Come and Join Team CLS for one of our weekend HIGH C CAT Drum ‘n’ Base club ride to put some distance in those legs and deliver a good solid endurance session for you where the leader will Av. around 2.5w/kg by the end of the event. On this one our B and C CAT regulars ride together and support each other. It’s also your chance to represent your Zwift Team as we allow riders to wear a kit of their choice, we welcome you all. Pace 2.5 to 2.7 w/kg TEMPO, Approx. 3.2 to 3.5 w/kg CLIMBING
This also one of our weekly Team CLS social events, so a lot of chatting and support given to keep the group together as much as possible. We may throw in comfort or drink stops in the event to also allow a regroup if the leader feels it’s required.
If you are a ‘B’ CAT looking for a tough workout we suggest you go elsewhere this is all about Teamwork and the Zwift Fence will be used at the leader’s discretion. But be WARNED please think carefully about joining if you cannot hold these w/kg, as the leader cannot slow repeatedly at the expense of other riders in the group. The leader will build structure into the ride and / or introduce real life situations as well to help break up the ride and keep everyone entertained. We also mix the courses up, so it’s never always flat or never always hilly, there is method in our madness!
If you are having a bad day, and you do find yourself dropped do not feel beat up, try to complete the course and hook up with other riders who may be behind you or message those around to see if they want to ride at a slightly reduced pace. It is impossible to find a level to suit all so on a long ride like this some splits are inevitable hence we apologize in advance. You will get stronger week by week, so come and join us and make the most of having the course to ourselves!!!!
From experience this 2 to 2 ½ hours session is a long time on a Turbo so do not be lulled into a false sense of security at the start, if you are new to indoor training, you will be tired at the end.
We sometimes have a designated climb during the ride where we have a ‘FREE FOR ALL!’. You can climb that one as quick as you want, but the leader will ask you to slow after we crest in that situation until they are satisfied the group is back together. If you are ahead, please look out for these instructions. We may also drop the fence in the ride if a stronger group want to go off the front and ride a higher pace to the finish.
Although we don’t have official SWEEPERS on this ride you will probably be accompanied by members of our famous ‘ORANGE ARMY’, members of TEAM CLS CC who are dedicated to their vocation of helping others. If you have had a drop out or accidently hit a wrong key, type ‘HELP’ and if on the ride they will come back and help you back to the group. Too often they come back to find people either running intervals at the back or simply ending their ride, so you must type ‘HELP’ so we know you need support! No cry for ‘HELP’ and we leave you in peace to finish the ride at your own pace.
Members of the ‘ORANGE ARMY’ can be recognized by their Team CLS Kit with long Orange Socks, oh and long serving members (Level 25) will also be wearing an Orange Cap and will be riding a lovely Orange Tron bike if they have unlocked it. PLEASE TAKE NOTE, all you need to do is type ‘HELP’ and will do our best to draft you back to the main group. We will not come back if you are simply unable to hold the ride pace, we are there to support technical issues.
SWEEPER SUPPORT SUMMARY
1. If you have a technical issue or have accidently pressed a wrong button that has caused you to drop off the back and you are struggling to get back just type – ‘HELP.
2. Do not ask us to come back and support you if you are unable to hold the described pace as we must maintain this regardless of casualties.
3. If you don’t type ‘HELP’ we won’t send the Orange Army back automatically … you have been warned. (Practice your in Ride typing skills in advance)
