Do I have to use a turbo trainer?

No. We believe that our 2 weekly structured workouts are best executed on a turbo trainer for improved control, consistency of effort and safety. However, if you want to do them out on the road then that is of course absolutely fine, but please keep focused on the road not on your computer!

Do I have to hit the exact power targets on the workouts?

No. The power numbers for the workouts are suggested wattages not specific targets. They are there as a guide to help you hit the correct intensity.

Road Rides

What if I don’t have time for all of the road rides in my programme?

We can provide alternative turbo sessions that will provide similar training stress

What do I do if the weather is bad?

If the weather really is too bad to ride outside then substitute your road ride for an indoor turbo workout.

Kit
