These free workouts are lead by Crank Cycling Coach Richard. Richard is a USAC Certified Cycling Coach specializing in Mountain Biking. Be prepared from a fun, challenging workout.

Meetup at the entrance of the San Diego Velodrome. We’ll be easy to spot, as our mountain bikes should standout quite a bit from all the track bikes. :)

This not your typical Mountain Bike ride! Workouts vary from endurance, aerobic to anaerobic including efforts to increase your lactate threshold, Vo2Max and over all just make you FITTER, FASTER and STRONGER!

This class is appropriate for riders of all levels, from true beginners to experienced racers. While the course is generally flat, have no worries, these workouts are as challenging as you’d like them to be.

Coach Richard will split the workout participants up into two groups. The beginner or Level 1 group, and the advanced or level 2 group. The level 1 group will have a challenging but less intense version of the level 2 group workouts. If the level 2 group workout is too intense, you can drop down to the level 1 effort.

The workout is free and meetup time is 5:45pm with the workout starting at 6:00pm Tuesday evenings, ending at 7:30. All you need is a mountain bike, helmet and something to drink. Meetup at the San Diego Velodrome entrance and we’ll roll over to the workout course.

Thank you!
