Walden Velo riders compete in World Championships

Donna Dale and John Calvert spent the bank holiday weekend competing in UCI Grand Fondo World Championships in Albi, France. To qualify to ride in the race both had posted excellent times in the recent Tour of Cambridge. The 97km race on Sunday in the heat of Southern France resulted in Donna finishing 23rd out of 72 in the 45-50 age group (4th British rider home out of 33 in that age group) and John finishing 71st out of 168 in the 60 to 64 age group (5th out of 45 British riders in the group). A great achievement - the "mortal" members of the club look forward to their return and hearing the full story.

Carver Training Sessions

During the summer on Thursday evenings, Walden Velo has access to the airfield at Carver Barracks for specialised training sessions.

It's a great opportunity to learn how to improve your endurance, strength and speed, as well as the fundamentals of how to ride safely in a group.

Sessions start at 7:00pm and riders can choose between a road or off-road workout.

 


Road

The road sessions involve anything from chaingang riding techniques, assorted interval routines, to sprint leadout practise.

 


MTB

The mountain bike course is of national  level quality and used in 2017 for the eastern regional championship round of Mud, Sweat and Gears.

Hope to see you there!
