JUST CYCLE

Join Brittany for an outdoor spin class like no other, The stationary bikes will be set up under the Nordic tents, overlooking the picturesque vineyard at Avondale Sky Winery. This class is upbeat, but that doesn't mean it's just for "advanced" riders. If you want to try, you are meant to be there, it's as easy as that- just cycle. You can expect intensity, a challenge, and a few laughs. You'll hear house, EDM, trance, a few mixes of your favourites, and electronic. If it has a strong beat, you can guarantee it'll be played.
