2020 Indoor Cycling Series

Our indoor cycling program gives you access to a professionally-coached “spin” workout that is tailored specifically for triathletes. Our aim is to make you a better cyclist by focusing on strength, stamina, and technique – and along the way you’ll have a lot of fun! For 2020, members will have the opportunity to sign up for cycle classes at The 17th Street Athletic Club (in the Mission) or Pelo (Polk St in Russian Hill). See sign-up information below.

Questions? Contact the Spin Officer.

17th ST ATHLETIC CLUB, 3265 17th St #104, San Francisco, CA (close to 16th St BART)

The first series of 2020 is from January 22 through April 15. Spaces are limited and available only to SF Tri Club members. Click here for more information and to sign up.

17th Street Athletic Club features two studio spaces: an indoor cycling studio and a gym featuring TRX suspension training systems and tons of free weights. They use top-of-the-line Stages indoor cycling bikes. Be sure to download the Vismox app onto your phone before the first class if you want to track your progress. Bikes have both SPD clips and buckets for sneakers. There is only one shower on site. Coach Shannon Boughn is co-owner, founder of 17th Street Athletic Club with Marissa Axel. Shannon has coached hundreds of athletes for races ranging from 5k runs in the Presidio through Ironman Competitions in Brazil, Canada, and New Zealand.

PELO FITNESS, 2325 Polk St, San Francisco, CA (between Union and Green)

Pelo features indoor cycling, full body strength, flexibility, yoga, and nutrition programs. A dedicated cycling studio, Pelo's bikes are equipped with power meters and a state of the art sound system. The facility offers several private showers and bathrooms to class participants.

Spin classes at Pelo are heavily discounted (at $16/class). To join, follow these steps:

  1. Create an account at Pelo.
  2. Send an email to the spin officer, who will register your account with Pelo for the discount. 
  3. Buy classes on the Pelo website using the discount code: SFTRI (apply code at check out).


Q: If I cannot make my regular class may I drop in on a different session?
A: You may not swap studios, but within the same studio you may swap into a different session. At 17th St, you need to cancel your class in advance and sign up for a different class using the MindBody site/app. At Pelo, you need to cancel your class at least 24 hours in advance and sign up for a new on their website. For both studios, you may also consider adding classes by purchasing multiclass pass directly from the studio at their retail rate.

Q: Which studio is better for me?
A: The most important thing is consistency -- which one is more doable for you with your life, commute, schedule? Both studios will offer high quality coaching and equipment and will bend over backwards to answer your training questions. Both offer a great social experience as well.

Q: How can indoor cycling can improve performance?
A: Training indoors gives you more control over intensity of your bike workout and allows you to train consistently despite weather and coffee-stop-loving ride buddies. Read more here.
