Former British National Cycling Champion to open new cycling zone

A new Wattbike cycling zone at the Rotherham Leisure Complex is set to be opened by former British Champion, Dean Downing.

Rotherham’s own Downing will be running a cycling Master Class to celebrate the opening of the fully immersive cycling zone with everyone in attendance given the chance to enter in to a free prize draw.

Steve Marshall, Wattbike’s Head of UK Sales, said, “To be working with a company like Places for People on a project like this is an exciting time for us. “Everyone at the Rotherham Leisure Complex has really embraced cycling and the zone concept. They have identified there is a strong cycling community in the city and addressed that, but they have also seen the health and fitness appeal for the beginners.”

Mark Rawding, Places for People Leisure, Contract Manager, said, “Rotherham has a very strong cycling fraternity so giving cyclist’s somewhere to train on a high-tech bike was an easy decision. “Having this zone also fits in well with our pool and gym to give all our customers a better all-round fitness experience at every level.”

Whether a seasoned cyclist or a total novice, everyone is welcome to the zone opening and can benefit from the expertise of the former professional cyclist, Downing, who will be on hand to offer tips and advice. Attendees are required to sign up for the cycling Master Class at reception or by calling Rotherham Leisure Complex on 01709 722555. Everyone attending will be entered in to a free prize draw for a chance to win a road bike , and a year’s membership to the Rotherham Leisure Complex worth £1000.
