Spin Class at the Shop

Spin Classes coming to Cycle Works

Cycle Works will be offering spin classes this fall and winter.  These classes are for cycling enthusiasts of all levels and are being taught by cyclists.  The classes are open to anyone as long as you have a bicycle and are ready for great work out. 

There will be 2 sessions.  Session one begins November 4.  Each session will meet twice a week.  The classes, held in our store at 720 North 27th.  For your convenience you can store your bike at the shop during the sessions. 

What kind of equipment will I be using? – We are using Cyclops Fluid trainers; to us they give the most realistic resistance.  You will also use step blocks to level out the ride or to elevate the front wheel during climbing sessions.

What do I need - A bicycle of course, any type will do, if you choose use a mountain bike, please use a smooth tire for the rear…knobby tires are really noisy!  

Although knowing your cadence is a useful training tool, it is not required.  The same goes for a heart rate monitor, helpful but not required.  These tools can be used as an indicator of performance and fitness. The instructors will be using both of these tools during class. 

We recommend wearing bike shorts and shirts made of a wicking material. You will work up a sweat during these classes so a towel would be useful to dry yourself and your bike. 

We will have the trainers positioned on mats and plenty of fans and water to keep you cool.

Sessions –           (1) November 4 – December 18
(2) January 6 – February 19

Classes held on Tuesday and Thursday

The classes, held in the store at 720 North 27th, will begin at 7pm and last one hour.

What is different about these spin classes? – The most noticeable difference is we will not be using spin bikes; you will be riding your own bike that is mounted on a Cyclops fluid trainer, that we provide. This is a secure, damage free method of mounting a bike.   Our focus is improving your cycling ability; we will cover all aspects of cycling, base, climbing, steady state, and sprints.

What’s this going cost me? – Each session will cost $65

Our class size is limited, so get your spot reserved soon.
To reserve your spot or for more information contact Rick @ 402.475.2453 or email

Seeking Radness

We have some very rad folks on our staff and we pride ourselves on that. But, as life goes, some of those rad folks have moved on to other life's adventures. Which means we have some spots to fill, so, we are seeking more radness. In other words we're hiring! Full and part time hours. If interested, ride by with a resume and your hours/days available. And/or fill out and bring in our questioner from our website. Now's your chance to be part of a rad crew at a community active bike shop.

The Land of Lakes is calling

6 years ago I went on a bike ride to Cycle Works to ask for a part time job never thinking it would be much more than that, but since then it has become a huge part of my life. I have met so many amazing people through this shop, whether the great people that work/have worked here, or the super rad customers who visit regularly. I have learned so much spending my days here, and hopefully I was able to pass that off to you at some point.

Today marks my last week at Cycle Works before I move back to my hometown of Minneapolis, and start a new chapter with a bike company in the Minneapolis area. If it wasn't for Cycle Works and the Lincoln cycling community I would probably never of pursued a career path in something that I love so much. Thanks for all the memories, you will be missed!
