Expresso Interactive Bikes (Located in Precor Fitness Room)

Whether you are a seasoned cyclist who likes to clip in or a brand new rider, you will love these new Expresso bikes. The upright bike is the gold-standard in interactive bike riding, and the recumbent bike offers the same amazing interactive rider experience of the upright but in a design built for comfort. Select from over 40 virtual tours, ranging in difficulty from ease to extreme. Tours span from one to twenty miles and include a variety of terrain from ancient Mayan ruins to outer space! Interactive riders have more fun, involve their friends, workout harder and achieve better results!

Features -- Bike resistance automatically adjusts to the terrain on screen for a realistic feel unlike any other exercise bike. The heads up display shows your speed, RPM, grade, gear and position compared to other riders. Biometric feedback including your power output, heart rate, and calories burned are displayed live as you ride so you know exactly how hard to push.

Pacer -- Your pacer rides the tours with you and keeps you working hard. Adjust his speed to fit your level and follow him to the finish or beat him out at the end.

Group Rides -- Invite your friends to join you for a virtual ride! If you have two or more bikes on the same network, you can select the same tour and ride together. Let the race begin!

Leaderboards -- Go ahead, nurture that competitive spirit. Sign into the bike and complete your profile to join the leaderboards. Leaderboards are broken down by gender and age so you can see where you stack up against people like you at your facility or worldwide.

Ghosts -- Keep improving with ghosts! Sign into the bike to record your rides. The next time you select the same route you will be set up to challenge your previous best. You can even send rides to friends when you can't ride together.
