    "Precision Cycling Room" at Lied

    I was kinda bored and was checking out the floor plan and I noticed this room past the racquetball courts... what the heck is it? Is it usually full? What kind of bikes are there? etc.

    Thanks.

    It's an olympic trial sport similar to synchronized swimming, but on bikes instead of in the water.

    So you have to have a group of people doing it? You can't just show up and bike on them?

    When I worked at Lied (graduated spring 2009), they used that room for group fitness classes. I don't think you can use the cycles otherwise, but I may be wrong.

    I'm pretty sure DoOrDie is right. I've never seen anyone just walk in and start riding a bike. It's definitely set up for a class. It's probably locked so regular people can't get in.
