Team Breeze Group Workouts
We’ve enlisted the help of Team Breeze coach and personal trainer, Emma Trott, to help keep you active and motivated at this time with a series of on-bike and off-bike workouts.
The workout series will happen every Monday and Friday at 12.00pm for those looking for a blast during their lunch break and 7.30pm for the usual evening Zwift warriors. A Team Breeze rider will join every virtual session.
It doesn’t matter if you’re keeping fit, young at heart, wise beyond your years, or baffled by gears - everyone is welcome to join!

BRITISH CYCLING’S COMMITMENT TO WOMEN
British Cycling recently announced that it reached its target of getting one million more women on bikes by 2020, a cornerstone of the organisation’s ongoing ambition to reduce the historic gender gap within the sport.
In launching its women’s strategy in 2013, British Cycling set out its vision to ‘inspire one million more women to ride, race and be part of British Cycling by 2020’. Then, according to British Cycling’s market data, 550,000 women cycled on a regular basis. Since then, 1,023,271 more women have been influenced to ride a bike.
Along with the headline figure of getting one million more women on bikes, the strategy also aimed to create opportunities to ride and race, develop a pathway that keeps women engaged, get more women running the sport, get more women involved in governing the sport and increase female membership.

ABOUT GROUP WORKOUTS
Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.
We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level. For more info on FTP click here.
