Heartrate indication & RPM

In each workout, the recommended percentage of your maximum heart rate is shown on screen for each music track. This is an indication of the intensity at that moment and is linked to the track zone of the music track. The zones are structured as follows:

  • Track zone 1 - Heart rate at 50 - 60% of maximum heart rate
  • Track zone 2 - Heart rate at 60 - 70% of maximum heart rate
  • Track zone 3 - Heart rate at 70 - 80% of maximum heart rate
  • Track zone 4 - Heart rate at 80 - 90% of maximum heart rate
  • Track zone 5 - Heart rate at 90 - 100% of maximum heart rate

You can calculate an indication of your maximum heart rate using the formula: 220 - your age = maximum heart rate. Don't have a heart rate monitor? Then listen carefully to the instructor's guidance. Also, based on factors like breathing, you can get a good indication of whether you are cycling at the right intensity at that moment.


During some Scenic Rides, the instructor's RPM values are also shown on screen. RPM stands for Revolutions Per Minute and indicates how high the pedal cadence is at that moment. If you have a bike with an RPM monitor, you can see if you have the correct pedal cadence.

NOTE: The heart rate zones, RPM values, and instructor's guidance are only indicators. Signals from your own body always take precedence. CycleMasters is not liable in any way for any physical injury resulting from following the instructions in the CycleMasters classes.
