## What RPM should I ride my stationary bike at?

Aim to maintain a cadence (measured on the cycle console in revolutions per minute or RPMs) of 80 to 100 RPMs on “flat ground” (low to moderate resistance) and 60 to 80 RPMs on “hills” (moderate to high resistance). If you find yourself struggling to maintain 60 RPMs, decrease the resistance.

## How do you convert RPM to mph on an exercise bike?

Multiply the circumference by the RPMs. In the example, if the bike’s gauge read 500 RPMs, then you would multiply 500 by 63, resulting in 31,500 inches per minute. Multiply inches per minute by 60 to calculate inches per hour. In the example, you would have 1,890,000 inches per hour.

**How do you calculate RPM on a spin bike?**

If your bike doesn’t have a cadence computer on the console, you can figure out RPM by counting your pedal strokes for six seconds and then multiplying by 10. Sixty to 80 RPM is a good general range for climbs. For seated or standing runs, aim for 90 to 110 RPM, says Figueroa.

**Is RPM a good workout?**

#### Is RPM harder than spin?

The short answer is there is really no difference. The long answer is: Whether you should use the word Spinning®, RPM™ or indoor cycling comes down to what cycle, instructor and training program you use.

**Is RPM considered HIIT?**
