The aim is to get you using the pool to improve your cycling. Richie does it. And we think it’s safe to say it works for him! Now you can make it work for you.


HARD CORE!
Use the pool to exercise those crucial core muscles to create the perfect platform for improved cycling performance.


PROTECT THOSE LEGS
Take pressure off your joints by working them through the water. You’ll improve both your resistance and recovery and at the end of the day, your knees will thank you!


GIVE IT A REST
Swimming helps relax your brain. So the old grey matter will be well rested and ready for action when you’re back in the saddle.


PLAYING THE LUNG GAME
Those big breaths you hold in the pool get put to great use on the bike. Endurance is improved, keeping those pedals pumping even longer.


GLAD ALL OVER
So all in all, and from head to toe, as Richie himself says “swimming is just a fantastic way of staying in shape...it works everything.”
