This is how we see our riding

We don’t ride so we can train -

we ride to have amazing experiences

Proper training techniques aren’t just for the elite - they integrate into everyday riding

Our riding is a lifestyle choice - not a six week training program

The training should be enjoyable and fun -

enhancing our riding experience

Our riding is a lifestyle choice - not a six week training program

Riding is our mental medicine - a positive force in our lives

Sans Chaine is more than just a training program. It is a wealth of knowledge centred on the philosophy that cycling is a part of our lives. We celebrate our cycling

Who is Sans Chaine for?

  • riders with a goal, an event they want to get ready for: it can be a fondo, race or trip.

  • the rider who has been training for a while but isn't improving

  • the rider who started recently and felt like things were going amazingly, until they hit the wall

  • the rider willing to put in some time - getting better isn't a quick fix and takes time

  • the rider willing to pay attention to details and try some new ideas

How does Sans Chaine work?
