Training Tips

  Training Tips

To get you pumped and ready for the MS Gong Ride we have had a few close friends spill their cycling secrets to help prepare you for this epic ride. Now as much as we would love to, we can’t hold your hand along the course so make sure you are prepared to make the distance and enjoy the spectacular scenery along the way. Most people can complete the ride without specific training, though a little more fitness and time on the bike before-hand can only ever be a good thing.

Keep an eye on this page as there will be lots more tips and videos to come as we get closer to the event!
