The Terry Team Shares Spinning Tips & Recommendations for the Best Indoor Cycling Clothes
That’s where indoor cycling comes in – perfect for staying in shape during the off-season, enjoying the physical and mental benefits of cycling without having to deal with winter roads and freezing temps.
Some of the Terry team actually include indoor cycling in their workout routines year round, others just for the winter months. Naturally, we all have plenty of Terry pieces among our favorite indoor cycling clothes.
If you are looking to add spinning or indoor cycling to your own workout program, here are some great tips and recommendations to help you get started.
Serena W, Sales – Favorite Indoor Cycling Clothes: Chill 7 Shorts
I go to the spin classes at Synergy Fitness, in Williston, VT. I love the workouts, but the great thing about spin is it’s your ride – you can exert the amount of effort you want!
- I recommend you buy Spinning shoes that clip in to the pedals.
- Try a few different classes and instructors…every class/instructor is different and you may like one instructors style/music better than another’s!
- Drink LOTS of water!
My best recommendations for indoor cycling clothes are the Terry Chill 7 Short and Tourista Tank. I like the light weight fabric of the tank (I sweat a lot) and I don’t like having sleeves on during spin classes.
- The Chill shorts provide nice compression with one of our best chamois that make riding comfortable!
- If you want a minimalist chamois the Club short is great with a pocket for your locker key or cash for a smoothie after class.
- Some ladies like to wear capri length bottoms. If that’s you, check out our Terry Spinnaker, with a minimal chamois, or wait for the NEW Studio Capri for 2019 with mesh leg panels for breathability.
Dave H., Sales – Recommended Indoor Cycling Clothes: Soleil Sleeveless
I spin at Synergy Health and Fitness in Williston, VT, as a way to stay strong and fit on my bike throughout the winter months.
Synergy is my health club of choice for a few reasons:
- Excellent Instructors including Tom, Sarah, Annie and Chip.
- A variety of Terry Saddles (both men’s and women’s) are available on the spin bikes for comfort and support.
- Tremendous atmosphere and music.
Some of the female spin instructors wear Terry cycling apparel, and I would recommend these pieces too:
Alysia C., Graphic Designer – Favorite Indoor Cycling Clothes: Holster Capri
I spin at Marketplace Fitness, in Burlington, VT. It’s not a hardcore spinning studio, but it’s a good price with good teachers. I like to spin in knickers and have a rotation going with the Terry Holster, Breakaway and Actif. But I am really looking forward to the new Studio Capri!
- The great thing about spinning is that you can make it as hard or easy as you want, which makes it perfect for all fitness levels, and keeps it interesting year after year.
- It also doesn’t require fancy gear but having a chamois is one upgrade I highly recommend. I never wore one until working at Terry and now I won’t go back.
- If you fall in love with spinning having a pair of clipless shoes is also a nice upgrade.
Melissa S, Accounting – Favorite Indoor Cycling Clothes: Tech Tees
I have very little cartilage remaining in my left knee. In order to keep the muscles around my knee strong, my doctor recommended a variety of exercises including cycling. So I have been putting a trainer on my Terry Symmetry bicycle for these Vermont winters. (I bought a CycleOps brand and love it.)
I try to get in 30 minutes a day of moderate intensity spinning while watching the evening news (OK – sometimes watching HGTV). If the house is cold, I usually wear my Terry Coolweather tights and a long-sleeve Tech Tee. If not, it’s usually my Terry Bella shorts and a short-sleeve Tech Tee.
I like these items for the same reason I like wearing them when riding outside – the material feels great, very comfortable, and the Tech Tee does a good job of keeping my skin dry.

Alexis H., Product Design – Favorite Indoor Cycling Clothes: Soleil Sleeveless
I spin at least 1 time a week at Rev, a spin club in South Burlington, VT. I like the music and that you burn a ton of calories, three times as many as you would riding a bike – LOL!
