Keep your training on track for the FNB Wines2Whales
We enlisted Daisyway Coaching Systems to put together monthly training programmes for you to use.
“Training for an event like the FNB Wines2Whales should be fun while pushing your fitness limits at the same time. The goal of the first phase of training is to build a base; the first plan focusses on time in the saddle and developing a routine that you’ll be able to use going forward. These sessions should be enjoyable and are a good opportunity to get some good riding banter going with your race partner.”

FNB W2W Women’s Rides
*Subject to change
To help women, of all skill levels, prepare for the 2021 event we will be hosting three FNB Wines2Whales Women’s Rides.
The rides will be hosted through Daisyway Coaching Systems.
PLEASE NOTE: The 2021 Women’s rides will be suspended until further notice
What You Need to Know
The Women’s Rides are for all female mountain bikers, experienced or novice; regardless of whether you intend to ride FNB W2W or not. The idea is to gain confidence on the trails in an inclusive environment where everyone can safely push their limits and learn from Jo as well as fellow riders.
For each session you are required to bring your bike, usual MTB gear (including a helmet most importantly) and #SeriousGEES. Then meet at the designated trail head by 07h30, pay the trail permit fee and be ready to pedal out on a two hour ride by 8am.
What You Can Expect to Learn
Mountain biking is about more than just fitness. You need grit, determination and sometimes the bush mechanic skills of MacGyver to get you home. With Daisyway’s help you’ll learn and laugh your way through being nervous around CO2 canisters, to plugging punctures for the men in your riding group in no time. Plus she’ll be providing pointers on bike setup, on-bike position and of course some skills tips too.
