On May 28th, Mike and I are planning on riding the 40 mile Hopewell route for pace line training with a goal of 18-20mph. The goal of this ride is to maintain a smooth and sustained pace line and the plan is to take 30-45 second pulls, road conditions permitting. We want to work on smooth pull throughs when the leader comes off the front to allow them a chance to get back on instead of the next rider increasing the speed rapidly. While this may seem like a fast pace, in a smooth paceline it is easy to maintain.
Would you consider on having more of this training thru out the summer for the ones that can't make this one. I sure could use any training I can get?
The plan is to do them several times because we know some people won't be able to make this one and we want to be able to offer this as many times as possible.
Just a reminder for those that are interested that this is still a go, weather permitting.
