Training




There are lots of exciting events and sessions around Hong Kong popular among members. As we live all over Hong Kong, we usually join our "local" sessions, tapping into the resource of existing training rides with cyclists from all clubs. On Hong Kong Island there is the usual SIR early wake up calls. Lantau has regular Wednesday evening rides out of Tung Chung, whilst in New Territories there is Science Park and the MAD100 (100km every Sunday Morning through the New Territories.)Of course, as a member you can post rides and you will see postings for rides with other club members.

However, if you're new to the club and you want to meet more like minded people, there are some dates on a monthly recurring schedule when it is likely to meet other club members. It's a good opportunity to train general fitness and cycling, and also try some break aways, lead outs etc. No commitment from anyone is needed, but good to see people on the sessions, so please put a note in your calendar, and join if you can:

1st Sunday of the month - MAD 100 (e.g. September 1st, October 6th, November 3d, December 1st 2013) 6.30 from Sha Tin. See Maps page, CMS site & the 'files' section of the SIR site if you are a member.
2nd Tuesday of the month - SIR Peak Repeats - (e.g. 10th September, 8th October, 12th November, 10th December) 5.45am from Shellopec Wong Nai Chung Gap
3d Wedensday of the month - Tung Chung Wednesday ride (e.g. 18th September, 16th October, 20th November, 18th December) Meeting 8 PM at sunny bay MTR station or join the peloton from Tung Chung 9PM 
4th Thursday of the month - Science Park (e.g.26th September, 24th October, 28th November, 26th December) Meet in the melee at Science Park from 8pm onwards

On top of this there are our track traning sessions (when we can book the velodrome), the upcoming opening of the Tsuen Kwan O Velodrome (that hopefully will have some a schedule of recurring open training sessions), ad-hoc rides / training sessions in HK, SIR & Dragons events, HKCA races (road, track MTB), regional races etc etc . We will have plenty to do! Good to see people attend these events.

Perdiodically our members have also been known to organise their own China training camps over the border. See the above photo for a taster- we've done a few varients on this now...

NOTE: NONE OF THE RIDES, EVENTS, ETC ARE OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED BY COLOSSI CYCLING CLUB AND ARE FOR INFORMATION ONLY. ANY PARTICIPATION FULLY AT OWN RISK. WE ARE WORKING ON OUR LEGAL LIABILITY POSITION TO ORGANISE 'OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED' EVENTS.



Join Colossi, have access to power! We have a Cyclops Powertap available for rental to members.

Colossi Powertap Wheel

- Treat the wheel as if it were your own.

- Please return the wheel in full working order.

- Clean the wheel if dirty or if you ride it in the wet.

- If you hit a heavy bump or pot hole, check the wheel for true and advise a Committee Member (we can then get the wheel checked quickly).

Rather than loan the wheel without a tyre, we will experiment with providing a tyre and tube (new one donated by a member).

- Carefully inspect tyre surface before you use and also before you return (remove any imbedded items).

- If you get a flat, repair it so that the next user is not inconvenienced.

- If you prefer to use your own tyre, please replace the Club one before you hand on the wheel.

Booking System

- The wheel is available to all club members.

- The booking system will be a simple queue. The Committee may alter the bookings to allow for special events (testing days, race events), but notification will be made in advance.

- Bookings can be made via email (jonny.cantwell@gmail.com) or using the online form at www.xxxxxxxxxx (TBC)

- New bookings will have precedence over repeat bookings to ensure that the wheel is shared around (ie bookings not blocked out by one rider).

- The cost of hire is $70 per week. The hire fee will cover the costs of maintenance and parts for the wheel.

- The maximum hire length is 2 weeks, but if there is no waiting list or other demand you may keep the wheel longer.

- The wheel should be passed back to a Committee Member after use, but may be passed directly to the next user. The Committee Member in charge of the bookings must be informed when the wheel is handed over.

We also organise occasional 'power testing' sessions where members can compare TT times and gauge improvements in power / positioning.
