WANT TO RIDE FASTER AND FURTHER?

Our Group Pedal Technique Workshop will analyse your pedalling motion, identify weaknesses, then coach you to ride more efficiently so you gain as much as 10-20 watts free power to ride faster for longer.

Are you losing power through an
inefficient pedal technique?


Your pedal technique is a fundamental component of your cycling, and with improvements will lead to:


1. An increased power output and speed, 
2. Improved bike handling ability, 
3. Reduced chance of injury,
4. Improved stamina and endurance.

This group workshop will analyse your pedal technique and bike position and our experienced Head Coach and former GB Masters cyclist will:  


i) Suggest changes that will lead to improvements
ii) Provide demonstrations to enhance your learning 
iii)  Oversee a series of proven drills to help build muscle memory 
and ultimately make you a more efficient cyclist.

PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENTS YOU CAN EXPECT

IMPROVED EFFICIENCY

- Increase your pedalling efficiency so you don't tire as quickly.

INCREASED POWER

- Produce more power but with less physiological effort involved. Essentially gaining "free power" i.e. more watts.

CORRECT IMBALANCES

- Identify any irregularities and injuries that may affect your efficiency.

IMPROVED FTP

- Improved FTP score through better power distribution. 

Wow, within a week of doing a pedal technique coaching session, I improved my average power by 10% over 45 minutes and took 90 seconds off my lap time in Richmond park. Well worth a look if you're looking to improve.

WHICH PEDAL TECHNIQUE DO YOU HAVE?

There are a number of factors which can affect your pedal technique and that's where our specialist coaching on our wattbikes comes in. Our coaches will monitor your pedal technique in real time while giving you instant feedback and proven drills to improve and optimise your technique so you become to ride like a pro.

THE STOMPER

A common technique amongst newer riders or those riders that are unable to activate their key cycling muscles in the pedal revolution. This is often called the figure of 8. Here the cyclist loses pedal momentum when transitioning from right-leg to left-leg (point 1) and left-leg to right-leg (point 2). This rider is essentially using majority quadricep muscle activation and pushing down on the pedals only. 

ASPIRING CYCLIST

At this stage, "the peanut", there has been some improvements as the cyclist is able to maintain some pedal momentum between each leg revolution. However, there is still a noticeable loss of power due to a lack of predominantly hamstring activation.  



PRO CYCLIST

This "sausage" like shape is what you should be aiming for which is consistent between each leg, utilising a good downward and upward pressure. Here the cyclist is utilising all their cycling muscles to optimise their pedalling motion and gain maximised power and efficiency.

I took the pedal technique tips onto the road on Sunday and was pleasantly surprised by the difference it made to my cadence consistency, climbing and more importantly the final chase to the coffee stop.

Even after more than 20 years of cycling there's still improvements and techniques to take on and learn. What can I say - a great session!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

For the workshop you will need to bring with you: A sweat towel, A water bottle - Ideally with electrolytes in, comfortable cycling clothes, a heart rate monitor (if you have one) and cycling shoes. 

The Wattbikes have Look Keo pedals, Shimano SPD MTB pedals and also cages for normal trainers. If you have different cleats, we will allow you to change the pedals for a 1-1 session. Check out images below if you are unsure what cleats you have.

If you have a coded heart rate monitor we recommend that you bring it with you. We work with Polar, Garmin, Suunto and other ANT+ straps. If you have a Garmin or ANT+ strap you will need to know your unique HR code. To access this on your watch or bike computer, go into settings under heart rate and look for sensor details to get your unique HR code. This code will be needed to identify your HR amongst all the other riders. Don't panic if you can't find it, we'll help you but you must arrive at 10 minutes before the session.

Please arrive no more than 10-15 minutes before the workshop start time.

Yes that is fine, as long as it's not a seriously tough session.

We have changing facilities at the lab but unfortunately we don’t have any shower facilities. Therefore pack a towel to freshen up afterwards.

We have a 24 hour cancellation policy, so please let us know as soon as possible if you can’t make it, otherwise you will unfortunately forfeit your credit.

No problem. We have storage for your bike at the lab whilst you ride.
