Our cycling training is mainly done on the road, although some athletes join the sessions on their mountain bikes. We mix our rides up between interval sessions, tempo rides and longer, easier rides.
When it comes to cycling, our first priority is safety and therefore we’ve implemented the following: a support car; front and back lights are compulsory for all riders; we ride in the mornings when the traffic is less; we choose the safest route options; we follow all the road rules.
If you’re new to cycling, we recommend starting with our beginner group where you can learn all the basics and then progress to our intermediate and advanced groups.
Our annual Tour de STS is a 120-150km supported Team Time Trial (stronger teams) or, for the beginner or intermediate participant, just a great ride. This is an event all our members look forward to! Teams consists of 10-12 riders. We sleep over at our destination and do an easy coffee ride back the next morning. This Tour is great prep for the Double Century Tour in November, where STS usually enters 4 teams: Ladies Racing team (former winners!), Mens Racing Team, Mixed Team and Social Team.
