With a wide variety of Echelon Connect Bike classes, your workouts will never be boring. This guide takes a closer look at our cycling classes to help you decide which class is best suited to your mood and energy level.
Our warm up rides are specially designed to get your body ready to ride.
To ensure you slow your heart rate and recover after your Connect Bike session, we have a range of short cool down rides.
If you are new to Echelon and are wanting to learn the basics and sample all the types of rides we offer, our Beginner Rides are a perfect option for you. Not only will you get to know the Echelon instructors, but you will also be able to find the Connect Bike classes that inspire and challenge you.
Our Low Impact Rides are designed to focus on form, technique, and execution, providing you with the opportunity to build a solid foundation. By combining milder terrains and moderate-intensity drills, these low impact Echelon workouts help to build a baseline fitness level and encourage active recovery.
Another kind of Connect bike class that helps riders establish a solid foundation and build baseline fitness levels are our Endurance Rides. These classes incorporate the variables of time and tempo across milder terrains.
As the name suggests, the Echelon Power Rides are our most powerful workout, and are the perfect option to maintain strength and performance. These Power workouts combine high resistance and leg speed using an interval training style, whereby speed, load, and time are switched up throughout the class to increase strength and stamina and spike post-workout metabolic activity.
One of our most unique Connect Bike classes is the Zumba® Party Ride, an Echelon-exclusive bike class where our connected cycling meets the popular, high-energy Zumba® music and choreography. This workout is always a favourite within the Echelon United Community.
Cadence Rides provide interval training for the music-driven athlete, veering cyclists away from “rules of the road riding”. The Cadence Rides classes combine rhythm riding with full body strengthening, working all muscle groups including your glutes, quads, core, and upper body.
The Echelon speed rides are the perfect way for you to push your boundaries, improving anaerobic threshold and overall aerobic capacity. Pedal through perceived limits and exceed your previous record, as you generate and sustain speed on flat roads and mild climbs at higher cadences.
Our All-Out Rides have been developed to help you practice and develop skills that will directly result in a greater output on the leader board. You can revisit these classes at any point to see how you improve over time. It is recommended you take a Warm Up Rides class before joining, as these classes really are all out.
The Bike Bootcamp classes combine cycling and floor work, with sessions beginning with a Connect Bike ride and finishing with floor exercises. We recommend using regular trainers and utilising the toe cages on your pedals, to be able to quickly transition from the bike to the floor in these workouts.
For a Connect Bike class that will challenge your physical and mental agility, our Fusion Rides are the best option. These Echelon classes are a medley workout of our favourite strength, power and speed drills.
If high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is your favourite style of training, then our Tabata Rides are the best Echelon cycling classes for you. The Tabata Rides are a form of high- HIIT that involve short bursts of intense anaerobic exercise, followed by brief recoveries, promoting aerobic and anaerobic conditioning. Effort and rest in these workouts are at a 2:1 ratio, respectively.
Our Hill Rides are considered as one of our more challenging ride classes we offer at Echelon. The main aim of these workouts is to build strength and cardiovascular endurance whilst working major muscle groups, by combining steep climbs, moderate grade climbs, and rolling hills with bursts of speed.
Scenic Rides are self-guided workout sessions, where your screen will transform into a video of biking in a specific location, instead of an instructor leading the class. Be in control of your own workout.
Whether you are just getting started with your Echelon bike or you are trying to beat your personal best, we will have the perfect Connect Bike classes to help you achieve what you need. Be sure to check out the Cycling section of the Echelon Fit app and try a class that you’ve never done, as it could become your new favourite workout!
