ITS MY FIRST CLASS, WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE?
We recommend everyone gets to the studio at least 10 minutes before class. If it is your first time riding, get there 15 minutes early so we can show you around, fit you with shoes & get your bike set up correctly.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR/ BRING?
Wear clothing that is comfortable to exercise and sweat in. Please also bring or wear socks and a water bottle. We provide complimentary towels for class and drink bottles/socks are available for sale if you left yours at home. Just a heads up, the drink bottle holders on the bike only take the standard size bottles.
DO I NEED TO WEAR THE CYCLING SHOES?
As part of the experience, cycling shoes are complimentary for all participants and we recommend you wear them. If you do not feel comfortable then it is ok to wear your sneakers but must be strapped into the pedals.
All bikes have adjustable toe cages and straps and are compatible with Shimano® SPD® cleats- cycling shoes. Feel free to bring your own or use ours!
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF WEARING CYCLING SHOES?
Wearing cycling shoes means you are clipped into our pedals and generating force on both the push and pull of each pedal stroke. The motion also promotes the body to recruit your larger muscle groups (quads/glutes), increasing the ability to burn more calories throughout class. The rigidity of the sole also prevents any possible soft tissue injury of the foot that may be obtained from the use of softer sneakers. Ultimately you will be riding more comfortably and efficiently!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EACH CLASS?
You can find out here about all our classes
DO I NEED TO BE FIT TO DO THE CLASS?
The great thing about Infinite Cycle is, you have the control of how hard, or how easy you want to go. The instructor will guide you and encourage the class to follow the pace and the intensity. It is then up to you to decide and take accountability of the amount of resistance and how hard you want to work.
HOW IS THE CLASS TRACKED?
All our bikes have power metres attached to the crank. This enables us to track your RMP (speed) Watts (power) and distance travelled in the class. You also can put your height, weight & age into your profile so we can track; your watts per kilo, calorie burn and speed in kmph.
WHERE CAN I SEE MY STATS?
Your stats come up in real time on the screens at the front of the studio, you then get a summary after the class, and a full breakdown of your minute-by-minute progress sent through to your app within half an hour of the class.
WHAT IS SPIVI?
Spivi is our programming system which also is how we track your stats. It comes up in real time on our large screens at the front of the room.
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT MY NAME ON THE SCREEN?
We can’t take you completely off the screen, but we are able to give you anonymity changing your name. Just ask at the front desk the next time you are in, and we can sort it! The other option is to go on to the app, log in to spivi and change your display name to something you are comfortable with.
DO I NEED A HEART RATE MONITOR?
We recommend using a heart rate monitor during the session as it is a metric used during our interactive classes, however, you certainly do not have to use one. If you have your own monitor, please ensure it supports ANT+ connection so that we can connect it to our system prior to class. If you would prefer to use one of our monitors – these are available for sale at your studio.
IS THERE A BEGINNER’S CLASS?
We recommend you try either ICPeloton or ICRhythm first. Each of these classes are quite different and may suit different tastes and preferences. Find out here about the different styles.
Each class and instructor will always offer options for beginner riders just starting out. Ultimately, you decide what option to choose and what resistance to select.
DO I NEED TO MAKE A BOOKING FOR EACH CLASS?
We recommend booking your class in advance through the app. We do take walk in’s, but please ensure you arrive early enough to book in and get set up. We cannot confirm availability of spots in the class for walk ins, so your safest option is to book in on the app.
CAN I STILL ATTEND THE CLASS IF I ARRIVE LATE?
To ensure duty of care, safety and to minimise class disturbance, entry will not be permitted once the doors have closed (5 minutes before the start time) or to the instructor’s discretion.
HOW DO I CANCEL A BOOKED CLASS?
Bookings may be cancelled online, or by calling us at least 12 hours in advance. If a cancelation in made within 12 hours without notification, a credit is deducted from your account and at studios discretion, there could be a late cancel fee within the 12-hour window.
WHAT IF I NEED TO LEAVE EARLY FOR THE CLASS?
