The four leisure centres in Fenland have 95 new hi tech exercise bikes that are said to rival top boutique cycling studios in London.
Freedom Leisure, the not-for-profit firm, which operates the four centres in the district on behalf of Fenland District Council, has invested more than £100,000 in the equipment.
The kit will relaunch the cycling studios at George Campbell Leisure Centre in March, Manor Leisure Centre in Whittlesey, the Hudson Leisure Centre in Wisbech and Chatteris Leisure Centre.
Andy Cornwell, centre manager, said: “The primary aim for this investment is to build upon our already established indoor cycling programme because indoor cycling has always been really popular in Fenland.
“The new, state-of-the-art, enhanced and unique experience will hopefully support both existing participants while also working to appeal to new customers to join us.
“As a leisure trust, Freedom Leisure exists to support local communities to be more active.
“Indoor cycling is a hugely accessible activity and this new kit makes it even more so. It means that people of all ages and abilities can join in, and that the studios can now be used by even more people.
