Do I need to be an athlete?

The VeloStudio programme caters for all abilities. Whether you want to simply keep fit, or are an athlete training for competition.

What is the difference between a Wattbike and Matrix bike?

Both bikes use Watts and heart rate to measure power and intensity for workouts and sessions. The Matrix bikes use a colour system to easily show the power you’re riding at, and sessions are tailored around Coach by Color® programmes. Wattbikes include an extensive range of features that measure power, pedalling efficiency, left and right leg individual power measurement and much more, to enable riders to test and evaluate performance. Whatever your preference or goals, either bike is designed to meet your needs and more.

What sessions do you provide?

The VeloStudio programme has a range of sessions for all abilities, including Coached Matrix Fitness & Wattbike sessions, virtual coach Matrix sessions, and Sufferfest training videos. We also have dedicated pay and ride timeslots where you can do your own personal training and we offer a range of 1 to 1 consultations with our Lee Valley VeloPark coaches.

What are Sufferfest training videos?

Sufferfest are widely known as some of the best cycling training videos in the world. They are high-intensity interval workouts designed by world class coaches, complete with music, clear instructions and official footage from the Tour de France, World Championships and more. These sessions are suitable for beginners through to athletes.

What pedals do the bikes have?

With all bikes it’s possible to use trainers as the pedals can be adapted. On both Wattbike and Matrix bikes the pedals have the SPD pedal system, commonly found on most gym bikes. Wattbikes also have the ability to use the Look Keo system found on our velodrome track hire bikes.

What should I wear?

Lightweight technical gym wear, or cycling specific clothing is suitable for the VeloStudio. Please ensure you have trainers to wear to walk around the studio if using cycling shoes. You may get hotter than riding a moving bike, so cool clothing is essential.

Do you provide towels?

There are paper towel dispensers in the studio, but towels are not provided.

Can I use my heart rate monitor strap on the bikes?

Yes, you can link any ANT+ heart rate strap to our Wattbikes and any POLAR 5.5khz Analogue heart rate strap to our Matrix Bikes.

What is the minimum age to use the studio?

The minimum age for the studio is 14 years old. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Is there a minimum Height?

The minimum height for Matrix bikes is 135cm / 5ft 1in and for Wattbikes is 149cm/ 4ft 11in

Is there a maximum weight?

The maximum weight for VeloStudio bikes is 150 kg / 23 stone 8 lbs.
