We use the highest-end Spinner® Bikes and boast an incredible sound system with LEDs & cinema-scale screen used for our immersive class THE TRIP.


An exciting cycle experience that’s perfect for both beginners and experienced spinners. You’ll be immersed in a 40-minute journey through stunning landscapes, projected on our cinema-scale screen and with colour-changing LEDs.
