Winton College and the Bournemouth Arrow

The club’s ‘home base’ is at Winton Arts and Media College in Ensbury Park, conveniently placed right next to Bournemouth’s new 250m outdoor track at Slades Farm. The club has a partnership with the college whereby we use their facilities for coaching and club meetings as well as store the club’s own 6 Wattbike indoor trainers.

The Wattbikes are available for supervised use by Arrow members during weekday evenings in term time.

As a club night, every Friday from October to April, we use the Wattbikes to run Development Group Training (mostly 13 – 16 year olds) from 5.00pm, adult track focussed training from 6.00pm and adult time trial focussed training from 7.00pm. Numbers are limited so booking in advance is necessary through p.fairbank@ntlworld.com.

Such is the demand that other sessions are also run on occasions by Arrow coaches, Tuesdays by Dave Gilham and some Wednesdays by Anne Stevens. Free to all members, these sessions are aimed at experienced riders for competition preparation.
