Frequently asked questions
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 SUF Cycling training videos?
Suf Cycling is 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. Our Wattbike and Matrix bikes have a mixture of the SPD pedal system (commonly found on most gym bikes) as well as the Look Keo system allowing you to choose what suits you best.
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.
