Inspired by Rio? Try Cycling at These Studios

Like fencing, cycling has been an event at every modern Games since 1896. With road racing, mountain biking and BMX racing all featured in Rio, there are numerous ways to get inspired and set up your own cycling training.


At SoloCicla riders are encouraged to release their stress on the bike. To help with that, SoloCicla instructors take you through classes with unique rhythms and lighting to keep you dancing on your bike or meditating while blissfully spinning in darkness.
