5 Ways SportActive Makes you a Better Rider
Everybody wants to improve at everything they do, and at SportActive we recognise that cycling further and faster is your goal. It is not just a question of being fitter and stronger, it is important to use the right techniques.
This is what we focus on when you ride with us. This post explains how we do it.
Professional Cycling Coach
Our professional and head cycling coach Martin Birney has cycled all over the world and worked with the best in the sport, including cycling legend Sean Kelly. As well as Martin and his team bringing their considerable knowledge to ensure you leave a better rider than when you arrived, Martin ensures that every aspect of your cycling is correct. This includes knowing how to ride in a group, to keeping as still as possible in the saddle as you cycle. Often, it is the small things that make a difference.
If you have booked a week when Sean Kelly rides with us, then you have the chance to ride and learn from a legend of the sport. Sean was the number one cyclist for five consecutive years and will pass on knowledge that only a legend and a great of the sport can. Riding with Sean Kelly is like playing football with Maradona, a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Mallorca is so suited to you becoming a better cyclist, that pro peloton groups such as Team SKY use Mallorca in the off-season. The roads are smooth and endless on the island, and the Tramantana mountain range gets the blood pumping. As you become a stronger and a better cyclist, you will find these mountains easier to ride.
Mallorca is largely traffic free which enables you to concentrate on becoming a better rider.
If you have never had a professional bike fit, now is a good time to have one. Having the right sized bike makes a considerable difference to your cycling. Not only will you be riding as efficiently as you can but you will also be addressing other issues such as back pain and saddle soreness. The more pain free you are the more you can ride, and the more your ride the better you'll become.
We look after you
Regardless of whether you're improving your cycling in Mallorca to conquering a French mountain used in the Tour de France, at all times we have your back. We take care of all the logistics, flights, breakfast and evening meals, spare parts, breakdowns and repairs, bike fit, and provide professional coaching to inspire you.
All you need to do is turn up and ride.
