The Intermediate cycling group is for returning Kits Energy riders and new riders with at least a few years of group riding experience.
For 2018, you can register for any of the 4 Intermediate groups depending on your speed. Please note that once the season begins, if you feel that you have chosen the wrong group please contact your Coach or Kristina and they will move you to a more appropriate group.
Intermediate #1 on Tuesday
This group will be the slowest of the Intermediate groups but is NOT a beginner program. These will be focused workouts, building on technique, strength and speed. If you are still a bit nervous around other riders, this is a good group for you as you are not required to ride in close proximity to each other.
Intermediate #2 on Wednesday
This is a faster group than the Int #1 and everyone must be comfortable riding in a pace line and in close proximity to one another.
Intermediate #3 on Thursday
This group should be able to hold a pace of 27-30k + and be comfortable training in small groups in close proximity to each other. Good bike handling skills and group riding skills are a must.
Intermediate #4 on Thursday
This is a new group for 2018. Ideally, the #3 and #4 groups should be riding at the same speed. All riders in this group must also be comfortable riding in close proximity to each other at fast speeds.

Where do we meet for our sessions?
Every session will have a different starting location, all in the Kitsilano or UBC area. You will receive the exact location for each workout at the beginning of each month and will receive a weekly email as a reminder.
How long are the sessions?
Each session starts promptly at 6:30pm and will finish between 7:30 and 7:45pm.
Do we ride in the rain?
Due to the fact that we live in a rainforest we may modify the workout for safety reasons but club rides are never cancelled unless there is thunder and lightening.
