Meteorologist Steve Glazier considers himself an avid cyclist, but with ice on the road, temperatures hovering near zero degrees, and less than twelve hours of daylight, he hardly gets on his two-wheeler at all in the winter!

Even so, you would think Steve would have the stamina and leg endurance to ace a spinning class.  That wasn't the case on a cold, mid-February day. Steve and co anchor Brittney Hibbs hopped on the 'one-wheeler' spinning bike in a pleasant and warm 70-degree studio. After one upbeat song Steve was already huffing, puffing, even breaking a sweat because of how tough the class can be! Although don't get discouraged, you can make it as easy or hard as you would like.

Brittney and Steve were at Cyclepath in downtown Burlington, Vermont. This new spinning studio and juice bar opened in December 2013, featuring one-hour-long classes several times each week. Most classes are at 9:00 a.m., 12:15 p.m., and 5:30 p.m., however there are a few at the bright and early hour of 6:00 a.m. and as late as 6:00 p.m. The studio is open for one class on Saturdays, at least given the current schedule.

Keep on pedaling! That is the motto in each class while riders push to the beat of fast-paced music. The instructors and owners estimate people burn between 500 and 800 calories each hour, although every person burns through calories at a different pace and amount.

Let's just say Steve and Brittney looked/sounded like they had been through an entire class, but really only pedaled to a couple of songs! For a full schedule, costs, memberships, etc. you can go to The juice bar is the other beneficial component of the studio, offering up some healthy smoothies and fruit/vegetable blends for pre or post ride consumption.
