​I still have questions about Indoor cycling & RealRyder bikes...

​What is a PureRyde indoor cycling class?

Our PureRyde Cycling combine high energy, motivating instructors and state-of-the-art equipment allowing you to experience the most dynamic indoor cycling classes around. They are the only stationary bikes in the world that allow riders to move in three planes of motion throughout the workout. As a result the workouts are more dynamic, intense and incorporate more muscle groups during use than a traditional indoor cycling bike. Classes are set to unique music mixes compiled to energize and sustain rides for the duration of the class.



Will indoor cycling help me lose weight?

Yes. Indoor cycling will help you shed pounds and lower your body fat if done regularly and in combination with a healthy diet. A rider can burn up to 800 calories in a single class with the average being about 600 calories. It is a low impact fantastic cardio exercise which helps lead to a more energized and healthy life.



​Do I have to be in great shape or an experienced ryder to get started?

No. Indoor cycling is adaptable to all fitness levels with each rider controlling the resistance and speed of the pedals on their respective bike. YOU are in charge of YOUR ryde.  You choose how hard to work on any given ride.  While our dedicated and driven instructors will endeavor to maximize everyone’s efforts, there are no limits or prerequisites.



​Will indoor cycling improve my running and/or outdoor riding?

Avid runners who have added indoor cycling to their cross-training routine, often report that indoor cycling “balances” out their leg muscles, putting emphasis on muscle groups not normally used during running. It is also a great way to avoid over-training and provides a “break” from the constant pounding that can take a toll on the feet and knees.  For outdoor riders, indoor cycling offers an opportunity to train in ways that are not possible out on the road.



​Is indoor cycling safe for people with knee or back problems?

We always recommend that you consult your physician before beginning a new exercise program, however, with proper setup cycling is considered a low-impact exercise, which is often recommended by physical therapists and chiropractors. In our own experience we have found that in most case issues when individuals report that cycling hurts their knees and/or back, those issues are often easily resolved through proper adjustment and set up of the bike.
