Message from Coach Solomon:
Heroes! We are in the final stretch. Put in some good miles during the week, and a moderate effort this weekend. Its been so long since we have ridden together, but the individual strength and training you've put in has paid off. This weekend take some time to ride about 1/2 as far as you are planning to ride on the 20th. It would be a good opportunity to ride the first 1/4 of your route, check on your stop or support locations and any construction going on. Throughout next week, make sure to drink enough water (your weight in ounces is a good goal), get balanced meals and make sure you are feeling well for the ride.
As always reach out if you want help with routes!
Train indoors on the Huntsman Ride routes using Rouvy! The Huntsman Ride routes have been uploaded on Rouvy and is a great training too for both seasoned and amateur riders. Rouvy is a paid platform, but if you enjoy the convenience of an indoor training, it’s a great option for a scenic ride. .
How to set up Rouvy before your first ride:
Rouvy can be used in two ways, both of which are compatible with our Huntsman Ride virtual routes. The 'RouvyAR' app supports group rides, similar to Zwift, and requires use of a trainer or bike equipped with a Watt-based power sensor. The 'Rouvy Workouts' app does not support group rides, but does not require a power sensor. Instead, Rouvy Workouts can connect to a speed sensor, such as the Wahoo Speed. In RouvyAR, cyclists can add sensors using the button at the top right, while in Rouvy Workouts, the button is in the bottom of the window, near the middle. Be sure the device is on and active, so Rouvy can see it.
Long term use of Rouvy also requires a subscription (~$8/month), but the app allows unlimited riding during a 10 day trial period beginning after your first ride of more than 5 minutes. For those riders who wish to avoid the subscription payment, it may be best to download and start using Rouvy no sooner than Thursday, June 11.

Cycling Training Routes
5-10 mile options:
- I recommend taking the kids out and do a few laps around the neighborhood. Explore some roads you've never ridden.
- If you don't have kiddo's, then pick a direction and do an out-and-back.
