Pulse Triathlon Club currently runs two spin classes, one on Tuesday mornings the other on Wednesday evenings. Classes take place in a state of the art spin studio at Westpark Fitness in Tallaght. These classes are great for improving your pedalling technique and building your stamina.
Group cycles are a great way of developing bike handling skills and road confidence, and improving your endurance, while benefiting from the support and motivation that a group provides. We provide members with an option of cycling in groups that are tailored to their abilities and fitness levels. See our Group Cycling page for more information.
Group Turbo Training
Weather conditions in January and February cause a lot of disruption to outdoor cycle sessions, so for these months we move indoors and onto turbo trainers. We provide the hall, you bring along your bike and turbo trainer, and our Pulse coaches will provide the tunes and session plan. One of the major benefits of using a turbo trainer is you can closely control your workout environment. Your workouts become repeatable and measurable, and it becomes possible to do very specific interval training without the worry of dodging cars.
Bike Time Trials
During the year, we hold a number of time trial events on quiet roads around the Blessington Lakes in Wicklow. Bike time trialling has a number of benefits for triathletes. It is useful for benchmarking fitness, predicting goal race pace, learning race pacing, and simulating race conditions amongst other benefits. Cycle time trials replicate the type of riding you do in a triathlon, where it’s just you versus the clock, without the advantage of being shielded by a peloton. So it makes perfect sense to do them in training.
