Group Training Days

At Your Cycling Academy we have developed two types of training days that are designed to be fun while giving a lot of information and skills to riders. The first type of training day is the NUDGE. It is designed for all levels of riders to improve their basic knowledge and skills on the bike. The second type of training day is the PUSH, which give riders who are aiming to be more competitive, whether in club leagues, open races or faster sportive’s more advanced skills and training plans.

Further Information to note

  • We would suggest that all riders progress through the Nudge program before attending the Push program.
  • The training days can be altered to suit the level, experience and desires of the group.
  • Our coaches can visit your location or you may wish to have your riders travel to another location based on the discipline wanting to be covered.  Additional costs will apply if more then 20km from home. 
  • All notes are supplied to participants including sample-training plans
  • Usually €25 per person but this may change depending on numbers or group price
  • Total of 15 people max
