These training classes are ideal for everyone from the novice rider wanting to simply improve their fitness and wellbeing through to the more competitive racing cyclist who is looking to increase their threshold power and speed.

Each individual rider will have their own training zones established based on their current fitness level so in each weeks varied training classes riders can make each session or interval as challenging or as easy as they like based on their specific training zones.
