Bicyclists often train on indoor courses, as outdoor tracks are prone to sprouting unexpected obstacles such as trees, policemen, and flaming hoops. Cycle in certainty with today's Groupon: for $26, you get an indoor biking package at Joyride150 Indoor Bike Park in Markham (up to a $53 total value). The package includes:
- A club card that covers Joyride150's one-time-only startup fee (a $5 value)
- A day pass to the indoor park (up to a $28 value)
- Rental of bike, helmet, and pads (a $20 value)
Joyride150's indoor cycling park challenges riders of all ages and experience levels with 90,000 square feet of undulating, weather-controlled terrain. Equipped with the helmet, protective pads, and rental bike of their choice, riders eschew physics' restrictive rules on beginner, expert, and sport courses laced with winding skinnies crafted from logs, stones, and hewn stumps. A BMX-style vertical stunt park embodies the centuries-old struggle between cyclists and cartographers with mountainous drop-ins, quarter pipes, and bowls. When not rehearsing trebuchet impressions into the park's wide foam pit, riders conquer the elevated ramps and natural features of a 900-metre cross-country trail.
Joyride150's multidisciplinary staff shepherds indoor athletes with extensive experience and riding backgrounds. Riders mount an array of rental steeds from brands such as Norco, Dartmoor, and Jamis free from the obsessive shoe-collecting penchant of traditional horses. Cyclists relax by the concession booth or in the park's lounge, seated at TVs or fireplaces to discuss the changing trends in great motorcycle migrations.
