Level: This class is suitable for ALL levels – Every athlete is in control of your own speed, power and resistance, so athletes at very different ability levels can benefit from the same workout.

About: Indoor trainer rides are the most efficient way to become a better cyclist, a faster triathlete and master of your athletic goals.  Ride YOUR bike indoors this winter without facing harsh weather conditions or icy roads.  Cycle through varied terrain from Central Park to London, and learn how to train with power, cadence, heart rate, and other valuable training tools.  No prior experience necessary.  Contact us with any questions: info@empiretriclub.com
