KBC Weekly Newsletter – 6/4/14
Welcome to this week’s instalment of what has been happening at Kirsty Broun Cycling!
KBC Inaugural Tour of Tassie – March 28th – April 6th
A group of sixteen excited KBCers experienced the inaugural Tour of Tassie, basing ourselves in my home town of Spreyton, which is just outside of Devonport. We rode between 70-120km per day, dependent on the terrain – we explored the coastline from Devonport to Burnie, experienced the NRS Women’s Mersey Valley Tour route and overcame the ultimate challenge in riding from Devonport to Cradle Mountain. However, once at Cradle Mountain, we were able to achieve a little more “balance” in our holiday with spa massages, wine and cheese tasting evenings, a visit to a Tasmanian Devil Sanctuary and plenty more.
From the beautiful highlands of Cradle Mountain to the amazing coastline, the Tour spent its final days based at Hawley Beach. A truly beautiful spot that made the long rides all the more worth it.
I will leave you with some pictures of our experience – words simply cannot describe what an amazing experience it was!
Training – the week that wasn’t(!)
The week before we left for Tasmania was unseasonally wet and no planned rides were able to be held this week. This meant a few extra wind trainer/Wattbike sessions were scheduled with most KBC riders getting stuck into an indoor session or two during this week.
Training – April Group Program
The April Group Training Program is now available. Click here to see a schedule. April’s schedule blends an exciting mix of performance training, focusing on specific skills such as power climbs, time trialling and sprinting with a selection of Audax events, culminating in the Noosa 160km ride on 27th April. If you would like to ride with the Kirsty Broun team please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Wattbike training sessions
KBC runs Wattbike training sessions at Urban Rowing, West End on Wednesdays at 12.15pm and 6.30pm and Thursdays at 5.30pm. They have been incredibly popular and are highly beneficial for improving both aerobic and anaerobic fitness as well as peak power output and mean power output – which means a better performance on the bike! However you need to book your session at least 48 hours in advance. You can do this by emailing me at email@example.com. If you would like to book a standing weekly appointment, this can also be arranged.
Women’s Skills and Development Program – Balmoral Cycling Club
Women’s Cycling Skills and Development Program resumes this Saturday at Murrarie Crit track from 11.30-1pm. Cost is $15.00 and women, particularly beginners are encouraged to join. Learn skills to help you be a better and safer rider on the road and learn how to use your bike to become fitter, faster and stronger!
Important Notice – One on One Skills Sessions
Due to some new and exciting developments with KBC in the next month, I will not taking on any one-on-one skills sessions. However, if anyone wants help with skills, KBC has a team of coaches that would be able to assist you. Please make an inquiry through www.kirstybroun.com and I will allocate you a skills coach to assist you with your development.
Until next week, be skilled, be safe and keep smiling,
