The Pacific Cycling Centre featured its first off-season training rides last week in Victoria, BC, to kick-off the 2010-2011 season. Despite the wet and windy weather all week, the rides were dry and sunny in ideal 12 degree weather.

The rides, which were around Victoria — taking in Willis Point, East Sooke and Happy Valley Road. — were aimed at developing and improving endurance and some of the basic Key Performance Factors (KPF’s). There were two groups, the first group doing a three hour ride and the second group two hours. The rides take place every Wednesday and Saturday until February 2011. The groups also met at the gym on Friday for a dry-land training session consisting of dynamic strength and core stability exercises.

The training sessions are open to all PCC athletes and other riders who would like to build a solid foundation before the 2011 season. The sessions are led by PCC Head Coach Houshang Amiri, and supported by Action Motorcycles.

This coming weekend — from November 4 -7 — will be the first off-season training camp, followed by a second one from December 9 — 12. The camps are open to all cyclists: for more information go to: www.pacificcyclingcentre.ca/camps/default.html
