Club turbo’s are available on a first come first served basis (£2 charge per turbo per session), but you can also bring your own turbo trainer if you have one. If you don’t have your own turbo, the club has five spare ones for members to use and all funds collected will go directly into purchasing additional turbo’s so we can encourage new turbo ‘virgins’ to join us prior to outlaying for their own.

You’ll also need a drink and a towel for sweat management!

These sessions are structured so they will differ each week, bringing you to a ‘racing level of fitness’ by March.
