Jim’s Training Sessions

Jim’s Training 2019 – Organiser Richard Guymer, Hull Thursday RC. Saturdays during January and February at 2pm at Brantingham and Sproatley.

Open to everyone, no charge but cannot be run without volunteers to marshal and help with registration and lap times.

The Saturday training sessions run in two locations – Brantingham during January, Sproatley during February.

Start time is 2pm.

The format is: You are placed into a group of riders of approximately equal ability. There is an attempt to keep the groups at similar sizes of say 6-8 riders. The fastest (scratch) group goes off first, each subsequent group heads off after a minute (or so).

You are expected to work “through and off” with your group making it as smooth as possible to give your group the greatest benefit. If you are not proficient at this ask someone in your group what to do.

There is a set number of laps. There is a lap count down. If the scratch group passes your group you will complete after one less lap. If you find your group too strong and drop out then pedal easier and join the group behind.

Great training, enjoyable and suitable for any ability.

Please remember marshals are required. Take a turn or bring a helper.
