Njinga Launches Luxurious UK Endurance Road Cycling Tours For Amateur and Intermediate Riders

Endurance road cycling and holistic health meet unexpected luxury from this month as Njinga Cycling, the premium cycle tours and training brand with a conscience, begins its first ever spring season. The release of the 2013 schedule comes after the success of their pilot training season and weekend away, coupled with a desire to get more people cycling and active. Aimed at novice and intermediate road cyclists, Njinga promises to focus and fuel both mind and body, with a series of fully catered weekend tours designed to put the fun back into fitness.

Co-Founder Togo Keynes said, “We want our clients to smile as much as they sweat so we have designed each of our luxury endurance road cycling weekend packages to test peak physical abilities and push each person to their limits, while still having fun. As part of the Me Organic brand, our holistic approach to road cycling tours allows us to share delicious meals, helpful nutritional advice and top-notch accommodation, ensuring that each day begins with as much energy and excitement as the last.”

Led by certified holistic health coaches, avid endurance road cyclists, a cycling coach, sky ride leader and personal trainer, Njinga specialises in organising luxury endurance road cycling weekends away for small groups. Each weekend is fully catered and includes delicious, healthy and wholesome meals as well as professional nutritional support pre, during and post cycling to improve energy levels, performance and stimulate faster recovery. Weekends take place within three hours of London with routes carefully planned to take in the best of the British countryside. Depending on the group, weekends see participants cycle between 40-75 miles or take part in organised Sportives of varying distances.

Njinga is a perfect introduction for people new to endurance road cycling and intermediate level riders who want to improve their confidence, fitness, technique and efficiency, whether they plan to complete their first 100 mile ride or want to complete a cycling challenge such as riding from London to Paris.

Njinga is unique in that their cycle training and/or weekends away are accompanied with a wealth of quality information to help riders improve their cycling and to live a healthy lifestyle. Its team of experts provide advice on how to fuel the body for better cycling performance and offer fitness training tips including key exercises for cycling and pre and post stretching.

In addition to its ultra enjoyable excursions, the brand will go back to its roots on every expedition, donating 5% of its profits to Re~Cycle, a unique charity dedicated to collecting unwanted bicycles and shipping them to Africa.

Co-founder Leigh Rogers said, “Our name ‘Njinga’ means bicycle in the Malawian language Chichewa. We chose this name because of our African roots – co-founder Togo was born in Malawi and loved cycling and I was born in South Africa to a cycling family.”

Re~Cycle founder and CEO Merlin Matthews said, “Re~Cycle is delighted to be partnering with Njinga Cycling. Knowing Africa and being keen cyclists, they are in both groups of people who really understand how our work transforms lives in Africa, in the short and long term."
