2021 Winter Secret Training

Winter is a great time to get stronger and build a foundation the coming season.  For developing athletes, we like to emphasize off-the-bike sports and strength building in the winter to keep your body well balanced and your mind fresh before restarting on-the-bike training in late winter/ early spring. Experts agree that specializing in one sport 12 months a year is not healthy for development. So we’ve created a 7-week program called “Secret Training” to help you be a well-rounded athlete while working toward your goals on the bike.

At some practices you’ll hike or trail run or play team sports. Other days might be agility work or team building games. Every day will include strength training. There will be no on-the-bike training, but older athletes can ask their coach about blending in bike rides.

The program is divided into two levels: Grades 5-7 (one day/week) and Grades 8-12 (two days/week). We’ll meet at various outdoor locations in Boulder.

We’ll use a variety of Covid protocols including group sizes of 10 or less, cohorts, masks, distancing, and no indoor activities. During the past 8 months we’ve gained lots of experience managing the risks of Covid, and have a good track record. Read the BJC Covid protocols.

Space is strictly limited and we’ll have a waitlist. BJC reserves the right to select athletes or limit numbers to create groups of similar age and ability. Registration does not guarantee a spot. Contact us if financial aid would be helpful.

*Please note that indoor strength training at Revo will not be offered this winter due to Covid. High School aged riders who are targeting early season National Level Races, or high-level goals for February and March, contact Coach Joe to help set up a strength training program to best fit your needs. High-school aged riders that do not meet the above criteria can participate in Secret Training.

2021 Winter Bike Maintenance Class Cancelled

Due to Covid we will not be offering bike maintenance this season.

For those looking for bike maintenance education there are several YouTube channels and online courses you can take. The Park Tools Channel, if you have a specific repair you are working on, is exceedingly good.  Bicycling Magazine also has a series of videos that are very useful for basic repairs. For online courses there are many out there.  We haven’t vetted any of these, so are unsure of the quality of the program, but they are fairly low cost and allow you to learn at your own pace. Here’s a fee-based online course, but we have not checked it out in depth.
