This will be an open ride session using the erg video software.  The workouts will be course simulations including tempo, climbing and group rides.   This will be an more laid back and independent session. Registration is required and we will set you up at the start of the session based on that.  There will be a coach onsite but it will not be a structured interval class.

The session will be 90 minutes long, although you are welcome to come at anytime and stay as long as you want or use it to get in some extra time before or after class.  
 
Riders new to CCD please arrive 15 minutes early so we can get you set up and help explain the workout.  
 
Veteran riders may arrive at any time but are expected to be able to set themselves up and calibrate their trainers on their own.
