Turbo Session
Amanda Seddon
Start Time:
6:30 pm
Start Location:
Turbo sessions are back! We are using the Dixon Suite in Old Mill Hall in Grove on Thursday evenings.

The first block of 8 sessions begins on 8th Nov and ends on 3rd Jan. There will be no session on 15th Nov as the hall is unavailable.

Turbo sessions
Expect to have an hour of intensive cycling, with a prepared programme of cycling each week. We will have intervals (where you repeatedly go hard for a period of time followed by light spinning), steady state riding and maybe even a mix on each evening. Some evenings we will be following videos that direct the activity, synchronised with music and bike racing footage, other evenings will be led without video assistance.

What you need to bring
- A bike.
- A rug/mat/towel to put the bike on. This is mandatory. It is a requirement of our hire agreement that we protect the flooring. No rug/mat/towel = no ride.
- A turbo trainer (or rollers) if you have one. The club has a very limited number that can be loaned on the evening. If you have a spare turbo you are willing to lend on the night bring that too!
- The correct skewer for your back wheel!
- Drinks.
- A fan and extension cable if you wish.
- A small towel for use whilst riding (you will sweat!).
- Gloves.
- A change of clothes.

You may pay a one off subscription* of 20 for each block of 8 sessions and attend all or as many as you wish. Or 3 per evening on the door. Please bring the correct change!

* Subscriptions are only available for CTC Members bringing their own turbo trainer.

- The session will start promptly at 7.00pm, please turn up from 6.30pm and give enough time to set the bikes and equipment up. Late admission may be refused.
- DO NOT enter the hall with wet and/or dirty bikes.
- Please be careful entering and leaving the hall with your equipment so that you do not damage doors or walls.
- There will be a "ride leader" for each evening responsible for planning and organising the session. Please help them by following their instructions.
- Enjoy!

Good to see everyone back on the turbos and a warm welcome to new starters.

Everyone did really well and looked suitably tired at the end of the session.
