If you haven't read Arthur's Blog on riding the Haute Route head over to our website News...in the meant time here are some of his training tips.
ARTHUR’S TRAINING TIPS
How do you train for mountains when you live in or around London?
“I wouldn’t recommend just seeking out the nearest hills, because you’re only ever going to find 6 or 7 minute hill climbs. My recommendation would be to find the flattest terrain you can where you can ride sessions including uninterrupted 45-minute efforts. Do those efforts over-geared, and sitting upright. Don’t tuck down into an aerodynamic position as if you’re riding on the flat, imagine you’re riding up a hill. And if you can find a head wind, all the better. It’s about how hard your heart is working and for what length of time."
“The baseline is really just ride your bike, ride your bike, ride your bike. If you’re a keen amateur and you want to do a bigger event, just get on your bike more. Fit it into your daily routine – get up half an hour earlier and commute to work, find a longer scenic route. Just get more mileage in the legs.”
And for those who want to race and compete?
“Think about upping your high end and getting faster, rather than just comfortable. Think about hill repeats, think about structured sessions and work at doing specific intervals. Invest in a heart rate monitor so you can see your training data and how hard your body’s working.
Arthur is one of our shop ride leaders and can normally be found up to his elbows in bike parts in our workshop – come and stick your head round and say hello. ... See MoreSee Less
