moulin road bike - sportive training

Road Bike Holidays at le Moulin du Chemin are a great training opportunity for forthcoming Sportive Events

Holidays are to escape our daily pressure. On holiday there is time to spend many relaxed hours in the saddle, enough time to enjoy rides and to gain strength and stamina, without pushing too hard.

The extra hours you spend in the saddle

make you better for the next sportive event, and

make the next sportive event better for you.

Stamina Building for Sportive Events - Whistling up the Hills

Some competition cyclists in France build stamina between tough training bouts with the club, by long relaxed rides where the aim is not to get out of breath on hills. Puffing hard makes it impossible to sing (or even speak) or whistle. They call it Whistling up the Hills.

Cycling in a group can preclude relaxed riding due to competitiveness and peer pressure, whereas cycling at le Moulin du Chemin can be more relaxed with the possibility to increase stamina by to Whistling up the Hills all day long.

".... road biking round the beautiful countryside of Poitou-Charentes, burning sufficient calories to justify fully indulging in Peter's fine wines and Carolynn's marvellous food. ....."
