This FREE up-tempo 20ish mile interval ride through Paradise Valley is a great way to build bike strength with plenty of places to regroup.

What our athletes are saying…
“My challenge was following impersonal training plans was not resulting in the improvement that I wanted to see. After following a training plan from a magazine for my prep for Show Low, I experienced a brutal Deuceman bike leg, woefully unprepared! I am happy with the coaching that I have received. It doesn’t hurt that I get to spend a lot of time with my coach on bike rides!” – TC
“I see continuous improvement in my endurance, strength, technique, and speed. It’s a huge ego/confidence boost that I’m within 1-2% of run PR’s I set 15 years ago. I’m within seconds of swim PR’s that I set in high school (37 freaking years ago!). My strength and confidence on the bike is always improving.” – BAM
“The bike LT test was a real eye-opener! Being able to get on a CompuTrainer and actually “seeing” my performance was amazing feedback! I always thought that I had to train ‘hard’ most of the time to get my body in race shape. Understanding the importance of gearing-down and spending the necessary time doing the base miles was a new concept to me. Threshold testing has allowed me to train with a heart monitor–something I had never done before! It’s great to be able to monitor my training AS it happening to make sure I am staying on track.” -CM
