Specific Training

Individualised training programs are drawn up based on your goals, experience, and current fitness. Your fitness is determined by a 20-min maximal-effort ride (the so-called functional threshold power or FTP); the average power and associated heart rate from this ride are used to determine your training zones. The training model at Bike2max is that you do 2-3 supervised indoor sessions per week, with your remaining outdoor or home-based rides being less specific and usually less intense.

Although the sessions are run as classes, everyone does their own specific training, so the training sessions are thus completely specific to your requirements, rather than everyone doing the same session for a given class. The intensity of the training sessions is set according to power output, as a percentage of the FTP, while the heart rate response is used as a secondary measure of the intensity.

Training sessions are generally 70 minutes long, although longer sessions are allowed if the cycle is available beyond that class.

Our Equipment


Bike2max uses Phantom 3 power-measuring indoor cycles that has been built around a POWERTAP hub for an accurate and precise measurement of power output, and a heart rate strap is provided to record your heart rate response to the power. All the usual riding data is displayed on a tablet while you ride, and is automatically downloaded to a web-based training log for monitoring your progress and reviewing the training. In this way the training composition and intensity is updated in response to your progress.
The cycles are equipped with the most commonly used pedals (Look, SPD and Shimano), and the saddles and handlebars are fully-adjustable, to enable you to replicate your usual riding position for maximal comfort and power output.
