Your next event?
The Bowral Classic
Looking for your next event to keep you motivated through winter? It doesn’t get much better than the Bowral Classic – a new NSW Gran Fondo event offering 160km, 90km or 25km road cycling through the gorgeous Southern Highlands on October 23.
Here’s how Giant Sydney can help you get ready to ride come Spring
(an interview by the Bowral Classic events team):
“The Bowral Classic has a 160km max distance, what are some ways Giant Sydney can help entrants prepare for the event?
For an endurance event like the Bowral Classic, you want to make sure you are as comfortable and efficient on your bicycle as possible. This is where a professional bike fit can work wonders. Get your cycling position assessed at Giant Sydney from just $99.
If you’re thinking you might be due for a bicycle upgrade, take a look at our monthly specials or come in and talk to us about putting together a package for you.
A few key items of gear can also make a big difference to how at home you feel on the bike. Investing in a quality pair of bib shorts, padded gloves, cycling jersey with pockets (and maybe some anti-chafing chamois cream) are our recommended essentials.
Heading into winter, motivation can be tricky. That’s where having some mates to do those longer rides with can really help. Take a look at our free monthly Giant Sydney classic rides or joining the Giant Cycling Club Sydney to keep you on track. Or really level up your training with a personal training program from our in-house coaching service.
It’s a good idea to test out your nutrition before the big event. We recommend buying a few different gels, bars and electrolytes from our cycling specific range to check what works for you during training.
You want to make sure everything goes smoothly for the big day, so pop a note in your diary to book your bike in for servicing a week or two beforehand – you’ll feel the difference.
