X-Bikes - exceed expectations...

GO Moderate Cardio/Cycling

What does it involve?

X-Bikes has all the fitness and enjoyment of mountain bike riding, without any of the rubbish weather or insects splattered on your face. Using articulating Trixter BikesĀ®, GO Gateshead's resident X-Bike experts help you get a full-body workout - arms, legs, core abdominal muscles and cardiovascular - that fully mimics the experience of outdoor cycling.

Is it for me?

If you enjoy cycling, X-Bikes class is made for you. It takes all of the beneficial health and well-being things about cycling and makes them available in a nice, friendly, air-conditioned room just around the corner from your house. You can ride at your own pace and chat to other X-Bikers while burning 55% more calories than a standard class. What's not to love?

  • drink
  • towel
