Once again, credit for this ride belongs to Patrick Schutte. He does an incredible job of crafting rides that mimic the terrain of some of the greatest races in the world. This one is no exception. It is a tough push through the hills of France. There are five mountain passes that are challenging, to say the least. A downhill after each provides an opportunity for recovery. Riders will maintain heart rates in the Strength Zone (75-85%). If you choose, you can let the heart drop more significantly in the recoveries, creating a nice Interval Ride instead. This is a fun one, and you won’t be disappointed!
The goal of the ride is to increase power and climbing ability. We’ll be building muscular strength and endurance. This ride mimics the 15th Stage of the 2007 TDF which takes us the through the Haute Garonne and back in to the Pyrennees and through five mountain passes that will challenge riders, but they will have a chance to recover (slightly or more if you choose) on the short downhills.
Sorry to make you download something, but it really is easier to read in a full attachment!! Here it is:
