FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Find Your Answers Below
+ HOW DO I START?
Check our SCHEDULE for the class most convenient for you. Then sign up online to RESERVE your ride or call the studio. If you are new to indoor cycling, please arrive 15 minutes early so we can show you the "set-up" and the "basics". The resistance knob on each bike allows you to control the pedal speed. Start slowly and as you get more comfortable with technique, the challenge is in changing speed, resistance, and intensity.
+ DO I NEED TO SIGN ANYTHING BEFORE I START?
Before your first ride, you need to sign a waiver. If you are under 18, you need one signed by a parent IN PERSON. Please arrive at the studio 10-15 minutes before your ride, so we can give you a tour of the studio, assist you with any questions, and help adjust your bike.
+ Can I rent out the studio for a private event (birthdays, bridal parties, special occasions etc.)?
Absolutely, for any private event inquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org
+ Do you offer discounts if I buy more than one class at a time?
Yes, we offer a per class system or provide you with Class Package options that are discounted based upon the Class Package you select. The more you ride, the more LOVE we show you!

Riders are always welcome to take a class without signing up in advance. Walk-ins are always welcome. However, without a reservation, we cannot guarantee that your preferred bike will be available. You can book your bike and classes for the week in studio, by phone, or through our website.
+ If I'm going to a class with friends, do we all need to book separately?

We suggest rocking a muscle tee or tank top and form-fitting pants or shorts on the bottom. Avoid long, loose-fitting pants that risk being tangled in the bike. We require all riders to wear "SPD clip in" shoes that clip into the pedals for a smoother ride. Don't sweat it if you don't have them, in the meantime, we have a dual-sided pedal that has a cage on one side, and SPD-compatible clips on the other if you're wearing cycling shoes.
