Setting Up To Ride

Setting Up To Ride

If you’re a first time rider, here are some guidelines to help you set up:

Your Bike

  • Adjust the height of your seat to where your hip bone is located
  • Use the distance between your elbow and your middle finger as a guide to how far forward your seat should be from your handlebars
  • Adjust the handlebar height to the same level as your seat. Beginner’s and/or those with lower back issues should keep their handlebars higher
  • Use the blue knob behind the handlebar to adjust your resistance level. Right is heavier, left is lighter resistance

Your Shoes

  • Push the cleat on the ball of your shoe into the pedal until it locks in (you’ll hear it click!)
  • Clip out by pushing your heel away from the bike

Arrival Time

Arrival Time

Classes start on time. We suggest arriving 15-20 minutes before your class starts to get changed, put your belongings in a locker and set up your bike. Please check in to your class with our receptionist at least 5 minutes before class time. If not, we will give your seat away to walk-ins or the next person on the waitlist. Please note our cancellation policy.

General Etiquette

Aloha Etiquette

This section is all about consideration for others. Here are some general dos and dont’s:


Do:

  • Show up on time. Aloha classes start on the dot
  • Wipe down your bike after each class. it gets sweaty in the studio so please think about your fellow next rider.
  • Control your body odour. a little awkward to mention…but we do have a small studio so it’s important that we get that b.o. under control

Don’t:

  • Bring your mobile phone into class
  • Leave your trash lying around for someone else to clean up
  • Chit chat during class. Don’t worry, our studio is connected to Rubberduck, a great place for you to catch up with friends after class.
