Team Velo is a cycle challenge open to all abilities. Teams of four will support one another and Springboard will set up pit stops across the route roughly 25 miles apart as well as have support vehicles on route where possible. Being prepared will help alleviate injuries and give you a more enjoyable experience.

DO I REALLY HAVE TO TRAIN?

We strongly advise you put the hours in on the bike. This will help reduce injuries, make the experience more enjoyable and above all else, get you used to sitting in a saddle for long periods of time..

GO FOR LONG RIDES

Getting used to long distances will help your body become more efficient at utilising fuel. We recommend increasing this distance as the challenge comes closer.

anywhere i can train?

Complimentary lunchtime classes at BOOM Cycle are available for all participants throughout July and August at both Shoreditch and Holborn studios. Contact robbiel@springboarduk.org.uk for details

Training dates for your diary....

Training in groups is much more fun and a great way to meet people. We will be arranging a couple of training days and will update you with dates once confirmed.

ENJOY IT!

It’s a challenge but we want you to enjoy it! Work hard in your training and it will pay off during the challenge.
