What to know
Join us Monday evening for a 6:30 pm departure at the Burlington Beach Pavillion (parking is available). You can expect a tempo paced flat ride out to Fifty Road. You have the option of climbing the challenging fifty Road hill to the escarpment or can take a break and join the group on the return ride. The temperature can be a few degrees cooler because on the waterfront ride but is always beautiful. In the fall we will begin earlier to capture the daylight.
Join us at 656 Old York Road for a 6:30 pm start. The club will set up a transition zone to create a race experience. You will have the opportunity to rack your bike and set up your gear to simulate a transition zone. The bike portion is a 5 km loop with some hills. The run portion is a flat 1km or 3km loop. Each week will have a different workout explained to you by our head coach Greg Pace. This is a great opportunity to practice your transitions from bike to run while working out with other athletes.
We begin our open water training at Gulliver’s Lake Park at 792 Safari Rd. As members of TCoB you are exempt from the $6 entry fee. As the season progresses we will move our workouts to Beachway Park on Lake Ontario. *Please note for safety we require all TCoB swimmers are identified by wearing a TCoB swim cap. If you do not have one they will be available for $5 cash.
Our track work outs are at Central High Track, 1433 Baldwin St. (just off of Brant St.) Each week a different workout will be provided to help you increase your speed and fitness level. A focus of these coached sessions are on form and efficiency.
See the sun rise every Friday for our interval work out. These are flat or hilly short bursts on the bike to help increase your bike speed. Two locations are available for the flats at the east end or hills at the west end of the city. Challenge yourself and race a friend at this workout.
Saturday workouts will occur about once a month to get you race ready. A full schedule can be found in the calendar. There you can find the location of the workout and what to expect each day. The workouts will be race simulations designed for the local upcoming race.
