It’s a chicken and egg thing: Does cycling keep us in shape for cross-country skiing, or does cross-country skiing keep us in shape for cycling?
Winter doesn’t slow us down much. In September and October it’s all about cyclocross! From November to March, we cross country ski as a group to build fitness for the coming cycling season.
During the winter, ERTC riders join the Great Canadian Sports Club which offers organized cross country skiing and rollerblade sessions for athletes of all levels. Visit the Great Canadian Sports Club website to learn more.
In September and October, the Great Canadian Sports Club offers simulated cross country skiing using rollerblades and ski poles to prepare for the coming ski season.
