To know

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the class start time - this will allow our experienced Motivators to make sure you feel comfortable and answer any questions you may have. Come dressed in comfortable workout attire and we will take care of the rest!

You may cancel reservations up to 4 hours prior to the scheduled start time of your enrolled class. For early morning classes held at 6 am and 8 am, the cancellation window is increased to 8 hours prior to class time. Reservations cancelled after this period will not be subject to a refund and will be charged as if you attended the class.

Additionally, if a class is full, you will be added to a waitlist. If a student has not checked in at least 5 minutes prior to the scheduled class, their spot will be given away to the next student on the waitlist. Students who arrive after class has begun will not be allowed entry to the class.

 

If you want to prepare yourself a little more for your first class, please take a look at our instructional videos below.

Bike Setup

We want to make sure that your experience within our studios is the absolute best and this includes feeling fully comfortable and ready on your bike. Our team is knowledgeable and helpful to ensure that you’re set up properly when you first arrive at our studios, but here are a few important tips to get you started!

Handlebar Height

Your handlebars should be slightly higher than your seat height, and close enough that you maintain a 45-degree angle between your arms and body while holding on to your handlebars. If you are sitting too upright, reposition your handlebars further out. If you feel you are reaching too far forward, adjust your handlebars closer to you.

Seat Height

Seat position and height are really important for an effective and safe ride. Adjust your seat height to your hip height, while standing next to the bike. Make sure you have your shoes on too. This will ensure that you have a little bend in your knee (not too much, and also not too little) while pedaling. If you have too much of a bend in your knees while pedaling, you need to raise your seat up. If your legs are hyperextending while riding, lower your seat slightly.

Seat Position

While seated on the bike, bring your feet to 9:00 and 3:00 on the pedals, you should be able to hang a yo-yo from your knee and have it land in the middle of your foot (falling on the opposite side of your shoe clips). If your knees are too far forward, over your toes, adjust your seat back. If your knee, at position 9:00 and 3:00 on the rotation, falls too far behind the center of your foot, adjust the seat forward.

  • At YYC Cycle Spin Studio, one of the most important aspects of our business is giving back to the community. That’s why each Friday we hold a “GIVE’R” class! Not only are these classes held at a discounted drop in rate of $10, but 100% of the proceeds will go to our current charity of choice! While you sweat it out, you’re also helping to make the world a better place. Feels good doesn’t it?
