General 

Q: What is Rocycle?

A: Our full body 45 & 60-minute workouts on a bike are uplifting experiences. Set to candlelight and fueled by epic beats, our classes are made to give youa source of inspiration and happiness. Ride the energy of the pack as you pedal out of the saddle for most of the class, training your core, and raising your heart rate. Our classes run all day long – from sunup to after sundown – 7 days a week

Q:  What are the Ro’rules?

A: We at Rocycle like to keep things positive. We kindly ask you to follow our Ro’rules. 

  1. Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti - Be kind to your neighbor. Treat others like you want to be treated.

  2. Leave Your Phone In The Locker - For receiving emergency calls please leave your phone at our reception.

  3. Less Talking, More Riding - Talking to others disturbs the class.

  4. Stay In Class - Try to stay until the end. Leaving early is a waste of your precious Ro’time. 

Q: I am pregnant, can I still join a Rocycle class?

A: It’s best you contact your personal GP to evaluate your condition. 

Q: I haven’t worked out for a while, is this a problem during class?

A: Everybody can join Rocycle. Whether your level is advanced or absolute beginner. The classes are high intensity so we encourage you to take your own pace and to listen to your body during the ride. The instructor will be there to help, guide and push you during the ride to take the most out of your ride you can possibly get. 

Q: How old do you have to be to be able to go to Rocycle?

A: We encourage working out at a young age, but we have a minimum age of 15 years old to join our rides. 

Booking

Q: How do I sign up for a Rocycle ride?

A: We recommend you to book your classes online. This way you are guaranteed a spot. Simply register online and make sure you buy credits to book your class. There is always an option to drop into our studio and register with the studio team. You can join a ride straightaway, depending on availability.

A: We release our schedules every day at noon, for the following two weeks. 

Q: What will happen with my credit if I do not come to the ride?

A: When you do not come to the ride, your credit will be lost. And this ride will be labeled as ‘no show’ in your account. 

Q: The class is full, is there a waitlist?

A: Yes we have a waitlist when a class is full. You need to have at least one credit in your account to join the waitlist. You’ll receive an email automatically as soon as we have gotten a spot for you. If you can’t make it to your class after all, make sure you remove your spot from the waitlist. Otherwise your credit will be lost. 

Q: When do I hear if a spot is free? 

A: You will hear via email as soon as a slot has become available.

The waitlist spots are given away on a first come first serve basis. 

>>>>> Waitlist > (over) 12h before class

- If you cancel 12 hours or more before the class starts, the class will automatically open for other riders to register. If there is a waitlist, the first rider automatically gets registered. 

>>>> Waitlist < (under) 12h before class

- If a spot opens up in the class and there is a waitlist, the system will automatically send an email to everyone on the waitlist and notify them of an open spot. This email acts as a ‘first come first serve’ opportunity. Whichever rider selects 'Book now' in the email first, will automatically be enrolled into the class and removed from the waitlist. Note that there are five spots available on the waitlist. 

Q: Is it possible to reschedule a ride?

A: Yes. You need to cancel the class you have currently booked and book a new class. If you decide to cancel a ride, bear in mind that you can cancel anytime up to 12 hours prior to the class. Otherwise you lose your credit.
