2015 Beginner Century Training and Experienced Century Riders Training Information
Come join the fun and take part in on our weekly century training rides. These rides (which start in early March) are designed to get us in shape for the season, and more specifically, to prepare us for the SBRA Annual Swiezy / Pope Memorial Montauk Railroad Century Ride on Saturday, May 9th, 2015.
First Time Century Riders
If you have never done a 100 mile ride (but would like to), sign up for Bob and Josie's free "Beginner Century Training" School. This year's series of Saturday training rides HAS "CHANGED" TO START ON MARCH 14TH (due to weather), 2 weeks after SBRA's Super Cycling Saturday on February 28th to prepare you for riding. The training will start with a 25 mile "D" pace ride from the Ronkonkoma Railroad Station. Each Saturday the rides get a little longer and a little faster, until you are able to ride 100 miles at a "B" pace by May. Past experience proves that anyone who stays with the program WILL be able to comfortably complete the 100 mile ride to Montauk.
