Exercise bikes come in two categories: stationary bikes for indoor use and outdoor bikes for various terrains. Stationary bikes are adjustable and customizable, commonly used in spin classes. Outdoor bikes include road bikes for speed and mountain bikes for off-road terrain. Hybrid bikes are a comfortable option for steady riding on pavement or dirt roads.

Exercise bikes generally fit into two main categories: stationary bikes, which are fixed in one point and are generally used indoors, and outdoor exercise bikes, which can be ridden outside on a variety of terrains. By default, any bike is an exercise bike, since pedaling is an aerobic activity that promotes fitness, and there are many varieties of bikes to choose from. However, the most common bike used for exercise is probably the stationary bike.

Stationary bikes are common in gyms and gyms. They are adjustable to accommodate people of different heights, weights, sizes and shapes, and allow the user to adjust the level of resistance against which they must pedal. Stationary bikes can also be customized to some degree: the pedals and saddles can be easily changed, allowing for a more comfortable ride. Stationary fitness bikes are commonly used in spin classes, group classes led by an instructor who guides riders through a riding session according to their level of proficiency. Such classes are a good way to develop proper cycling technique, as well as burn calories and build muscle.

Outdoor fitness bikes fall into several different categories. The bike most commonly associated with fitness is the road bike, which is a lightweight bike with thin, aerodynamic wheels and tires, and an aggressive riding position. These types of bikes are designed for speed and are used exclusively on roads. A road bike is a good option for someone looking for a strenuous aerobic workout.

Mountain bikes are all-terrain bikes intended for dirt roads and trails. They are generally easier to pedal than road bikes since the gear is lower, but because mountain bikes go off-road and are designed to ride over obstacles, riding a mountain bike requires skill, dexterity, and a certain amount of fitness. Mountain bikes are a good option for more adventurous riders looking to build muscle.

Several varieties of fitness bikes fall between the two mentioned outdoor categories. A hybrid bicycle, for example, is a bicycle designed for the rider who won’t necessarily ride fast and who doesn’t necessarily want to ride rough trails, but prefers riding at a steady pace on pavement or dirt roads. They are designed to be more comfortable than a road bike and mountain bike, and are generally easier to pedal. However, they are usually heavier and won’t go as fast as any of the performance options mentioned above.
