Cycle Club Kingston

Jim & Lori King, co-founders Cycle Club KingstonIn 2008, together with my wife, Lori Ann King, we founded Cycle Club Kingston.

We have lead outdoor group rides during the summer months and indoor training during the winter months of New York’s Hudson Valley (November through March).

The Indoor season has been dedicated to improving the cycling condition of participants. We focus on all aspects of biking: including bike fit, pedaling efficiency, riding position, bike upgrades, weight loss, athletic performance on your bike and more. Specifically, we train on Paceline skills for drafting, climbing skills, sprinting skills, shifting, and understanding using power, heart rate & cadence as performance indicators.  We work on using your heart rate to improve performance while riding in the aerobic zone, anaerobic zone,  & intervals into the RED Zone.  We also work on recovering at effort, or getting back toward the recovery zone while maintaining 90 cadence.  We watch the Tour De France and have discussions about performance strategies that are useful to us on group rides to avoid getting dropped.  Most important, we bond socially and all improve our riding skills for the summer months to come.
