Despite the amount of sweating that goes on at Pedal Spin Studio, each boutique location is kept in pristine condition, offering guests a high-energy and regimented way to get in shape and stay that way. Pedal Spin's indoor cycling sessions are backed by fast-paced playlists to amp up exercisers as they climb hills and sprint through straightaways without ever leaving the room. Some Pedal Spin locations complement these workouts with TRX suspension training, Pilates, and group strength training, all of which help build muscle so that you can eventually flip over a whole buffet table.
A triathlete since 2004, Brandon Hament knows cycling's physical rigors and benefits firsthand. At The Cycle Annex - the indoor cycling facility Brandon has run since 2007 - his crew of instructors imbue beginners with pedal-pumping confidence at introductory sessions during which pupils first familiarize themselves with their bike before hopping on and burning calories. For cycling students of all levels, Brandon's team lead more intensive workouts such as the Ultimate 90, a combination of core and strength training that segues into an hour of riding. An abdominal workout on yoga mats follows cycling during AB 20 sessions, while interval cycling gives way to running and stretching during brick workouts. In between exercises, guests can hydrate with complementary gulps of The Cycle Annex's oxygenated, filtered water.

The atmosphere is charged with energy at the Kinetic Cycling studio, where flat-screen TVs play music videos and surround-sound speakers blast upbeat tunes. Soft lights beam up from the floor, bathing the rows of students pedaling away on stationary bicycles in blue and purple. During classes, an energetic instructor sits atop a bike in front of students, guiding them through the challenging workouts while providing inspiration and motivation.
Wheel Fun Rentals’ gleaming fleet of pedal-powered wheelmobiles rejuvenate the line between points A and B. Shiny cruisers ($10/hr. at Lake Balboa; $12/hr. at Shoreline) await solo cyclists, and tandems ($15/hr. or $35/full day) act as catalysts for the perfect outdoor date for a sun-seeking couple or a farmer and his prized pumpkin. A four-wheeled single surrey ($20/hr.)—the mutant offspring of a golf cart and paddleboat—comfortably accommodates three adults and two children, and up to six adults and a pair of children can pile into a double surrey ($30/hr.) and attempt to break the sound barrier.
