Regular cycle training takes place on Saturdays leaving from Hayley Green (Hayley Green Roundabout A456) Halesowen at 9.30am or the Wychbury Inn at Hagley (just after lights at foot of Hagley Hill A456) at 9.40am. Wednesday Evening meet at 7.00pm or 7.10pm. Routes vary in distance taking in the lanes of North Worcestershire. Regular routes used include Hagley, Churchill, Blakedown, Harvington, Chaddesley Corbett, Drayton, Belbroughton, Bromsgrove, Dodford, Fairfield and Romsley. The shorter routes are around 15 miles, the longer routes closer to 30 miles. The routes are undulating with some challenging ‘climbs’.We are planning some more sprint and transition training and some longer rides over the summer.

Do ensure that your bike is in good condition and serviced and that you have the appropriate clothing to suit the conditions. It is always sensible to carry drinks and chocolate, or gels when out. Do look at the training tips for cycling.

Bike Hill Repeats

It’s critical that you go into the bike leg strong and ready to make your ride roll as fast as it looks. One of the best workouts for developing bike-specific strength is a bike hill repeat.
