ElliptiGO Group Rides @ =PR= Fairfax
Apr 11 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am
ElliptiGO Group Rides @ =PR= Fairfax | Fairfax | Virginia | United States

Now’s your chance to test out the much anticipated ElliptiGO! The ElliptiGO is the world’s first elliptical bicycle. Designed by runners as the ideal cross-training device, the ElliptiGO combines the best of running, cycling and the elliptical trainer to deliver a low-impact, high-performance workout outdoors. It is an ideal cross-training device for healthy runners and a fantastic replacement for running for injured runners.  Compared to a traditional bike, you’re averaging 30% more of a workout at the same speeds, giving you a greater workout efficiency, better core engagement, and higher average heart rate. All while keeping you in a more comfortable standing/running posture that doesn’t put strain on the lower back or neck.

It’s very easy to ride and most say that it’s more stable than a bike with its longer wheel base and low center of gravity. And it easily adjusts to anyone from 5’0”-6’8” with the adjustable steering column and 4 different stride lengths. It’s the closest thing to running without the impact, and it makes your workout a lot more fun!

We are offering a fantastic opportunity to try one out, for FREE!  Join us for a FREE ride and get a good workout in at the same time!

Here’s how to sign up!

Rides will start every 90 minutes beginning at 8:30 AM and the last ride starting at 4:00 PM.

Please RSVP to this event listing, BELOW,  if you would like the 8:30-10:00 AM time slot. Otherwise, please click on the below links to sign up for the ride time of your preference.  Please note that there are only 6 slots available for each ride! 

NOTE: Each rider must RSVP individually; please do not RSVP for more than one person per entry.  Thank you! 

Each ride will be led by ElliptiGO representative Jeff Caron, who will take the group on a 3-6 mile tour of the surrounding Ashburn area, offering riding tips and training recommendations on the ride to help riders maximize the benefit of this innovative training tool.

We can’t wait for you to join us and experience the thrill of riding an ElliptiGO!
