Vo2Max Intervals & Anaerobic Intervals (60 min)
The focus of our six-week series beginning May 13 is strength and speed. This training will prepare you for the rolling hills, strong crosswinds, and building Texas heat as we roll into summer.
Vo2Max Intervals are focused on building strength. This training will allow you to pedal stronger and harder. You need this when you’re climbing hills or pushing through a headwind.
The focus of Anerobic Intervals is building speed. These are done at a high cadence of 90-to-110 rpm to help you react to changes in pace and terrain. The combined focus of strength and speed will be the sweet spot of training, the results of which will coincide with some of your best bike ralley results of the season. Plus, it’s more fun when you can ride stronger and it feels easier.
This six week program will focus on a mix of high-intensity, short-duration intervals and longer efforts that best mimic group rides, rallies and races.
We will also work on heat and hydration strategies to better help you handle the Texas Summers!
When you emerge from this block in mid-June, you will be truly prepared for some of the season’s best Metric Centuries!
Training through this six week block, you’ll be perfectly prepared for the Cow Creek Classic June 21.
We’ll train on the weekdays and rally on the weekends. We’ll have a group departure at all rallies. You’ll train during the week and show up prepared. Plus, each weekend’s rally will be a great opportunity to work on your pack riding skills with your friends. You’ll be in optimal shape and ready for these races:
June 21: Dam Time Trial
June 22: Cow Creek/Waxahachie
Threshold Training for Triathletes (60 min)
Tri Training will be held at both Cycling Center Dallas locations. We will continue to focus on stamina and the aero position advantage. This allows you to safely train in the optimal position. We also offer uninterrupted trainining. This means you also can get your long intervals in without having to battle traffic, pedestrians, dogs, strollers and other annoyances.
You’ll experience longer intervals and race-specific intensity for a 60-minute session that will help you train for a triathlon.
The emphasis will be on threshold, which is the level of intensity you can hold throughout an entire race. The benefit will be the ability to pedal harder, longer and reduce fatigue so you’re legs will be ready for the run.
Richardson: Mon / Wed 6:30pm and Tue / Thu 7:30am
White Rock Lake: Tue / Thu 6am and Tue / Thu 6:30pm
Participating in this six-week training series will ensure you’re ready to perform your best at the McKinney Salty Dog Triathlon June 23.
The 90-minute cycling training classes will focus on strength and stamina. We’ll be increasing the temperature in the rooms and eventually turning off the fans so everyone gets adjusted to the heat and the humidity. We’ll also discuss hydration strategy and pacing strategy so you improve your cycling performance.
Then, on Aug 24, we’ll depart as a group at the Hotter’N Hell 100 in Wichita Falls with a goal ride time of under 6 hours!
Summer Rally Readiness (60 min)
Join us for 60 minutes of intense cycling training. We will focus on building strength and speed in preparation for the remaining summer rallies and road races. The nine-week series will have you prepared to ride your best times of the season. This training will prepare you for the rolling hills, strong crosswinds, and summer Texas heat.
We will focus on building strength. This will allow you to pedal stronger and harder. You’ll need this when you’re climbing hills or pushing through a headwind. We also will build speed through high-cadence intervals. The combined focus of strength and speed will be the sweet spot of training, the results of which will coincide with some of your best bike rally results of the season.

October 7 - November 17, 2013: Pre-Season Prep!! (60 min)
ALL CLASSES NOW JUST $20 with Registration! Sign Up Today!
Everyone knows that in Texas, there is no “Off-Season”. There’s only Pre-Season, and it begins EARLY! We’ll start October off right with our Threshold Intervals, designed to help specifically with Stamina when cycling. Six weeks of this training will help in the following ways: 1) Increased Blood Plasma, so you’ll be able to move blood, nutrients, and oxygen around your system more easily. 2) Increased Mitochondrial Enzymes – these help shuttle lactate around for reprocessing as energy. 3) Improved Lactate Threshold – raise your economy so that you don’t go anaerobic too early. 4) More muscle glycogen – you’ll have more energy available when you need it! 5) Better Cardiac Output – You’ll be able to squeeze more blood every time your heart contracts, and get the good stuff where it needs to go, while getting the bad stuff pumped to the kidneys, liver, and lungs. This is by far the most important six weeks of the season. It’s the NEW definition of “Base” training, and it will set you up for great things to come in the winter and spring!
Midday Adventure Ride (120 min)
Up to two hours of tempo, rolling hills, group ride simulation or climbing. This will be a “lightly coached” 2 hour ride session.
