New spin bikes arrive at Halesowen leisure centre

Visitors to Halesowen leisure centre will be in a spin when the popular spin bikes are replaced next month.

The spin bikes are used in the centre’s popular spinning sessions, where a fitness trainer puts groups of users through their paces in a motivational and challenging group cycling session on static bikes.

The original bikes were installed seven years ago with grant assistance from Public Health and West Midlands Police. The popularity of the spin sessions has meant that the bikes have been subject to heavy use and are now near the end of their useful life.

The centre is investing £5,000 in the 11 new bikes (10 for class members, one for the instructor) which will be installed in the coming weeks and ready for use by members and non-member alike from next month. Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member responsible for leisure centres said:

“The centre’s spin classes are always hugely popular and the bikes have served the centre’s users well.

“We have decided to invest in new bikes which will improve the spin classes for all users. I hope we’ll see more people taking advantage of the centre’s facilities.”
