Exercise bikes are designed to closely emulate real cycling without the dangers of traffic or the inconvenience of adverse weather. In recent years, indoor cycling has become one of the most popular exercise trends in the Ireland. Cycling is one of the best ways to combine burning calories, building muscles and increasing cardio resistance. Exercise bikes are low impact exercise machines that you can easily set up in your own home without the cost and hassle of attending an actual gym.


How to Choose the Best Home Exercise Bike


While looking for the best exercise bike for home use, consider these crucial aspects: pricing and features. A larger budget usually translates to a more feature rich exercise bike, but this may not be necessary if you’re just getting started with your fitness adventure. Even if you are on a budget, we can offer exercise bikes with varied levels of resistance to put you through your paces. If you are exceptionally tall or short, ensure that the seat and handlebars can be adjusted to the level you find comfortable. Also, check the maximum user weight, as certain models, especially the less expensive ones, have a lower maximum weight limit.


What To Look For When Buying an Exercise Bike


Some of the most important features to consider when buying an indoor bike are: flywheel weight and resistance settings, adjustable seat and handlebars, type of drive (belt drives tend to be much quieter and lower maintenance compared to their chain counterparts), overall dimensions and mobility, (all of our bikes are designed for home use and have wheels on them in order for them to be moved around). Most of our models also feature a water bottle holder and even the water bottle itself. The newest models usually have phone/tablet holders and Bluetooth connection, too.


How Much Room Does an Exercise Bike Require?


The type of bike you’re using, and whether or not it is foldable, will determine how much space you will need. Because you will be either sitting vertically or standing up on the pedals for the majority of your workout, an upright exercise bike doesn’t take up much floor space. These are normally around 1m long and 0.5m wide. Aim for around 0.5m of empty space on either side of the bike.


How To Set Up an Exercise Bike?


Adjust your saddle height so it is parallel with your hip. Get on the bike and assume the correct riding position. Your knee should be over the ball of your foot with the pedal at 3 o’clock, and your other knee slightly bent with the pedal at 6 o’clock. Don’t worry if you don’t get the settings right during the first try. If you feel something is not quite right, it’s quick and easy to adjust all the parameters.


Useful Hints for Getting the Most out of Your Workout Bike


Once you’ve found your perfect exercise bicycle, follow these simple guidelines to get the most out of your workout.

  • It is critical that you adjust your exercise bike’s seat height and handlebars to ensure that you are comfortable while riding.
  • Try multitasking. If you are cycling slowly and your surroundings allow it, reading a book or watching TV can help pass the time.
  • Select the appropriate level of resistance. Don’t start with a high resistance. It is best to start with a modest level and increase it if it becomes too easy. To avoid muscle tension, always warm up with a lower resistance setting.
  • To burn the most calories, you must adjust the bike’s resistance level as your fitness increases. Your muscles have to work against a certain resistance in order to burn body fat and produce more energy. Building and maintaining muscle strength is crucial when trying to lose body fat. For best effects, try alternating low and high intensity intervals, also known as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Interval training burns more calories than a steady, constant activity and increases the “afterburn effect”, which keeps on burning more energy long after you have finished your workout.
  • Change your workouts . If you do the same cycling program every day, your body will soon adapt, and the effect on your metabolism will reduce with time. The key is to keep your body guessing by rotating between different kinds of training.
  • Eat something substantial before your bike workout: working out on an empty stomach is not a good idea. If you are working out in the morning, eat a small snack, like fruit or muesli, 30 minutes before you start. If you prefer daytime workouts, have a protein rich lunch 1-2 hours before cycling. Don’t eat straight after your workout. If you want to burn more calories, wait for 2-3h after your workout before eating. This will allow you to maximise the “afterburn effect”. If you work out in the evening, it is advisable to only eat a light meal or even just skip it and replace with a heartier breakfast. Remember to drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout. Speaking to a GP or a dietician would be ideal, if possible.
