Both Inner Ring and Outer Ring sessions on Saturday 9th April will be a Distance Challenge on road bikes.
For those who haven’t taken part in a Distance Challenge before it’s a time trial on the track where we set the riders off individually at 30 second intervals and they complete a set number of laps, depending on age group, in as short a time as possible.
U8 (born 2014 and younger) – 6 laps
U10 (2012, 2013) – 12 laps
U12 (2010, 2011) – 18 laps
All Outer Ring riders – 10 miles
Remember this is an individual time trial and not a bunch race and slipstreaming is not allowed. It’s a tough activity but it gives riders a useful benchmark to track their progress against over time, PLUS it allows us to now calculate our Most Improved Riders for the end of season awards. Previous results are available on our Distance Challenge page, just click the link to the Inner Ring or Outer Ring sheet depending on which session you attend.
The weather forecast is looking good tomorrow. Please make sure the riders have a drink and a snack with them.
