What you'll do

We'll fire up our video streams to meet in my home training lab. I'll show you my setup and we'll warm up together over group introductions. Here, we'll learn about each other’s favorite rides, tours, courses, and neighborhoods!

Over the next hour, I'll take you on a journey that weaves my life story and lessons learned from sport through five of my favorite rides around the world. In this virtual journey, each location will be its own marquee triathlon venue. We'll stop in Yorkshire, London, Leeds, and Rio, we’ll chat a bit at each stop.

In the beginning, I’ll take 5-10 minutes to share some photos from my experience and talk logistics—like what makes each course challenging. Then, we’ll have a 3-5 minute interval training session relating to the specifics of the course. Then, we’ll wrap everything up with some rest and time for questions. Throughout, you'll get an inside feel for my strategies and an understanding of how they led to success at each destination.

In the final ten minutes, as we cool down on the bike, I'll answer any questions about my training, my journey as an Olympian, my foundation, my kit, or my goals for the next year. Don't be shy! As we wrap up, I'll also give you an up-close and personal look at my medals.

My 14 year old brother joined this experience as he's a big fan of Jonny. I guarantee you he will always remember it. He learnt so much from all of Jonny's story telling, experience and advice, and just still can't believe he's ridden virtually with Jonny. Amazing experience!

Jonny Brownlee is a thoroughly authentic person. He is humble, kind and very interested in others. The idea of setting up the hour around talking through videos of his Olympic games experiences was excellent. Two of my friends were also on the experience and they both agreed it was unique and fascinating. This was made possible by Johnny being an excellent host.

This was an awesome experience! A great workout with some really cool stories and insights into Jonny's experience racing at the London and Rio Olympic Games that I definitely would not have gotten without this experience. Honestly, I didn't really know much about Jonny prior to this experience but now I'm a fan and will definitely be cheering for him when he races in Tokyo. I'm glad I signed up and would recommend this to anyone who likes cycling or wants a very unique and fun workout experience.

Very well thought out and executed, fitting the workout to the race videos was an excellent idea and worked well. It was excellent hearing his personal insights into the races, tactics and training. Lots of opportunities to ask questions.

Such a fantastic opportunity to ride with a multi Olympic medallist. The experience was well thought through and Johnny came across as really open and friendly throughout. As well as him telling stories there was plenty of time for us to ask questions. A must do experience for any triathlon fans
