The first "Candy Ride" took place on 20 March and was a great hit for all Spinning® lovers. It was a full house at THE ROOM Abu Dhabi as riders wore neon and enjoyed the "New York Clubbin" theme. Once settled onto the bikes, glow sticks were handed out, lights were turned off and the atmosphere continued its cool vibe. Peter Pastijn, Master Instructor in Spinning® had prepared a great mix of New York dance tunes, and video clips were displayed on the screens tailored to change lighting from red to pink and blue. This 75 minute ride was Spinning® at its best, and it felt a bit like dancing all night to good beats in a trendy club!

The riders had nothing but good things to say about the ride.

That was the best 65 AED I have spent for a long time! What an awesome effort you put into the night, and also the atmosphere during the class was amazing! I have only one question, when is the next one? I want them weekly. Thank you for your time, effort, music, film clips and lighting effects, and for creating the opportunity to ride in such a fun way. I wanted it to be another 30 minutes! – Rose

As a general rule I don't much like cardio, but this Spinning® class was almost too fun to be considered exercise! Remind me why this class event isn't every week? It was awesome! – Meg

Amazing spinning session! Such great energy, unbelievable atmosphere… I can't wait for the next one! – Caoimhe

This was only the beginning, and many more Candy Rides are still to come.
