TaGCycle ™ are cycling workouts that come from our massive archives of personal training on the way to 4 Olympic Appearances. These were developed with input from our finest coaching mentors and Canadian Olympic Coaches. Lesley Tomlinson and Gina Grain are both Cycling Olympians.
Join TaGCycle ™ indoors with a selection of 1hr workouts. Each week the workouts are specifically made to improve your fitness in the off season and to prepare you for the cycling outdoor season.
The bikes we train with enable us to share with you decades of our Olympic training using “Wattage” and “Cadence”. Wattage is how hard you are pushing on the pedals, a measure of Power. Cadence is how fast your legs are moving. The workout is tailored to your individual needs by offering a fitness “test” (after an orientation session). This fitness “test” is not to see if you are fit or not, but rather to determine the wattages that you will be training/riding with to improve your fitness.
One of the added benefits of riding with TaG, is that as professional cyclists, we understand the importance of fitting the bike properly and using proper footwear and pedals.
Your bikes will be set up for you to your specifications prior to every class. You just have to hop on. Riders may use road or mtb pedals and shows of their choice
We coach indoor classes at #201 758 Copping St. North Vancouver . Park in any stall that says “TeeTime Holdings” or “Reserved” (with no other business name with it). There is also plenty of street parking. Parking is Free.
About Lesley Tomlinson and Gina Grain who are both Cycling Olympians.
Lesley Tomlinson and Gina Grain are both Cycling Olympians. They have joined forces to provide opportunities to share their knowledge and experiences in the disciplines of mountain biking, road, and track cycling with cycling enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
The sport of Cycling is a lifestyle sport that embodies Freedom, Adventure and Fitness.
For most of 2 decades, we have had endless doors opened by cycling. We have explored new terrain and conquered miles and mountain passes all over the World.
Cycling is very social and relatively boundless in opportunity. Some of our greatest friendships have come from spending hours with team mates and training groups on the bike.
We have cycled at the highest levels on the Road, Mountain Bike and Track learning the style and rewards that each discipline has to offer.
The past year we have worked with over 100 new and not so new to cycling, riders. Our mission has been to share our knowledge and experience so our clients can enjoy the sport more, and in a compressed time frame to achieving competence and confidence.
Between us our accomplishments include:
Competing in 3 Olympic Games between 1996 and 2008.
Commonwealth Games and Pan American Championship Medals accumulated from 1994 to 2006.
Gina has been the US Pro Tour Champion on the road and is a Silver Medallist at the 2006 World Track Championships.
Lesley has twice been World Champion in 24hr Endurance Mountain Biking and is 2 Time Trans Alp Challenge Champion.

Oh yes…Gina has won the Gastown Grand Prix Criterium 3 times! Lesley has won both the Test of Metal and Cheakamus Challenge and Provincial Road Championships…if we need some local achievements…
More importantly…we LOVE cycling. Which is what helped us achieve many goals over the years.
