In April, I went to Tucson, Arizona on a cycling vacation. Prior to that trip, my last ride outdoors was 6 months previous, and 100% of my training was indoors. I was still able to ride my bike up a 25-mile mountain. I ascribe my fitness to periodized, targeted training in indoor cycling classes and on my stationary bike at home. Hey guys…this stuff works!
The 2015 Paris-Roubaix is April 12th—why not get your riders ready now? You are going to LOVE this profile from last year! We looked to someone who is a fanatic about the Spring Classics bicycle races and is also an exceptional indoor cycling instructor, Matt Scheffer. Put the two together and you have an emotional, challenging, fun profile. This race is so full of history and drama, you can’t help but have a great time as you visualize the pavé (the rugged cobbled sections of the brutal 160-mile race).
