Using state of the art Wattbikes designed for the British Cycling Team and professional Team Sky in the UK, each person will receive tailored, data driven feedback. Developed with elite coaches and professional cyclists, Real Ride Feel technology offers the smoothest, most comfortable ride, which feels almost identical to riding out on the road. Combine the fully adjustable Wattbike set-up with the advanced Real Ride Feel technology and you’ll find the changeover between outdoor and indoor sessions seamless. This effortless transition also means your muscle memory and technique improvements are easily transferred out onto the road, resulting in performance improvements.
The intimate setting of this class organically creates both connection between participants and the bikes as well as with instructors and co-participants. Be ready to work hard and see the results! Taught by certified indoor cycling instructors and coaches Rutland Tyler and Brian Diaz.
