I have been in teaching Indoor Cycling for over 25 years and the reason why I have been teaching for so long is how this group exercise class has continued to evolve and progress with technology as we strive to give our riders what they want. RESULTS. My love is cycling and my passion is helping people in whatever way I can. In my opinion Indoor group cycling and educating is a brilliant combination of the two. We are not here to change you in any particular way - we are still riding a bike that goes nowhere. We just hope we can give you more tools for your teaching tool-box.
