Training for the Ride:

Training for a long-distance cycling event like the MS Bike Leduc to Camrose  requires a combination of endurance, strength, and mental resilience. Here are some tips to help you prepare for the journey ahead:

Start Slow: If you’re new to cycling or haven’t been on the bike in a while, start with shorter rides and gradually increase your mileage over time. Aim for a mix of shorter, high-intensity rides and longer, steady-state rides to build both endurance and strength

Set Realistic Goals: Whether you’re aiming to complete the full route or simply want to enjoy the ride, set realistic goals for yourself and work towards them steadily. Break your training into manageable chunks and celebrate your progress along the way

Focus on Strength and Endurance: Incorporate strength training exercises into your routine to build muscle strength and improve power output on the bike. Squats, lunges, and core exercises are particularly beneficial for cyclists

Practice Hills and Terrain: You will encounter  hilly terrain riding between Leduc and Camrose (and back!), make sure to incorporate hill repeats and hill climbs into your training to prepare your legs and lungs for the challenge. Practice riding in different conditions, including wind and rain, to prepare for any weather conditions on event day

Fuel Your Body: Proper nutrition is essential for fueling your rides and supporting your training efforts. Eat a balanced diet rich in carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats, and stay hydrated before, during, and after your rides

Rest and Recovery: Don’t forget to prioritize rest and recovery in your training plan. Listen to your body and take rest days when needed to prevent overtraining and reduce the risk of injury.
