"I completed the Etape in what can only be described as brutal conditions reaching 40C on the Alp d’huez.    Nevertheless, I finished in the top 20%.  I was also able to finish the Etape du Tour by pushing out over 500 watts and finishing in the top 5% in the sprint segment finish.   It’s amazing how much more one can achieve with the right professional help, thanks Togo."

DAVID SALISBURY Etape Du Tour

"I met Togo on a HotChillee gravel ride and immediately knew I needed to speak to him some more. I love his passion and enthusiasm for riding and Njinga. I asked Togo to help me with my training through the winter in preparation for my upcoming event: the Cape Town Cycle Tour where my goal was 3h15 at 33.4 km/h. Not only did I achieved a 3h07 finishing time at 35 km/h, but I was eighth in my age group and the 31st female overall out of 3,200 female participants.  I hadn’t even been targeting a place – just a time! I had done better than I ever could have anticipated by smashing my PB by a huge 31 minutes. Thank you Togo, you rock!" READ MORE


MICHELLE SHARLAND
Cape Town Cycle Tour

"I saw my cycling go from strength to strength, add over 10% to my FTP score, was 3rd amateur female in the Cape Roleur, came in the top 2% of women in the Cape Argus as well as qualifying for the UCI Gran Fondo World Champs.  I improved my 100-mile time by over 30m from 5h15 minutes to 4h4m.

Njinga really develop you as a cyclist in technique, physical and mental strength and a level of confidence and discipline I hadn't even thought about." READ MORE

"I was able to conquer a number of Category climbs in the Alps though hard I was always confident I would complete them, I completed the Cat 1 Col de Forclaz 20% quicker than last year. In the London 100 I was able to knock off almost 40 minutes from my time last year a 12% improvement. I have put this all round improvement down to adhering to a bespoke plan provided by Togo, but also to the continuing encouragement and advice provided by Togo and his team at Njinga Cycling over the plan period.

 I have demonstrated with a clear plan, effort and support you can break out of ‘’the plateau.’’ Many thanks to Njinga Cycling for a very rewarding 2 months." 

SIMON BARRETT Ride London

"In the four months between May and September my cycling went to a new level: I got significantly stronger and quicker, and crucially I gained a lot more confidence in knowing I could complete Lejog.
.  
My 12-minute climbing test score improved from 185w-214w (15.68%) in 8 weeks and my comfort levels on climbs and long rides got radically better.
Perhaps the biggest change was more intangible:  I felt more confident and in control, whatever kind of ride I was doing."  READ MORE




DAVID BRAMLEY
Lejog

"Seven weeks after starting with Njinga I rode up Col d' Aspin and Col du Tourmalet and did not die. I survived  cycling circa 100kms a day with a ton of climbing and LIKED it. I even won "most improved" from my psycho cycling buddies.

Njinga helped make this possible for me by rigorous attention to detail in multiple areas and the "ah ha" realisation that pacing, understanding your metrics, nutrition, hydration(!) and regular training can make you dominate what might once have been insurmountable. The whole experience  of working with Njinga  exceeded my expectation" READ MORE
