Bethany Bike Repair is starting two weekly road rides from Bethany Village Centre.

The first ride will start tomorrow and every Sunday at 8:30am. This will be a 3 hour ride best suited for intermediate level cyclists. We will be riding all over the West side of Portland through the hills and country. We will pick roads where we can ride in a structured formation (pace lines) with varying pace levels.

The next ride will start this Tuesday and every Tuesday at noon. This fast-paced DROP RIDE is open to all levels & all teams. Test your strength and stamina against some of Portland’s top cyclists. The ride will last 90-120 minutes and will encompass a lot of area throughout the west side of Portland. We will meet under the clock in Bethany Village Centre between Bethany Bike Repair and Sherrie Weitzel Interiors. Be ready to get smoked!

Power Cycling Class in NW Portland

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

Fellow cyclists… It is time to get serious about switching gears and getting into race training mode. it is time to add some intensity to your winter pre-season rides. CycleOne Racing Academy is conducting indoor power cycling classes at Bethany Bike Repair in Bethany Village. We are offering free trial rides on Monday, January 2nd and Tuesday, January 3rd.


These are neither spin classes nor group sessions on rollers while watching cycling videos. This is the real deal! This is the best way to improve your power and recharge your system for the 2017 road season. Experts agree that you should have 2 high intensity workouts weekly. Although you may be spending long hours in the saddle this winter, that does not get the job done. You must train smarter!

This is a progressive power development program using computer technology to measure and record your cycling power output. So you also get the benefit of FTP testing. These are training sessions using CompuTrainer Multi-Rider technology for structured power workouts in a group setting. It is real power cycling on your own bike with video enhancement and motivating music. Not only will you gain an understanding of your power capacity, you will train to improve your power to weight ratio. You will improve your ability to time trial as well as climb.

Here is a link to a video from one of the coaches at Carmichael Training Systems. Check it out…

The program will run for 10 weeks, and the first session begins on January 10th. Classes are limited to 4 riders so you will get plenty of personal attention, with a focus on correct biomechanics and power targeted training. Each session lasts for 60 minutes. Classes are available on Tuesday and Thursday evening 6:15-7:15PM & 7:30-8:30 PM. 10-week programs start at $200 for one session/week.
