Ultra-cycling + Randonneuring Event
November 5, 2016 at 9:00 am - 10:30 am
We’ll be having some very special ultra-cyclists visiting our office for an overview of ultra endurnace and randoneuring bicycling. Conmfirmed riders to attend include:
* Pete Kent, who most recently raced in the 2016 Race Across Oregon (RAO)
* Glenn Johnson- veteran RAO finisher, coach, and founder of the Lewis & Clark Ultra
Ultra-enduance bicyclists take distance cycling to extreme levels, often riding for 24 to 48hours straight on little to no sleep, covering disances of 250 to 500miles (or more!) in this time period.
We’ll touch on basic concepts of training, bike fit, nutrition, sleep deprivation, and mental challenges facing these riders- with some time for q/a.
**Depending on weather**, we may have a small, no-drop group bike ride following as time allows.. Hope to see you there!
