Manchester 100 Cycle Event with Team ASV

Manchester 100

Thinking of joining Team ASV for the Manchester 100 bike ride? But daunted by the distance or length of time it could possibly take? Don’t be! Here at ASV our staff are on hand to advise you of the correct exercises and training you should be doing to not only complete the 60+ mile event but also have fun whilst doing it.

The event takes place on September the 3rd, giving you plenty of time to train and prepare for the event and go there on the day feeling full of confidence and ready to enjoy the experience. Training rides will be arranged (Dates TBC), and gym based programmes will be prescribed to get you in the best shape to complete the event. Advice regards bike issues will also be given. We will also run regular exercise workshops.

5 Training Tips for completing the Event

  1. Develop your Core- These muscles will stabilise your body, making pedalling more efficient, powerful and reduce risk of injury or lower back discomfort.
  2. Get on the Bike- Build confidence and fitness by training on the piece of kit you will use on the day.
  3. Train in the correct Heart Rate Zone- You could be in the saddle for 4 hours plus, building your muscular endurance and aerobic capacity is a must.
  4. Strengthen your Posterior Chain- lower back, glutes, hamstrings and calves. These muscles are often neglected when training but are important to improve your cycling performance.
  5. Enjoy your training- The more you enjoy it, the better you will do. Come to one of the planned training sessions, meet other members and train in pairs or groups.

Junior Hockey Returns To Astley Sports Village!

Following a very successful Primary School Hockey Tournament in November 2017, we as a facility along with key partners Tameside School Sports Partnership, City of Manchester HC & England Hockey wanted to bring a weekly junior session that is accessible and affordable for local boys & girls!

Hockey participation in Tameside reduced significantly in years gone by and our aim is to get local children back playing hockey from beginners to those more experienced.

We have a superb team of coaches from our key partner club City Of Manchester here every Sunday at 10:00am who will teach the children new skills and develop their skills each week whilst making the sessions fun for all the children who attend.

Since the session launched in January 2018 we have seen a regular 20+ attend this session with a mix of both boys & girls of a wide range of abilities all attending each week!

Sessions are only £2 per child and we provide all the equipment for your children. The session is open to all boys & girls in school years 3,4,5&6 and we hope to see lots more children coming along over the coming weeks.
