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 structured 15 minute warmup, some drills and technique work, two main sets of specific efforts and a cool-down. These are not spinning sessions but a progressive programme aimed at time trials and road racing 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 in Thomas Telford building is a roomy, air-conditioned hall perfect for this sort of training. Showers are available in the nearby sports hall.
From the car park outside the MPC bikes and kit can be 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.

Suggested kit list:
Bike – in reasonably clean condition
Turbo trainer
Riser block for front wheel
Shorts, shoes, top
Fan to keep cool
Drinks bottle (water available)
Heart rate monitor (extremely useful but not essential)
A couple of towels to catch sweat – one for you, one to cover the bike

Entries are still open for our event which take place in 2 weeks!

Entries are available via this link

Some key updates:

  • Car parking. As you may know Worcester University now own the site, hence its name change to Lake side Campus and no longer Top Barn Activity Centre. As part of this transition it is University Policy to charge for parking on their sites. It is beyond our clubs control but there will be a car parking fee of £3 per vehicle on race day. Hopefully you will still agree that this is still a good value event. If you could bring exact change on race day that would be helpful to uni staff on the day.


  • Wave times. There will be more than one wave, at the present time there will be two waves. The first wave will start at 8:00am second wave at 08:45. You will be informed of your wave time in the week before the race.


  • Race information can be found via our clubs website and our clubs facebook page. Links are below.

Thanks again and good luck with your training and preparation.
