About the Workouts
A lap of The Course That Cannot Be Defeated generally takes 55 to 70 minutes to complete in the outside world. Some people go faster, and many go slower. The range tends to span 45 to 105 minutes.
Each of the custom workouts bring the 719 Ride parcours into Zwift with efforts and segment durations that represent an outdoor experience on Il Corso Imbattibile.
45-minute, 60-minute, 75-minute and 90-minute workouts are included in the download file.
Each workout is pegged to a percentage of your FTP. The 45-minute workout has shorter duration segments with higher relative power outputs. The longer workouts lengthen the efforts and adjust the power requirements to mirror the effort and duration typical for each climb when seeking to complete a full lap in the real world.
The workouts do not include a warmup. They hit you with a demand for steady power right from the get-go, as if you rolled out of the Chipeta Elementary School parking lot in Colorado Springs and immediately started climbing Flying W Ranch Rd.
A Colorado Springs Original
First conceived and ridden in 2016, the 719 Ride aspires to be a bicycle event that contributes to the culture and community of Colorado Springs. The 719 Ride hopes to ride in the draft of the many existing and long-established Colorado cycling events we all love and to become a positive part of the Colorado Springs tradition and identity. FORZA Colorado Springs!
