06/08/12 With Olympic fever sweeping the nation, everyone is looking to the competing athletes for their sporting and fitness inspiration. There are no more inspiring individuals in this country than Great Britain’s greatest ever Olympian’s Sir Chris Hoy and Bradley Wiggins. So with inspiration in abundance, Future Publishing’s www.BikeRadar.com is providing the tools for you to improve your cycling skills and general fitness. Who knows maybe you could be the next big cycling success story!
BikeRadar Training lets you log all your training in your own training diary, download professional training plans, set personal training goals, measure your performance and fitness, share routes and keep track of biking events. There are monthly challenges with a number of prizes and challenges to encourage you to keep going.
Olympic women’s rowing champions Helen Glover and Heather Stanning have only been rowing for four and six years respectively, proving it really is never too late to reach your sporting dreams. So why not give BikeRadar Training a try to realise your sporting potential?
For this month’s challenge BikeRadar has partnered with Mio for the King of the Mountain Challenge and anyone who logs over 3050m of climbing by Aug 31 will be entered into a prize draw to win a Mio Cyclo 305 HC.
Jeff Jones, editor of BikeRadar.com, says: “I’ve been inspired by the Tour de France and the Olympics this year and have just logged my hardest ever month on the bike on BikeRadar Training. It keeps you honest and helps you push further. The resultant satisfaction you get from being fitter than you’ve ever been is unbeatable.”
If you’re not a mountain goat then fear not, as anyone who logs over 1000m of climbing by Aug 31st will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 10 BikeRadar Training T-shirts! There will also be weekly random spot-prizes for members in the group! These could be for anything from an interesting user image to greatest time climbing or most inventive username.
