Alabama Wheelmen Winter Training Plan

This will be one option for our riders as a Winter Training Schedule for the Alabama Wheelmen.  John Ortiz will be leading the large team rides as well and Sally Chu/Steve Swann will be leading some of our winter training series.  If you would like to sign up to lead a ride that is open please let Clint Johns know,  You call the ride, start time and location as long as it meets the criteria of the chart below.  This chart was developed by Stuart Lamp and designed to help you build your base for the upcoming year.  It will be added to0 with updated start locations and times so be sure to keep a check on this page as we continue throughout the year.  If you miss a ride then its up to you to make it up somehow either on the road or on the trainer.  We won’t all be able to make all of these, but the more of these you complete the better off your camp and 2018 will be.  Some of these rides may be a converted to trainer rides when the weather turns poor or shifted to a Sunday PM.  Stick to the plan, build your base this winter so we can come out strong next year.  When you complete your training ride tag it.  AWTS #1, AWTS #2, etc so we can keep up with who is putting in the work.
