Current Training Goals

This week we are developing BASE.

Base is a training phase to activate your cycling muscles and develop your cardio vascular system. All riding should be within a 60-70% heart-rate zone, not exceeding 80%.

Regular riding, moderate distances, there is no need to be climbing!

A 10 Year Celebration

Many riders rejoin the peloton for the milestone year and there are some new riders in 2020 too. Bikestyle Tours is coaching the Chain Reaction Queensland riders for a fifth consecutive year. Our mission is to prepare riders to be able to enjoy the 1000km, importantly to:

  • ride safely in a group
  • encourage camaraderie
  • improve physical being; health, energy, nutrition and core strength

Our training program brings riders together regularly and helps maintain their fundraising focus for the charity partners. We’re amazed by the individual fundraising efforts of all riders and how their own families support their contribution to an incredible foundation and its charities.

It’s our pleasure to be Chain Reaction Queensland coaches for another year.

2020 Ride Course

The 2020 ride follows the spectacular coastline of northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, similar to the inaugural Queensland ride. While the scenery delights, the rough roads will challenge riders. The penultimate day presents the biggest climb of the journey, over Tomewin before entering Queensland. A few roads in the Great Dividing Range will also challenge riders throughout the week.
