TRI247 Workout Series: Dare To Tri Big Gear Set
Group Workout

Every Wednesday at 7pm GMT, Tri247 present a triathlon focused workout brought to you by a guest 'coach.' This will include sessions by pro triathletes, coaches and notable characters associated with the sport.

The workouts are about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule over the Winter.


In this week’s workout we go big… BIG gear, LOW cadence!

The main set this week consists of three sets of ascending, big gear intervals. Starting at a modest power output, stick to the suggested cadence prescribed as the target outputs step up, finishing with four minutes at 105% of FTP. The aim this week is not to hit big power numbers, but to build strength through these big gear intervals.


This session comes from BBC Breakfast presenter, Louise Minchin, and her coach Claire Sutcliffe ( a new window)

Hosting the flagship BBC One TV programme, Louise is a household name in the U.K. Her triathlon exploits have been followed by millions, and feature in her book 'Dare to Tri: My Journey from the BBC Breakfast Sofa to GB Team Triathlete’. That book is released this week (Thursday) in paperback format, and provides the title for tonight’s session.

Louise will be joining ride leader, TRI247 Editor John Levison, on this week’s session – so feel free to ask her about her recent experience at the PATAGONMAN in Chile, quite a way to take on your first long-distance event!


Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.


We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level.
