The virtual trainers recreate cycling road conditions and cyclists experience the changes in road surfaces including hills, descents, corners and town riding as if they were cycling outdoors on normal road conditions.

The training equipment not only gives users a great workout, it teaches participants skills and techniques in becoming a better and more confident cyclists and encourages individuals to get back on the road and to participate in sport through cycling activities over the autumn and winter months with their own families and the wider community.
