TOP 5 REASONS TO SPIN FROM YOUR YEG CYCLE FAM
Suitable for all levels. Whether you’re new to spin or need a refresher course on why you’re an avid spinner, let us remind you of this: “It’s more than just a bike bolted onto the ground, it’s bolted for a reason--it’s because of what you bring to our spin room, every single time.” How can you pass up a place where you don’t get in trouble for blasting loud music in a room with your Bikergang family.
THE TEAM SPIRIT
The energy you feel when you ride with your Bikergang family is more powerful than you’d assume it to be. This space encourages you to keep on going in the most subtle of ways. When you reach your moment when you feel the urge to give up, you can look to your left and right and know the person beside you is your biggest supporter. There's something about seeing everyone giving it their all--it challenges you to do the same. Together, we ride in unison to the rhythm of the lights, our legs moving with excitement to the same beat. The same beat you raise your water bottles for.
THE BEAT OF THE MUSIC
There’s nothing that can compare to the feeling of riding to the beat of the music. It's a crazy feeling but you will find yourself becoming one with the tunes. Your feet mirror every beat drop, your body is in sync with your feet and your mind soon joins the rest of the party. Once you’re connected to the music, there’s no coming out of it. This beat gives you the strength to power through races, climbs, intervals, jogs and when you hit the first seconds into your stretch, it's your reminder of what you've just accomplished.
THE MOTIVATOR + BIKERGANG VIBE
Finding the motivator (or mo as we typically call them) that speaks to you, is like love at first sight. Trust us when we say they feel the exact same way about you. You just can’t believe how you’ve ever pumped and dipped without them. *Insert* “where have you been all my life?!” Apart from having the same music taste, you know you’ve found the one when you find yourself inspired by each other. Together, an uplifting machine to the point that bad days don't exist. We've all had that class where you hear the right words and after having a rough day, you know that’s a vibe of its own.
THE INNER POWER
This is the moment you’ve been preparing yourself for. The mo tells you what the next move is. At this moment, the lights dim low, you can feel the fire of the adrenaline rising beneath your feet and with your eyes closed, you pedal to the beat. Just when you think you can’t give any more, you surprise yourself and give it more than you’ve got (hitting that beat drop we might add). Forever stronger than yesterday.
THE BLISSFUL AFTERMATH
Yes, you’re exhausted after riding a forty-five-minute spin class. Yet, you’ve quickly washed over the exhaustion by sharing your Bikergang thoughts with your friends and family about your favourite rides, the tracks you loved dipping to and how the mo made you feel during spin! Like the calm after the storm, you take the time to thank yourself for coming to class. It's not always easy but it's important to remind yourself just how amazing you truly are.
There you have it, the top five reasons to spin from our perspective.
