Cycle with The SAA

SAA has several different programs for cyclists:

  • Indoor cycling (spinning) sessions.  These generally run in the spring from January to March, and in the fall from October to December.  The focus is to build strength.
  • Outdoor rides.  These generally run from April to September, and are focused on building distance towards various cycling or triathlon races.

 

Indoor spinning sessions:

Indoor spin classes are run by Tanya Jones (of Bee3Fitness)  and are 2.5-3.5 hour outdoor ride simulation with a focus on building strength and stamina. Dynamic stretches included after each ride.

The sessions are held at one of our houses in Ladner or Tswwassen on Saturday mornings at 8am  (2.5-3hrs).  Note: this is the start time – arrive early to be ready to go. Email stevestonathleticassociation@gmail.com for location.

Join us after the spin on Saturday mornings for coffee and treats (please bring a breakfast or snack item to share).

What to bring: bike, trainer including rear wheel skewer, front wheel stand, large towel or yoga mat to place under your bike (MANDATORY to protect the floors),  heart rate monitor and/or bike computer, water or your favorite sports drink and your appreciation of music.

SAA Outdoor Club Rides:

Our outdoor rides during the spring and summer are free, and are led by at at least one certified community coach.  The focus of the Saturday morning rides is generally on distance.  The ride distance will vary, but will generally increase as the summer goes on.  Given that not all of our members are at the same level and/or training for the same events, generally there will be several break-out groups that may go at a different speed and not necessarily do the full posted distance (many of the routes are “out and back” so it is easy to do a shorter distance), but make sure you know the route in case you find yourself out there on your own.

Please contact us at stevestonathleticassociation@gmail.com for routes and times (typically 8 or 8:30am on Saturdays). Note: arrive early so that you have enough time to get your bike setup and ready to go.

What to bring: bike, helmet, heart rate monitor, bike computer, water and/or your favorite sports drink, adequate nutrition for the posted distance, cell phone, tire change kit, printed map (if you need one), money (if you stop at a store or for post-ride coffee).
