What is it like to do a Heart Rate Threshold test?

We find out direct from Sean his thoughts before and after riding the test needed to establish his correct training thresholds.

How can I setup and use Trainerroad for indoor training

Trainerroad is a popular online training App that allows you to workout according to heart rate or power so you get the best out of any session and follow either your own or one of our plans. In our series of videos on connecting technology, here we show you how.

How can I setup and use Zwift for indoor training

Zwift is an exciting and immersive training experience, but requires a little bit of setup to connect bits such as your turbo trainer, heart rate monitor, etc to the Internet.  In our series of videos here we show you how and what to expect whether you want to free rode or workout to your own or one of our plans.


Sean, Plymouth and Spain: Whether you are just starting out, returning to cycling after an extended break or even as an experienced cyclist looking to hit those marginal gains, I think that this format of mentoring is an extremely useful tool. The real-life interactions with a person are a welcome addition to the cold harsh binary feedback from digital platforms such as Strava. An algorithm will only go so far in adding to your social life too! Cycling is about community and shared experience.  That’s what cycling is about. Enjoying yourself. Feeling free. Feeling proud of your achievements.  The tone of my inner monologue is changing. “I can – I will – I have”. Take the next step in your journey and sign up for one of plans. You wont look back, other than to wave at the pack you have just dropped. Power to you!

Sarah, Oxfordshire 5/5 “This  program is ideal for people like me who would like to cycle more but  don't know how to get into it. I bought my bike last year but hardly  used it, having the coach encourage and guide you makes the process so  much easier. 3 rides a week is just about right to get you into the  swing of things and the coach is there all the way to encourage you and  answer all the little questions you're afraid to ask. The team are so  friendly and enthusiastic about cycling, you can't help but catch the  bug. The bonus is you get fit too!”

Tracy, Hampshire 5/5. I have been working through the Start to ride 20 program now and am about to complete the 20 mile plan. I’ve really enjoyed this training plan. It is based on three rides a week, two of which are interval rides and the third building up to longer rides and ultimately to 20 miles as the end goal.  I used to cycle, but haven’t touched my bike for a while. Grant has been an excellent coach. He is very approachable and knows his stuff. As I hadn’t cycled for a while, I wanted a plan I could comfortably complete around work and family life, but a plan that challenged my fitness levels too. This plan is that and more! We discuss the plan on a weekly basis, but I can always email in-between times and Grant is very quick to respond to my questions. Since starting the plan, I have noticed a real difference in my energy and stamina levels. Highly recommend. Thanks Grant!
