Natural Interval Training


I have always avoided any sort of formal cycling training. I just have little desire to do the sort of regimented sessions that I read about in training books.

Luckily, around Geneva the hilly roads are perfect for interval training.

Today, Martin and I did a typical two hour ride through the country side and vineyards on nice quiet roads. The road is rarely flat with several steep climbs of varying lengths. For a good interval circuit it’s just a question of attacking each hill and relaxing in between.

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.

  1. Ahhh, to be in Switzerland! I could ride while my wife and sons run up and down the hills and sing!
    It does sound like a great training ride. Hope the diet is going well. I need to buckle down… maybe I should give myself a challenge like you have.
