Saturday's Miscellaneous Musings

Are you wondering what you can buy that special someone for the upcoming holiday season? 
Are you wondering how you could get stronger during a typical Buffalo, NY winter where bike riding outside is not always a fun or safe endeavor?

There are 2 options at Tom's Pro Bike:

#1 - 2013 Indoor Racing at Tom’s Pro Bike

We have a brand new training room in our new building and starting January 14, 2013 there will be a new Tom’s Pro Bike Indoor Racing Series.  Some significant changes have been made for the upcoming winter series!

New for the 2013 Indoor Race Series
  • Brand NEW Training Room – equipped with 7 CompuTrainer Stations
  • More Racing with an Additional Series
  • Increased # of Races per Series
  • Increased # of Time Slots per week
  • Training Room Rental
Erg Video Training Sessions (through Plan2Peak)

Racing Series Calendar

This year we are expanding our racing calendar by offering 2 separate race series to get you through the entire off-season.
  • Race Series #1 (Fall) will run from 10/8/12 – 12/22/12
  • Race Series #2 (Winter) will run from 1/14/13 – 3/23/13

    We are going to a slightly different format for the racing this year based on racer feedback.
  • Each race will take place over a 1 week period (instead of 2)
  • Each race series will consist of 10 races (instead of 8)
8 Races will count toward final results

During the first week of the series (January 14-20), athletes will have the option to ride our test program and take advantage of our functional threshold testing by, Nationally Recognized Coach with Distinction, Peter Cummings. This test will enable Coach Cummings to give you a custom Power Zone Chart. This chart will allow you to chose your optimal pacing throughout the series.

Time Slots

To accommodate for the shortened races we will offer more time slots. The races will take place at the following times:
Monday & Friday – 4:00 , 5:30 
Tuesday & Thursday– 4:00, 5:30, 7:00 
Saturday – 9:00, 10:30, 12:00, 1:30

We are offering expanded training options this year in addition to our Indoor Race Series. For those of you who cannot partake in the entire series or want more indoor training, we have the following options.
