Those interested in training guidance for an upcoming cycling event or those looking to work on their cycling endurance might be interested in the Family YMCA’s Endurance Training for Cyclists Class.

Each class will have a two-hour riding component and a half-hour of core conditioning. In addition, the following topics will be discussed:  

• Proper bike fit, clothing and equipment

• Nutrition and hydration

• Aches and pains — preventing them and what to do if you have them

• Weekly training recommendations and how to design your own training plan.

 Classes begin Jan. 20 and run through April 14 (12 – 2 ½ hour classes) and will be from 9:30 a.m.-noon Sundays. The fee is $130 for YMCA Members and $170 for Program Members. Online registration is available.
