As the world's top cyclists arrive for RideLondon, in which amateurs can
also try their hand, Matt Majendie discovers the latest two-wheel innovations...
NEWSFLASH

Cycle like a pro

TWO WHEEL S GO O D
FOR 400M RUNNER
Tim Benjamin is a former world and European
silver medallist in athletics, which makes his
move towards cycling something of an unlikely
sporting switch. With his cycling studio One 10, he is, as he
puts it, trying to 'put a whole new spin on things', encouraging
greater competition amid the community of indoor cyclists.
One 10, in London's Marylebone, opened this summer with
Paceline, a competitive stats-based class, and the motivational,
music and rhythm-based Nirvana.
Tim, whose own sporting career was curtailed by injury, is
pushing the benefits of cycling because of the low risk of injury
as well as the obvious cardiovascular benefits. In Paceline, you
effectively get named and shamed, your performance on a moving
leaderboard for all to see, while with Nirvana, you can see the
calories you're burning for added motivation. one-10.com

A SPLASH OF GREEN: Study the cycle-friendly streets
indicated on Google Maps and, if it rains, you'll have a much
more pleasant trip. These roads have minimal traffic, so you
are less likely to hit puddles or be sprayed by passing cars.

It is just a matter of weeks
since Chris Froome won
the Tour de France for a
fourth time. What's more,
he's bidding for a historic
double by also winning the
Vuelta a España (Tour of
Spain) which concludes
this month. Chris is
currently riding the
Pinarello Dogma F10, 6.3%
lighter than his previous
bike and yours for £7,750

pedalling, for the latest
innovative clothing,
check out Hexoskin.
The Hexoskin smart
shirt measures more body
metrics than any other
wearable technology
product, and with
greater precision.
It can monitor your heart
rate, breathing and
movement and also has
a Bluetooth recording
device to record every
piece of data in the
saddle. The cost is
$399 - just over £300.

TIME TO RECOVER

cycling, not drowning
WATER
WORKS
Spin classes
have long been
a feature of the
exercising scene
but have you ever thought about cycling underwater?
Probably not, but Aqua Fit Pro Ltd has, and offers classes
in three locations - Cannon Street, Canary Wharf and Bond
Street - to do just that. The Cycl'H2O sessions offer low
impact on joints and claims to give a full body workout while
boosting weight loss and improving blood circulation. Your
first one costs just £10. aquafitproltd.co.uk

Muscle pain and
inflammation can be
side effects of hours of
pedalling. BetterYou's
Turmeric Daily Oral Spray
(25ml, £17.95) is a way to
get the anti-inflammatory
properties and other
benefits of turmeric
straight to the blood
stream via the mouth. Turmeric
is notoriously poorly absorbed
through the gut so this ensures
a greater intake. The spray was
declared best new health and
nutrition product at the Natural
and Organic Awards in April.
