKR series that spans the globe and arcs the calendar is our take on how to grow the professional side of the sport. $10,000 in prize money, a sizable purse, and racers under 23 race free!

Registration is now open!
