Have you always wanted to try indoor cycling or "spinning," but you're not sure where to start? This introductory spin fusion class is designed just for you! Join us for 30 minutes of spinning, followed by 15 minutes of upper body strength training and finishing with 15 minutes of stretching — all geared with first-timers in mind. Check out the newly renovated spin room and let us take you for a ride under the lights. You can do it, we will help! Wear sneakers and bring a water bottle.


Walking Meditation with Rachael Leonard

  • 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 11
  • Meet outside the East Gym, Recreation Center
  • Register

Walking meditation is both simple and challenging. It's simple in that it involves the intention of attending to the full experience of walking: all of the body moving through space, starting and stopping, changing directions, moving your physical form from place to place. The challenging element is becoming aware of what the mind is doing. Is it hurrying the body, making it unaware of its movement? Is it relaxed or carrying tension?


Please join us for this time of compassionate exploration of both body and mind in walking meditation. Please dress comfortably for movement. We plan to go outside and visit the Labyrinth but in the event of inclement weather, we will stay inside at the East Gym.


Get Your Gotcha Bike

Want to ride a bike for free without having to bring your own to campus? The Binghamton University Bike Share program offers free Gotcha Bike rentals to students, faculty and staff. Learn more about the Binghamton Bike Share program and Gotcha Bikes in this hands-on session.


Join Campus Recreation's Outdoor Pursuits staff as we show you how to find and reserve a bike using the mobile Gotcha Bike app. After unlocking the bikes, we will take a scenic ride around campus and end the session with a discussion of the different Gotcha bike rack locations on campus. Meet outside the East Gym.
