Olympian Rebecca Romero will be visiting St Ives on April 16 and One Leisure are giving people the chance to ride alongside her.

The athlete will be headlining the launch of indoor cycling session, ‘Cyclone Masterclass’, which will be introduced to One Leisure centres from April 18.

The masterclass event is limited to 99 places and will be led by Rebecca, who will be testing out new IC7 indoor cycles provided by Matrix Fitness.

The bikes work by using a ‘Coach by Colour’ programme, enabling the rider to tailor the sessions to their ability. This means people of all capabilities can train in the same session.

Five colours, grey, blue, green, yellow and red range from ‘very light’ to ‘maximum’ workouts and sit in front of the rider.
