The safety of our Riders, crew and entire Vélofam is our highest priority. That's why we've taken a lot of measures at all our locations. Please click [here](https://wearevelo.com/post/studio-faq) to see everything we've done and what you can do yourself to keep Vélo a safe environment.
What is the minimum age to join a ride?
Working out is awesome and we encourage everyone to join us. However we do have a minimum age of 15 y/o to join a ride.
Do you offer a monthly membership?
No, Vélo does not offer memberships. It does not require any long-term commitment. Rather, you can buy as many or as few classes as you like. If you want to buy one class, that’s fine as well! But, if you’re riding regularly, our larger series offer a price discount. To check out our prices, click [HERE](https://wearevelo.com/pricing "Pricing page")!
What if I can’t do everything in the class? I haven’t worked out in a while.
One of the best things about indoor cycling is that it can be adapted to any fitness level. With the ability to adjust the resistance level on the bike, the workout can suit each rider's abilities. With every class comes increased confidence and strength, so we encourage first timers to go at their own pace and have fun.
How does Vélo keep your shoes fresh and clean?
We are the only indoor cycle studio that has a super special machine that cleans 99,5% of the germs after every ride. This way we can ensure that you start every ride with fresh, clean shoes!
Is there a class for beginners?
From time to time, we will offer a class called Vélo Fundamentals. But, if we're not offering it when you're looking to ride - don't worry! We have new riders in almost every Vélo class, you will be fine.
How is Vélo different from the cycling classes offered at my gym?
Vélo is a full body indoor cycling workout. We ride to the beat of the music and incorporate upper body exercises into our workout.
Can I ride if I am pregnant?
We have had many pregnant women who are able to ride right up until their due date, but everyone is different so we recommend you check with your doctor before riding at Vélo.
Is there any way to make the seat more comfortable?
As a beginner, the bike and bike seat require a little getting used to. During this phase, it sometimes helps to wear padded bike shorts or use a cushioned gel seat. In a short period of time you won't necessarily need either.
Do you have locker rooms?
At Vélo we have lockers in de pre-workout zone and in the changing rooms. The separate changing rooms are equipped with great showers, fluffy towels and all thing needed to fresh’n up.
Do you have water or do I have to bring my own?
We sell water bottles for €2. We also have filtered water fountains at the studio if you need to fill up your own bottle.
Do I need to create an account in order to join a class?
Yes. It's important for us to know who's riding with us and to have your contact information. Riders can create an account online, in studio, or by calling the studio.
What do I need to wear and do I need to bring my own shoes?
We suggest sporting a tee or tank on top and form-fitting pants or shorts on the bottom. No need to bring special shoes! We offer them free of charge! If you’re a regular you can might consider to buy our special shoes, ask the our team for more information.
