The Manchester Velodrome is an unrivalled, multipurpose cycling venue and the home of British Cycling. They installed their Wattbike Zone in 2018 to cater for a multitude of customers, which range from elite athletes to complete novices.
Wattbike arrive at the home of British Cycling
The HSBC UK National Cycling Centre in Manchester welcomed the installation of 12 brand new Wattbikes in 2018. The new addition, co-funded by British Cycling and the National Cycling Centre, introduced a new Wattbike Zone in the lobby of the indoor BMX Arena.
The site is an unrivalled multi-purpose cycling venue, home of British Cycling, which already boasts an indoor BMX arena and outdoor mountain bike trails and indoor velodrome - arguably the most famous, busiest and fastest track in the world - which are in constant use by elite athletes and complete novices to local clubs and schools.
"We are really excited about the launch of our new Wattbike Training Zone. The bikes are available to anyone; from local residents and club riders. In fact, anyone can drop-in and use them for general training and fitness or book onto our programme to help prepare for competitions or events""
- Shaun Brennan, Marketing Manager of the National Cycling Centre
Unrivalled data analysis
Shaun adds: "we've chosen to part-fund the installation of Wattbikes as they offer the closest experience to actually riding a bike on the road or track, plus they provide unrivalled data analysis for riders looking for quality feedback on improving their cycling performance. The Wattbikes can help manage individual training or fitness requirements regardless of the riders experience or personal goals."
The Wattbikes have been installed into a new, dedicated area with full Wattbike graphics, where the British Cycling team will make use of the zone during the weekdays and the evening and weekend sessions will be promoted by the National Cycling Centre for use by the general public and cycling clubs.
