Here are 4 indoor cycling classes to try in Abu Dhabi.
Spinning doesn’t come in one shape or size at The Room. Here, you can take your pick of a range of cycling classes, including the inspiring Belief, party-style Candy, pumping Club Night, an introspection-inducing Journey, and interval-based Performance classes.

Available at Inspire Gym, the ladies-only sessions offer a visual feast, as virtual reality snippets of steep glaciers, space-age cities and speeding cyclists are projected onto giant screens.
