Welcome to the NEW ICI/Pro

We are an international community* of Indoor Cycling Instructors that count in the thousands along with hundreds of Cycling Studio Owners and Health and Fitness Club Managers focused on what we call Indoor Cycling 2.0™ – the transition from entertainment based exercise (fun, but without purpose and rarely effective) to results driven training (the stuff that works, just ask any real endurance athlete)
