Wattbike win an exclusive contract with Places for People Leisure. The Wattbike is viewed by many as the best indoor bike you can buy. Many believe it is the closest feeling you will get to cycling on the road and it will measure how you do with the most precise intelligent data.
The design of the bike was done in partnership with Olympic cyclists, so you know it is the very best. In fact you can measure over 40 parameters about your riding.
It has now been announced that Wattbike has been appointed as the preferred supplier for indoor cycling equipment for Places for People Leisure which is a three year contract. The procurement process was competitive and it was agreed up front that the indoor cycling equipment award would be exclusive. Places for People have 113 leisure centres across England experiencing 30 million visits each year.
The first to receive the Wattbike will be their Wycombe leisure centre which was a new £25 million centre which opened earlier this year.
Some of the leisure centres will simply get two bikes but others will be lucky enough to get a zone of 6 cycling options. For members of this leisure group it is an amazing opportunity to use such leading edge bikes.
John Oxley, chief operating officer of Places for People leisure said “The Wattbike is an outstandingly versatile product, capable of meeting the needs of a wide variety of our customers. We see the Wattbike complementing our traditional gym floor cycles as well as our group cycling offering. It will broaden our indoor cycling provision and allow much more choice, accuracy and quality to our customers and expand the opportunities for our instructors and personal trainers.”
In addition to the bikes themselves members will also benefit from the Wattbike bub which is something like a portable personal trainer allowing the user to personalise their training. It creates programmes for the user as well as feedback on performance.
