Safety first! Your safety is our top priority. You won't find us doing questionable things on a bike that can put your body at risk. Our program educates and promotes guidelines to instructors and facilities to ensure your safety. Here are some tips for you to stay safe during your ride and so you can focus on feeling great during and after your ride:
- During bike setup, make sure that the handlebars, seat post and seat slider are securely attached and that all pop pins are completely engaged.
- Place the ball of your foot over the center of the pedal. Look to check that your shoelaces are tucked in and your feet are securely attached to the pedals.
- Note that because Spinner bikes have a fixed gear, you must gradually reduce the speed of your pedal strokes to stop the pedals from moving. To decrease the speed of your pedaling, press down on the red resistance knob to stop the pedals.
- Always keep hydrated before, during and after Spinning class. If you begin to feel faint or dizzy, slowly stop pedaling, carefully dismount from the bike and inform your instructor immediately.
