Practice Schedule & Routes
Spring 2014 Training Schedule:
**Practice times have changed. Look at the calendar (http://triathlon.tamu.edu/calendar) for the new practice times.
Trainer rides will be at 'zebra shack'. We have a few team trainers available on a first come first serve basis. 'Zebra Shack' location will be announced via Listserv.
New 20K TT Course [12.52 miles]: http://connect.garmin.com/course/4581725 - Note: The time trial course turnaround point will be at the yellow "STOP AHEAD" just before the 4-way stop. We will meet at the central baptist church parking lot closest to Elmo Weedon Rd.
Trainer rides will be at the Zebra Shack beginning 6PM! We have a couple team-owned trainers that are given on a first come first ride basis. Don't know what a trainer ride is? Click here.
We will meet at the front of the REC at 4:30pm to carpool to Lake Bryan. Don't be late! You can also meet us at Lake Bryan.
See calendar for the route of the week.
Our Saturday long rides will feature two groups: a no-drop group and a faster group. The no-drop group is what it means, nobody will be left behind. The no-drop group will most likely only bike a portion of the overall route (turning around some point in the middle). If you want to be in the faster group, make sure you learn the route for the day in case you get dropped. Be prepared to average 18-20 mph in the faster group.
