National Women’s Training Day 28th May

The Women’s Commission of Cycling Ireland is pleased to announce the first in a series of training days which takes place on Saturday 28th May in the Annebrook Hotel, Mullingar. All abilities are welcome – from beginner to elite. The format of the training day will be a coached training spin followed by a full debrief, after lunch there will be a number of talks on relevant topics.

This will be the first of 3 training days to be held during the summer, topics covered over series will include motivation, nutrition, training programmes, mechanics and bike set up along with details on preparation for events from leisure to time trials and road racing.

The cyclists will be divided into various groups depending on ability – a beginner is defined as someone who can cycle about 20km in one hour. The spins will range from a distance of 20km – 60km, with the beginner groups learning skills and the more experienced groups learning how to apply training tools like intervals and strength training.

2010 World Masters Champion Orla Hendron said: “The aim of the camp is to get women of all ages and fitness levels together for a coached cycling weekend, to build social links between female cyclists and to encourage participation in cycling, be it in leisure events, commuting or at competition level.”

The cost of the training camp is €25 which includes the coached training ride, afternoon talks and refreshments. To register your interest, please fill out the attached form and return it to Sarah Piner.
