Only 9 days to go before the big ride

I have been on some really great rides recently and my fitness is improving. We are very fortunate to live an area where cyclists are spoilt with such varied terrain, consequently I  have been mixing up speed runs, hill climbs and long distance treks.
Only 9 days to go before this summers bike adventure Click here for the Facebook page

This summer my French bike adventure will take me down the Loire valley to Provence. It will begin on the 17th of June in Nantes, follow the Loire river to Never, shoot up the Canal du Centre to Chalon-sur-Saône, head down the Rhône valley through Lyon and then finally on to Provence. It will be a distance of approx 1300k and take about 15 days.

Weight step drill

A fantastic drill to feel the weight shift on to the front foot during the downswing. From a normal address position move the front foot back against the back foot. Start the downswing by moving the front foot back to its original position, allow the arms to drop down and release through impact. NB: This drill can be used with or without a ball.

Post impact drill

This is a great drill to feel the perfect post impact position. From the address position push the ball forward keeping the triangle between the shoulders, arms and hands intact. The hips should open and the weight should shift on to the front foot. NB: Be careful to avoid any wrist manipulation.

Practice wedges to 50m

Hitting solid consistent 50m shots is crucial if you want to improve your scoring, make practicing from this distance an important part of your sessions on the driving range. When I was a young pro to make if more fun, I would use an open old umbrella as a target.
