You will often see FAST members riding on Hines drive, almost every day of the week. While we only have a few set riding workouts set up by FAST for the whole club, people are riding throughout the week, so running partners are easy to find. Typically biking workouts start in April/May and go through the end of September, depending on the weather.
Tuesday Evening Brick Ride at Newburg Lake (map)
This workout includes a 20-25 mile ride out and back on Hines Drive, followed by a 5 or 10k run around Newberg Lake. The ride leaves promptly at 5:45pm and is canceled for rain.
Thursday Evening Brick at Island Lake State Park (map)
This workout includes an out and back swim in Trout Lake followed by a 12.5 mile bike ride (Memorial Day - Fall) through Island Lake. Some do not swim and instead do a reverse brick of Run 5K /Bike. We meet in the Kent Lake Parking Lot and walk to Trout Lake. Typical swims start at 5:30pm, biking at 6:30pm although times may vary depending on weather and group requests. April 30th - Memorial Day are biking only, ready to ride at the Kent Lake Parking Lot by 5:45pm.
Saturday Morning Brick at Island Lake State Park (map)
This workout includes a swim in Trout Lake, followed by a bike ride in and around the Island Lake State Park / Kensington Metropark area. People ride between 10 and 50 miles, depending on their training schedules. Additionally, some people run instead of bike on the trails at Island Lake, or around Kensington. The connector path between Island Lake and Kensington has been reopened.
All speeds welcomed!
