The full Group Cycle programme will be fully launched into the Bolton Arena fitness timetable on 7th November
We have scheduled FTP test classes from 25th October:
An FTP test is a simple way of determining your current cycling performance level.
FTP is the gold standard measure for cycling performance and it’s useful in all types of events from sprint triathlons all the way through to multi-stage cycle races like the Tour De France – and now Group Cycle™ Connect!
Knowing your own FTP enables you to track your progress, analyse your rides and set accurate pacing strategies for your key events. The term FTP stands for Functional Threshold Power and it’s a measure of the best average power output you could sustain for 1 hour in a time-trial scenario.
By having this data connected to your Bolton Arena app/Mywellness account, when you take part in Group Cycle™ Connect your ride is personalised for you based upon your data and you can take full advantage of this great workout.
You can test your FTP on the Technogym indoor cycle bikes – speak to a member of the gym team and they will help you set this up. Alternatively we have pre organised FTP Test classes now available to book on the Bolton Arena app.
A RIDE FOR EVERYONE
With three new riding experiences, explore the Peak, FreeBeat and Virtual classes. Combining music, visual effects and performance together all in one place, that encourages you to get out of your comfort zone.
Keep your cardio workout fresh with different tailored classes based around your FTP – find the perfect workout whether you are looking for fun, cardio burn, a competitive live leader board display, or intense interval training.
With motivation and encouragement from our instructors, you decide how far to push yourself, our instructors are there to guide and encourage you the whole ride.

Group Cycle is a great class to get motivated and get the endorphins flowing. Plus, you can burn anywhere from 600-plus calories depending on your intensity and how long you’re in the saddle.
