Let's Get Specific

Due to space and safety considerations, do NOT bring your wheels with your bikes.  Cycle Loft has a variety of cassettes – so you don’t need to remove the cassettes from your wheels, however, you SHOULD bring your thru axels and/or quick-release skewers. 

Smart Trainers

Cycle Loft uses Wahoo KICKR CORE smart trainers. 


The KICKR CORE delivers a realistic, accurate and quiet indoor training experience.  Although bikes are available to try a ride, riders will have the best experience if they bring their own bikes.  Most bikes are compatible with the Wahoo KICKR CORE.  Exceptions include various single speed, track, recumbent, and some thru axel bikes.

Grade Simulators

When combined with our smart trainers and compatible software, your climbs are remarkably realistic and your descents are appropriately sweet!

Smart Fans

Cycle Loft uses Wahoo KICKR HEADWIND fans.


The HEADWIND fan can be set to bring more realism to your ride by increasing wind speed as you increase your speed. 


Alternatively, for riders with compatible heart rate devices (not provided by Cycle Loft) the HEADWIND can be set to increase wind speed as your heart rate increases, cooling you off as you heat up!


In addition to a smart trainer, grade simulator, and smart fan; Cycle Loft riders are provided with a computer, monitor, and wi-fi. 


Our smart trainers are compatible with over 50 online apps. 


Free software is available to provide basic specifics of your ride, such as speed and watts.  However, to obtain an immersive virtual riding experience, membership, you must use compatible apps. Examples of compatible apps include Zwift, The Sufferfest, Rouvy, Kinomap, VirtuGO, and Road Grand Tours. Riders can try a virtual ride at the Cycle Loft using a trial membership to Zwift. However, memberships to one or more virtual riding software programs are strongly recommended to get the best and most personalized experience for multiple rides, the ability to design your avatar, save your progress, and compare rides over time. Membership rates to virtual riding software programs range from approximately $10.00 - $15.00/month and may be suspendable during the outdoor riding season.
