Hosted by the Uxbridge Cycling Club, SMITE (Saturday Morning Interval Training Exercise) is a 50-60 min no-drop group ride spiked by a rotating mix of short to long Strava segments. Finding it hard to train more than 4 hours per week? Interval training is a proven format for dynamic power gains over short periods of time. SMITE will incorporate a mix of Sweet Spot, Threshold and VO2Max efforts to hammer your legs into finely sculpted PYTHONS.
VHIIT (Variable High Intensity Interval Training) FORMAT Each Interval is a Strava segment race against the clock for the best chip time, and we’ll have 4-5 per ride.
Intervals will add up to around 30% of the overall ride each week. Once at the end of the interval, wait to let your fellow SMITErs regroup. This is only NO-DROP ride between intervals. Maintain a pace of ~30 km/hr in between intervals and 2.5 watts/kg up hills. The ride leader will call out the Strava segments as you approach them, so stay close.
