Prep For Your First Ride

We are thrilled that you plan to join us for your first ride. Below are a few pointers to make your first Ethos visit a fun and productive one.


When to expect when you arrive

Arrive at least 10mins early so that the instructor can fit you comfortably on the bike. You will be custom fit for the height of the seat and handle bars, the for/aft (forward back position) of both the saddle and the handle bars, and you will get a brief overview of the console that gives your some measurement feedback if you want to use it.

After class if you have time for a Performance Fit our staff will do a more exact measurement on your bike set up.

The Gear Up classes are designed for someone never having been on a bike, but they do last 45 minutes and you get at least 3-4 recoveries between the sets.

If you ride outside or on another indoor cycle we can host your SPD or Look cleats if you have them.


What to wear

Wear light and comfortable exercise clothing. Shorts are better than long pants (we have gel sets to make your saddle time a breeze). Dry fit material is cooler than cotton and short sleeves are cooler than long ones.

Wear closed toed, stiff soled shoes for a comfortable ride. Vibrams, canvas street shoes or very flexible running sole shoes are not recommended.


Stay hydrated

Bring your water bottle. We have ultra-oxygenated water and in case you forget to bring a water bottle, you can get your very own Specialized branded Ethos water bottle for only $7!
