We’re stoked to be sponsoring the Virgin Active 947 Ride Joburg events taking place in November and we’ve got loads of ways to help you get the time in the saddle you need.

Virgin Active 947 Ride Joburg Simulation Classes

We are excited to be able to present Simulation classes at our clubs across the country from 15 August! These simulation classes will assist in preparing your legs and lungs for your best ride at the Virgin Active Ride Joburg 947 event!

These 1hr simulation classes are presented as 4 different segments of the Virgin Active 947 Ride Joburg route and collectively cover the route profile from the start to the finish of the race.   

The 4 different class segments cover the first 24kms, the second 24kms, the third 24kms and the last 22kms of the race. Attend all 4 segment classes and you will have experienced the route before you get there on the 20 November!  

Delivered by our rockstar spinning instructors who will guide you, with great beats, through the ups, flats and downs of the route, noting iconic landmarks along the way.  

Book your spot on the Virgin Active App and gear up for the class! Wear your cycling kit, it is always good to test out and get comfortable with what you are going to wear for the race! Our cycles have SPD-compatible pedals so bring along your cycling shoes, sweat towel, water bottle and remember your device to record your session.
