Rhythm Cycling is a full-body workout and like any new fitness routine, you may have to check with your doctor before you start if you have any medical conditions. Also, if you’re new to Absolute Cycle please let us know – we are happy to answer any questions.

Here some recommendations before your first ride. Tighten all the handles on the bike and make sure your shoes are clipped in. Our instructors are inspirational leaders who will motivate you to push yourself, but please listen to your body and work at a pace that is comfortable for you

If you experience any unusual or persistent symptoms after your ride, please don’t hesitate to seek medical attention.

Cycling shoes are provided at the studio. If you have your personal cycling shoes, we use Shimano SPD -SL cleats. Our shoes go through a thorough cleaning process after each use, so rest assured that they are hygienic and clean.

TOWELS

A workout towel will be waiting for you on your bike. Also, bath towels are provided in the changing room.
