During the darker nights, weekly ‘Zwift’ sessions are held to offer a social element to your winter night training blues. These keep everyone in shape for the return of Spring and the start of our weekly ride outs.
We also hold Pilates clases each week which will focus on building short mobility and strength/ activation routines that you can take away with you for the rest of the year.
