Wattbike Advanced Technical Workshop

Delivered by Wattbike’s sport scientist Eddie Fletcher, the Advanced Technical Workshop provides a detailed insight into how the Wattbike works. Following the workshop, you will understand how the Wattbike can be used to conduct fitness tests and cycling specific tests. You will also learn how to prescribe exercise and training on a Wattbike, using the powerful analysis capability of the Wattbike Performance Monitor and software to measure and analyse performance. 

This intense one day Workshop is aimed at serious cyclists, coaches, health and fitness professionals who want to understand the science behind the Wattbike. It assumes a good level of scientific and physiological understanding.

During the day you will learn about:

  • All the Wattbike Performance Monitor functions - A detailed look at all the display screens
  • How the Wattbike works, its accuracy, the importance of air resistance, cadence and power relationships - Understanding power (Watts) and how to use it
  • How to assess the correct cycling position on a Wattbike - The general principles of bike set up
  • The importance of and how to assess and improve pedalling technique - A detailed look at pedalling technique using the Wattbike’s unique force curve (Polar view) using practical examples and material created during the workshop
  • How to use the Wattbike Expert analysis software and basic performance analysis - Delving into the powerful analysis capabilities of Wattbike Expert software using practical examples and material created during the workshop
  • Fitness and Cycling Testing using the Wattbike & Wattbike Expert Software - Types and appropriateness of different test methodologies on the Wattbike using practical examples and material created during the workshop
  • Introduction to Power Cycling software and the Wattbike’s digital platform, the Wattbike Hub

Whilst we will not be asking you to work ‘hard’ much of the ‘learning’ is practical and you will spend time on the Wattbike. You will need appropriate clothing (including a towel) – showers are available. If you have your own pedals feel free to bring them with you. The Wattbike has normal toe clips on one side and SPD fitting on the other.

The day will start at 9:30 am and finish at approximately 4:30 pm. The Workshops are held at the Wattbike Test and Training Centre based at Fletcher Sport Science Ltd, Stewart House, Enterprise Way, Vale Business Park, Evesham, WR11 1GS

Cost £299pp


I thoroughly enjoyed the training day with Eddie last week. Quite simply, it was the best training course I have been on for very many years.
