DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that cycling has been used for healthy living since the 18th century? Before the invention of the spin bike (stationary bike as now called), there was the Gymnasticon. It is an exercise machine invented by Francis Lowndes during the 18th century. It was for orthopedic treatment, as it exercises the joints. In the 19th century, indoor cycling became popular because it was more convenient than cycling outdoors. Charles Minthorn Murphy, known as Mile-a-Minute Murphy, was famous for having cycled a distance of one mile in 37 seconds while riding a bike on static rollers. As for outdoor cycling, it took him 57.8 seconds to ride a mile in the slipstream of a train. The vacuum left behind by the train offered less air resistance that normal, so he was able to achieve the feat.

Nowadays, indoor cycling has turned into an organized activity. These are often executed as informal classes accompanied by music and. It focuses on different cycling exercises for the overall improvement of a person’s endurance and strength. As with everything in the 21st century, there are now cycle workout apps developed specifically for indoor cycling. These spinning workout apps have personalized workout routines to develop strengths and improve weaknesses. It also contains playlists for cycling, and goal-setting for motivation.
