Activ Ladies Program
Sunday, 27th September 2015 (almost 3 years ago)

Program Goal: To have more women riding, more confidently, and more often in a safe, supportive and social environment.

Who can participate: To keep our sessions running smoothly, ladies should be able to complete a river loop at around 24km/h average. This level of fitness will allow our coaches to keep the group together. If you're unsure, please give us a call or email and we can help you make the decision - or provide some options on participating.

Once the riders are into the main skills component, we can handle a greater variation in speed.

Weather: We will generally run indoor sessions if it is raining. Please check Facebook or the website after 4:30am.

Injuries and Fitness: We will be evaluating rider fitness and injuries to ensure that the later weeks build on early weeks without stressing riders back to injury.

Feedback: PLEASE provide feedback - we want your experience to be awesome.

Week 1 - 28th September - Corso

Target Effort: Dornoch Tce

Week 2 - 5th October - Corso (Public Holiday)

Join the regulars of the ladies ride at 6:30am for a recovery river loop and a coffee afterwards.

Activ coaches are all resting, so there won't necessarily be any of our coaches on this ride.

Week 3 - 12th October - Corso

For ladies riding in the Lifecycle criterium we will go through race mechanics (i.e. what to expect and how to counter it - the Women's D grade race is like a river loop (and the ladies in this grade are lovely) - but a few tips and tricks will help you avoid getting dropped after the prime)

For ladies NOT riding in the Lifecycle criterium, you will be riding a slightly different program that emphasises technical skills over higher-speeds and efforts.

Target Effort: Corso Loop

Week 4 - 19th October - St Peters

Target Effort: Gladstone Rd

Week 5 - 26th October - Corso

Target Effort: St Peters Hill

Week 6 - 2nd November - Corso

Target Effort: Cemetary Hill
