Indoor Group Cycles
Indoor Group Cycle classes are offered during the winter months. These classes are instructed by a fully qualified cycling instructor who will get your heart pumping and help you improve your cardio. Each class begins with a warm-up ride, followed by high intensity intervals consisting of in- and out-of-the-saddle, jumps, sprints, all set to heart pounding music. We finish the class with a cool-down ride and stretch.

The BRIC workouts are designed for the beginner, experienced or competitive triathlete, and even those new to fitness in general. Participants will complete the workouts at their own paces. There will always be one designated coach per workout to help those new to triathlons for more hands-on coaching technique.
