Tuesday Night Sprints

 
Day:
Tuesday's, 6:15 PM (Racing Season)
Location:
Spokes Etc. (Quaker Lane Store), Alexandria, VA (google map)
Duration:
1:45
Type:
Coach Jeff Watts (or in his absence John Petrakis) leads the ride from Spokes Etc on Quaker Lane down to Eisenhower Ave. We do two or three laps (out and back on Eisenhower) of the sprint course and return to the store by 8pm. There are 2 designated sprints per lap, one 150m uphill the other a 2.3km flat finish. After each sprint, the pace is reduced to recovery/regrouping speed. Attacking in between sprint zones is frowned upon. As this is an out-and-back type course there is always an opportunity to get back in with the group as they return.
Distance:
35 miles
Elevation:
