New to Echelon or wondering how to get started with an at-home fitness routine? Begin your fitness journey with Echelon’s exclusive Start Here: Connect Bike welcome challenge! 

Enjoy a series of 5- and 10-minute sample workouts that introduce you to our variety of cycling classes and instructors. You’ll walk away from the challenge feeling motivated and ready to dive deeper into the Echelon experience.

Here is what you can expect:


Bike Set up - Lindsay

Learn the basics of setting up your bike for a comfortable and efficient ride.


Welcome Ride 5 - Sam

Welcome to Start Here. Through these classes, you will get a taste of the variety of rides available for Connect Bikes.


Fusion 10 - Sage

Fusion Rides challenge physical and mental agility and are a medley workout of our favorite drills – strength, power, and speed.


Bootcamp 10 - Michael

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.


Tabata 10 - Mari

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.


Hills 10 - Susanna

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.


Cadence 10 - Lindsay

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.


Power 10 - Nicole

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.


Low Impact 10 - Jama

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.


Speed 10 - Demi

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.


HRZ 10 - Dani

Push your way through the five heart rate zones in this science-based ride. Each class focuses on on a different zone to improve your anaerobic and aerobic capacity. 


Once you’ve found your favorite way to ride, get to know our wide range of Connect Bike classes to keep your fitness routine exciting and challenging.
