By popular demand The CYKL Winter Base Training is back and available online for purchase TODAY!!

What is it? The CYKL Winter Base Training Program is a 12 week periodization program, designed by Kim Donnelly. It begins by going back to the basics – concentrating on form, function and technique on the bike. Sessions start at around 90 mins (and grow to 2+ hours), focusing on building up your aerobic and muscular endurance over the course of 12 weeks.
Who is this program for? This program is perfect for cyclists looking to hit the 2015 season fresh and ready, for runners looking to use cycling as a great cross training tool throughout the winter, as well as riders who feel like they’ve plateaued in their exercise regime. All levels and abilities welcome!
What does it include? On top of 12 weekly sessions, this program also includes a series of guest speakers and experts who will come and chat at our sessions. We cover a variety of topics from nutrition to stretching. You must have a working heart rate monitor for this program. CYKL sells Polar Heart Rate Monitors and straps at an extra cost.
When are the weekly sessions? We have 2 options for you to choose from! Saturdays at 7am with Jen OR Sundays at 12pm with Kim.
The CYKL Winter Base Training Program is now available online for purchase!! CLICK HERE to purchase!
If you purchase before Dec 1st, you get CYKL’s WBTP at last year’s price! $345+hst

Lots of new riders come to CYKL and don’t even realize our Real Ryder bikes move! The bikes are on an articulating frame that allows for riders to take the bike left and right into turns. Doing this not only makes the ride more dynamic, but also means you’re burning 20% more calories (because of the core and upper body engagement) than if you were on a regular stationary bike!

Here’s a short video to show you how to take a proper turn on our Real Ryder bikes!
