Welcome to Bike2Max
We are a power-based indoor cycle training studio situated in Kenilworth, Cape Town. At Bike2Max Studio we help you become the best cyclist you can be. Utilizing the CycleOps Pro Indoor Cycle with built-in PowerTap technology and the VT Fitness training app, you train according to your personal goals and power training zones that will be determined when you sign up. Once you have signed up and performed your supervised assessment your daily training will be developed by a Sport Scientist and a Cycling South Africa coaches.
Specific Indoor Training
Although the sessions are run as classes, everyone does their own specific training, so the training sessions are thus completely specific to your requirements, rather than everyone doing the same session for a given class.
The training model at Bike2Max is that you do 2-3 supervised indoor sessions per week, with your remaining outdoor or home-based rides being less specific and usually less intense. Your fitness is determined by performing a specific test and a 20 minute maximal-effort ride (the so-called functional threshold power or FTP); the average power and associated heart rate from this rides are used to determine and confirm your training zones. The intensity of your training sessions is set according to power output, as a percentage of your 20 minute maximal sustainable effort while heart rate response is used as a secondary measure of the intensity. The sessions are generally 70 minutes in duration and longer session are allowed if the indoor stationary cycle is available beyond that class. Would you like to try a session? Click here.
For cyclists of different abilities and levels of fitness.
Your personalised program includes structured workouts that are centered around your individual factors - time constraints, history, current fitness level and realistic goals.
Your personalised training zone is determined by performing a specific test based on health history, current state of fitness and experience.
Workout observation and supervision enables us to make before and or during session adjustments, monitor training effort, provide feedback on technique and execution as well as noting improvements for future comparison.
To ensure a steady progression we analyse all your sessions, including the training that you don't do at the studio. Tracking your training enables us to update your workouts, lower the risk of illness, injury and burn-out as well as increase fitness development towards your goal.
Strava and TrainingPeaks integration allows sessions to automatically upload to your profiles.
Bike2Max uses CycleOps Phantoms a power-measuring indoor cycle and Rouvy software to tracking all values from the indoor cycle and sensors, Rouvy helps you stay motivated, train with more efficiency and have fun! To find out more click here.
