Cadence Performance has one aim in mind and that is to improve its customers performance on the bike

As cyclists ourselves we have spent a fair share of time in bike shops, bike fitting centres, high street chain coffee shops after a ride but we have never been anywhere where you can have all of this but under one roof. Well, that is what Cadence is!

We are based in Crystal Palace so we are sandwiched between the city and the rolling Kent hills, so stop by when you’re out for a ride and see what we have to offer (click here for our location)

What Others Say About Us

  • Great store with good coffee and nice treats. Had a bike fitting done here with Rohan and it really has improved my ride and understanding of my bike fit. Well worth the money spent.

  • Retul fitting in January 2013 as a pre-requisite for some serious pre-Etape winter training. Awesome service and the cheapest Retul in London by far. Thank you guys.

  • Ciaran’s coaching program displays clear evidence of an individualized approach and due consideration to monitoring and re-evaluation of the scientific support. An extremely good factor is that the coach brings in client-specific detail and needs (e.g. availability etc) to the training needs analysis, going beyond the ‘textbook’ physiological needs analysis, which helps greatly with implementation of a coaching program. Continued monitoring, re-evaluation and adjustment if necessary is an essential component of good athlete support, which this program displays clearly. This is a very comprehensive coaching approach and the support provided is obviously tailored to the client and as such is what would be expected in a sports science support clinic.

  • Training with Ciaran at Cadence since January 1st has been excellent and provided the motivation needed to keep me on my bike through sometimes miserable weather. He has produced a systematic training plan that has seen my performance steadily improve on sequential Threshold tests. His feedback of his rationale and explanation of sports physiology has made the process interesting and understandable. And I'll have lost 10 kgms by the time I reach the Dolomites in June. Highly recommended!

  • Had a lactate test with Ciaran. Superb. Nice meal at the cafe as well. What a fantastic place. If I lived in London anywhere near Crystal Palace I would spend a lot of time here. Best bike shop in London!

  • Cycling Max Test conducted by Ciaran O'Grady. This was a really useful thing to have done for me. I now have loads of information that I can tap in to when on the Watt bike or out riding. It concentrates ones efforts on to what might really help improve one's fitness. Brilliant stuff. I was pretty apprehensive about what the test would entail, but it was fine, particularly with Ciaran encouraging that last ounce of effort out of you near the ragged end. I have now been recommending said procedure to all and sundry. It helped the clouds to be lifted in the sometimes confusing mesh of cycling/training/running/swimming that I do, and has given me a bit of understanding about what is achieving what....Fantastic! And, by the way, Ciaran was extremely clear and helpful. The next step is now to book a training programme. Thanks.

  • Lactate Threshold Test. Strange that something ultimately so unpleasant should be enjoyable - but it was!Ciaran explained the process very clearly beforehand. As the test progressed and the pain increased so did Ciaran's encouragement. The final report is remarkably comprehensive and very well presented. A good starting point in the coaching process.

  • "I had already followed a training plan I found on a website to help me build fitness towards my first century ride. Having done a few of those and lots of other sportives, I became curious to find out what kind of racing would suit me best and how I could go about training for that. I needed some goals and a plan to get me there. So I started a training plan at Cadence with Ciaran and haven't looked back since! I'm a numbers person and really like how Ciaran uses his deep knowledge of sports science to describe the specifics of your fitness data - there are no generalisations, it's all specific to your case and your needs. You don't get that from magazines and websites. Ciaran also understands that not all cyclists have the free time they want to follow Plan A - he is responsive to changes in my plans and happily adapts my training schedule to meet my needs. Highly recommended!"
