Last Monday was the first in our eight-week series of Hammer Time rides on Zwift in association with CycleOps. The series finale is a Fondo on 23 April, and if you ride one of the series rides and the Fondo then you'll be in the hat to win a CycleOps Hammer direct drive trainer worth £999. Interested? Of course you are!
Monday's ride is a group social ride, so it won't be too hard. If you want to get a bit more from it then there'll be some optional sprint efforts, and a mini race at the end too, but if you want to spin round with the road.cc crew then that's fine too. There'll be a gang of us on the ride and road.cc co-founder Dave Atkinson is the beacon.
There's a spot prize every week awarded to one UK rider, and this week you'll be in the hat to win a CycleOps sweat guard worth £25. Just for showing up!

If you've never tried a smart trainer then you can give one a go at one of CycleOps' demo centres. There are currently 11 in the UK, with more to be announced soon. Head to paligap.cc to find your nearest demo centre.
If you buy a CycleOps Hammer or Magnus smart trainer before the end of April 2018 then you can get 3 months free on Zwift or 6 months on Rouvy. That's £39 of training on Zwift, or $66 on Rouvy. Both offer a range of training options, with structured training plans and interactive features. Check out zwift.com and rouvy.com to see what they offer. See the full details of the offer at paligap.cc.
