If you're answering yes to a lot of these questions, you'll love the B-SIG 10-week Progressive Training & Cycling Skills series for 2013!
The B-SIG is devided into 3 different pace levels:
B-16 pace − progresses from a 40-mile ride at 14mph on the first ride, to a 70-mile ride (with an option to do 100 miles) at 16mph by early May.
B-17 pace − progresses from a 45-mile ride at 15mph on the first ride, to a 95-mile ride(with an option to do 105 miles) at 17mph by early May.
B-18 pace − progresses from a 45-mile ride at 16mph on the first ride, to a 95-mile ride (with an option to do 105 miles) at 18mph by early May.
When you sign up for the B-SIG you do not chose your pace level. Your leaders will assign you to an appropriate level based on a 4-lap ride around Central Park on week 1.
The New York Cycle Club and the B-SIG are committed to making our group rides as safe as possible. The B-SIG will emphasize safe cycling habits. We urge you to review Bicycle Safe, an informative website for cyclists.
