It’s free, just bring your trainer. If you want to see better fitness and training results for next season, now is the time to start building. This progressive training program will focus on building your strength, endurance and efficiency as a rider.
This is indoor cycling, not a spin class:
During a “traditional” spin class you are pedalling a stationary bicycle. While most stationary bikes have a weighted flywheel on the front (usually around 40 pounds) to mimic what you’d feel outdoors, this weight builds momentum as you spin, making it a little easier than pushing your own body weight on a flat road or up a hill — or on an actual bike in a trainer.
- When: 6:30 p.m.
- Where: Oak Bay Bicycles – 1990 Oak Bay Avenue
