Training for the Challenge

Team Dai training 

Team Dai rides 3 times per week. Every Tuesday and Thursday wee meet a 6:15 AM in front of the Phonthan water tower close to Sengdara Gym. To do a 20 km route which finishes at Joma Bakery in the city centre. Every Sunday at 7 AM we meet at Joma in the city centre for a longer ride the length and duration will increase as we get closer to the challenge.

Alternatively there is another weekday ride on Wednesday and Friday starting from the junction at Khouvieng and Sokpaluang (the road to ban gai). Starting time is 5:50 for a loop of approximately 20 km.

Team Dai Challenge participation training requirement

Team Dai Challenge 2017 participants are expected to join at least one of the weekday trainings per week + one Sunday training every two weeks, more is always better. The reason for this we want you to be fit and we want you to get to know as many of the participants as possible.

For those who do not live in Vientiane and want to join this year, well, that is a different case and of course we cannot expect you to come to the trainings. But we are expecting you to train for the challenge. By the way, trainings are open to everyone, whether you plan to join the challenge or not.

Training schedule

The rides for each Sunday leading up to the Challenge will be posted in Team Dai's Facebook Group. Distances for the Sunday rides increase when we get closer to the dates of the Challenge. The last Sunday, however, is a shorter ride, in order to allow for some recovery and be fresh for the first day of the Challenge.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the bike as often as possible!
