Manchester’s Spin Factory, the biggest indoor spin cycling facility in Europe, is setting a new standard of speed in the North West.
Spin Factory is bringing the ultimate Watt Bike Time Trial to cyclists across the city on its peloton of Wattbikes. The challenge has been set to uncover the best individual male, female and team effort with £500 of Wattbike training up for grabs in this exciting digital TT course.
The Wattbike Time Trials are taking place at both the Spin Factory in Manchester City Centre and Pro Spin at Manchester Airport to challenge spinners and cyclists both physically and mentally.
In the Wattbike Studio riders can focus purely on speed with no adverse weather conditions, traffic jams or potholes to hamper their performance.
For cyclists looking to benchmark their performance, the Ten Mile Time Trial is the ideal fitness test. The concept is this: cyclists set a personal best time across a 10-mile sprint, before honing power, technique and cardiovascular fitness with the opportunity to retake the challenge – hopefully improving their own time, and competing against others.
Teams are invited to participate with up to eight Wattbikes available at a time to allow group scores in a thrilling race.
The Spin Factory is the biggest spin facility of its kind in Europe, with more than 60 bikes and 18 Wattbikes.
The City Centre location is situated under the railway arches opposite Salford Central station, just a stone’s throw from Spinningfields. Pro Spin, the Manchester Airport site, will also be hosting the Time Trials and results from the two studios will be collated before the winners are decided at the end of winter.
The Spin Factory’s Master Trainer Ross Sommers said of the Wattbike Time Trial, “These sessions are tough, but there is plenty of data from the Wattbike that riders can use to monitor their improvements. There are prizes for leaderboard winners in 3 categories – top male, female and team. We have individuals storming up the leader-board as well as rugby teams coming in to take the challenge against each other.
It’s brilliant to see the dedication, and also the improvement as people retake the trial.”
