Riders Feedback:

"Having entered Ride London, I signed up for the Njinga Cycling's Ride London Group Indoor Training Programme following an enlightening presentation on preparing for such an event by Togo from Njinga. The team is welcoming, infectiously enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about all things cycling, working with you to achieve your goals. The RL programme was excellent, covering the nutritional, mental and physical components such my fitness greatly improved. I've gone from being a novice on a road bike to confidently using cleats & cycling with others (my goals) in just a few weeks." Simon Robinson

"From week one it was obvious that this was not going to be your average spinning classes! Njinga philosophy incorporating nutrition, physical and mental strengthen was clearly something that was truly lived and breathed by everyone who is part of the team." Karen Hammond

"Training on the wattbike and with the team at Njinga has undoubtedly helped me to take my performance to a whole new level. I’ve learned to train efficiently and effectively. Trying to fit training around a full time job and a busy life is always challenging, but the Njinga classes are a great way to guarantee a quality work out in a short space of time. There are simply no wasted or junk miles and you can make the absolute most of the training time you have available." Jo Billings
