Hear what our riders have to say:

“Josh was great at keeping us motivated and disciplined as we pushed through the programme. Being surrounded by a friendly bunch of other cyclists with similar goals was also great for motivation. The final FTP test came around and I improved my threshold power and sweetspot by over 20 watts. I felt more comfortable holding consistent power and the focus on pedal technique had definitely gained me a few watts. The training speaks for itself, I felt strong all the way, stayed with a strong group and qualified for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships - beyond my own expectations! Doing a programme at Njinga is a super smart and time efficient way of training with a great bunch of people. I highly recommend.” Matt Connelley

“It was a great programme. I have found over the course of the 7 weeks my fitness has really improved, I know what I am doing with my cadence now and I also feel more confident pacing myself on the bike.  I increased by FTP score by 13 Watts so really pleased with myself. Josh was a great instructor and it was really fun to do each week with a great bunch of people.” Larisa Strickland
