What make Revolution Indoor Cycling Studio special?

Revolution Indoor Cycling Studio offers a warm, relaxed, safe team-like environment. Our instructors have been carefully chosen for their quality and their love of the sport.

How do I start?

Check our SCHEDULE for the class most convenient for you. Then sign up online to RESERVE your ride or call the studio. If you are new to indoor cycling, please arrive 15 minutes early so we can show you the "set-up" and the "basics". The resistance knob on each bike allows you to control the pedal speed. Start slowly and as you get more comfortable with technique, the challenge is in changing speed, resistance, and intensity.

How long is a typical class?

The typical class consists of a 60-minute ride with cooling down and stretching. Some classes are 75 minutes and include some light weights in order to work your core and upper body. See our list of classes for full descriptions and class length.
