Innovative bikes take the elliptical experience outdoors as riders burn up to 1,000 calories per hour on upright, three-wheeled cycle. Riders can choose from three outdoor courses listed here, as well as a fourth, 1.2-mile course at Carl Hankey Elementary in Mission Viejo.<p>
ElliptiFitOC's fleet of StreetStrider cycles combines the unique riding maneuvers of a traditional elliptical machine with the mechanics of an outdoor bicycle, freeing the once immobile elliptical from a stuffy indoor existence while fostering low-impact, cardiovascular workouts that engage all muscle groups. Riders cruise under the cover of umbrella-like palm leaves as they step and glide through courses that carve past the glassy waters of Santa Margarita Lake or the flying monkey trees of Barbadanes Park. Each riding session lasts 45 minutes and allows exercisers to glide at their own pace or race against the clock to see how many laps they can complete. Riders must be 12 or older and can schedule a group ride or private, one-on-one lesson by clicking here.
