“Maverick Bikes & Cafe is postponing all group rides until further notice. The COVID numbers are too high and we love our families to much. Stay safe folks.”
A brisk ride with the old pro!!
Saturday’s at 7:30
A brisk ride with the old pro Nigel Chinemilly!! Starting this Saturday at 7:30 leaving from our parking lot at Maverick Bikes. Nigel will be headed out for a 20 to 30 mile ride. After the ride you can enjoy refreshments at our Cafe.
These rides while fast are controlled and fun for our more advanced cyclist.
My rides are set to build you up to be a fast and efficient rider. Since there are few to no races on schedule for 2020 training should be more like Fall season where we ride in Zone 2 and sometimes into Zone 3&4 for 10-20% of the ride only. That being said the rides can be 30- 50 miles or like 2- 3 ½ hours of total riding on Saturdays, starting 7-8am to beat the weather conditions and other cyclist. All rides unless listed are departing from Maverick Bikes & Cafe. On Wednesday we can also schedule evening rides starting 5pm and will be 1 ½ to 2 hrs. and mix gravel/ road and some days road only. Roads bikes and slicks regardless of road surface are best for these rides. Work on sprinting on Tuesday or Thursday depending on weather conditions. Also doing rides on Sunday morning departing at 6:30 -7 for 1½ hour 50% tempo or fixed gear bike.
I also ride with my 11-year boy at least twice per week other kids are welcome to join and normally start from the trail in Purcellville if any interest please let the folks at the shop know. We can tweak the rides to accommodate other riders’ levels and strengths if needed. Or maybe organize some clinics or hear from other riders on what goals they might have in mind moving forward for the next season.
Looking forward to meeting some new riders and also to see some old familiar faces.
