Welcome to Henley

June brings the United Kingdom to EXR and vice versa! First of all, we’re proud to announce our new strategic partnership with British Rowing! Together, we’ll make indoor rowing more accessible, popular and fun. Thanks to this partnership, you can now find the EXR booth at events such as the upcoming British Rowing Master Championships this June. The second British surprise is the new map that’s located in idyllic England.

Finally, we’re unveiling EXR’s new map and as some of you have already guessed correctly, it’s Henley-on-Thames! This beautiful town can be described as the mecca for rowing. It hosts world-famous races, making it Great Britain’s rowing hotspot. Explore the historic riverfront and discover what exciting landscapes lie beyond the horizon…


Your English adventure: Henley

The new EXR map located in the UK’s most famous rowing hotspot features 5 routes to make your workouts more exciting. Give it your all in 4 sprint segments and unlock the 2 new Henley achievements: Thames Raider (silver) and From Henley with Love (gold). Pass by Leander Club, row under Henley Bridge to approach Rod Eyod and make your way to unknown waters…

British Rowing partnership

We’re proud of our new, strategic partnership with British Rowing. The UK’s governing body for rowing takes care of everything related to the sport. From organizing world-class competitions to coaching beginners on how to use the erg, British Rowing is there to make (indoor) rowing fun and accessible. To bundle their knowledge and services, they’ve created Inside Indoor, a website where you can find technique tips, get new workout inspiration and stay up-to-date on events. To highlight our partnership, you’ll now find the logos of British Rowing and Inside Indoor on all of our maps.

In an upcoming EXR Blog post, Chris Farrell, British Rowing’s Project Manager for Indoor Rowing will reveal why British Rowing chose EXR as a partner and what benefits you can expect soon…
