Do you offer a monthly membership?
GUCYCLE offers a pay-as-you-go system -- that way you're only purchasing classes that you actually use. If you're riding regularly, our larger series offer a price discount.
How early do I need to arrive before class?

How many calories are burned per class?
It depends on the weight of the individual and the amount of exertion used. Research indicates that on average, indoor cyclists burn from 500-700 calories in a 45-minute workout.
Can I ride if I am pregnant?
We have had many pregnant women who are able to ride right up until their due date, but we recommend you check with your doctor before riding at GUCYCLE.
Is there any way to make the seat more comfortable?
As a beginner, the bike and bike seat require a little getting used to. During this phase it sometimes helps to wear padded bike shorts or use a cushioned gel seat. In a short period of time you won't necessarily need either.
Do cycling shoes really make a difference and if so, what type should I get?
Cycling shoes offer a more secure position in the pedals enabling the cyclist to work much more efficiently. Pedal strokes become more powerful and allow you to target the correct muscle groups. We recommend "Look Delta" cleats for our bike pedals, but SPDs will also work.
I am bringing friends with me and it’s all of our first times - do they all need to create accounts?
You can book more than one bike on one single account, but each rider will have to fill out a New Rider Waiver Form and create an account before they ride. You can do this when you arrive. *please note, riders under 18 must have their parent or guardian sign the waiver in person!
Do you have discounts?
GUCYCLE does not offer discounts, but our packages do become less expensive when you buy in bulk. We also offer temporary discount during marketing events.
How old do you have to be to ride at GUCYCLE?
Riders must be at least 1.5 meter tall and at least 12 years old to ride. *Please note, if you are under 18, your parent or guardian will need to sign a waiver in person.
How do I use my coupons or gift cards?
