Back by Popular Demand, and thanks to @mcneese.chad for passing the reigns over [just for this early event, because the “Annual” December event is still planned as usual]. . . COVID-19 Event Alternate, Worldwide Disaster 2020: The Official Launch!
So post away with your thoughts and feelings, we want to include and get as many TR users as possible riding at once on the same day. And with the possibility of doing D-Day as a group workout is exciting.
“Inspiring and satisfying. Difficult, motivational. Fun, challenging, rewarding. Epic, tough, character building. Team work.”
Last year’s Disaster Workout was a huge success, and soon it’ll be happening again!
COVID-19 Event Alternate, Worldwide Disaster Day: 5 September 2020
COVID-19 Event Alternate, Worldwide Disaster WEEK: 5-12 September 2020
What’s Disaster, you ask?
- Disaster is Coach Chad’s workout inspired by the “kitchen sink” workout, (created by Hunter Allen) designed to include a little bit of everything.
Since it contains such a variety, it’s the perfect test of all systems – from aerobic all the way up to neuromuscular. If you have a weakness, Disaster will show you.
Thanks to generous help from Coach Chad, we have three official Disaster iterations:
The event is aimed at getting as many users as possible attempting this awe-inspiring feat of indoor testing. Choose your own level of challenge and join the community in some “self-inflicted torture.” We’ll be working to create a schedule with signups so you’ll always know when someone else will be riding with you.

Q: Will there be another t-shirt?
A: We’re currently in the planning stages for a t-shirt for the 2020 event and, as with last year, all money raised through t-shirt sales will benefit World Bicycle Relief.
Q: Will there be a group workout version?
A: I think this is a great idea to get people together and help each other through D-Day.
Q: Will there be an outdoor version of Disaster available?
A: Not for 2020.
Q: Will there be a Disaster+1 version made available?
A: Disaster-2, Disaster-1, and the full Disaster are very difficult workouts. However, for those of you who feel you need even more we would suggest importing the full Disaster workout into Workout Creator and adding any additional intervals you feel appropriate.
