Spinning is addictive and you’ll usually spot a couple of regular attendees who have clearly been punching the pedals indoors at least once a week for months.
However, there’s no need to feel like a kid on the first day of secondary school – just a few simple know-how tips will ensure you’re the teacher’s pet in no time…
You should arrive ten minutes early
The bike you’re going to spend the next 40-60 minutes on is crucial to your enjoyment, so get there early and make sure you have time to set the saddle and handlebars up to suit you.
If you’re feeling super geeky, you could measure your own bike and set the spin bike up to match. If you’re not ready to get your measuring tape out, sit on the saddle, and place the ball of your foot on the pedal – your leg should be straight, without your hips rocking. When you clip in or attach the cages, you’ll have a slight bend. Alternatively, jump off the bike, and set the saddle height to match your hip bone.
