Functional strength and efficiency on the bike begin with:

  • Pelvic core stability and maximum core engagement
  • Lateral stability in your hips, knees, ankles, feet
  • Maximum neuromuscular recruitment for every pedal stroke 

Develop and train these essential elements to increase:


  • Sustainable and peak pedaling force
  • Cycling efficiency & economy
  • Endurance and speed
  • Bike handling skills


Each session is structured:

  • Warm-up with a sequence of pedaling drills (30-40 minutes)
  • Alternating on-bike strength intervals with off-bike strength exercises (40-50 minutes)
  • Cool down (10 minutes)

Participants will also receive a summary email after each session.


B.Y.B.&T or IHF Spin Bike:  

  • Bring your bike and trainer for maximum benefit and adaptation. 
  • Or use a IHF spin bike for convenience.


Improve with Progression: Over the course of the 8 sessions, you will increase the demand of the drills, exercises and intervals as you adapt – in a self-paced but guided manner

Shane Eversfield will lead and guide the session (not do it with you) so he can offer individual feedback and instruction, and keep the group focused and engaged.  Maximize return on your aerobic investment.


Field Tested 

Over the past decade, Shane Eversfield has developed and refined this format through Zendurance Cycling.  As an athlete he has tested and applied these methods, successfully finishing ultra triathlon events with bike distances up to 400 miles.  (See: Moving Beyond A.L.S.)

In 2013, he also completed Wilderness 101 – a 101-mile mountain bike race on a hardtail… without injury.  (Whew!!  A remarkable achievement given his limited MTB technical skills.)


In 2015, he completed the Oregon Double Iron – 18-19 July.  This event included a 224-mile bike leg with 14,000 feet of climbing.  He was the oldest finisher.  Two weeks later he placed 3rd in AG at Cayuga Lake Triathlon.  (Photo)
