We will be repeating these time trials at regular intervals. The British Cycling Talent Team use a similar test, so for younger club members it’s a useful way of familiarising yourself with a test you may have to do in the future.

For all other riders, it’s an excellent way to monitor your fitness. We’ll also look at starting a league, so that a competitive element can be introduced.

If you have never ridden the rollers, you are welcome to come down any Thursday and give them a try – you should be up and running on them after a couple of sessions! The venue is the small studio at the rear of the main Brooksbank School building – off Linden road. Enter the rear/side gate of the school, park in the car park and continue round the back of the building to the studio.
