Donegal Bay Cycling Club

Turbo Training returned on Wednesday 26th October at 7.30 pm at the rear of the St John Bosco, Donegal Town.

Once again the club will fund this winter programme for all paid up members. We are delighted that Kevin McGlynn will take the helm on these nights which will be progressive over the Winter.

Indoor cycling training can be dull and limiting, but it need not be. Not only can you stay fit when the worst weather hits, but you can actually enhance your fitness by working on elements that you would not get outdoors, and adding some much needed variety for optimal performance.

Food for thought, and all the more reason to get organised.

Turbo trainers are now an established staple training tool for any keen road cyclist, and when compared to your typical ‘gym bike’, one of the obvious benefits is that by bolting your bike in, you are training your muscles very specifically for the position you will use on the road.

Once on your turbo there is no respite either; pedalling continues uninterrupted by the urban environment and traffic, which can create a lot of ’dead time’ on the road, especially if you have to incorporate your training into a commute.

Sunday spins are going well again, with three groups to choose from leaving at 9am from Donegal Town and Ballyshannon on alternate Sundays, check our Facebook page for more info.
