Elkridge Weekday Summer Outdoor Bike Classes - Spin 90

 

The Spin 90 Outdoor Training Program is a realistic, on the road, experience.  We ride different courses evaluating each rider.  
Our small classes allow us to teach each rider about taking hills,  shifting correctly, and becoming a stronger more confident cyclist based on personal skill levels. For more advanced riders, we focus on a higher level of training using intervals and other techniques to develop a competitive athlete for a winning time.

Whether you are training for your first event or trying to push your training to a new level, we have instructors and programs to suit all skill levels during each class.

This course is ideal for focused training in a group setting.  With good climbs, rolling hills, flats, and very low traffic - we can really focus on the workout and drills.
