Default Indoor fitness cycling

Tired of dodging cars on the road but still want your daily ride fix?
Just buy one of these $2,000 exercise machines, plug it into the

online classes.

Not for you? Well, the company claims 500,000 users so there must be
something to get their attention (and money).
