More Infomation:

Turbo training is a great way of keeping legs turning and lungs working over the winter months whilst improving technique, endurance, strength and lactate tolerance before the start of the race season.

Sessions last 60 – 75 minutes and typically comprise of a 15 minute warmup, some drills and technique work, two main sets of specific efforts and a cool-down. We will follow a progressive programme aimed at building speed endurance for time trials with a Sufferfest video every couple of months. Since you ride at your own pace, its easy to accommodate riders of all ages and abilities. No one is left behind!

The MPC lab is a roomy, air-conditioned hall perfect for this sort of training. Showers are available in the nearby sports hall.
Attendees are advised to use the small car park between MPC and the astro-turf pitch. Bikes and kit can be unloaded and brought in through 
the large firedoors at the rear of the building. Note that there is now a £1 charge for parking at the University.  Location details can be found at http://www.worcester.ac.uk/documents/st-johns-campus-map-university-worcester-web.pdf
