I like to try to keep fit, with, try, being the operative word here. I work in an office and spend a lot of time sat at a desk drinking coffee which could be used to power rockets.
I got into road cycling when my first child was born. It so happened that the Kendal Cycling Club was also being born. I quickly got into cycling with one of the friendliest bunch of people I have come across.
Over the weeks and months of getting out with the club on a Saturday I was getting stronger, but not as much as I would have liked, as I was unable to ride during the week. I was getting a little frustrated with wet evenings, not being confident enough to go out on longer rides on my own, or simply not being able to fit in a quick blast. I heard about a new venture in Kendal called Mapdec cycle studio.
I got down to the studio initially because Kendal Cycle club were doing a number of coached sessions in conjunction with Mapdec. I was quickly hooked. It was so simple, you turn up with your bike, take your back wheel off, put your bike on the turbo trainer, sit on your bike and follow whats on screen infront of you. For me I loved the simplicity and the workout I could get using my bike with minimal faff. Being indoors for around an hour meant that I could get the quick intense fix in an evening I wanted even when it was snowing and icy outside.
I’ll admit I love tech and I love a good stat. As I said above I was initially drawn to Mapdec cycle studio to get a bit of coaching from the Kendal Cycling Club coaches, but it quickly became a core part of my cycle training and weekly exercise regime. The available data allows me to get techie and review my stats, but like I have said above you don't have to worry about the available information if you don't want to!

We have sold hundreds of custom build bikes and we know the TIME bike range intimately but when we got the chance to dig deep into a TIME frame we were absolutely blown away by the quality of the carbon and the craftsmanship.
