Sharing ideas and insights from around the world, Ride High is a free digital magazine that embraces and champions the very best of indoor cycling across the whole fitness industry.

  • Riding for brain health   A recent cycling event raised over £58,000 for new charity Head for Change, but for former rugby international Alix Popham, cycling is also key to slowing his own cognitive decline.
  • Artificial intelligence. Real results.   Pitch-perfect marketing, optimised schedules, fine-tuned instructor line-ups, enhanced yield… AI can transform your GX operation, and your club, says expert Ian Mullane.
