Adventure Fit Events announces its 2022 Winter Training Series for the 8th annual Old Man Winter Bike Rally and Run. Known throughout the cycling and running community for its epic winter adventure, Old Man Winter 2022 is placing a strong focus on welcoming more beginner athletes and those new to racing to the event and that starts with training.
January 2nd will kick off the training series with a Gravel 101 Clinic. From there, the Old Man Winter Rally offers a variety of training rides and runs through January leading up to the main event on February 6th.
“The month leading up to the Old Man Winter Rally is a big part of why this event is so popular. Our training events encourage folks to bundle up for fun-spirited rides and runs when they may otherwise be hibernating for the season. Our free and supported training events give people a taste of what the Old Man Winter Rally is all about: fun, fitness, adventure, and community. We know that once you come to a training ride or run, you’ll be hooked and we’ll see you at the start line on February 6th,” states Josh Kravetz, founder of Adventure Fit Productions.
For those new to gravel bike racing/events, the Gravel 101 Clinic on January 2nd is the perfect way to kick off the year, make friends, have fun and practice the techniques that will build confidence on the bike. It will also give riders a chance to ask questions and learn from the experienced and friendly staff from Specialized’s Boulder Experience Center.
From there, there are rides every weekend with run training during the week. All events are supported by the top-notch sponsors of the Old Man Winter Rally so participants will be fueled, hydrated, and have access to instructors and pros who can help with any question to prepare for the epic winter adventure in February.
