Argonaut Cycle Coaching – Women’s Only – Coach for a Day session – March 1st

Have you every wondered what it would be like to have your own personal coach on race day? Well here is your chance and one of the best courses that Canberra has to offer.


Session information

While group rides and other training sessions are great ways to build  your fitness and develop skills, there are a whole range of other skills  and knowledge that will help you get best possible result on race day.  One of the key roles of a cycling coach is to provide important race day  advice on the course, terrain, weather, warm up, tactics, nutrition and  hydration. Additionally, one of the best ways to improve your  performance is to review how things went after the race. This can also  be a great way to get  ntroduced to road racing as you will have access  to a coach who will take you through all the things you need to know.

Our ‘Coach for a Day’ session will be held in conjunction with the  Canberra Cycling Club road race  https://www.canberracyclingclub.org.au/events/> being held at the Uriarra Homestead course. The session will bookend the race and is designed to provide for all of your race day coaching needs without having to pay for a full time coach. Just rock up ready to go and we will take care of the rest!

The session will include:

  • Pre-race day course information, weather updates and advice on nutrition requirements
  • Pre-race course reconnaissance highlighting the key sections of the course
  • Structured warm up routine
  • Assistance with race registration
  • Post race review
  1. When*: Saturday 1st March 2014.

As the race is a CA affiliated club race this session on only open to members of CA affiliated clubs (my apologies to ACT Vets riders).
