Low Impact Rides
Low Impact Rides allow you to build a solid foundation by focusing on form, technique, and execution. With a combination of milder terrains and moderate-intensity drills, these workouts build baseline fitness levels and promote active recovery.
Endurance Rides incorporate the variables of time and tempo across milder terrains, helping you establish a solid foundation and build baseline fitness levels.
When you want to maintain strength and performance, try...
Power Rides get their name from the power generated by combined resistance and leg speed, also known as cadence. These interval rides switch up speed, load, and time to increase strength and stamina and spike post-workout metabolic activity.
When you are looking for something unique, try…
Zumba® Party Ride
Zumba® Party Ride is an Echelon-exclusive bike class where connected cycling meets high-energy Zumba® music and choreography.
When you want to let music rule your ride, try…
Cadence Rides veer away from “rules of the road riding,” providing interval training for the music-driven athlete. Rhythm riding combined with full-body strengthening works all muscle groups—glutes, quads, core, and upper body.
When your ready to push your personal record, try…
Pedal through perceived limits as you generate and sustain speed on flat roads and mild climbs at higher cadences. Speed Rides allow you to push your boundaries, improving anaerobic threshold and overall aerobic capacity.
All Out Rides
All Out Rides are great benchmark classes where you’ll practice and develop skills that directly translate to greater output on the leaderboard, and you can revisit these classes to see how you improve over time. They are an all-out effort, so it’s a good idea to take a Warm Up Rides class before joining.
When you want to mix things up, try…
In Bike Bootcamp classes, your workout begins with a ride and ends with floor exercises. These classes are best taken while wearing regular sneakers and utilizing the toe cages on your pedals.
Fusion Rides challenge physical and mental agility and are a medley workout of our favorite drills – strength, power, and speed.
When you want to break through barriers, try…
Tabata Rides are a form of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) using short bursts of all-out effort, followed by brief recoveries to promote aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. Effort and rest are a 2:1 ratio, respectively.
Hill Rides are one of the more challenging ride classes we offer. These workouts will help build strength and cardiovascular endurance while working the largest muscle groups. The classes combine steep climbs, moderate grade climbs, and rolling hills with bursts of speed.
When you are looking for a self-guided workout, try…
Scenic Rides are self-guided workout sessions during which your screen displays a moving video of biking in a specific location, instead of an instructor leading the class.
