Please find below the new summer training timetable. Anticipating some of the likely feedback:
- Sorry that velo is only fortnightly, this is the only booking we are able to get over the summer.
- Sorry that there are multiple sessions on some days, there's not enough days of the week to get all the sessions we would like! Plus it's dependent on venue and coach availability.
- Please note that spin will cost 7 tokens from May in recognition that it is a longer session than other sessions on the timetable.
- I'm still trying to get a 90 min Lido swim session, will let you know if this is possible once it gets warmer.
- We've got a new monthly bike skills session at the velodrome, both for those new to velodrome riding but also those wanting to improve their bike skills in general (look out for the series of sessions that Emily is running as well).
- We're scheduling monthly (approx) beginners rides but the other group rides are dependent on members posting them, so please do post!
Do let me know any other feedback, or sessions you'd like to see and we'll do our best to make it happen if there's enough demand.
