  • To ensure the safety of participants, class size may be limited

Cycling Sign-Up Policies

To make your experience in cycle classes more enjoyable, please abide by these simple policies:

  • Always sign up. Sign-up sheets are available at the SRC. Participants must sign-up in person no more than one day prior to the class [registration by phone is not permitted]
  • Be on time. Registered class participants must pick up a pass across from the SRC desk, starting 30 minutes prior to the class, and show it to the instructor to gain access to the studio. Instructors will open the studio 10 minutes before the start of class. If you are not present 5 minutes prior to the start of class, you will be considered a “no show,” and your spot will be given to another participant. Unregistered participants must line up outside the studio on a first-come, first-serve basis. The instructor will allow you into the room based on how you are lined up if any spots become available.
  • Bring water and towel to every class.
  • At the conclusion of class: bring the gear down to 1, return the bike seat position to R7 and wipe down the machine, by spraying into the towel first and then wiping the bike.

*The cycle room is located next to the racquetball courts in Fetzer Hall. Cycle class participants can access the cycle room by entering through the SRC, passing down the first floor hallway through the double door entrance to Fetzer, and turning right toward the racquetball courts. The cycle room is the first room on the left hand side of the hallway.
