Riding a stationary bike combines the safety of a fitness centre with the thrill of mountain biking, just as riding a stationary goat combines the safety of a petting zoo with the thrill of encountering a pack of hungry wolves.

360 Cycle's troupe of experienced and passionate instructors guide spinners of all levels through a variety of indoor cycling classes to the backdrop of mountain landscapes in an airy, open studio. Join the Cycle 50 class that leads two-wheelers through 50 minutes of spinning, or glide into the Cycle and Pilates session to blend the lower body burn from cycling with flexibility-building Pilates methods. Bone cages receive a complete overhaul during 20/20/20 sessions⎯a one-hour class divided evenly with 20 minutes each of cycling, upper-body work, and core work, for a physique strong enough to masquerade as a Tetris block. Each student navigates the direction of their workout as cyclists control resistance, speed, and overall exertion during the classes that provide a nonimpact way to burn fat. View the schedule for a complete listing of class times, and reserve a bike ahead of time to ensure a spot in your desired classes.
Though 360 Cycle sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
360 Cycle's instructors will tell you that there's a big difference between their spinning and cycling classes. Cycling focuses on specific skills that ready students for the road. It can simulate outdoor riding, with hill climbs or even timed "races." Spinning, meanwhile, contains a variety of drills that exercise the entire body, even that one toe that's usually just slacking off.
The trainers here host several classes within both these categories. For example, Let's Ride! sessions simulate peddling under intense road conditions, while Cycle & Sculpt follows thirty minutes of cycling with thirty minutes of weight exercises. Best of all, because students control how hard they pedal, workouts are completely customizable, making them accessible for people of all ages and fitness levels.
