Friday - - TRIED & TESTED -

MAIREAD It’s a spin­ning class but in a land far, far away – like be­ing at the IMAX while rid­ing your bike. The room is dark, the mu­sic loud and the panoramic screen at the front of the room en­gulfs you in the jour­ney. I was hop­ing for a city tour of Madrid or Tokyo, but the dig­i­tally-cre­ated land­scape takes you through tun­nels and over bridges on a road that reaches up to the sky. The vi­su­als of the hills and straight­aways def­i­nitely in­spire you, but I found that with­out the in­struc­tor mo­ti­vat­ing you fur­ther, there was less ac­count­abil­ity.
