Mountain Trail Freeride Road Tri BMX Comfort Bikes – Freewheel Cycle Ontario – Everything for the cycling enthusiast!
Sadly we’ve had to reschedule the maintenance clinic. With so few signed up originally, the class got postponed. Saying this, a lot of you guys called asking about it after! Sorry everyone.
On a good note, we’ve rescheduled it for exactly 2 weeks from today. If anyone is interested, please give us a call and we can throw your name on the list, it helps to plan for the clinic.
NEW CLINIC DATE: August 26th, 6-9pm, Freewheel Cycle, 9 King St W Dundas, ON
Happy Trails and Hope to see you all soon!

Great news, everyone!
Freewheel’s popular Winter Spinning program is now offering TWO-HOUR classes on Sunday mornings from 9:00-11:00!
Although these rides aren’t *quite* as intense as the regular week night one-hour rides, they take you into a different endurance zone that a one-hour class can’t. Consider a one-hour indoor ride to be equivalent to a two-hour outdoor ride in terms of your energy expenditure. A two-hour indoor ride? Now we’re talking the equivalent of a three- or four-hour outdoor ride.
Words of wisdom: You will sweat A LOT during a two-hour indoor ride as your body attempts to cool off (and yes, we have a bunch of fans for air movement). We recommend bringing two bottles of water and a bit of food. Better yet, since your sweat contains lots of electrolytes that your muscles need for proper function, seriously consider adding a supplement to your water bottles to replace those vital nutrients. Freewheel stays well-stocked with goodies from Hammer Nutrition, Louis Garneau, and Clif.
Hammer offers HEED (High Endurance Electrolyte Drink) and Perpetuem (HEED plus extra proteins for muscle recovery) as well as energy-boosting gels.
Louis Garneau makes some of the best tasting energy gels in the business as well as their Extra Electrolyte Sports Drink.
Clif makes a handy product called Shot Bloks. These are chewy little treats packed with easy to digest sugars. Our favourite for electrolyte replacement is the Margarita flavour since it packs in three times the salt content of the other flavours.
In terms of cost, Sunday rides count as 1.5 regular rides. If you’re just getting into Spinning at Freewheel, we recommend doing a few of our one-hour classes before jumping into the two-hour rides but if you’re fit and/or experienced, don’t hold back!
Sign up by phone or in person.
Hope to see you here!
