ICG® Riding Techniques - technical key:


Seated Road (SERO):

This technique is ideal for warm-up, cool-down and recovery during an indoor cycling workout.
It is important to note the following:
Participants should ride with light to medium resistance.
This technique does not have to be delivered using beat matching the music. This type of riding is sometimes known as "let it roll". The pedal speed should be no higher than 100 RPM for L1 and120 RPM from L2 upwards. In the warm-up, a maximum pedal speed of 100 RPM applies at all levels. In the cool down, the speed should always be below 100 RPM.

Color Zones:

Warm Up: white – blue

Main Part: white – red

Cool Down: white – blue



Seated Climb (SECL):

The seated climb technique builds on the seated road. This exercise simulates riding uphill whilst seated. The cadence for the technique in the L1 and L2 class is a pedal speed of 50-72 RPM. At L3 and above the cadence can be extended to a pedal speed of 50-80 RPM.

Main Part: blue - red



Standing Climb (STCL):

We always begin the standing section coming out of the Seated Climb. The cadence for this technique at L1 and L2 is 50-72 RPM. From L3 the cadence can be extended to a pedal speed of 50-80 RPM. At pedal speeds between 50-60 RPM, it is possible to simulate very steep mountain climbs. A higher resistance is used for this purpose.

Main Part: green - red



Jumps (JU):

Jumps consist of alternating between being seated and standing. The cadence for the technique is a pedal speed of 50-72 RPM for L1 and L2 and 50-80 RPM from L3 upwards. To get used to the movement we start with 16-beat intervals and then reduce to 8-beat and 4-beat intervals, depending on the ability level.

Main Part: green - red



Standing Jogging (STJO):

This position corresponds to standing climb and differs in terms of speed and resistance. The pedal speed is 80-100 RPM. Since the workload is high owing to the higher speed, the time intervals should not be too long.

Main Part: blue - red



Wave Riding (WR):

Here we simulate the movement of weight on the bike, such as when riding a forest trail, when riding down into a hole or down a staircase or ridge. The movement is made by shifting the buttocks backwards and forwards. The buttocks should always remain positioned above the saddle. The movements should be short, dynamic and fluid. The pedal speed is 50-80 RPM.

Main Part: green - red




Seated/ Standing Hillspeed Overtake (SE HSPO/ ST HSPO):

This technique simulates the overtaking of a slow group of cyclists on a mountain when seated or standing. We increase the resistance again shortly before increasing the speed. When performing the hill-speed technique, a maximum pedal speed of 120 RPM (seated) or 100 RPM (standing) is not exceeded. The mountain is ridden in the seated or standing climb positions with a pedal speed of 50-80 RPM. During the overtake phase, the pedal speed is increased to a maximum of 100/120 RPM.

Main Part – Seated: blue - red

Main Part – Standing: green - red
