HOW WILL A CYCLING COACHING SESSION HELP YOU?
FROM LEARNING TO RIDE IN CLEATS TO FINE TUNING YOUR DESCENDING, WE CAN HELP YOU.
Whatever your current cycling experience is, from beginner to elite, everyone will benefit from our outdoor coaching sessions. Our coaches will help boost confidence on the road, improve your performance and ultimately transform your riding.
Given the increase of road traffic in and around major cities such as London, we know that some of you may feel a little uneasy about riding your bike outdoors. We're here to help you be confident when riding your bike (and to make sure you enjoy it). After all, confidence is key.
KEY CYCLING SKILLS YOU WILL IMPROVE
If you’re new to cycling and haven’t used cleats before, this is the first step to becoming a "real" cyclist. As daunting as it is for first time users, mastering cleats can make all the difference when applying power into the pedals and improving your bike handling skills.
CLIMBING & DESCENDING
Knowing the correct body position, how and when to use your gears and other important techniques to improve your efficiency when climbing or descending can dramatically increase your speed (and confidence). Whether you are looking to get a KOM on a local climb or just keep up with the group, it's well worth perfecting.
cornering & BRAKING
So many amateur cyclists lose ground by not cornering effectively and then burn valuable energy trying to rejoin the group. Cornering safely, correctly and smoothly can make a significant improvement to your ride. Do you need help optimising your cornering?
MOUNTING & DISMOUNTING
It sounds basic and for some it may be... but a crucial first step to improve your bike handling skills is feeling confident getting on and off the bike, safely and comfortably.
How close is too close, how far is too far? Understanding how to draft correctly will seriously reduce your energy expenditure on the bike. It's also about trust, communication and riding safe. We will teach you the finer points of rider etiquette and technique to ensure you gain maximum benefit from being in the group.
pEDALLING & GEAR SELECTION
The importance of good gear selection is often felt too late as the group leaves you standing when they accelerate off, or you hit a climb only to find your legs grind to a halt or spin out in too easy a gear. Mastering your gear selection will dramatically improve your speed and efficiency on the bike.

"Having just completed 2 outdoor sessions focusing on cleats and bike handling skills I am now feeling so much more positive about getting out on my bike! Njinga were great - really encouraging and supportive, and we worked at a pace that was challenging yet comfortable. The whole team at Njinga are so welcoming, it is great to be part of a community where there is no judgement, just an eagerness to help and see everyone improve. Like I said, I love it!!"

"I recently completed a series of outdoor coaching sessions with the Njinga Academy and it has been really helpful in building up my confidence to tackle outdoor and group riding. The skills sessions on the importance of the right gear selection for hill climbing and descending hills at speed have built up my technique week on week! I'm loving that I feel much more comfortable now and really enjoy the longer rides. The coaching provided by Njinga is supportive as well as challenging and aims to take you out of your comfort zone."

"I signed up with Njinga after my first group ride showed me I had a fair bit to learn. Working with Togo was an incredible experience. We rode together and he quickly assessed some areas where I needed work, showed me some cool tricks and as a result, I feel much more comfortable climbing. It was a real masterclass in an hour well worth the cost. Togo is a master of his trade with insights that I have incorporated into my rides. I would highly recommend Njinga and Togo to anyone looking to become a better cyclist! Top team!"
